What a great choice The Old Mill proved to be! From start to finish it was just fantastic. A lovely housekeeper met us and showed us round. Huge living room - enough for all 17 of us with a wood burning stove. Big dining room table and really well equipped kitchen. Enough bedrooms to house 5 families in comfort. We went for the linen hire option and it was great - really good quality. We hired the studio as well so the children rehearsed and performed their show on a real stage, played ping pong when it rained and generally did all their shrieking and letting off steam over there while the grown-ups relaxed. Five minutes drive into Richmond with loads of room for football etc in the garden.

“An awesome place for family and group gathering”

Thank you SO MUCH for the immense blessing that our time at the Old Mill has been to us as a family of four and to our wider families too. We are a missionary family on home assignment in the UK and want you to know just how much this holiday has been a highlight of our UK time.

We were able to have our entire extended family with us, in a beautiful location in Yorkshire. I think we had a max of 11 people (plus well behaved pets) staying at any one time, but it didn't feel at all crowded.
We did say that with each of our families we have never all sat down at one table together without being slightly squashed or some of us having to be at a different table because there just isn´t normally room to get everyone together..... yet we have enjoyed the benefit of your enormous and spacious table and have just thrived in everyone eating together.

The whole place is just stunning...... I could go on and on..... in fact I´ve recomended it to one of our closest friends for her 40th gathering, and one of my sister in laws was so taken by the place that she is already thinking of having a gathering of their friends, which is normally in Scotland but now she is smitten with your place.

We had friends round and two of their friends had already been and raved about it. It would be excellent for church groups or team away days, or families wanting to gather, as we did.. The studio behind the main house would be great for small conferences.

Such a beautiful and large house was out of this world. We saw rabbits daily and also pheasants, just idylic. And so much to do in the area, you have found a real treasure of a spot to be in. Easy access from Scotch corner and just a few miniutes drive to Richmond town.

Many thanks once again for this wonderful place!

Liked best: Large and spacious gathering place for the extended family
Liked least: If I had to say something, it would be that WIFI strength varied in different parts of the main house and could do with a boaster

“Ideal Location, Ideal House & Ideal Break Away”

As a large group, with mixture of all ages Adults and Children. The location was great as not too far off the A1, but still felt as if in the middle of nowhere. Ideal grounds for the children to run around outside safely, the bedrooms are more than enough in size and all the children thought it great to all be able to be in 1 room together. We also hired the studio, which was great fun for the children to play safely they enjoyed table tennis, and choreograph there own stage show. They didn't pick up an electronic gadget all weekend !. ..result !

Plenty of space around dinner table, all the equipment you could need was in the kitchen to make large dinners easily, and thankfully a dishwasher as no one wants to wash up on a holiday ! Great location to go off and explore and homely feel to come back too. We will be back !.

We had a lovely time at the Old Mill a couple of weekends ago - 14 grown ups, and 6 children. The facilities were perfect - we managed all adults around the dining room table for meals, with children just next to us at the kitchen table. The lounge was an added bonus - much bigger than it looks from the photos - and we gathered in there for family entertainment in the evenings. The studio provided a bigger space for table tennis and ceremonial birthday cake giving. Plenty of comfortable places to sleep too. Would definitely recommend to any similar sized groups as a lovely place to stay.

‘I would like to say thank you for the hospitality we received during our weekend stay at Old Mill.
There was an unusual peace in the environment that surpasses human understanding. It was a perfect venue!’

I went with a group of 20 - 14 women and mix of babies/children. We had a fantastic time!

I would definitely recommend the centre to friends, associates, corporate organisation and church groups.
