The Old Vicarage enjoys one of the best locations in the Yorkshire Dales and quite possibly the whole of England!
It is at the centre of picturesque Swaledale – one of the most northerly dales of the National Park – and only a short drive from the historic market town of Richmond with its famous Norman castle.
The house itself is set on its own and enjoys perfect peace and tranquility. Nature surrounds you and the only sounds are the calls of the wild birds, the nearby river and occasional conversation of grazing farm animals. It is quite simply the perfect rural retreat.
