One of the finest tourist attractions in North Yorkshire, this spectacular castle is perched on the edge of the charming market square of Richmond and overlooks the thundering Richmond falls. Primed with plenty of private picnic spots and romantic photo opportunities, the Castle is just a 20-minute walk from our luxury lodges in the Yorkshire Dales. Step back in time to nearly 1,000 years ago when the castle was first built, strolling hand in hand through the ruins before cuddling up in the grassy ampitheatre at the heritage garden.


This jaw-dropping walk leads directly from the entrance gate at the foot of our woodland valley, leading explorers through pretty meadows, along the powerful River Swale and up into the Yorkshire hills. Along the way there are some beautiful places to sit and chat, share some of the famous locally baked treats from your travels into Richmond and snap some breath-taking photography of your loved one. 


Just a scenic, 30-minute drive from our luxury lodges in the Yorkshire Dales, these impressive falls on the River Ure are a notorious proposal spot. The summer light dappling through the forest, the pretty little villages and the intrinsic beauty of the crashing water are the perfect ingredients for a memorable moment!
