Our very special location

The Old Vicarage enjoys one of the best locations in the Yorkshire Dales and quite possibly the whole of England!

It is at the centre of picturesque Swaledale – one of the most northerly dales of the National Park – and only a short drive from the historic market town of Richmond with its famous Norman castle, spectacular waterfalls and impressive Georgian architecture.

The house itself is set on its own and enjoys perfect peace and tranquility. Nature surrounds you and the only sounds are the calls of the wild birds, the nearby river and occasional conversation of grazing farm animals. It is quite simply the perfect rural retreat.

Access to the property is via an unmade farm track. It is perfectly navigable but does require careful driving at slow speeds, expecially during the winter months.

There are numerous walking and cycling routes direct from the doorstep, so there will be days when you may choose not to get in the car at all but The Old Vicarage is also perfectly situated to explore the Dales with its many activity opportunities and exciting visitor attractions. Suggestions for days out can be found on this website.
