Good Hotel Guide Review

Expect ‘a warm welcome’ at this ‘lovely’, characterful B&B in a ‘peaceful’ market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. ‘Slightly eccentric (in a good way!)’, Austin Lynch and Tim Culkin are ‘wonderful’ hosts ‘with a passion for Georgian interiors’. The ‘beautiful’ Georgian town house is filled with ‘gorgeous’ antique furniture, paintings, ornaments and objets d’art, from the ‘elegant’ drawing room to the ‘stylish, comfortable’, book-filled bedrooms. Much has been preserved – look out for the period fireplace and wig room in the King bedroom dating back to 1720. Outside is as inviting as in: leading down to the River Swale, the award-winning terraced garden – ‘full of interest’ – is ideal for quiet contemplation. ‘Even on a drab autumn day, the garden was inspiring.’ Breakfast is ‘superb’ – ‘the best I’ve eaten, anywhere’. In the light-filled dining room (oriental carpets, mahogany tables, pristine china), help yourself to an ‘outstanding array’ of local produce, fresh fruit, ‘a wide range of interesting cereals’; the cooked dishes receive much praise. (Lynn and Rodger Middleton, and others)

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.

'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
