Another perfect stay at Millgate House made my 50th birthday extra special. We stayed in the Garden Room again which opens out onto the gardens which are just stunningly beautiful. It is so quiet you can completely forget that you are right in the middle of a busy market town. Tim and Oz are lovely hosts who work so hard... More

We stayed here for one night almost by chance, to break a long journey, and must go back - one night is not enough! The glorious garden, comfortable room, delicious breakfast, not to mention the warmth and courtesy of our hosts, made us feel very happy. With just a few rooms the atmosphere is more like a house party than... More

A delightful very individual "retreat" just off the busy marketplace in attractive Richmond. Owners Austin and Tim have covered every possible detail and our room was probably the best we have ever stayed in! We went out for dinner (Rustique, also recommended), but the breakfast was splendid, including the greatest selection of fresh fruit that we have had in this... More

Wonderful house, bedrooms, hosts and breakfast (actually a better breakfast than you will get in most 5* hotels). But the highlight is the garden which is inspirational, exuberant, confident and brilliantly maintained (this is a very high maintenance garden designed to look relaxed and informal). A profusion of plants, rare and less rare, artfully arranged in great combinations of form,... More

What a wonderful review! Crisp, to the point, glowing, succinct and hugely appreciative...especially of the garden. It means a lot coming from such a distinguished and knowledgeable gardener to get such comments. All our recent reviews are much appreciated... it continues to mean a lot to us that people are moved to give such encouraging feed back from the heart.... More

We have just enjoyed three relaxing three night stay in the elegant surroundings of Millgate House. A real delight made all the more enjoyable by our very welcoming hosts Austin & Tim. The garden is real delight with lots of hidden areas. Our very knowledgable hosts were very happy to answer any questions on their plants. My husband was delighted... More

We spent two nights with Tim and Austin in their charming Georgian home after seeing the stunning garden on tv. We arrived to a homely welcome and then shown our room. We were in room 2 and loved it. Fantastic view over the gardens where I spent many quiet moments.The breakfast, with many choices, was in the dining room with... More

This is an amazing place to stay and the previous reviews say it all. More like a home from home than a traditional B&B but it is the garden that is really the star of the show. The house is also a fantastic if rather quirky building with bags of history and more grandfather clocks than I could count! Very... More

We had booked elsewhere in Richmond which was unsuitable. I was desperate to move us to somewhere better. The Millhouse came up on a search; what unbelievable luck. The wonderful proprietors realised my distress and bent over backwards to accommodate us at short notice, a family of four, and what wonderful accommodation. We were in the garden appartment, it was... More

Our stay at Millgate was everything I had heard it would be. The garden was the reason we booked a three night stay after seeing it featured in articles and on TV. It was gloriously voluptuous - a delight in every corner. What Tim and Austin have created in the garden is utterly beautiful. The Georgian house itself is cushioningly... More

My friend and I were on a garden tour and could not have found a better base! The house was posh/ homely and our stay was excellent. The house was only surpassed by the garden which was stunning. Tim and Austen were such good hosts and so anxious that our stay would be special. Our room was very comfortable and... More
