Darcy Mews offers an impressive collection of five stylish self-catering apartments providing luxury retreats in the historic Yorkshire market town of Richmond. Perfect for a romantic break or a holiday with friends and family, two apartments sleep four, two have three bedrooms accommodating six, and the other is a penthouse exuding luxury just for two.
Each apartment is unique and presented to the highest of standards with a lovely blend of original character and modern conveniences. The location is every bit as impressive with the property sitting on Riverside Road, and affording fabulous views along the river and over Richmond Falls - an beautiful network of waterfalls.
Formerly the site of the old gasworks, Darcy Mews sits beneath the walls of Richmond's magnificent castle - a popular attraction and one of the country's finest remaining Norman castles. The ancient market place at the heart of the town still holds a weekly market each Saturday, and its tiny cobbled streets are lined with fantastic restaurants and shops.
There are lots of lovely walks straight from the front door. Stroll along the River Swale or take the Castle Walk to see the sights of the town. The surrounding Yorkshire Dales also offer superb opportunities for those with a passion for walking and cycling, as well as an abundance of attractions.
For those happy to travel further afield, the City or York, North York Moors and the North Pennines are all within easy reach.
