  • Precipitous terrain and less than friendly welcome at this hidden garden. Garden itself looked good but you need to be fit to access it....it's very steep with no handrails. Sorry to report that it wa...  more »

  • Wonderful interior, staggering views, fantastic breakfast and very welcoming hosts. The quality of the furnishings was incredible. Would highly recommend for antique and garden lovers.
  • My friends and I stayed here during our Coast to Coast Walk in 2014. We specifically upgraded as we had heard such good reports. One pair had a gorgeous room on middle level whereas mine (single) was at top of house. Shower was virtually a small cupboard, toilet (supposedly ensuite) was one floor down, basin in room was cracked, small ante room was filled with owners clothes.On second day, sheets were hung over Bannister's to dry. Another pair of friends were in basement rooms accessed down dingy hall. The saving grace was a delicious breakfast but not enough to entice me back or recommend to friends. Ann Cook
  • A very special magical place.
  • It is possible to visit this walled garden without staying at Millgate House. There is a little door next to the main entrance that leads round the side of the house to the garden at the back, and an honest box for donations. I am not a gardener at all, but recognise the imagination and sheer hard work which has gone into creating this award-winning horticultural haven. Plants and flowers to delight (even out of the summer months) and splendid views back to the house.
  • Although we stayed just the one night at Millgate House it was truly memorable and we most certainly will be back. From all the good reviews our expectations were high and from the outset they were exceeded in every respect. The house itself is a lovely building, ideally situated off the town square with a garden at the rear which must be fabulous in the summer months. The whole house is exquisitely furnished to reflect the owners' taste in antiques and fine art of character. Our room which overlooked the garden and beyond the river and rolling Yorkshire countryside was spacious and comfortable and we were provided with everything to ensure an enjoyable and relaxed stay. First impressions are always important and Austin and Tim are very warm and welcoming hosts. They go the extra mile to please guests and make the time spent with them an individual experience with little touches such as a complimentary drink on arrival, a taster of fine whisky for the evening and fresh milk from the kitchen fridge for guests to use for their coffee and tea in their rooms. Private safe parking is also provided. The breakfast was excellent, a feast for the eyes and taste buds and flawlessly presented. Austin and Tim are perfect hosts, warm and friendly yet thoroughly professional at all times as are their young and competent staff. In sum we had a wonderful time at Millgate House. The location ambiance and service can not be faulted and we look forward to a return visit.
