We warmly welcome you to ‘The Castle House’ Boutique Bed & Breakfast in Richmond, North Yorkshire. Situated in the shadow of the famous castle, overlooking the historic town square of Richmond we are positioned in one of the most stunning parts of Richmond and the North Yorkshire Dales.
The Bed & Breakfast has recently been lovingly renovated extensively by Gordon & Sue Maughan the previous owners. Maintaining the houses’ original features whilst instilling an essence of boutique Bed and Breakfast luxury, comfort and affordability.
Having just completed some further refurbishments to this beautiful 18th century town house we can ensure that all our guests feel pampered whether you are taking a few days away from your busy life, on the Coast to Coast walk through the North Yorkshire Dales or on business in the North East .
We like to pride ourselves in taking time to look after all our visitors that want to enjoy the beautiful gateway to the North Yorkshire Dales, with exceptional panoramic views in this historical and quiet part of the town of Richmond. The Bed & Breakfast lends itself to the perfect position for those wishing to flavour Richmond and the North Yorkshire countryside at its best, even if it is for a very brief period.
Situated just off the main market place of the historic town of Richmond, there is no better place that is located within just a stone’s throw to the centre (1 minute walk) that is quiet, yet within easy reach of all amenities such as restaurants, public houses, book shops, banks, bakeries etc etc.
Each bespoke room has en-suite facilities, free Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions with free view, bathrobes, hairdryers, and tea and coffee making facilities to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. All guests are welcomed with a complimentary glass of wine, or tea/coffee on arrival and at night complimentary chocolates are left for you. Most importantly, you are welcomed in the morning for breakfast where you can choose from cereals and fresh fruit followed by a traditional English breakfast or smoked salmon & scrambled egg.
All guests have use of the communal dining & sitting room, where there is a small library of books and information on local attractions in the North Yorshire Dales and in Richmond.
We have both come from very different working backgrounds and spent a number of years travelling around the country staying in bed & breakfasts. It has, for a long time, been our dream to set up and run a guest house that we would ourselves enjoy staying in, bringing what we feel are the ‘important’ attributes together to encompass a place to remember, enjoy and feel pampered.
Now that 4 of our 5 children have fled the nest leaving us (and *Millie our beloved Golden Retriever, aged 11), we feel incredibly lucky to have found such a gem in one of the most beautiful parts of North Yorkshire & are now able to fulfil our dreams.
We hope that you enjoy your stay with us. Please do let us know if there is anything we can do to make it all the more special.
*To ensure that The Castle House’ remains clean and hygienic, please note that ‘Millie’ is not allowed in any area of the house other than our private quarters on the ground floor)

We hope you enjoy your stay, your hosts - Lucy and Ian
