With beautiful rural surroundings and a hot tub for your sole use, you’ll soon forget the rush of daily life.
You’ll feel at home as soon as you step foot in Flints Cottage. You’re welcomed into the dining room to begin with. Light, neutral walls and dark wood furniture make the room feel atmospheric. The large dining table is perfect for socialising and entertaining. Gather your loved ones together to enjoy merry evening meals and long breakfasts followed by lazy mornings.
From the dining room, you’ll find the kitchen. With light walls and white brick tiles, this space is clean and sophisticated. The stylish kitchen cabinets tie the room together creating a seriously elegant space. Featuring a traditional Aga, oven, hob, kettle, microwave, toaster and fridge – the cottage has everything you’ll need to cook up a storm. The kitchen also includes a dishwasher and washing machine so you can make full use of the self-catering facilities.
Head back towards the dining room which leads onto the living area. Traditional in style, this cosy space is the perfect place to relax. On cold nights, fire up the log burner and cosy up on the sofa. Lose track of time reading a good book or switch on the TV, which is also equipped with Now TV, to catch up on your favourite shows.
There is also a cloakroom downstairs.
Take the stairs to the first floor and here you’ll find three bedrooms, a main bathroom and a sunroom.

In the sunroom, you can relax on the modern corner sofa. Start your day here with a morning coffee or wind down with a cup of tea (or a glass of something bubbly) as the sun goes down. Leading out onto the patio area, you’ll find a secure garden space and a hot tub. Perfect for relaxing in peace and quiet, you can use the hot tub as much as you'd like throughout your stay.

Known as the jewel in the heart of North Yorkshire, Richmond is a market town with plenty of charm. Despite the many cafes, bistros, restaurants, pubs and bars, little has actually changed in Richmond throughout the centuries. There is plenty of history for you to discover. Enjoy a live show at The Georgian Theatre, which is actually the oldest theatre in Europe. Look out of the bedroom windows and you’ll see the magnificent Richmond Castle. An interactive museum was recently added to the site so it’s definitely worth a visit!
Just a stone’s throw from the cottage, you’ll find The Station. This gorgeous Old Victorian Railway Station has been given a new lease of life with a mix of artisan shops, a cinema, an art gallery and a café bar. You can sample beer brewed in house from Richmond Brewing company. The café bar also won the best café in the Herriot Awards recently so you’re in for a real treat.
Richmond is fantastic for walking. There is a great river walk to Easby Abbey which is a free site to visit from English Heritage. Another beautiful walking area is Richmond Falls which is just down the hill from the marketplace. When the weather is nice, we recommend having a picnic at The Batts.
Darlington train station is 12 miles from Richmond and has great links to cities like Newcastle, Manchester and Edinburgh.
Richmond also has great bus routes. The X26 and X27 travel from Darlington through to Colburn, with stops in Catterick. The scenic Dalesbus has routes to Ribblehead, Hawes and Bentham.
