Stayed over to facilitate a trip to Balloo to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The accommodation is wonderful - we stayed in the river room which has it's own conservatory overlooking the small river that's runs along the back of the house - comfy bed, great shower. Warm welcome from Janice on arrival and then Paul cooked a wonderful breakfast for... More

It has been many years since I stayed in a b&b as I normally prefer a hotel but The Mill has totally changed my mind. The accommodation is of such a standard that if it was a hotel the room would have be completely out of our price range. This is not your standard accommodation, this is a very special... More

Brilliant hosts, a gorgeous room, and a delicious breakfast cooked by Paul. However we were cold for most of the time. I needed two pairs of socks in bed and getting out of bed and out of the shower were not pleasant experiences. We would definitely go back in the summer but not again in the winter.

We had a little bit of trouble finding the place (drove past the turn off) but when we arrived and saw the inside of the place was totally worth it. Its an converted water mill which was refurbished... More

I like this place. Stayed here for one night as had business locally and wanted to take clients out at the local restaurant. Its very rural and farming community so if you want some peace and quiet then you are in luck! My room was very interesting - a kind of tastefully converted barn and really huge with two big... More

We stayed at the Mill as part of a a break with dinner at Balloo House. We had the river room which we could not fault. Great hosts, the best breakfast we have had in years and the most comfortable of rooms with candelight, we will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Mill almost a year ago and absolutely loved it. We had been meaning to stay again and combine it with another visit to the upstairs restaurant at Balloo House....this lovely B&B is only a short walk away from Balloo House. We had recommended it to friends who also stayed in the B&B at the same time.... More
