Sometimes in life you feel very lucky! This was exactly how I felt having discovered this marvellous B&B. Excellent value, comfortable spacious rooms, delicious breakfasts. I felt very much at home. I will certainly be back.

We've just returned from our second stay at Mill Water House. What a lovely b&b. Tim & Ruth are delightful hosts - nothing is ever too much, and they're always happy for a chat. They couldn't have been more accommodating for my wife and 8 month old son. Nice, clean rooms and ensuite bathrooms. And delish breakfasts! They are about... More

I stayed at the Mill Water House in early May. All the good things the other contributers say are true. I had a large room with sofa, the bathroom was a good size, and the shower actually worked well (why are the showers in hotels and guest houses so often a let-down). Breakfast was excellent, and was taken around a... More

We stayed one night whilst attending River Cottage HQ Saturday evening. As everyone has said Ruth and Tim go out of the way with their hospitality. It is a lovely house and immaculately presented. Ruth and Tim organised a taxi for six of us to travel to and from River Cottage,everything went perfectly. Thank you so much for such a... More

Delightful B&B. Tim and Ruth make this place special. Very accommodating and helpful without being obtrusive. White pristine ironed bed linens. Very quiet. Breakfast was very nice with good coffee. Parking was good. Weather was too cold and damp to enjoy the grounds. Bathroom was very small and spotless. I could not have comfortably shared the room with my husband... More

What a delight. Unfortunately, we arrived late in the evening and could not fully enjoy the great grounds, but did have a chance to look at them the next morning. As mentioned in previous reviews, Tim and Ruth are delightful and very interesting to talk to. They recommended two pubs for dinner, as it was late we chose the one... More

My wife and I stayed with Ruth and Tim at this quaint house in Axminister, a 5 minute stroll from the heart of the town. Not a lot in Axminister, save for a couple of friendly pubs and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Cafe and Deli - our real reason for visiting. Tim and Ruth are a delightful couple, very welcoming... More
