The Guardian has teased that The Fleece Hotel in Richmond will reopen "with a bold new look" in May. This red-brick property has been transformed into a boutique hotel and Travelzoo is the hotel's exclusive launch partner.

Lonely Planet describes Richmond in North Yorkshire as a "handsome market town" and one of "England's best-kept secrets". You'll find a maze of cobbled streets lined with impressive Georgian buildings and stone cottages here. The town also overlooks the River Swale and is home to Richmond Castle, which was built in 1071 following the Norman Conquest of England. You'll find a maze of cobbled streets here, which are lined with impressive Georgian buildings and stone cottages. You'll also be able to spot the hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park from the town -- the castle's keep is a great lookout point.

The 1.5-mile Richmond Town Trail goes past many of the town's most popular attractions, including the castle, the Georgian Theatre Royal and the Richmond Museum. If you're feeling more adventurous, you could also complete a section of Alfred Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk, which stretches from St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay -- passing through Richmond. 

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a 5-minute drive away and Durham and Middlesbrough can both be reached within 50 minutes.

The Grade II-listed hotel dates back to 1897 and has had an extensive renovation, which has taken three years to complete. The hotel has 10 bedrooms, a restaurant and a café-bar.
