Low Mill is a traditional stone-built, Grade II listed, late 18th Century corn mill situated in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales village of Bainbridge, close to the ancient market town of Hawes. Bainbridge is in the heart of Wensleydale, so Low Mill makes an ideal base to explore this stunning area and its many attractions. Backing onto the River Bain, England’s shortest river, Low Mill is an amazing place. Most of the original millworks situated throughout the house remain in working order, including the waterwheel. It has undergone a full, sympathetic restoration to become a unique and interesting Guesthouse, providing luxury bed and breakfast accommodation whilst retaining the original character and heritage of this historic Dales mill. We have a lovely riverside garden to relax in and private parking is available. Read more about Low Mill...»»

Discover Dark Skies in Upper Wensleydale...

Come stargazing in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We are now a been designated Dark Sky Reserve by the International Dark Sky Association.
Free from street lighting or road glare and miles away from any industrial light pollution, the skies in Yorkshire Dales National Park are huge, uninterrupted and very, very dark. Most importantly we have plenty of open spaces to view the vast night sky.
The best time to view the stars is from mid August through to early May.
On a clear night in Autumn the Milky Way is easily visible. The stars are best observed if there is no moon so a new moon phase is always the best time to visit however under our massive, unbroken sky the moon itself is a wonderful sight.
To watch the moon rise slowly over the horizon is a special experience.

What some of our guests have said...

"Our stay at Low Mill Guest House was absolutely perfect. The room was incredible, the bed the most comfortable we have ever slept in The food was superb, the cereals, jam, marmalade and bread were all home made, and delicious ..."
Mr and Mrs Hughes

"I very rarely give 5's for these reviews, certainly not across the board, because I always think it has to be somewhere really special to justify that. But Low Mill Guesthouse does. The rooms are as tasteful as they are well-equipped. The breakfasts are locally-sourced, imaginative and delicious. . It's obvious why this place wins prizes..."
Mr and Mrs Presswell

"Fabulous accommodation in a quirky but tastefully converted water mill (the wheel actually works!) Food is excellent, and the whole experience is welcoming and friendly. In a great part of the Dales with lots of walking and some fabulous scenery..."
