  • "We thought that Millstone House was a lovely place to stay; ideal for a three generation family of six."

    It was very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The owners were helpful but in no way intrusive. The only thing which could have been better was the weather - but it was February!

  • "Amazing thatched property with a fascinating history!"

    Village is very pretty too and great for a potter round with the dog. Absolutely beautifully clean and well equipped with plenty of room for the six of us. I especially liked the en suite bathroom with two sinks and fab shower! The owner left a very generous welcome pack including tea and coffee and wine which went down very well. Would recommend this lovely house!
