Private Outdoor Courtyard

The Old Brewery boasts a private courtyard with outdoor furniture where guests can soak up the sun and enjoy dining alfresco style during their stay!

The Space
On the ground floor, you’ll find a newly-modernised kitchen, mixing the stylish grey theme of the house with quality brass fixtures and fittings. It has everything you need with an integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer and oven in this wonderful cooking space. The property also boasts an additional utility room and larder space with breakfast bar seating. Move through to the dining room and you’ll find a grand solid wood table and industrial style chairs with seating for 12 guests, creating an ideal setting for dinners together after a long day. On this floor there are also two lounge areas with a range of welcoming sofas and armchairs offering plenty of seating and relaxation space. On top of this, there’s a separate games room with a pool table for families and friends to enjoy, and you’ll also find the first king size bedroom, with en suite toilet facilities, on this floor.

Follow the unique and upcycled artwork that helps give the property its character up the stairs to the first floor, where a further five classically decorated bedrooms await. There are 3 king rooms, one double and one twin room. Each room also features signature piece furniture and plenty of storage for your clothes and accessories during your stay. Carrying on the property’s industrial but welcoming theme in each, three of the bedrooms also have modern en suite showers or baths. There’s also a spacious and modern family bathroom for everyone to use.

Outside the rear of the property is a quaint courtyard space, peaceful enough for soaking up the summer sun, or for al fresco dining and evening drinks at the new outdoor furniture being introduced.

For those bigger groups needing even more space, The Old Brewery also has a separate property within its grounds, which is available to book. The Annexe provides an additional three king size bedrooms in a self-contained property, so booking both together would give room to sleep up to 19 or 20 guests. This would be perfect for large walking groups, or friend and family get togethers, so please call our team to discuss booking both properties.

Host & Stay are committed to our owners that their homes are protected during bookings. For this reason, we require all of our guests to transfer a £250.00 Damage Deposit (subject to a £10.00 administration charge) or, to purchase an Accidental Damage Waiver for £25.00 which will cover you for up to £500.00 of accidental damage during your stay.

The Old Brewery is in the heart of the picturesque market town of Richmond, close to the banks of the River Swale. From the property you are just moments away from a range of independent shops, cafés and pubs in the beautiful cobbled market place, as well as the spectacular Richmond Castle – one of the finest surviving Norman castles in the UK. So, if you’re planning on taking it easy while you’re here, there’s plenty to see and do right on your doorstep.

But, like many others, you may prefer to spend your time getting out and about walking or cycling - and what better place to do it than the stunning Yorkshire Dales. As part of the famous Coast-to-Coast route, Richmond is the perfect stopping point for those taking on one of the most scenic walking challenges in the country.

Or if you’re after some one-day routes, you’re spoiled for choice with paths to Easby Abbey and different length walks following the riverside, all starting from right near the property. You’re also just a short trip from longer routes around Marske and Marrick, as well as Whitcliffe Wood – so there’s something for everyone.

Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed by your surroundings. From waterfalls and caves, to flowing fields and quaint villages, a trip around the Dales is sure to be one you remember.

Getting Around
If you’re travelling by train, the nearest mainline station is 12 miles away in Darlington. From here you can reach London, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Newcastle.

The X26 and 29 buses will take you from the station to the heart of Richmond, just a couple of minutes’ walk away from The Old Brewery, while a number of other routes will connect you with the entire local area, including Ripon, Kirkby Lonsdale and Catterick.

Great house in a perfect location! Really appreciated the number of en-suites and the comfy bedrooms! Highly recommend!



It had everything we need. It was beautifully decorated and cozy. Didn't want to leave.<br/>Nothing



We stayed here to attend a friends wedding near by and had the most amazing stay. The house was perfect for what we needed and surpassed all expectations. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Each room had its own character and style - there was no “short straw” in the place!



Spacious, comfortable nicely decorated. Everything that you need is provided<br/>We had intermittent problems with no hot water from two of the showers. <br/>Quite a steep walk up to the market square



Great space for a family get together, separate reception rooms is great for large groups. would definitely stay again



Richmond is such a lovely town and the Old Brewery was a great base for our two families to enjoy everything that area has to offer.



Location lovely.House nice ,Lovely large table for my family to sit around<br/>I allready have a complaint in progress regarding cleanliness



A beautiful home! We all stayed for a friend's wedding and had the most fantastic time - loads of room and beds with lots of bathrooms. A great location for staying in Richmond too which is a lovely little town



We enjoyed our stay at the Old Brewery, A family gathering for a wedding. The house is spacious and the dining room table was perfect for everyone to eat together. The beds were comfy and the whole house was clean and in good condition. It looks just like the pictures! The games room was a great success. It is in a lovely spot down by the river in Richmond. A steep walk up to the town which has all the amenities you will need.

The Old Brewery is im the beautiful medieval market town of Richmond. There are numerous walks in the area, several delightful pubs amd restaurants, and it is a great base for exploring North Yorkshire.<br>The property itself, though, needs some work. The kitchen and dining room are beautiful. The living rooms are extremely comfortable (with the exception of one chair). The bedrooms and bathrooms each have their quirks and drawbacks. We had to repair one bed during our stay. Several doorknobs were loose and one of our party briefly got trapped in a bathroom. There is no key to the rubbish bins (and one neighbor stated thst she had called the property manager numerous times about this issue). <br>The biggest issue for our party of 12 international travelers on a two week holiday to the UK was that the washer and dryer were not in operation. The dryer only blew cold air and the washer wasn't even hooked up to water. The laundry shed was filthy. We ended up spending over a hundred pounds at the local cleaners to have our clothes washed and dried. We notified the property manager of this issue two days into our stay, and despite numerous assurances that a maintenance team would come and look at it, no one ever arrived. I now have to fill out more paperwork in order to get any compensation from the company. Host and Stay is not a good managemeny company and they do not do anything to help their customers or their properties' neighbors.



