Mill Water House
Ranked #7 of 12 Axminster B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Delightful B&B. Tim and Ruth make this place special. Very accommodating and helpful without being obtrusive. White pristine ironed bed linens. Very quiet. Breakfast was very nice with good coffee. Parking was good. Weather was too cold and damp to enjoy the grounds. Bathroom was very small and spotless. I could not have comfortably shared the room with my husband who takes up a lot of space. At least one bedroom is very large. Convenient for River Cottage courses and a short walk from the Canteen.

What a delight. Unfortunately, we arrived late in the evening and could not fully enjoy the great grounds, but did have a chance to look at them the next morning. As mentioned in previous reviews, Tim and Ruth are delightful and very interesting to talk to. They recommended two pubs for dinner, as it was late we chose the one in town. Good value meal and host and patrons friendly, as Tim and Ruth had said they would be. The room was very clean, window overlooked the beautiful gardens and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom had all the amenities and well appointed, but a bit tight shaving at the mirror. Wonderful breakfast. They did everything they could do to make our stay wonderful. Treated us more like friends visiting than guests. We would stay again, but would plan to get in a bit earlier!

My wife and I stayed with Ruth and Tim at this quaint house in Axminister, a 5 minute stroll from the heart of the town. Not a lot in Axminister, save for a couple of friendly pubs and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Cafe and Deli - our real reason for visiting.

Tim and Ruth are a delightful couple, very welcoming and made our short stay with them very pleasant. The room we had was small but ample for a one night stay. We made the mistake of carting our complete baggage up, or at least Tim kindly lugged it up the narrow stairway for us. I would recommend if possible to carry a small overnight bag (we have since started using a shopping bag) with just your essentials packed. The stairway is not very wide and is quite steep.

Breakfast was good and hearty with a good selection of cereals and hot food that you would expect - Bacon eggs, sausage, mushrooms etc. Plenty of good English butter and jams. Would definitely return if travelling down this way.

We stayed here last night, I told Tim a month ago that I was taking my fiancé to river cottage canteen for his birthday as a surprise, while eating breakfast this morning Tim asked how our meal was so it was lovely that he remembered! Both Tim and Ruth are very friendly and make you feel at home, plenty of tea and coffee facilities and even a mini fridge to keep milk etc in! It was literally a ten minute walk to the restaurant and 10 minutes drive to Lyme Regis where we spent the whole day! All in a all a lovely place to stay and an ideal location!

We stayed at Mill Water House B&B for one night on our way to the South-West. Tim and Ruth were both very welcoming recommending a friendly local pub and restaurants in town. They also recommended visiting the nearby seaside village of Beer, which was beautiful. The room was immaculate, with a very comfortable bed and pretty bed linen. The breakfast was tasty and local. This was an excellent stay and I would definitely recommend a visit.

We stayed in May 2012 for two nights to attend a nearby wedding. I could not fault the location, the property, the price or the service at this B&B.

The room was immaculate and everything had been considered. The breakfast was *amazing*, very fresh and even cooked to my incredibly specific requirements (I'm very celiac and become ill at the slightest gluten contaminant). The bed was comfortable and the shower powerful and hot.

Our hosts were welcoming but also gave us plenty of space. The place feels very private and quiet, which was just what we wanted but the town was also very nearby which is great for those who don't drive as you can walk the journey from the local station. Our only regret was leaving after two days, as we could gladly have stayed here much longer than that.

Beautiful B&B, lovely house and garden and a very friendly cat! Breakfast was amazing - all freshly made and a lot of it home made or home grown. Rooms were clean and well presented with everything we needed. Woken up by sounds of birdsong and the babbling brook - how idyllic! Good location for River Cottage, Axminster and Lyme Regis and the Jurassic coast. A great B&B offering more like hotel standard of service with homely surroundings without feeling like you were intruding - the perfect balance. Great value too.
