  • "A wonderful holiday and property."

    All ages catered for, the whole experience was fantastic.

  • "Lovely spacious accommodation."

    The hot tub was great especially at night looking at the stars.

  • "The Mill House is the perfect venue for a family holiday."

    The owner was very welcoming and took time to show us around the property.There’s plenty of space and comfort and it is very well equipped. The additional bonus of the sauna, jacuzzi and play barns offers facilities for all ages. We were staying during Storm Dennis and although it curtailed our plans to explore the area somewhat the additional facilities more than made up for wet weather activities.

  • "I booked The Mill House for a long-weekend with friends to celebrate my 40th."

    It absolutely exceeded our expectations!! I booked for 8 adults and there was more than enough space for us all. All 6 bedrooms are ensuite and really spacious (even the 2 twin rooms). There are 2 toilets downstairs - one with a shower which is next to the large sauna and the backdoor out to the hot tub. The hot-tub is fabulous - it was pretty much ready to use when we arrived, sufficiently sheltered but with a great view of the night sky and easily accommodated us all. The downstairs is open plan with again plenty of space, the kitchen leads on to a dining area and then living space which also has a pool table. The large dining room table was great for sit down dinners together, and the living room space had some very comfy sofas and a good sized coffee table for games, drinks, or just chilling with DVDs. It is just such a sociable layout. There is also a large table outside near the hot tub and BBQ where we spent all of our mornings and lunch times given the glorious sunshine. The Mill House kitchen has 2 large dishwashers, a large American style fridge freezer, and a wine fridge - great for a large group, and accommodated the large food delivery we had pre-ordered. There is plenty outdoor space too - we brought our own croquet set, and an outdoor badminton set, but they also have 2 other barns with a selection of DVDs, more games, indoor badminton, and a climbing frame and ball pit for children. Did I mention free range eggs from the on site chickens? I would gladly book the Mill House again, and cannot recommend it enough. It is brilliantly equipped and both Julie and Robert were ever so helpful during our stay (even when one of my friends accidentally left with the Mill House keys). Thanks for a wonderfully memorable birthday!

  • "This is a beautiful holiday complex."

    We booked 4 of the cottages including the Mill House, an excellent venue for a large family get together with space for everyone to meet in the main house. The standard of accommodation was excellent, clean, modern and easy to live in. The hot tubs are very private with lovely outdoor sitting area too. Lots of space for adults and children to play in the games room and barn. The welcome was much appreciated, efficient but unfussy, nothing too much trouble. Would very much recommend to large or small groups.
