Millgate House, Yorkshire


Historic Millgate House, dating from the early 18th century, is only a few steps away from the cobbled town square of Richmond in Yorkshire.

Overlooked by an unfinished 11 century castle and enjoying sweeping views across the River Swale and the surrounding Yorkshire Dales, Millgate House is a premium B&B property surrounded by what has long been considered one of England’s finest gardens, since it won the Daily Mail’s National Gardens Competition in 1995.

Millgate House has 2 rooms, one king and one twin, both with views out over the garden. Each has a well-appointed, period-style ensuite bathroom.

Millgate House is also renown for its magnificent breakfasts.

Richmond’s attractions include many historic buildings such as Easby Abbey, a busy marketplace, restaurants, shops, theatre, and pubs.

The surrounding district includes Bolton Castle, Kiplin Hall and several historic abbeys.
