From the moment my husband and I, and our five year old boy, walked through the door, we felt welcome and drawn into this beautiful and majestic house right in the middle of Richmond. The very friendly and knowledgeable owners are passionate about their home and happily share it all with their guests as if they were precious friends. Everyone... More

Its hard to fully describe Millgate House - a stunning place with fabulous hosts and wonderful food, in short an unforgettable experience. The rooms are very special, very comfortable and full of beautiful objects, while the atmosphere is both relaxing and inspiring. The only negative was having to leave.

This is our third stay at Millgate over 10 years and it as suburb as we remembered. The townhouse is magnificent, the furnishings are a marvelous mix of periods, the breakfast is beyond wonderful. There must be 20 fruits to choose from and Austin is a terrific cook. They even have fresh kippers if you like them. Also, they have... More

It's quite hard to sum this place up! Is it the most expensive B&B we've ever stayed in? Yes! Was it worth it? Resoundingly, yes! It's a myriad of little things rather than one big thing. The room was enormous, with the best view I have ever had in this country. There were 101 little details...my wife appreciated the eye... More

We spent 4 nights at the Millgate House and enjoyed every day and evening. It is such a special place and as the owners state - it is their "home" not a "hotel." My husband and i travel a great deal and found Millgate setting a standard all on its own for elegance, friendliness and the best breakfasts of our... More

A wonderful old house in the Yorkshire castle town of Richmond, filled with antiques and the sound of chiming clocks. The view out the windows of my big room was like a sort of Old Masters landscape -- garden, rushing river, grazing sheep and miles and miles of hills and sky. Very comfortable room. Big bathroom, good reading lights, and... More

We stayed here for just one night recently when visiting the Georgian Theatre in Richmond. The room (number 6) was huge with its own separate sitting room & a lovely large bath & shower in the bathroom. An especially lovely aspect of this room is the direct access to the garden, where we were lucky enough with the weather to... More

The title of the review is not as existential as it might first appear, as this jewel in the fine crown of North Yorkshire is surprisingly hard to categorise. Superlatives drip from the pen or keyboard with ease when one recalls a visit to Millgate, relating to Oz and Tim: the most passionate, dedicated and committed hosts one could wish... More

We stay here every time we visit friends in Richmond. The ambience is lovely, Austin and Tim know how to make your stay extra special. The rooms are wonderful, the bed is extremely comfortable with beautiful bed linen and the breakfast is a highlight of the weekend. We cannot recommend this place enough.
