Newby is proud to present Glasshouses Mill. This charming 19th century mill has been carefully transformed into an outstanding collection of 1 to 4 bedroom luxury apartments, cottages and houses. Its location in the heart of Nidderdale allows residents to experience a truly idyllic lifestyle, with panoramic views of the Yorkshire Dales countryside and a peaceful setting alongside the River Nidd.
Situated within a short drive of Pateley Bridge and Harrogate, Glasshouses Mill is located in a beautiful countryside village, surrounded by picturesque woodland walks, waterscapes and breath-taking views. Enjoy the outdoors with a visit to Brimham Rocks or embrace the wildlife whilst you cycle alongside the river to Pateley Bridge, alternatively you can take a stroll to the Birch Tree Inn for locally sourced meals.
n the early 19th century the Nidd Valley was discovered to be the ideal location for cotton and flax mills. Glasshouses Mill was built around 1812, first for producing cotton, and later flax.
The mill was run by the Metcalfe family from 1828 onwards, and was a prosperous business that employed around 250 people. The Metcalfes were said to be model employers and benefactors, and ran Glasshouses Mill until the end of the 19th century. Around this time, production switched to hemp spinning and rope making. It is said that the mill supplied rope used on the ill-fated Titanic.
Over the years, many additions were made to Glasshouses Mill, but its central range, with the iconic clock tower, is one of the oldest surviving parts. Today, the mill is a Grade II listed building and remains a magnificent structure.
The 2 bedroom homes include cottages in the main mill, the Mechanics Shop and the Pug Mill. The cottages in the main mill are spread generously over three floors, with exposed beams showing off the character of this unique building. Both bedrooms feature their own bathroom and many come complete with private outdoor space. The homes in the Mechanics Shop have extensive views over the Nidd Valley and the existing doors and window openings have been retained.
The original stonework within the Pug Mill has been reinstated, with natural weathered oak boarding and heritage windows creating a characterful stand-alone home.
Created from grand spaces within the original mill, these wonderful homes have retained a number of original features including the stunning exposed beams. Offering spacious living areas over three or four floors in a classic townhouse style, each home also boasts a secluded garden and generous outdoor space.
Forming part of the original main mill building, the apartments range from one bedroom to three bedroom homes. They have been designed for a multitude of lifestyles, with character features of a heritage building, such as the exposed beams, alongside an open-plan living space and a modern, high quality specification. The apartments are also set in a prime location of the mill, overlooking the River Nidd and offering far reaching views across the rolling hills.
