The Fleece is a very well appointed and fully refurbished town centre hotel with an outstanding trading position in a thriving tourist town. The town is alive with locals and visitors alike and the Fleece is beautifully situated to take advantage, overlooking the lovely Friary gardens just off the town centre.

Ideal for either an owner operator or part of a small group, the hotel has been at the centre of the town for over 135 years and has recently undergone a transformation to bring the hotel back to its former glory.

The town of Richmond is a beautiful and popular town set in between two popular National Parks being on the Eastern border of the Yorkshire Dales, and close to the western border of the North York Moors. The attractive town is filled with amenities and makes it one of the top choices of those visiting the area and benefits from its own attractions including Richmond Castle and the lovely Richmond Falls on the River Swale.

The Fleece Hotel is a striking stone and brick built property with incredibly handsome gothic facade, slate covered roof, three storey accommodation and basement cellar.

The Grade II listed property retains a number of pretty original features including parapet, turrets, round pointed roofs and even arrow slits and has recently benefited from a significant and full refurbishment.

Planning And Development

The hotel benefits from recently obtained planning consent for an additional eight letting bedrooms in Apartment 2 and the Penthouse.

Should all eight additional bedrooms be developed if required by a new owner the hotel would trade with 21 bedrooms, but there are other opportunities including using the Penthouse as owner’s accommodation, a holiday cottage style rental, or indeed a private rental.
