Owner description: Behind the unobtrusive facade of Millgate House at the bottom of Richmond's Georgian Market Square lies one of the most suprising gardens in the North of England. The garden won first prize out of 3200 entries in the R H S National Garden Competition and is now a Royal Horticultural Society's "Recommended Garden". It is described in the Good Gardens Guide as "a gem""a delightful garden...skilful underplanting...never feels contrived...just natural and generous...it is a wonderful education in the handling of a small space." The garden has been featured in magazines all over the world.A recent article in the Sunday Times said..."the most densely planted garden I have ever seen." The praise is fulsome...don't miss this garden whilst in Richmond. Many return again and again at different seasons. Open Daily 10 00 am til 5 00pm April til Oct Entrance £2 00

Lush, varied, just the right amount of charming disarray-- so glad to have been able to see it but not have to take care of it!

We were staying at Millgate House for two nights and as we had the garden apartment it became our own personal space for a day. It is cleverly laid out to seem bigger than it is yet with lots of small "rooms" to lose yourself in. Our friends made their wedding vows in the garden and it was the perfect setting; we'll never forget it!

This is a small garden of less than 1/2 an acre just off the main sqaure in Richmond, N Yorks. It is on quite a steep slope but has good paths and steps between the various levels. The planting is very intense with lots of litttle areas full of colour from the roses and other flowers plus lots of greenery from ferns, shrubs , small trees and what must be quite a collection of hostas. And there are lots of seats to sit down and relax in this well kept treasure of a garden. The honesty box by the side entrance means you can enter from the street without having to go through the hotel.

The Millgate is situated right on the main town square in Richmond and entering into the hall and lounges is a visually startling experience with a vast array of antiques, murals and ornaments adorning every available bit of space.
Bedrooms are equally quirky but spotlessly clean and comfortable.
The garden stretching for ever at the back of the house is reported to be one of the finest of it's type for hosting traditional English plants and flowers and it is certainly worth spending some time exploring the many paths that run around the garden.
