Accommodation Description

Two miles from the popular Georgian market town of Richmond, tucked up a narrow lane, off the main road in the village of Skeeby is a home from home, cosy holiday cottage…The Farthings.

The Farthings is a barn conversion that has recently been decorated to a high standard and now offers very comfortable accommodation for 3 people in two bedrooms, one double and one single bedroom, on the first floor. The family shower room is also on the first floor with a large walk in shower, basin and WC.

The living accommodation, on the ground floor, is spacious and extremely comfortable with high quality furnishings, a multi-fuel stove and gas central heating throughout. The modern décor is complimented by traditional cottage features which adds to the cosiness of this holiday home such as the beamed ceilings and a combination of sash and picture windows.

Entry to the cottage is into the large and modern galley kitchen which is fitted with all the essential equipment you should require during your stay. Leading off from the kitchen, down three steps is the living room. The living room is bright and cheerful and benefits from duel aspect windows. This is the perfect room to relax with a glass of wine in the evening in front of the warmth of the open fire or the 40” flat screen TV with Freeview.

The cottage also offers a separate dining room, which again is light and airy thanks to the duel aspect windows – a fabulous spot to enjoy a meal as a family as the oak table and chair set seats 4 comfortably. What’s more this holiday cottage offers free WiFi.

This holiday home is ideal for anyone wishing to stay in a central spot between two of the National Parks – the Yorkshire Dales and the York Moors. There are so many places to visit local from the Richmond Castle to Easby Abbey both only a short distance away. Or jump in the car, adorn some walking boots and hike up many of the fells in the Yorkshire Dales such as Fremington Edge or Gunnerside Gyhll.

Although there is no parking immediately at the cottage, parking can be found just at the bottom of the lane at the village hall car park.

To ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible all bed linen and towels are provided and electric and gas is included in the rental price.

Richmond was founded by the Normans in 1071, and is overflowing with history, mostly centred around one of the finest tourist attractions in North Yorkshire – Richmond Castle. The castle, finished in 1086, is one of the greatest Norman fortresses in the UK and well worth a visit, not only to hear the history of the unruly North but to see the stunning views of the Dales from the castle keep and the tranquil Cockpit garden. ...
