Delayed review as my wife and I stayed here on 2nd July while visiting relatives locally. There are many exceptional thing about The River Mill. Firstly the renovation and sympathetic conversion of what was clearly a very run down Mill has resulted in an imaginative home in a peaceful and to my eyes romantic location. Secondly Aiden who was on his own was one of the most welcoming hosts we have ever encountered. We enjoyed hearing about his role in "The Shore" a much praised short film shot locally. He even gave us a DVD copy as a present! Our large room was on the ground floor with our own access and key. Breakfast was as described in other reviews. We like to think we left as friends!
