  • "Honestly can’t explain how beautiful this place is."

    You can tell on photos, but in person it’s even better. Booked it for my mums surprise hen do with 20 of us so we had the whole place, and I couldn’t of wished for a better weekend. Everyone loved the place and said I couldn’t of picked a better place. The lake room is amazing, a lot of the group went up there every morning to relax while having a bru. The hot tub area is really nice with a lovely view of the whole cottage buildings. Every room was beautiful and there was more than enough space for everyone. My mum had the best weekend and that’s all I wanted. I have already said when the next person is getting married, this place will certainly be getting booked again!

  • "We loved staying at Wolfen Mill."

    It's ideally suited for large family gatherings and the balance between privacy in the individual apartments and the ability to meet up in communal areas for games etc... as and when required was perfect. We would not hesitate to book again both from a family and an individual perspective.

  • "Wolfen Mill totally exceeded anything we expected."

    The accommodation is fantastic. There was nothing we would change. Our family ranged from 2 months to 85 yrs, one disabled and a dog, all accessible, even fish in the lake pleased my husband. Dressing gowns, towels, t-towels all supplied. Even hot tub towels. Everyone was catered for. The attention to detail is amazing and would love to be able to return one day. Everyone we met in the village were so helpful, and all the businesses recommended each other. The pub quiz was definitely a plus. If you are put off walking to the village, take the route to the left outside the property, small rise then just a slope all the way to the village, still a trek back up, but lovely quiet stroll. Our deposit to the landlady was returned promptly on our return. such a beautiful area. The Gibbon Bridge hotel a few miles out had fantastic food, service and amazing gardens, well worth a trip. Cannot recommend Wolfen Mill enough and would give 10 stars if we could.

    I honestly don’t have words for how gorgeous the house is and how amazing the facilities are. We was a group of 20 ladies and everyone only had positive words to say! The owners were great and communication was quick and easy. We can’t wait to book again. Thank you so much.

    There were 20 people in our party covering 4 generations. The accommodation was exactly what we required and the hot tub was a great success.

  • "Absolutely magical stay in this beautiful part of the UK."

    Nestled in the trees and surrounded by a lake and babbling brooks, this beautiful building enabled a long awaited family reunion after covid. Our family members were all luxuriously accommodated in their own apartments whilst the communal areas allowed us to make many happy memories together whist we partied. Despite the cold weather and rain we were warm and snug and even managed a muddy walk as the landscape was so tempting!

  • "Beautiful large well furnished house we had all 9 apartments for our family get together to celebrated the missed birthdays due to Covid Lovely large dinning room and living room more than enough space for 20."

    The hot tub in the grounds was good and we had sole use of it as the other cottage was not let out that weekend .Fantastic family time spent doing games, dancing, cycling and just chatting really lucky to have had the time before the new 6 only rule came in. Would recommend this for anyone wanting accommodation for a large group as we all had our own bath/shower rooms and kitchens but used the catering kitchen for breakfast and dinners. Just had a fabulous time.

    We all had a fabulous time and can highly recommend the property for large groups! The location is fantastic (a short walk from quaint Chipping village, beautiful scenery, excellent walking and cycling on your doorstep) and the property is spacious with very good facilities. We'll definitely be coming back!
