Richmond Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful, spacious house with 4 bedrooms, gorgeous gardens + luxury barn

Luxurious living, steeped in history: Dating from 1820 and fully renovated in 2000 and 2012, the Coach House and the Dairy Cottage were originally part of Stanwick Hall, the home of the Duchess of Northumberland. The Coach House and Dairy Cottage both enjoy great privacy and their own gardens, but can also be combined to form elegant and spacious accommodation for up to 13 guests in great comfort.

Details for the Coach House

This luxurious Yorkshire Dales country house has 4 comfortable bedrooms, a large, well-equipped kitchen with Aga, spacious lounge with log burner leading into a beautiful conservatory overlooking south-facing, private gardens. Please click on the link below for more details.

Details for the Dairy Cottage

Converted in 2012, this architect-designed delightful hideaway is all on one level and has its own large garden. The large living area (8m x 5m) is open-plan, with a dining area at one end and a well equipped kitchen leading off. There is a lovely log burner, a large roof atrium and wide arched glass doors leading into the gardens. Leading off the lounge is a spacious bedroom, again with hand-made double arched glass doors opening onto private south-facing gardens.Dairy Cottage is flooded with light whatever the weather and the use high quality natural materials throughout - oak floors and hand-made doors, Jerusalem stone in the shower room and a solid wood kitchen - create a calm and peaceful environment for relaxation.

Environmental sustainability was important to us when we designed this conversion, as was the need to stay true to the original building and re-use as much of the original stone and other materials as possible, so the Dairy Cottage has underfloor heating supplied by a wood-pellet boiler to keep it cozy and warm in the winter months.

Further details about the Coach House

Approached through the tall sandstone gate piers and into a spacious driveway the stunning architecture of the Coach House will make your stay a special one, whether you are entertaining in the cozy dining room, cooking on the Aga with friends in the roomy kitchen, sitting by the fire in the spacious lounge or simply relaxing with a good read in the light and airy conservatory or mezzanine. Children love this place - they can explore and play safely to their hearts' content whilst parents can relax and enjoy this rather special Grade II listed home with all the modern conveniences.The house has a wing with 2 double bedrooms, a triple room and a bathroom with a walk-in shower which means that 2 families can enjoy complete privacy. The spacious master suite is the only bedroom on the first floor. It has French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony with private, uninterrupted south-facing views over beautiful parkland , a Super King bed and ensuite shower room. Also on the first floor is a large mezzanine for lounging and browsing through the house library of books and games.

In the East wing of the Coach House there is a very large kitchen, with a breakfast table that seats 8 people, all the modern appliances you might need, and a French door opening onto a sun-trap with outdoor seating overlooking the south-facing gardens and parkland beyond. There is a beautiful dining room that seats 8 in comfort and this has a lovely wood-burning stove to provide a cozy ambiance for your entertaining. The spacious lounge has bi-fold glass doors that open into the large conservatory, providing a 34’x18’ living area. There is also a very large utility room for all your outdoor gear, an additional fridge-freezer and washing and drying facilities. In all there are over 3000 sq ft of living area, so there is plenty of room for everyone to find a quiet corner as well as 4 spacious reception rooms to socialise in. There is everything you need at the Coach House – it’s a real home from home.

Decorated to a high standard, with hardwood flooring and 300 year old stone pillars in the impressive entrance hall, the Coach House is stylishly furnished and very well equipped. You will enjoy fast broadband Internet access; high quality Hi-Fi in the lounge for music lovers; very well equipped kitchen with a 5 burner gas hob in addition to the Aga, NEFF combination microwave and electric fan oven, juicer, bread maker, ice cream maker, 2 fridges, dishwasher, quality stereo and beautiful garden views. There is a range of garden furniture and large barbecue. Parking for up to 5 cars. Walled gardens and electric gates give total privacy.

Things to see and do: The Coach House is situated in peaceful, rolling countryside between the River Swale and the Tees, on the ancient site of the 2000 year old Brigantes settlement. Children love exploring the Coach House and its gardens, playing table tennis or playing on their bikes on the private roads. There is an abundance of historical monuments within 20 minutes' drive - castles, abbeys, earthworks, villages and towns to name but a few. Walkers will love the Yorkshire Dales, England's largest and most impressive National Park is just 15 minutes' drive away and the Lake District is just over an hour's drive with sailing, hiking, wind surfing and much more. Enjoy horse riding from the nearby stables (you can walk there!) on the perfect network of bridleways or play a round of golf at the nearby course at Richmond in the middle of beautiful countryside. Going slightly further afield, explore the stunning North Yorkshire coastline and enjoy the delights of Whitby, just over an hour's drive away.

The reason I loved the house was because it is a big house and we played hide and seek a lot because I love that game and I can't really play it at my house because there aren't many hiding places and there's lots of hiding places here at your house. My little brother and my cousin (who is even litteler than my little brother) absoalutely loved the toys but thank you so much it's a lovely house and it was really tidy. I'm really sorry if the house is a mess when you come back! We will try to tidy up as much as we can before we go. Hope you have a lovely life in this beautiful house.
