Staying in this cottage is a must! Absolutely beautiful place to stay with incredible hot tub! Ignore the review saying it doesn't get hot....You light a fire and the water gets hotter the more wood you burn, simple! Thanks to Belinda and Mike for making us so welcome:-)
Set in a stunning location, Mill Cottage is a hidden gem. We have spent the week enjoying beautiful walks around Hanley Mill, visiting quaint little villages and making good use of the fantastic log fired hot tub! Mill cottage is extremely well presented, inside and out! Belinda and Mike are incredibly welcoming and helpful and have made our stay unforgettable, especially with all of the lovely newlywed touches! We can't wait to come back again soon and we will most defiantly be recommending it to our friends and family!
The cottage is beautiful and a very peaceful location. Very remote and have to drive quite a way to pubs/restaurants etc. The décor is also brand new so very modern and received gifts on arrival which was lovely. (milk/eggs/bread)
However, If you are booking this on the basic that there is a 'hot tub' included, BEWARE......
The hot tub is a wood burner tub, not electric therefore we had to maintain the fire during our stay if we wanted to use it. This means, you have to stay in all day to heat the water and keep the fire going (stated when we arrived, takes up to 5 HOURS to heat the tub.) After maintaining the fire until late afternoon on the second day, we eventually gave up with the luke warm water, plus had little coal left (you have to BUY additional coal from the owners once you run out, seriously???)
The living space is also very tiny, only fitting 2x very small two seater sofas. they are so uncomfortable and definitely not the place to 'relax' and watch a film. With the design they could have invested into a corner sofa meaning you can stretch out and even sit next to each other. Not even a foot stool? :(
It was such a shame! Unfortunately on this basis I would not recommend this cottage to my family/friends. Sorry :(
