Get away from the stresses of a busy daily life and retreat to this beautifully presented detached holiday property, in a rural location, offering you a haven of peace and tranquillity. Overlooking the River Aire and with walks from the doorstep, The Mill Lodge, set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is every walkers dream.
After a busy day exploring the area, take off your boots and relax in the light and airy living room, with a feature stone fire place and wood-burning stove to keep you warm. If you wish to admire the fantastic location, head outside and enjoy a large glass of wine in the enclosed garden, whilst watching the sun set after a magnificent day.

Comprising of five lovingly-presented bedrooms, some with en-suite facilities, The Mill Lodge makes perfect accommodation for a gathering with family you’ve not seen in a while, or a group of friends looking to explore the area.

    Brilliant, spacious - perfect for larger families and groups. Skipton and Gargrave within minutes for all you need. We had an excellent family time.

    Mill Lodge has been refurbished to a good standard, doesn't have drafty windows/doors so is easy to keep warm. The open plan layout downstairs works well. The spacious kitchen area is hard flooring which is practical while the living room/dining area is carpeted which keeps it cosy. The bedroom mix of ensuites/ doubles, a twin and a twin/double option is good too. I'd stay there again.

    We’ve just got back from a lovely weekend at mill lodge. There were 7 adults, 2 kids and a baby and we had more than enough room. The house is gorgeous and felt very luxurious! All communication with the owner has been really easy and she even called by to check everything was ok! Great weekend had by all!

    Suitable accommodation for adults and children alike, a great family friendly house. The music quiz was a great find; everyone enjoyed it. We had a good meal in the painted grey pub in Gargrave and the house was very near to a good range of attractions. We visited Skipton Castle, Bolton Abbey and Malham Cove and Tarn. In the house, one of the double beds was a bit hard, but the others were very comfortable. Lovely showers and plenty of hot water. Thanks for a great holiday!
