Welcome to The Cornmill at Kirby Mills

Your hosts are Karen and Chris Tinkler and we will be delighted to welcome you to our home. We have been here since 2002 and continue to look for ways to improve your stay with us, as some of you who have been here before will recognise from the pictures!

We offer bed and breakfast and self-catering cottage accommodation on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, half way between Helmsley and Pickering and convenient for Castle Howard, Rievaulx Abbey, York and the North Yorkshire Coast.

There are records in the Domesday book of a watermill in Kirby Mills. The present Cornmill was built around 1750 and was a working watermill until the mid-1950’s. The mill race can still be seen via a glass viewing panel running beneath the dining room. The guest rooms are in the farm house (added around 1850) and the cottages are in what was the old stable block. All three buildings – plus reception - encircle the courtyard, which provides a haven of tranquillity (with seating, so you can relax).

Please feel free to relax in the garden – in which we grow our own vegetables that we use in season – or wander through the paddocks (keeping company with our hens and the stray ducks) or try your luck at fishing on our stretch of the River Dove, which has brown trout, grayling and rainbow trout escapees from the trout farm.

There’s a wealth of birdlife in the paddocks, including wild ducks, moorhens, stray grouse and pheasant, wood pigeons, etc., plus – if you keep your eyes peeled, a kingfisher and an owl.

We offer wireless broadband access for our guests and goose and duck down pillows and duvets are offered as standard, although we can provide non-allergy bedding or blankets if you prefer.

Our local modern music venue - The Band Room at Farndale - has announced the first of its 2015 gigs, being Kate in the Kettle on Friday the 8th of May. In addition US Folk/Blues legend Chris Smither has been pencilled in for the 25th of October. There's a Band Room tradition of including a song by Bob Dylan in the set, so it will be interesting to see what songs the acts take from His Royal Bobnesses back catalogue!

There was a feature article on us in the December 2012 edition of The English home, which was used as the base for another article in the December 2013 edition of Yorkshire Life. Although most of the shots are of our private accommodation, there were some shots of the guest areas as well. Interestingly enough (well, to us anyway.....), we were contacted about two years before and the photoshoot was in December 2011, so that the decor would be festive and photographed (in time) at the appropriate time of the year. It was also nice to see the road between Kirkbymoorside and Castleton featured in the Sunday Times In Gear 7 favourite country drives (15th of July, 2012).

Well, this is "Go Live" with the new website which should eliminate the problems Apple users have had viewing the pictures, etc. There is a slightly different look and feel but we hope you will find this an improvement

We've just finished redecorating Room 4 which includes a total renovation of the bathroom (now a walk in shower with WC, rather than a bath with shower over). The next step is to get a photographer in, which may take a little time

OOPS!!! I've just found out that emails sent to us from the Find Us page aren't getting through (the last one I saw was from the 27th of February). Apologies to anyone who hasn't received a reply. We're trying to fix this now.

Phew! EMail is now working again
