Millgate House Garden

3 Millgate Richmond North Yorkshire DL10 4JN

One of England's hidden gems, the garden at Millgate House is the highly personal project of Austin Lynch and Tim Culkin, owners of Millgate House B&B. They've spent thirty years bringing the walled garden of their Georgian home back to life, and visitors are invited in during spring and summer to see their wonderful array of roses – both historic and contemporary – plus clematis, hostas, ferns and shrubs. It's a delightful place on descending levels, with little arbours and sitting areas, some with views of the river below and of the green hills beyond. You're welcome to sit awhile and soak up the scents, and marvel at the fact that you are just a few steps away from the bustling Market Place – a true town-centre hideway if there ever was one. The entrance is just to the side of the B&B, and there's a guide available to the garden plants and flowers.
