  • "This house and its facilities were BRILLIANT."

    There was 14 of us and this house was just perfect for everything we needed. From soft play, to the hot tub, the huge living room and kitchen plus the games room. There was something for everyone and it was the perfect weekend away for my mums Birthday. We had babies with us and the place was secure and safe with lots to do for them. Thank you so much to Robert who was a lovely host who was there for anything we needed and was so kind. I could not recommend this place enough. Lots of bathrooms, decent sized bedrooms, so clean and the best place for large groups to have fun and relax. I can’t wait to return as we loved it.

  • "We had a wonderful time at The Mill."

    Fantastic property with excellent facilities. The play barn and hot tub was such a hit with kids and adults alike (and handy with it being not great weather). Good size, well equipped, kitchen. Great having a bathroom each too. Robert was on hand to deal with any minor issues/queries promptly.

  • "The Mill House was a last-minute booking for us (after our original booking sprang a leak!"

    ) and it couldn’t have been more perfect for a group of old friends getting together and bringing assorted babies, toddlers and children. The house was lovely and spacious, and the children had a splendid time in the soft play area, on the climbing frame, and collecting eggs from the chickens, while the adults took turns enjoying the hot tub! Robert was very helpful, friendly and flexible. The surrounding countryside is lovely, but we felt no need to leave the property, with so much to entertain us on site!

  • "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!

    The property was very spacious and cleverly designed to give different areas for people to sit comfortably. Everyone could be seated at the dining table and the kitchen was well equipped. All of the bedrooms being en-suite was an added bonus.The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this property for large groups.

  • "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.
