I was looking for a B&B for a quick overnight stop. Gages Mill turned out to be a fantastic find. I checked a few details by email before booking, and got a prompt, friendly, and helpful response. That set the tone for the stay really. Very friendly and accommodating. Good rooms. Good breakfast. I've stayed in 5* hotels at three... More

We liked everything about this warm friendly guest house. The facilities were very good and immaculately clean without being impersonal and corporate - we felt at home and were well looked after. Lovely breakfast. Will recommend to all. Fiona and Hugh

This was my second visit to Gages mill and it will not be my last. I am a little late writing this review and in the meantime have attempted to book a further 2 occasions however the mill has been full. A testament to the quality of this B&B.

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting our daughter, who made the reservation on the basis of local recommendations. We found it really excellent. We had a warm welcome, enjoyed a relaxed, friendly atmosphere throughout our stay, good breakfasts and a comfortable room with modern en-suite. We shall hope to return next time we visit our daughter.

We stayed at Gages Mill for 2 nights last week-end. The whole experience was great - spotlessly clean, well appointed, delicious breakfast. The fruit salad was superb as was the 'full English'.

We chose this B&B because it is close to where my daughter and her family were staying in their caravan, and when we looked at the website we really liked what we read. Then when we got there we found it really does exactly what it says on the website. I do not normally write reviews, but having looked at... More
