“Wonderful Base for the Northern Cotswolds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Mill House B & B was pretty much exactly what I had hoped for in experiencing the charm of the Cotswolds in a luxury, authentic setting.

We arrived around 6:30 P M and were given a friendly welcome and tour of the house. Once settled in, we gathered in the front room for wine and a tasty trail mix. It was a chilly evening, and we were hoping someone would light the fire, but that didn't happen - although the housekeeper lit it for us the second night of our stay. Lovely! Had dinner later that night at the Swan in Broadway. The owner made the reservation for us, and it was quite good.

My husband and I had the garden suite and our daughter had the balcony room. The garden suite is quite spacious, but the bed is described as a 4-poster regency king. Well the four posters are there and the bedding is quite lovely and comfortable, but the king-sized description was way off the mark - a stretch to even call it a queen by U S standards and this was a big disappointment resulting in not very restful sleep for us as we both tend to toss and turn. A shame, as this spacious, lovely room could easily have been configured to include a king bed. The bath, however, was pure luxury and the seating areas in the bedroom quite comfortable. And the views, from all the rooms, post-card perfect.

Our daughter had the balcony room, which was quite small, but she did find it comfortable enough for one person and with warmer weather, the balcony would have been put to great use. A nice tea service and fluffy bath robes were available in both rooms along with a mini fridge with complimentary waters.

The breakfasts are delicious and beautifully served in a lovely dining room overlooking the gardens. The eggs benedict are probably the best I've had anywhere and the breads - mouthwatering. Lovely fresh flowers on our table each morning and an abundance of yogurts, cereals, fresh fruits. No need for lunch after a meal like this and thank goodness for the availability of beautiful long walks in the area to do a bit of damage control.

Our favorite walk was the one through sheep fields up to the Tower. It was lambing season, and they were just adorable.

Broadway is an easy walk and has numerous good restaurants (Russells, our favorite, and recommended by the owner) and shops. So many delightful villages in the area and we tried to see as many as possible. Don't miss a meal the The Fox gastropub in Oddington.

The owners and help are all very friendly here and we felt most welcomed and comfortable ( except for the bed issue) Their dogs are adorable! Glad we chose this spot for our "rambles" amid the beautiful Cotswolds. An easy base to see both Oxford and Stratford - on - Avon.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms - 2 of which are quite small, so for 2 people, the garden suite would be my recommendat...

We stayed at the amazing Mill Hay Country House for 2 nights and wish we had stayed longer! The log fire in the living room, the warm welcome from our Host, to the beautiful decor in the Rose Garden room: everything was perfect for a relaxing getaway from the city.

Breakfast was taken over looking the rose garden itself in all its splendor with a magnificent view of the surrounding fields and terrain. The range of cooked breakfasts on offer was of the highest quality with the eggs benedicts the best had in a long time. The house is a 10 minute walk from Broadway, a lovely village with a multitude of shops.

Mill Hay Country House is highly recommended and we would place it high on our list of places to stay in the near future.

From the time of booking through to departure, Mill Hay Country House is a lovely experience. This was our second visit (first in 2010), and I was so delighted when they still had a room available for us. It is a beautiful country home on lovely grounds in an easy-to-access location. The rooms are lovely, the staff will help you with local attractions and directions and the made-to-order breakfast is wonderful (thank you, Annette and Jane!). We would absolutely return here again and again. This is a wonderful way to treat yourself or someone else whilst you visit the beautiful Cotswolds.

My partner treated me to a weekend away here for my birthday, it was also our last before the arrival of our first baby in 7 weeks time. He could not have chosen a more beautiful place to stay. The house and grounds are absolutely stunning. We were upgraded to the Garden Suite which was luxurious and so comfortable. Our hosts, Annette and Nigel couldn't have been more welcoming. Drinks were offered on arrival and each evening and they even offered to light the fire for us as it was such a miserable night. Breakfast was a gastronomic feast and the choice was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend Mill Hay House and hope that we can persaude the grandparents to babysit so we can go back again.

My parents and I stayed here for a night, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The house itself is magnificent; we felt like we were stepping 200 years back in time. The lawns and gardens were beautiful. The rooms were spotless and very cozy - my parents stayed in the Garden Suite (which they were upgraded to for free), and I was in the Balcony Room. Annette, who runs it along with her husband, was incredibly welcoming. And the breakfast was one of the best I've had in a long time. Highly, highly recommended!

My partner and I spent the weekend in Mill Hay House and plan to repeat the experience soon.
We were warmly welcomed and our stay was made very comfortable from beginning to end. We stayed in the Garden Room: a stately bedroom with a four-poster bed, but far from being too pretentious. The bathroom had a shower embedded in the wall and a big bath inviting for a bubbly and relaxing time.
However, what we appreciated the most was the service offered during our stay. The owners made our stay very comfortable and "homely". They cared about every single detail and we felt spoilt! Our breakfast was a feast, we were served with a delicious vegetarian breakfast and once again, we enjoyed a personal service that we wouldn't have had in a 5-star hotel.
We can't wait to visit again Mill Hay House.
