About Miller’s Croft

Miller's Croft is a charming one-bedroom stone cottage set in an idyllic riverside location in Wensleydale. Nestling within a pretty village complete with a village green and pub, it's the perfect escape for couples looking for a peaceful country retreat.

Immaculately presented, the accommodation in this romantic Yorkshire cottage is all on one level. The open plan living area is home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area, and features French doors leading out to a quiet and sheltered stone patio. The lounge has a comfy sofa to cosy up on and a living-flame stove to warm your toes by. Curl up here after a day's sightseeing and enjoy a movie with your loved one, or pull up a chair by the fire and start that book you've been looking forward to for ages. There's an LCD TV with Freeview, a DVD Player and Wi-Fi is provided too.

The kitchen has cream shaker-style units giving this area a bright and warm appeal. Adding to the warm and welcoming vibe of this cottage, expect to find some delicious home-baked goodies on your arrival. The kitchen comes equipped with all mod-cons including a dishwasher, and the cupboards are well stocked with utensils needed to rustle up a romantic dinner for two. The dining area sits next to the kitchen and is a cosy spot to settle down and eat, whatever the time of day. Guests also have access to a larger freezer, washing machine & dryer if needed.

The bedroom in Miller's Croft comes complete with a cream cast iron king-size bed and chunky solid oak furniture. Two windows let in streams of light and the crisp white cotton bedding is a joy to wake up in each morning. The bathroom sits right next door and houses a walk-in shower. It's also got underfloor heating and a heated towel rail, always welcome additions.

Outside Miller's Croft there's a lovely private patio just outside the lounge French doors. With a charming bistro table and chairs provided and the use of a BBQ, it's a heavenly spot for lunch or dinner al fresco in the warmer months. There's also a well maintained lawn which is the perfect sun trap in the warmer months. And just down the lane within the grounds there are plenty of places to throw down a rug by the river and enjoy a picnic with a bottle of bubbly or two...

Miller's Croft can also be booked along with Miller's Retreat to accommodate larger groups of up to 8 people.

Local Area

Miller's Croft is located in Little Crakehall just outside the market town of Bedale.  The cottage is set in a unique heritage site with an historic working watermill featured in various TV and film, including the BBC's Countryfile series. The village itself is very pretty, a large village green is overlooked by the manor house and the village pub, the local cricket ground is right in the middle of the village as is a lovely children's park.  The walk to the village green from the cottage is a pleasant five minute stroll across the river.  

Beyond the village the handsome town of Bedale is worth a visit.  Stop for a coffee before making your way around the town's antique shops.  In the opposite direction you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn.  Leyburn is an archetypical slice of Dales market town life.  You'll find lovely traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday.  Leyburn is also home to the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain.  The nearby town of Richmond is similar in many ways, and has a lovely setting along the River Swale. 

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of Miller's Croft.  Asygarth Falls and Bolton Castle are just a few miles away and the gorgeous villages of West Burton and Askrigg are within easy driving distance, so lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about.  If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise.  Our concierge will be more than happy to recommend some walks for you if required. 

And when you need to refuel stop at one of the areas many excellent gastro pubs.  Our favourites include the Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton, the Blue Lion at East Witton and the Wyvill Arms Arms in Constable Burton.

Such a quiet peaceful place - ideal for a relaxing holiday. A real home from home and the owners Alison and Lionel were so very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We shall certainly be back next year with more of the family!
