About Steve and Alice Adams
Steve and I grew up in Yorkshire We bought the property in 2000 it was then in a derelict state . We first renovated the Corn Mill (adjacent to Mill race ) and then decided to tackle the barns , which have now become a holiday home we hope for lots to enjoy. Steve has been a builder for almost 30 years now and still loves his work, I trained as a hairdresser which I did for a number of years as our children grew up and later I joined Steve in his business as a labourer ! as I also have a passion for transforming a tired old building into something beautiful. We have 2 grown up children and 3 grandchildren which keep us on our toes !
Steve and Alice Adams purchased this Barn in 2000
Why Steve and Alice Adams chose Hipswell
We bought this property Hipswell Mill and its barn now Mill race because of the history of the Mill and because it needed someone to bring it back to life . It has been an 18 year project which for the most part we have enjoyed doing .

The cottage is absolutely beautiful. So spacious and homely. We were a party of 12 - 8 adults and 4 children and the cottage had everything we could have needed. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms, fantastic spacious garden with a lovely big barbeque and lots of seating... I could go on!
Steve and Alice were great hosts and the cottage was absolutely spotless when we arrived. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to others.
Mill Race does not disappoint and the photos don’t do it justice. Beautiful property and so well appointed and spotlessly clean. Our family party was grandparents to teenagers and everyone one of us loved it!! Thank u Steve and Alice xx
Family birthday celebrations.
We had a wonderful weekend at Mill Race, Hipswell. The house was extremely comfortable, with plenty of space for the eleven of us. Lovely garden, ideal for the children. Good location with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales.Friendly and welcoming hosts on our arrival and throughout our stay. Would highly recommend and would love to visit again. Thank you.
Mill Race-Home from Home
We are a family from Clevedon, North Somerset who’s daughter was to be married at nearby Bowes Museum, so we needed a “Home from Home”. Mill Race was the ideal venue. This property is special & it’s owners, Steve & Alice should be very proud of their achievement. Mill Race is spotlessly clean & lacks nothing, everything a family needs is supplied, the welcome pack was a lovely touch. Steve & Alice allowed us to host a lunch for family & friends on the Sunday to continue the celebrations, everyone was very impressed with Mill Race. This is a spacious private property in an ideal location run by 2 extremely warm & friendly people, our family rating is 5 stars. We will be staying with you again!
Madeline , Garry & family , Thank you so much for your very kind words about Mill race and ourselves, It was an absolute pleasure to have you to stay at Mill Race. We are so pleased you had a great stay and that the wedding went well and the sun shone for you .
We look forward to seeing you all again

Such a gorgeous place
I had booked the Mill race for an extended weekend to celebrate my husband's 40th with his mates. This barn conversion is so beautiful and clean. Alice and Steve are such good hosts, there was a picnic basket ready with some bubbly and basic needs. The kids had fun and enough room to run around and watch the woodland creatures. It really felt like a relaxing break catching up in comfort. A must visit in the Dales. So much to see. Thank you for having us.

Beautiful cottage in calm serene surroundings

The cottage is immaculate and fully equipped with everything you may need.
The hamper we received on arrival was a lovely touch and the clean and fresh linen & towels was well received.
Alice & Steve catered for all our requests and were very welcoming.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
