Gilling West 0.5 miles. A group of magnificent properties, sympathetically converted from lovely old stone barns and buildings and set in part around an idyllic courtyard, 5 minutes' walk from the delightful village of Gilling West. There are two lakes which offer fly and coarse fishing, plus the owners live in the farmhouse and provide a warm, friendly welcome. The properties can be booked individually or as a group to accommodate larger gatherings.

The property

An outstanding stone-built barn conversion with a treehouse hot tub offering amazing views, situated in an idyllic courtyard position, just 5 minutes’ walk from the pretty village of Gilling West.

Nestled in a beautiful rural setting, this first class Richmond cottage is a real delight and provides the most perfect romantic retreat.

Individually styled to a very high standard, the cottage seamlessly combines contemporary and character features including old beams, exposed stonework and a feature arch window overlooking the courtyard.

The bedroom boasts a four poster king-size bed with a luxury en-suite walk-in rain shower, and there’s also a spacious open plan living area with a beautiful kitchen and an electric woodburner-style stove.

This is one of our premier Yorkshire Dales cottages with luxury touches throughout.

Outside you’ll find the hot tub, located in the branches of a tree to provide something a little bit different, and offering excellent views across the Yorkshire countryside.

Ideally situated within a short walk of the village centre, from this Gilling West cottage are lovely walks through the surrounding countryside and an excellent local pub nearby, while Richmond, just a couple of miles away, offers a fascinating Norman castle, a weekly market, old curiosity shops set along narrow alleyways and the picturesque River Swale.

A superb Gilling West cottage for exploring Swaledale, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, York Minster and the North York Moors.

Richmond 3 miles; Barnard Castle 11 miles.

The attractive and peaceful Dales village of Gilling West, winner of the "Yorkshire in Bloom" award, is situated in lovely rolling countryside just a few miles to the north of the popular market town of Richmond. The village itself has a lovely old church, two real ale pubs both serving food and a village shop/post office. There are footpaths and bridleways in every direction and fishing is available nearby. Nearby Richmond grew up around its castle, famously situated high above the River Swale, with panoramic views of the river. Today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed such as the Castle Walk - a dramatic terrace walk beneath the castle walls - or alternatively walk alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls to enjoy. Within the town, 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. The Georgian Theatre is one of the oldest surviving theatres in the country with visitors enjoying its regular productions all year round. An ideal location for exploring all of Swaledale, Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales.
