“Lovely owners who welcomed us into their fabulous holiday property.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Everyone in our group, aged from 9 to 73, had a fabulous time. Especially good for having family meals as 15 of us could sit round the huge circular table. Everything we needed was provided and the swimming pool was a big hit with all concerned.

“Absolutely Fabulous !”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed at the Old Mill in June with family and friends for my mum's 70th birthday, The Mill was delightful. I could not imagine it being more stunning that the photos.it was! even my 20 year old son was blown away and it takes a lot to impress youngers nowadays! The facilities were faultless Sandra and Gary had thought of everything and were so kind and helpful from the moment of our enquiry, during our stay and after
We couldn't make our minds up as to heating the pool, so so glad we did, we went in more than once everyday even on the overcast day we had and the eves, it was lovely and warm, defiantly take your swim wear
Would Love to be able to stay again it was magical...

“Spacious and spotless”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I have just got back from a short break with my friends from the mill and I have to say it was amazing. All the bedrooms were large enough with the beds being exceptionally comfy, the tower being 7 storey's was the tallest building around and on a nice day (which we got all the time) you can see for miles. There seemed to be enough space for everyone to be alone when wanted and group together for meals/films etc. The pool definitely made the whole place it was lovely and warm (we paid for the heating option) and meant there was always something to do. All in all it deserves nothing left than five stars.

“Amazing property”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I recently stayed at The Old Mill for a friends hen do. There were 14 of us and I can't rave enough about this property. It's absolutely stunning, even more so then in the photos and it works really well for a large group get together, especially in the summer with the outdoors pool. Although I imagine it's equally as stunning in the Winter. The bedrooms are all a good size and there's plenty of space in the lounges and dining room. The owners are also extremely helpful in the lead up to the booking and have been a pleasure to organise our stay with. We had a great time and I can't wait to come back and stay again soon.

“Couldn't ask for much more...”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just returned from a week-long stay at the Old Mill with a large group of friends. The accommodation cannot be faulted in terms of facilities, quality and comfort - the Mill really is spectacular, every room is very nicely finished and all accessories etc. are of really good quality.

Our group was made up entirely of 30-something's and while we all enjoyed our stay I think the Mill would be best suited to families as the selection of games, sports equipment, outside space etc... was mostly wasted on us and there's very little to do socially nearby.

I'd also recommend that whoever you go with, you make sure you know them very well. The tower rooms in particular are all interconnected and have no doors between them so there isn't much privacy there. Also, with only 2 proper showers (there is also a shower attachment on a separate bath but you can't stand as there's no screen) you will find that with the Mill sleeping so many individuals there can be quite a queue/scrum for a shower.

“Excellent accommodation with a twist!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just returned from a five night stay at then Old Mill to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Party of 9 adults and our two 8 month old grandchildren! The Mill has a warm friendly air about it and had absolutely everything we could possibly have needed, including high chairs and travel cots. The beds and bed linen were very comfortable and beautifully clean. We took advantage of having the pool heated, which was most enjoyable. All in all, our stay was a great success. We were blessed with beautiful weather, which was a bonus and intend to book again for next year!

“Fantastic weekend in an absolutely beautiful house"”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The Old Mill looked wonderful from the photos online but they did not do it justice, the house was absolutely amazing and the windmill tower itself was exceptional - we all had to fight over the bedrooms!!
Everything was great for us; owners were very welcoming. kitchen facilities, bathrooms, living & dining areas and the gardens were incredible.
I would absolutely recommend this property to a friend and will definitely be going back myself - we have a fantastic weekend at The Old Mill!
