Good Hotel Guide Review

It’s hard to pinpoint what Guide readers like best at Tim Culkin and Austin Lynch’s ‘lovely’, characterful B&B, for we hear praise of the ‘warm welcome’; the ‘stylish, comfortable’ rooms; the ‘outstanding’ breakfasts; the ‘beautiful’, award-winning garden. ‘The hosts have a passion for Georgian interiors’, and it shows: just off the cobbled square, their ‘nicely designed’ town house is filled with ‘gorgeous’ antique furniture, silver, paintings and objets d’art – ‘such a collection!’ From curios to prints and pictures, there’s plenty to admire in the handsome bedrooms, where even the bathrooms have flair: in one, huge candles flank a Botticelli-like shell; in another, a Turkish rug lies between an Edwardian bath and a cast iron fireplace. The garden, tumbling towards the River Swale, is ‘inspiring’, with fine masses of snowdrops, ferns, hostas and old roses. In the morning, ‘the best breakfast’ includes an ‘outstanding array’ of local produce, fresh fruit, ‘a wide range of interesting cereals’; coffee is taken seriously. ‘A good base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales’; Easby Abbey is a ten-minute drive away.

Guest comments

'This was our second visit to Millgate House. It's a lovely place - run by a slightly eccentric (generally in very good ways) couple who have a passion for Georgian interiors. It's nicely designed, roomy, and very welcoming. The breakfast spread is outstanding (time for GHG to have an award for this category perhaps?) with local produce, fresh mango, a wide range of interesting cereals etc. Richmond is a peaceful place to stay and a good base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. ' - Stephen Page - December, 2015
'What a gem of a place to stay. A warm welcome, gorgeous antique furniture. Stylish rooms in a comfortable way. Breakfast was outstanding with a superb array of fresh fruits and one of the best breakfasts we have enjoyed anywhere. Even on a drab October day the garden looked beautiful. Tim and Austin are wonderful hosts. ' - Lynn and Rodger Middleton - October, 2015
