The Mill is a labour of love for the proprietors and this shows in every way, shape and form. The cleanliness was second to none: facilities within the Mill were top rate, everything finished to a high level, bed so comfy we did not want to get up in the mornings and James, Richard and Billie completed this experience for us. I wouldn't have swappeRead mored / missed this holiday for the world Hide

The property would benefit from having a walk in shower. The bath is lovely but if you're not too agile it's difficult to get in and out of. Otherwise property very comfortable. Great kitchen.
