Blacksmith's Cottage description

Holiday home
Blacksmith's Cottage is an end-terraced cottage the village of Hudswell, near the charming town of Richmond. The cottage has a king-size double room on the first floor, with the rest of the accommodation downstairs comprising of a bathroom, kitchen diner with patio doors outside, and a sitting room with woodburner. Outside is a patio with furniture, and parking can be found on the roadside. Blacksmith's Cottage is ideally placed for enjoying Richmond, taking walks from the door, or heading into the Dales and Moors to make the most of your stay in this beautiful region.

Hudswell is a small village located just two miles the town of Richmond in Swaledale. Set in rolling countryside, the village boasts a high street with old houses lining the route, and a local pub, the George and Dragon. Like many village pubs, it recently fell on difficult times, so the villagers clubbed together and now run it as a 'Community Pub Initiative'. The market town of Richmond stands to the north of the River Swale. The town grew up around its castle and today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed by the castle or alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls. Narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled Market Place (which has a weekly market and monthly farmers' market) and there are numerous shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Excellent property, a little hem in a wonderful friendly village. Ideally situated for all amenities and within walking distance of Richmond. It ticked all the boxes we had a fab time. We recommend the village pub, we had an excellent meal and real ales. The shop was staffed by friendly villagers and had everything that we needed.

The cottage was perfect, the best I have ever stayed in! It was really cosy. A lovely owner who met you on arrival and showed you around. We didn't want to leave! We have booked to go again at the end of the year and I'm encouraging lots of friends to go and stay and see for themselves how good it is!

A delightful cottage lacking nothing. We were made to feel at home instantly by the warm welcome from the owner. A lot of thought has gone into presenting a holiday home of the highest standard. Thank you for making our holiday so relaxing.

The accommodation was excellent, warm and inviting. In particular the kitchen was a bright and comfortable environment to prepare and eat meals. The owner gave a good introduction to the property, offered good advice on the area and was on hand to deal with any issues that might arise. Although the weather for our week could be classed as soggy we really enjoyed our holiday and will be back, hopefully when the climate is more kind.

We have just returned from a relaxing week in Blacksmith's Cottage, a wonderful find. It was cosy, very comfortable, well equipped and in an excellent location for lots of walks and attractions. The locals were very friendly and there is an excellent pub a few doors away. Everything you require is on hand in the cottage, which is maintained to a very high standard. Our Jack Russell was comfortable too!

This beautiful cottage far exceeded both my husband's and my expectations. As soon as we arrived we were blown away with how amazing it was. It was refurbished and furnished to a very high standard and a great deal of money and thought had gone into the layout. The Cottage was very warm - in addition to the log burner in the sitting room there were also wall heaters in every room. In the kitchen everything was available from detergent down to bin liners, we just had to supply our own food. The bathroom boasted a large shaped bath with two overhead showers, one as large as a dinner plate and the other a small one that could be hand held. It had a heated towel rail plus underfloor heating. Carefully positioned skylights had been fitted throughout the Cottage which gave the cottage incredible light during the day. Outside the French windows at the back of the Cottage was a small enclosed patio with potted plants which were tended to regularly. There was also a very beautiful table and chairs for us to use if we chose to eat outside. Outside the front of the cottage was a black wrought iron bench as well. As well as the usual TV, Freeview and DVD player we also had the use of a CD player and WiFi had been fitted the week before we arrived. This proved to be very reliable. DVD's, games, books and local brochures were also all supplied.

This cottage has been recently converted and offers homely and luxurious accommodation in this hill top village, 5 minutes drive from Richmond. It is very well equipped with up to date quality appliances and all those little extras to make you feel at home. The owners were very welcoming. There were many country walks from the doorstep and the local pub only yards away served excellent beer and food. Best Sunday Lunch we have eaten in years! We would love to return again for a relaxing break.

The owner had thought of and provided all of the refinements which turn a comfortable cottage into a true home from home. The best cottage we've stayed in, by far.
