Perfect in every sense. From the welcoming cup of tea in real china cups and homemade cake, the genuine warmth of Lionel and Alison, the spotless rooms, and the idyllic surroundings, this B&B knocked our socks off. We were very sorry to leave. We recommend it to anyone. James and Daniel

It was a wonderful place with a welcoming cup of tea and home made cake on the afternoon of our arrival and every afternoon after that!

After reading several reviews for the Watermill we decided to make a booking and Lionel was very helpful.
