A gorgeous, bijou bolthole, perfect for a romantic retreat set within a large estate with uninterrupted countryside views from your private hot tub.

Make the most of this wonderful estate on the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales from the vantage point of this delightful property that sleeps two in comfort. Studded on the outer fringes of Gilling West, you’ll be within 0.5 miles of the welcoming village pub and a cascade of farm shops selling mouth-watering produce complete with quirky tearooms for cream teas and sandwich platters.

Approach your cosy accommodation to discover a delightful apartment set against a spectacular backdrop of unspoilt countryside. You’ll be faced with a tapestry of fields dotted with trees and sweeping hills in the distance that are ripe for exploring, but your immediate viewpoint is of a tranquil lake bordered by immaculate lawns, shrubs and plenty of inviting spots to throw down a picnic rug. Framed by glass and equipped with a magnificent hot tub and bistro-style furniture, your outside space is the perfect place to unwind at the end of a busy day.

Steps lead up to your charming abode, where you’ll find an open-plan living space that exudes warmth, relaxation and hominess. Prepare locally-sourced ingredients and produce handcrafted by skilled artisans in the kitchen, taking advantage of the simple yet sophisticated workspaces. There is an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave, and the table provides elegant indoor dining space for a romantic meal a deux.

Return from your adventures to evenings snuggled on the corner sofa. Search for an exciting film on the TV, delve into your welcome pack, or grab a blanket to venture out onto the balcony for some stargazing before bedtime.

Your quarters guarantee a peaceful nights sleep in the sumptuous king-size bed with its luxurious headboard and chic furniture. There is a stand-out en-suite shower room with iridescent tiling that shimmers in the light. The shower cubicle and deep basin are perfect places to wash away the day.

Gilling West is tucked in a splendid rural setting just 3.5 miles from Richmond, a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. Richmond boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. Stroll into town for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the many tea rooms there or pop over for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants.

The River Swale runs through the town and just across the river, less than a mile away are the River Swale waterfalls. You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to go anywhere near the car. We also recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station which has lots to entertain young and old including a small cinema, cafe/restaurant, gallery, microbrewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as The Gateway to the Dales so expect stunning Dales scenery within minutes of leaving the town. The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey is just 4.5 miles away. Set on the banks of the River Swale, the Abbey is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months. There are lots of other breathtaking historical sites to explore in the Dales, including the stunning Aysgarth Falls (18.5 miles), which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep or just a short distance away including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by.

Barnard Castle (12.5 miles) is a historic market town recently listed as one of the ‘top 10 rural places to live in the UK’.

Excellent base for touring both Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors. Plenty to do around Richmond if you don't want to go far. Millstones is very comfortable and hot tub and end of day is wonderful.

These cottages are part of a wedding venue advertised separately. Thus giving the wrong impression. Adjoining cottages full of wedding revelers who do not care how they behave. Constant noise untill the early hours. Fireworks set off during the night during a heat wave. Surprised nothing was burt down. Left one day early. Would not return.

Would not recommend to stay here if you wish to have a peaceful holiday. This site is holiday home/event venue. For 5 evenings of our 7 night stay, we were up til early hours due to loud guests around the complex and in other accommodations. Asked owner if they could talk to guests but no avail as it was stated by owner the light evenings cause peoRead moreple to stay up and they are due to check out soon, false! Pretty site but noise was a complete let down, will not be returning. Not worth the money. Hide

Had a fantastic break, loved the outlook from, yet seclusion of the balcony. Plenty to do and see nearby, or just chill on the balcony or in the hot tub, in beautiful surroundings. Would love to come again!
