Perched on a hill above the fast-flowing river Swale, Richmond occupies a stunning spot.

Just a short five minute drive away, there is plenty to explore from its Norman Castle to the unique Georgian Theatre Royal. A few miles further and you can find yourself in the midst of James Herriot country, the Yorkshire Dales.

If you fancy a more Urban experience, the Cities of Durham and Newcastle are within an hour’s drive North, with Harrogate and York the same Southbound.

For visitors with sporting interests we can arrange all the country activities such as golf, paintballing, shooting or fishing and can point out the direction for walks, historical monuments and sites, and the best features and hot spots of the wild and rugged Yorkshire Dales.
