Head for North Yorkshire and discover a boutique hideaway you can call your own.
Lovingly restored into a luxury B&B near to the County Durham borders, Hollymoor House in Richmond, North Yorkshire is a beautiful, family run bed and breakfast perfectly located between the Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Moors. Set amongst manicured lawns, and overlooking its own private lake, this is a tranquil escape from everyday life.
Owners Caroline and Andrew have opened their striking house to guests, and as previous restaurateurs, this is a fabulous place for food lovers to sample some of the finest dishes in the county. Akin to a trendy supper club, professional chef Caroline will whip up a creative three-course menu, deserving of any top restaurant, with locally sourced Yorkshire ingredients. She’ll even incorporate your favourite foods, and don’t forget breakfast, including fresh ‘estate to plate’ eggs with your full English.
True to their word, you really can make this place your own when you book exclusive use of the entire house, making it ideal for celebrations and family breaks. And for the few nights you are there, you’re invited to enjoy their home as they would. Unwind in the open-plan living areas with a good book, linger over lunch and a glass of carefully-selected wine in the ‘state-of-the-art’ kitchen complete with soaring beams, or stroll around the peaceful gardens.
Bedecked in muted Farrow & Ball colours and antique-style furnishings, the rooms harmonise seamlessly with the character of the barn. Add in a vaulted living area, stylish log burner and a showstopping kitchen, and you’ll never want to leave. Cosy but chic, Hollymoor House strikes the perfect balance between a homely retreat and a small luxury hotel in Yorkshire.
If you can pull yourself away, ramble among undulating hills through the heart-stirring Yorkshire Dales. Build up an appetite hiking through Swaledale’s wildflower meadows past old limestone field barns, or meander through heather moorland tops and alongside pretty rivers where the living is breezy. You can also visit historic Richmond Castle and the town’s lovely Georgian theatre, and with Hollymoor House being just two miles from the border of County Durham, you are within easy reach of the magnificent Durham Castle.
