Old Mill Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated on the end of the original farmhouse and boasting lovely views across the surrounding gardens and open countryside, this delightful cottage is a wonderful stone built barn conversion. Sympathetically converted from lovely old stone barns and buildings, this is one of a group of magnificent properties which have been lovingly renovated around an idyllic courtyard just five minutes walk from the delightful village of Gilling West. The cottage features an open-plan living area with exposed beams, French doors leading to an enclosed garden and picture windows.

The peaceful Dales village of Gilling West is a lovely, attractive little town and was winner of the 'Yorkshire in Bloom' award. Set in lovely rolling countryside just a few miles to the north of the popular market town of Richmond, Gilling West is well supplied by local amenities and offers not only a lovely old church, but also two pubs, both of which serve food, as well as a post office. Richmond itself contains a magnificent Georgian Theatre and an imposing, ruined medieval castle that overlooks the River Swale. The area is full of footpaths and bridleways, criss-crossing the picturesque landscape in every direction and excellent fishing facilities are available nearby. This wonderful town makes an idea base for exploring all of Swaledale and Teesdale, regardless of the time of year.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

We had stayed before so knew that the situation would be ideal for a break with my Mother who is 94 years old. The cottage is light and only one step into the property. The views are lovely as are the grounds. The private patio was also good as we only ventured out for half days so used it a lot. The super weather made it a very relaxing holiday.
