There is also a family bathroom, complete with a roll top bath. On the ground floor you will find three more bedrooms, one of which is self-contained and has its own private entrance, kitchenette and en-suite shower room - it is a great space to retreat for peace and tranquillity and to soak up the beautiful views of the garden. The two further bedrooms include a kingsize room with an en-suite shower room and access to the bike store, and a bedroom with both a double and single bed. You can also make use of the large games room complete with a Smart TV, pool table and a selection of games.

Situated just a short, picturesque walk from the beautiful historic town of Richmond, dominated by an imposing Norman castle. It offers panoramic views, ancient alleys, museums, monuments, restaurants, markets and shops. Richmond is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and offers a perfect base to explore the treasures of the past. Discover the oldest Georgian theatre in England, Middleham Castle and Bolton Castle. There is a former Victorian railway station nearby, which is now a thriving hub of artisan bakers, brewers, restaurant, cinema, art gallery and sports facilities. Within an hours’ drive you can visit the medieval city of York, Harrogate, with its Royal baths, and Durham city, with its World Heritage cathedral. The Lake District is close by and has been awarded Unesco World Heritage Status for its outstanding beauty.

Plenty of walking and cycling opportunities can be enjoyed in all directions. Howe Villa is a short walk away from the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the National Trust land Round Howe with its various walks is a stone’s throw from the house over the river.

There are many attractions nearby including Raby Castle, Bowes Museum, the popular city of York, and Hamsterley Forest with its mountain biking trails. Howe Villa is ideal for those seeking a comfortable and relaxing holiday and offers a perfect base for exploring all North Yorkshire. There are historic sites to visit at Rievaulx and Fountains Abbey, stately homes at Nunnington Hall, Castle Howard, and numerous quaint villages with traditional inns serving good food and local ales. To entertain children there is the magical Forbidden Corner, Lightwater Valley theme park, Flamingo Land, Diggerland, Beamish Museum, Go Ape in Dalby Forest and Thorpe Perrow with its birds of prey. Travel east and you will find the beautiful Yorkshire Heritage Coast, home to the popular fishing villages of Whitby and Runswick Bay. Howe Villa really is the perfect place to enjoy a family get together in luxury and an ideal base to get out and explore some of the most beautiful natural splendour in the country. Shop ½ mile, pubs and restaurants ¾ mile.
