Corona Virus Outbreak

The Government has allowed holiday cottages to reopen from July 4th. We will now be taking bookings from 11 July, but initially at least we will be booking alternate weeks to allow time for the house to be cleaned thoroughly between visits.

Millbeck is a converted barn on the edge of a small village, opposite the village green, with views over beautiful Wensleydale in the centre of the National Park. There are a number of established walking routes from the cottage and the village, and is ideal for touring the National Park. Local attractions include the Wensleydale Railway, the Wensleydale Creamery and Dales museum in Hawes. There is even a ropemakers and the famous Aysgarth Falls! There is a wide choice of pubs, restaurants and tea shops, as well as takeaways, in the area.

Thornton Rust is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, and Mill Beck provides secure storage for cycles in the attached garage. The area has always been popular with cyclists, even more so after the Tour.

Rather surprisingly for a small village we now have cable internet at the cottage which is available to guests.

Mill Beck is an old building, but has all the benefits of a modern house, with double glazing, central heating and proper insulation which was installed as part of the conversion which had to meet modern building regulations.

A very comfortable, well equipped cottage in a peaceful hamlet in glorious Wensleydale. We lacked for nothing in the wetter as well as the warmer, sunnier days. Thank you Sue and Steve for the use of your lovely cottage - and for the welcome wine and greetings on arrival.

A relaxing and comfortable stay in the Dales

By Lisa G. on 03-Jun-2019

We are a family of six and we enjoyed a weeks holiday in Thornton Rust. We found the house to be comfortable, very well equipped and a real home-from-home. The owner had left us a bottle of wine and a card upon arrival which was lovely after such a long drive. We found there was really everything we needed; from tin foil and soap to plasters. This for us really made the difference! The accommodation was spacious, bigger than I had expected with a fab shower, WiFi and comfy beds. The patio and utilities in the garage are an added bonus. Unfortunately the weather was not our friend but we still got out and about. This is a great location for visiting nearby waterfalls and exploring the dales. We took some walks around the village and the owner of the cottage was very helpful with telling us ideas for routes. We absolutely loved our holiday and would recommend staying here.

An excellent Warm, Clean, Spacious Cottage in the Heart of the Yorkshire Dales :-)

By Sandi B. on 05-Jun-2018

Wow - the Berry family have just come home after a lovely week in the Yorkshire Dales. Mill Beck is an EXCELLENT spacious 3 Bedroom cottage in the lovely quite village of Thornton Rust. It has a lovely feel to it which can only promote relaxation!!! All the facilities are perfect - All mod cons are present including WiFi which I must admit my 2 teenage sons can’t seem to live without :-) Rooms are bright, clean and spacious. Everything you need is present! We made Roast Dinners to BBq’s with no problems at all. Outside is a lovely private patio area which catches the sun throughout the day! We are a family that brings frozen food with us and the large fridge freezer in the garage is excellent for this! The cottage is lovely and warm as it has the added benefit of Central Heating, double glazing and a fantastic large open fire with logs firelights etc.. all provided. Parking outside was never a problem. The walks around the village are great. We walked to Askrigg made famous by the TV show All Creatures Great and Small with ease (4 miles round trip) - recommended as the lovely Humble Pie Cafe does superior homemade cake and tea :-)). We also walked to Aysgarth Falls through lovely countryside from the cottage. We noticed there are plenty of walks behind the cottage as well onto Thornton Rust Moor. Our evening walks were taken this way!!! We are from Devon and although a good 6 hour drive to get to I can not recommend this cottage Highly Enough! Sue and Steve make sure you have all the information needed for a perfect stay. THANK YOU for letting us use your cottage which I have no hesitation in stating - it is the BEST we have stayed in. If you are looking for a relaxing week away enjoying what nature has to offer with the comfort of home mod cons then this is the place for you. You will enjoy your stay :-)

Idyllic Peaceful Retreat with all mod-cons

By Mike Franks on 10-Jul-2017

We enjoyed a lovely restful week away from it all in this lovely character cottage. So quiet and peaceful yet with all mod-cons and ideally located for exploring the surrounding Wensleydale being midway between Leyburn & Hawes. We found everything we needed in the cottage and made use of the barbecue on the sunnier days. For anyone seeking some peace and quiet they would be hard pressed to find a better location.
