Nestled in acres of woodland, the location alone is stunningly beautiful.
Whilst staying at the Old Sawmills you have the feeling of being on your own island, as access to the Sawmills is by boat... yet you can walk out anytime, along the scenic footpath of the Saints way.

A perfect place to unwind and listen to the wind in the trees and watch the Swans in the creek go about their day. No mobile phone signals and no cars - bliss. The last review I posted on this website was after a distinctly average visit to the 7* Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi - for me the Lodge...

The house itself is a good venue for a large group. It's finished to a good standard with plenty of space and is finished to a high standard. A big range cooker and plenty of large pans are well suited to catering for a large group. If there is a criticism it's that the main living space is a little...

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and so glad you enjoyed your stay. I'd just like to reassure potential guests that the Sawmills will shortly have its own private parking so they won't need to use the pay and display carpark in the village anymore.
