A warm welcome


I'm CC the owner and founder of Escape 2 Richmond, a company I started back in 2005!

In 2018 I sold my two bedroomed holiday cottage to focus on creating Orchard House the luxury holiday home it is today. Orchard House is located in the heart of Richmond, Yorkshire. The beautiful market town has regularly appeared in the top ten places in the UK with the best lifestyle. They say your home is your castle - we have one of the best castles in the UK!

Being a market town, Richmond has an abundance of local provenance. As a "Richmond Lass" I love to daily shop at the "butchers, bakers and candlestick makers" among the many quirky independent shops, art galleries and love the Saturday market. I consider myself blessed to have spent the last 15 years doing just that as a mother. If you are looking for a holiday with a slower pace of life then Richmond is for you!

When I moved back to my home town of Richmond, Yorkshire I wanted to bring up my family "the old fashioned way" baking together, eating around the table together, walking together every day, creating new traditions in the wonderful garden here sledging down the hill in the garden in the winter, annual BBQs with water slides in the summer, building dens (or igloos) and creating treehouses. Picking apples straight off the old trees left from the original orchard. Learning to ride bikes on the drive. Orchard house has everything!
