Day One of Autumn Adventures…

Throughout
Autumn there is nothing better than getting wrapped up warm and exploring the
ever changing crisp and colourful North Yorkshire landscape whilst at its best
before retiring with a glass of wine or local ale in front of a roaring log
fire, 

it just doesn’t get much better... 

Follow us every day throughout October as we
explore Yorkshire at its best and discover the finest days out and places to
visit in the local area, all within an hours drive from any of our luxury
holiday homes.



Day One.. Richmond, North
Yorkshire


When visiting North Yorkshire, make sure you
make a day trip (or two) to Richmond, one of Britain’s most beautiful market
towns, with it’s 11th Century castle, fine historic buildings, museum,
plenty of riverside walks and a large cobbled market place with a good choice
of pubs and restaurants to choose from…



Richmond is within walking distance of many of
our luxury holiday properties… For our guests staying at Brompton Lakes, wrap
up warm, dig out your walking boots and follow the trail through acres of picturesque
countryside, via the impressive ruins of Easby Abbey before walking across
Richmond Bridge with fabulous riverside views to The Station, a stunning
Victorian railway building with a café, award winning bakery and even a cinema.

After you have filled yourself with fabulous
cakes and coffee from the Station, stroll along the fast-flowing River Swale and
treat yourself to an ice cream whilst taking in the tranquil sounds of Richmond
Falls. Be sure to visit Richmond Castle, one of the greatest Norman fortresses
in Britain, with breathtaking views across the Yorkshire Dales, interactive
exhibitions and a chance to stroll round the secluded Cockpit Garden.

Next stop is the Market Place, at the centre
of Richmond,

 

to browse the boutique shops
and tea rooms, before retiring for the evening at The Fleece Hotel, which has
been recently renovated and has an impressive cocktail menu and lots of local
yummy food to enjoy. (We recommend saving some space for the chocolate brownie
for desert too!)


On Saturdays make sure you don’t miss the
Saturday Market in the Market Place!
