The magnificent 18th-century house at Castle Howard, NT Beningbrough Hall and the World Heritage site of Fountains Abbey provide excellent days out. The World of James Herriot can be found in Thirsk and the theme parks at Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley provide fun for all the family. Visit the quaint market towns of Easingwold and Helmsley; enjoy walking and cycling trails in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and experience generous Yorkshire hospitality in numerous traditional inns, with award-winning real ales, and tea shops. The elegant spa town of Harrogate, 26 miles, with renowned Harlow Carr Gardens and the cathedral city of Ripon, 17 miles, are not be missed, or perhaps spend a day at the races in York, Thirsk or Ripon. Shop 4 miles, pub 2 miles. Shops 4 miles, pubs 2 miles, restaurant 1/4 mile.

    A great place for groups needing space and comfort. Journeys to York, dales, moors and seaside, were enjoyed by all. Many pubs with excellent restaurants were a short drive away. The pool area was perfect for daily exercise and relaxation. We appreciated the polite, prompt and helpful service to solve some minor issues.

    A comfortable, clean and well equipped property, plenty of room for our large party, we had a problem with the heating which was quickly solved after we reported it. The swimming pool was a real bonus especially for the children.

    Had a fantastic time with family and friends. Shame a few got lost, requires some kind of lighting next to the sign at the beginning of the drive.

    Lovely. Wished we had asked to have a preview of the facilities as having seen the quality of the pool and games area we would have encouraged our guests to come prepared to use. Plenty of comfortable space and room for a very active 2 year old to burn off energy. A couple of our guests did comment that their double bed sagged in the middle. On the scale of things minor but if you have difficulty sleeping could affect your view of the weekend. All in all the Mill House was just perfect for our family get together and would highly recommend.

    Great setting and a great size for a big party. Plenty of room in the larger living room and dining room for 15 to sit round and eat a meal. There are lots of things to do nearby and having access to the pool a few hours each day is also great. Would definitely visit again.