Very good location. Good commutation throughout, clean and as described. Thank you very much



Beautiful house. Great for 12 ladies<br/>Two of the showers didn’t have hot water<br/>The key to open the Annexe to put the rubbish in didn’t work.



Beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful location. Ideal for a family of 11 due to all the space. The games room is a good addition to the property. It was very clean and tidy inside. <br/>We would definitely recommend to friends and would stay again.



Not applicable<br/>No opening windows in 5 of the bedrooms. Very uncomfortable during the night.<br/>Patio furniture and outdoor space needs some attention, including windows . All were very dirty.<br/>Kitchen utensils particularly serving dishes required for 12.

We went with family, there were 8 adults 2 children & a baby.<br/>The house was like a tardis, the layout took a bit of getting used to. The bedrooms were very comfortable & clean & the large dining table was the main gathering space as the living rooms were too small for us all to fit in together. We did have some fun around the table with card games etc & was great for meals together. The walk into the centre was a very steep one & not ideal for our elderly parents so had to get them a taxi each time but for the younger members was manageable. All in all we had a lovely 4 night stay & would book again. Thank you



The house was great for our group (10 people + dog)! We loved sitting around the large dining table together as a family and all of our rooms were extremely comfortable, other than the issues already mentioned by others with the showers being hit and miss. Some days you'd have a hot shower, the others lukewarm. The living spaces are great for the group, especially with the addition of a games room. The location of the guesthouse is great with access to the market place and many walks around, word of warning that you have some fair size hills to walk up to reach the market place. <br/><br/>All in all, a lovely family stay.



We booked this Airbnb for a family get-together for a birthday, and it was an absolutely beautiful place in a gorgeous location. The Old Brewery is modern, beautifully decorated, and has plenty of space for 9 adults. We really appreciated the two lounge areas so we could do different things or come together as a group. The games room was a real hit. The table was a beautiful addition for us all together for a feast.<br/><br/>The biggest downside is the showers, the baths, and hot taps heated up really fast. However, the showers were never more than lukewarm. We contacted hosts through the app multiple times, and although they responded quickly at a later hour, we did as they advised but no improvement. <br/><br/>They did offer to send maintenance round to look into the issue, but later, they just advised again to run the shower longer, and no one was sent round.<br/><br/>Overall, we did really enjoy the stay, and Richmond is beautiful, shame about the showers.



Ok there is some good here & some opportunity for improvements. First off the house is great for large groups. Lots of bedrooms. Great dining table for 12. Perfect for our family get together. Location fantastic. Opportunities for improvement. Bed broken in bedroom. Housekeeping were aware but being aware & fixing are two different things. Sheets had blood stains. They changed them quickly but obviously not nice. The house was listed with washing machine which won’t matter for many but did for us as we were arriving with no clean clothes after 10 days on the road. Anyway. It doesn’t have a washing machine for guest & the operators seemed confused on this. Washed everything in the sink by hand. Now the showers. Prior reviews note that there is no hot water in showers. Running a nearby tap on cold helps as it drops the cold water pressure letting it run warm. Lots of pots & pans but nothing non stick. Ungenerous check in 10am & out @ 4pm. Surprise £25 charge breakage?



Nice house and good location for walking into the local town area. Also some nice walks near the house.



nice stay. Enjoyed house



Fantastic home for larger groups, we stayed as a family over Christmas. Beautifully decorated in a peaceful area of Richmond. <br/><br/>Had issues with the showers and the hot water as alluded to in another review so hopefully this can be rectified. Apart from that, cannot fault.



Beautiful house, lovely location with lots of walks and nice pubs and restaurants within walking distance. We had plenty of space for a big party - all the bedrooms are a great size with comfy beds and most had en suites. Feels homely with amenities you could need.



The house and location were lovely! We loved going walks into the town and seeing the waterfalls and castle. All communal areas were modern, although for a group of 11 the living rooms were on the small side. The dining room and kitchen however were a great size, and we had lots of fun in the games room! The bedrooms were well-presented and really spacious. <br/><br/>The only downside were the showers which, although very modern and set within lovely and spacious bathrooms, were really temperamental. At times some worked fine but most of the time the water was really cold in all of them, even after running the water for a long while as advised. I think if this wasn’t an issue it would’ve really improved our stay. <br/><br/>However, apart from the showers, I would recommend this property as it was a great space to catch up with friends and provided a great base to explore the local town which has lots of local cafes, shops and pubs :)<br/><br/>*one final thing to note is that the company require additional forms and info to be filled out in order to buy damage cover (which I’ve never seen before on Airbnb). This was £25 to purchase £500 worth of damage cover and was compulsory.



A fantastic place to stay for 3 families meeting up. Clean, modern and great location.



A perfect find for the family to get together for my son’s Pass Out Parade. Decorated to the finest standard, everything you need and more to make the weekend a memorable one.



Lovely new and well presented property. Really enjoyed our family weekend.

Home Truths

As the property is located in the heart of Richmond, parking is limited. There is free on-street parking outside the property but this is on a first come, first served basis. Alternatively a pay and display car park is also located nearby.

The Old Brewery has an abundance of spaces to enjoy with all the family, however the living room(s) don't seat all guests at one time.
