Ideally placed just a short walk from the bustling centre of this popular Swaledale market town, Vale View is a home from home house boasting private parking, private gardens and a fabulous view from the top floor over the Vale of York. There is covered and locked bike storage in the garage which is great for cycling enthusiasts and the Tour de Yorkshire is a regular feature for the town.
The semi-detached house is only a short walk from the centre of this popular Georgian market town with its shops, restaurants and cafés. It is ideally situated for guests wishing to explore the town as well as the picturesque landscape beyond. Historic Richmond sits cosily on the banks of the River Swale, as it has for nearly 1000 years, and is an architectural gem with its Norman castle, Georgian theatre, medieval abbey and picturesque market square, as well as museums, a cinema and great shopping. Richmond really does have lots to see and do for visitors. Sitting at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this charming house also makes the perfect base for walkers and cyclists to explore the countryside of Swaledale and the Yorkshire Dales. There are plenty of riverside and woodland walks nearby which continue into the wonderful countryside beyond. One of the most popular walks is Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, which passes through Richmond, and will take you through some breathtaking countryside with majestic views.
The property is in the perfect location to enjoy the wider area and visit one of the many pretty Yorkshire towns and villages, such as Thirsk, Ripon, Yarm, Pickering, Hawes or Reeth, all of which are close by. There is the opportunity for fishing at Brompton Lakes, which is just over 2 miles away, or you can watch the horse racing at Catterick and York racecourses. The cathedral city of Durham is just over half an hour away to the north of Richmond, and is certainly worth a day trip to explore, as is the medieval walled city of York with its wealth of visitor attractions. Richmond is perfectly situated for those wishing to explore both the outstanding natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Park. Beach 33 miles.
