A picture paints a thousand words.
With its imperious Norman castle keep, timeless cobbled market place, rambling river, iconic doorstep fells, moors and dales, there is no doubting that Richmond is a visual feast. It really is a case of seeing is believing to appreciate just how beautiful this town & the area really is.
Following a thorough makeover, Little Cobblestone is now open and ready for business Our 2 bedroomed holiday let cottage makes an ideal town & country companion for sightseeing, rest and relaxation. Nestled neatly behind the historic marketplace is a modern home away from home with a great twist. We have teamed up with seriously talented local photographer, Guy Carpenter to bring the outdoors indoors.
Stunning photographic prints adorn the walls drawing the visitor into “must see” vistas and views. Each print is carefully chosen to inspire exploration both near and far, offering a totally unique and local insight, removing the guess work on where to go and what to see.
Good holidays make lasting memories. Staying at Little Cobblestone there’s no need to trust your stay to memory. All the prints on display are available for sale, as are postcards and a 2017 postcard calendar; just ask us for details or visit Guy’s website, gullwingphotography.co.uk
We are aiming to combine Guy’s photography into our very own local walks guide, so you can track down each location for yourself. What are you waiting for book your stay now by visiting our website Littlecobblestone.co.uk
