Mill Farm House

Mill Farm House is a lovely Grade II listed farm house on the edge of the pretty village of Ravensworth, North Yorkshire with its wide green and ruined castle. The comfortable and spacious house with its attached barn conversion sleeps 16 people in eight bedrooms, with five bath and shower rooms. Entering the house from the courtyard, there is a small stone flagged hall, with space for coats and boots, leading to the spacious farmhouse kitchen, the heart of the house. With an oil-fired ESSE range and induction hob, it is a lovely space to cook, gather, eat and relax. The oak table seats twelve easily and there is a smaller breakfast table that can be added to seat sixteen. There is a woodburner and French windows leading to the walled front garden, with terrace. The ground floor has two sitting rooms, one with a woodburner, a piano and a wide selection of board games. The second sitting room has a smart TV and original working shutters. There are five comfortable double bedrooms in the main farmhouse (one on the ground floor), with views of the garden and the landscape beyond, and two en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. There are a further three double bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room in the attached converted barn. The barn has a fantastic first floor open-plan living and dining space, with original wooden beams and a woodburner, ideal for a celebration get-together. Outside the kitchen French windows, the walled front garden has a terrace, lawn, borders and a further seating area surrounded by flowers. There is a pretty sloping garden to the side of the house, with access to a shallow stream, perfect for paddling. In front of the house is the paddock, with lawns, asparagus and raspberry beds and a small orchard with a swing and a treehouse. Ravensworth has a lovely wide village green with views of the castle and Holmedale. The village has a pub at the side of the green, a small farm shop and the Ravensworth Nurseries, selling super summer plants. A mile across the fields takes you to Mainsgill Farm Shop with its fantastic food hall and play areas. The house is ten minutes’ drive from the Georgian market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle and a perfect base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are many good pubs and restaurants in the area and a cinema and Georgian theatre in nearby historic Richmond.
