“Look no further...”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is an amazing self-catering property, with everything you could possibly need.

The owner provides an exceptional level of service, including sending a list of what is already in the house for you to use and an excellent welcome pack of the area. The kitchen is very well equipped, there is a separate laundry room, sauna, steam room, tennis court, the list goes on. If you need anything, the owner is on hand and very responsive but not at all intrusive.

There are also lots of things to do in the surrounding area, including plenty of ways to keep kids occupied.

We have pretty high standards when it comes to holidays and this place exceeded them without a doubt.

Look no further and book now!

“The most welcoming, relaxing & breathtaking stay!! HIGHLY recommend.”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed with a big group recently, my good friend was getting married so the bridal party (and me, also the photographer) all stayed at this amazing location the night before and night after the wedding.

It was easy enough to find, rural enough so you felt away from it all but a short drive into the centre of it all again. I had the misfortune however of locking my camera in the church overnight accidentally (really bad day to be ditzy!) and couldn't get it back till the morning, so in my panic trying to find some sort of camera, the owner VERY kindly let me use hers! Total life saver!! She was so incredibly welcoming and friendly, almost like we'd known her already.

The house.... well its easy to say its above and beyond anything iv ever stayed in! Every detail was thought of. The design is so breathtaking, we all ran around the house checking it out and gasping at each new room we found, and that every room was named after a tree and had that particular wood in it, was such a beautiful touch. The beds were extremely comfortable, slept like a baby (and for someone who sleeps terribly usually). The fire was on for us when we arrived too, and useful things in the fridge like milk and butter! Plus, the double shower and sauna/steam room was so cool!

The house goes without saying, it was incredibly beautiful and comfortable. We all had a fantastic stay, and i got my photos fine... phew! :)

I really could not recommend this place any more to anyone thinking of staying here. A weekend i will not forget anytime soon :) Thank you!

We had booked this accommodation for my sisters "hen-do" and we're not disappointed. The accommodation is excellent inside and out, especially the beautiful kitchen and bedrooms. There is plenty to do nearby for those who like walking or cycling and would highly recommend "Go Ape" as an activity. The owners helped us get in touch with a local business who came to "The Mill" to do reflexology and facials, and the cake and jam waiting for us was a lovely touch too. We had a lovely, relaxing weekend, just what the "bride to be" wanted.!!!

I stayed at The Mill the evening before my wedding with all 6 bridesmaids and another friend. I honestly could not have asked for a place more beautiful, inspiring, or peaceful. Every detail of the house has been finished to an exceptional standard, you can tell a lot of love and care went into the design and build of this place. Having 8 females in one house we were delighted to find each room had it's own ensuite (one even with a sauna!)-and ample hot water to supply all...just what a bridal party need! The Mill truly surpassed my wildest dreams. Thank you! X

I had the pleasure of staying at the Mill over my sister's wedding weekend with seven other's in the bridal party. I can't stress enough how beautiful this property is, from the grounds, to the decor to the host who made us feel so incredibly welcome! From baking us a cake on arrival to finding a solution to our last minute camera emergency, Lulu went above and beyond to make our stay excellent.

The building is a refurb of a sturdy old mill, which has a strong sense of integrity to it, with every detail lovingly constructed to a really high finish. Each room is made from a different wood, remnants of which can be seen in the quaint lumberyard on the drive up to the house. The wood decor not only creates a beautiful aesthetic but subtly enhances your experience with it's dainty scent. Aromas continue with the open fire, which was a great accompaniment to our cosy night in, alongside the luxurious sauna which was the icing on the cake to our evening!

Lulu has paid great attention to detail to create this immaculate house, where there was literally not a speck of dust to be found! (I really did check!) The kitchen was fitted out with top quality housewares and had more than anything we needed, including a very welcomed coffee grinder and two dishwashers! Underfloor heating throughout and luxury bedding played a big role in our comfort that weekend. The decor was minimalist but considered, with unique handmade wooden lamps and furniture adding a personal touch.

The Mill's location is idyllic, and the scenery completely removes you from the bustle of daily life. Horses roam by close to a stunning lake, which can be seen from a large garden table- the perfect view for a memorable breakfast.

If you are looking for a top quality, welcoming, beautiful escape from city life, this is the property to visit. You won't be disappointed!

“Luxurious yet comfortable.”

We stayed at The Mill as part of our Ruby Wedding celebrations and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The house is beautiful with many luxurious features but yet felt so comfortable we didn't want to leave! The gorgeous kitchen is very well equipped and the living areas very pleasant and relaxing. Bedrooms have lovely feather quilts and crisp white sheets and plenty of thick, soft, white towels. Two stair gates kept our toddler grandson safe and his cot was spotless with excellent bedding.There are lots of small touches throughout the house to make the guests stay more pleasurable. (The yummy cake was much appreciated! As were the marshmallows for toasting). Lulu and Johnny are excellent hosts and although at the end of the phone to deal with queries, left us to our own devices so it was nice, for a short time at least, to pretend the house was ours! Would like to come back to this beautiful part of the country with so much to see and do and would love to come back to The Mill.

“Simply beautiful”

As 5* self-catering holiday cottage owners ourselves, we are probably the most picky of customers when it comes to choosing a self catering property for our own holiday. The Mill did not let us down. It is a beautiful property with lots of thought out into the design of each room. We loved the bespoke wood furniture and the open fire crackling away on the wild winter nights. It was a perfect hide away for us to escape for a few days. Hosts Johnny and Lulu are lovely hosts. Kind and friendly, we could t have wished for any better. They welcomed us with a delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake which we very much enjoyed.

We would very highly recommend the mill to anyone looking for a luxurious get away. If you like to cook. The kitchen is beautiful and very well equipped, it made cooking a pleasure. We also had our 8 month old son with us and we're provided with a cot, high chair and stair gate free of charge.

Can't recommend this place highly enough. We hope to send more customers your way Lulu and Johnny! Thank you for a lovely stay :)
