We stayed at the old mill for a weekend, but could happily have stayed longer. 8 of us celebrated a 40th birthday here. we wanted somewhere clean, easy to find, private and comfortable.we weren't disappointed at all. The housekeeper that greeted us was really friendly,and explained everything we needed to know. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. As others have said, I don't think the photos do it justice. It's a beautiful place to stay and well equipped. Looking out into the countryside, it's hard to believe it's so close to scotch corner. From someone with a shocking sense of direction, this was so easy to find!! A definite bonus!! The only negatives I could find probably won't bother most people,and this is just a personal thing, but as an arachnophobic, I really didn't welcome the large houseguests!! Also, at first,we were shocked to find no tv!!!! But,in all honesty, we didn't miss it one bit!! One of the best things for me, was the freestanding bath!! I prefer showers, but this bath was too amazing to ignore!! As I said, 8 of us stayed, and all 8 of us said we would use it again. Friendly communication, welcoming housekeeper,very reasonable prices and lovely accommodation......what's not to love????!!!!

“Beautiful house and surroundings”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We visited The Old Mill for a family get together for my Dad's 70th Birthday.
The location of the house is simply beautiful.
There is ample parking- we parked 5 cars very easily.
Once inside we were truly taken aback- the photo's don't do it justice.
The house is bright, spacious and very clean.
We were a party of 16 and never did it feel anywhere near cramped.
The bedrooms were all lovely and keen, all with nice comfortable beds.
Bathroom facilities are fab, with 2 bathrooms and an extra wc plus an extra shower room in the quiet room (this became the wifi room as it was where the strongest signal was)
The kitchen is fantastically equiped with everything you can possibly need and more.
I would highly recommend The Old Mill- I didn't want to leave!
Genuinley can not think of a negative.
The lovely lady, Barbara, who we booked through is very helpful and efficient and the housekeeper, Christine, was very accomodating as we kept altering our arrival time due to traffic.
We will certainly use The Old Mill again.

“Perfect setting for our weekend retreat”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

This was our second weekend retreat at The Old Mill, and it felt as if we were coming home. The lovely lounge is so welcoming and of a good large size, but feels cosy with the large wood burning stove, needed for chilly June evenings! Lashings of hot water, and a local housekeeper to call on should we need anything put our minds at rest,

The whole house has a lovely atmosphere, is tastefully decorated, comfortable and well equipped, as we were self catering. The grounds provide plenty of space for walking and overlook open countryside, with a small river running on the property's boundary.

This is a beautiful venue, suitable for many types and holidays, retreats, and family reunions, etc. We are booked again!

“Perfect venue for a Golden Wedding Celebration!”

What a great choice The Old Mill proved to be! From start to finish it was just fantastic. A lovely housekeeper met us and showed us round. Huge living room - enough for all 17 of us with a wood burning stove. Big dining room table and really well equipped kitchen. Enough bedrooms to house 5 families in comfort. We went for the linen hire option and it was great - really good quality. We hired the studio as well so the children rehearsed and performed their show on a real stage, played ping pong when it rained and generally did all their shrieking and letting off steam over there while the grown-ups relaxed. Five minutes drive into Richmond with loads of room for football etc in the garden.

“An awesome place for family and group gathering”

Thank you SO MUCH for the immense blessing that our time at the Old Mill has been to us as a family of four and to our wider families too. We are a missionary family on home assignment in the UK and want you to know just how much this holiday has been a highlight of our UK time.

We were able to have our entire extended family with us, in a beautiful location in Yorkshire. I think we had a max of 11 people (plus well behaved pets) staying at any one time, but it didn't feel at all crowded.
We did say that with each of our families we have never all sat down at one table together without being slightly squashed or some of us having to be at a different table because there just isn´t normally room to get everyone together..... yet we have enjoyed the benefit of your enormous and spacious table and have just thrived in everyone eating together.

The whole place is just stunning...... I could go on and on..... in fact I´ve recomended it to one of our closest friends for her 40th gathering, and one of my sister in laws was so taken by the place that she is already thinking of having a gathering of their friends, which is normally in Scotland but now she is smitten with your place.

We had friends round and two of their friends had already been and raved about it. It would be excellent for church groups or team away days, or families wanting to gather, as we did.. The studio behind the main house would be great for small conferences.

Such a beautiful and large house was out of this world. We saw rabbits daily and also pheasants, just idylic. And so much to do in the area, you have found a real treasure of a spot to be in. Easy access from Scotch corner and just a few miniutes drive to Richmond town.

Many thanks once again for this wonderful place!

Liked best: Large and spacious gathering place for the extended family
Liked least: If I had to say something, it would be that WIFI strength varied in different parts of the main house and could do with a boaster
