School House

Sleeps 8 in Four Double Bedrooms with en-suite Bathrooms

Dating back to the Victorian period, The School House has been lovingly renovated throughout to create a beautifully-presented holiday home sat at the edge of Richmond, now offering a luxury accommodation for group getaways and special occasions in the Yorkshire Dales.

This newly renovated house has 4 double bedrooms, comfortably sleeping up to 8 guests. The mid-19th Century property was built in 1876 as a school for those who lived and worked on The Zetland Estate to have free education, and now offers a mix of timeless elegance and contemporary comforts, whilst set among the stunning Yorkshire countryside.

All bookings are arranged via our wonderful agents at Yorkshire Escapes.

The School House is situated between Gilling West and the market town of Richmond, host to its weekly market and lots of small independent businesses, pubs and eateries. Richmond is also home to the historic Georgian Theatre, a local independent cinema, and a 950 year old castle! The River Swale flows through Richmond which offers some lovely walking routes and within a short drive from the house is the North Yorkshire Dales National Park.
