Castle Mill description

Holiday home
Castle Mill is a luxurious holiday home in lovely countryside on the outskirts of Ravensworth village. The cottage has six bedrooms spread over three floors, including one with en-suite and one with access to the rear deck, with a variety of double and twin rooms. There is a bathroom with an extra shower room on the second floor and a cloakroom downstairs. The kitchen is very well equipped, with a breakfast bar and dining area, while there are two sitting rooms, one with a woodburner and one with a multi-fuel stove. Outside is ample off road parking, and a terraced lawned garden with deck, patio and furniture. Castle Mill is a wonderful luxury base for friends or family to get together and enjoy this beautiful part of the Dales, with market towns, pretty villages and stunning scenery at every turn.

The pretty little village of Ravensworth lies just to the north of Richmond in a minor tributary of the River Swale. Made up of weathered sandstone cottages with their unusual 'Yorkshire' roofs - a mix of soft red pantiles and slate - the village is centred around a wide, picturesque village green. At one end of the green the popular Bay Horse Inn serves good food and drink. Pretty footpaths run from Ravensworth through the surrounding villages allowing visitors to enjoy many circular walks. Close by are the popular Swaledale market town of Richmond and the Teesdale market town of Barnard Castle both of which offer a wide range of amenities and shops.

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?

Castle Mill is a lovely spacious, luxurious house, fantastic decor. Nice views across the countryside. The house was very clean and well maintained mixing modern and traditional features well. Had a relaxing but fun birthday weekend.

Castle Mill was the perfect cottage booked as a surprise 60th birthday break for my husband. The cottage was very clean and spacious. The large kitchen was amazing, we loved the island breakfast bar. Superb bedrooms, lovely bed linen plenty of towels. The downstairs underfloor heating was great as the weather was very cold outside. We would definitely recommend this cottage to our family and friends.

A beautiful cottage with lots of space, a lovely warm environment on a cold wet weekend. It was well equipped and close to the village. The cottage was immaculate spotless. Amazing facilities.

We stayed here as a group of a dozen 35-40 year olds with some young children and it couldn't have been better. The location is quiet and peaceful and the actual building and amenities are first class. The instructions on how to find it were very good from the owners and on request they were very helpful on the phone. The interior itself lacked very little, the place has wifi and multiple TVs in various rooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and crockery etc and was amplely stocked with a toaster, cooker, dishwasher, huge oven, microwave etc. There's two big family rooms with wood burners in which are easy to use and the chairs are comfy. The bedrooms and bathrooms set on three different floors are all very well equipped with comfy beds and lots of storage. Overall the place has been decorated and modernised to a very HIGH standard which is a credit to the owners. There's a pub at the end of the road (Bay Horse) which is a five minute walk but it only opens certain times so we didn't use it. Richmond is only a fifteen minute drive away for milk and papers etc. I can't emphasise how good this place is and would highly recommend it, if you think the pictures are good they don't come near to showing good it really is....

We stayed at this beautiful property in October for a long weekend as a group of 5 couples. The house is lovely, every room is beautiful. It was spotlessly clean. Would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a getaway. Richmond was only 10 minutes away in a taxi. My only advice would be to take some earplugs as the cockerels started to crow anytime from 2 in the morning, it's a farm so nothing anyone can do and it doesn't take anything away from the beauty of the surroundings.
