The Details...

A six-bedroom Georgian house on the banks of the River Swale, Howe Villa gives up to 13 guests a stunning view over the Round Howe, a National Trust Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walks along the river and in the nearby woods will be hard to resist, while the house’s own beautiful gardens are notably impressive too.

This grand home is just a short walk from the North Yorkshire town of Richmond, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and not so far from the Pennines and North York Moors. Few towns in England could claim such a picturesque location, and the Grade II listed Howe Villa feels suitably stately, retaining many original features and blending period and contemporary furnishings.

The main living areas are on the middle floor of the house, allowing you to enjoy the views of the river at their best. There’s a drawing room with a baby grand piano, a dining room, and a living room with a warming wood burner and Smart TV. In the kitchen and breakfast room you’ll find a two oven Aga, plus there’s a useful utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

On the floors above and below this, you have the six bedrooms. Upstairs, three doubles with two king-size beds and a four-poster to choose from – this room also offers a wonderful en suite. Downstairs, there are two bedrooms with an en suite, one of which is self-contained with a private entrance and garden view. The final bedroom has both a double and single bed. Additionally on this level, there’s the games room, offering a pool table, Smart TV and more.

A large, enclosed garden forms a big part of the Howe Villa experience, with a gas barbecue, garden furniture, patio and courtyard to enjoy. The grounds extend to one and a half acres, and offer the chance to fish too (you won’t even need to bring your own rod).

Richmond has much to see, including the England’s oldest Georgian theatre and its Norman castle. As well as the aforementioned Dales, it also puts you within an hour of some of northern England’s finest cities, like York, Harrogate and Durham – not to mention the ever-lovely Lake District. You could even head for the coast and be in charming Whitby in less than 90 minutes.
