What a find! With beautiful grounds, friendly reception, very comfortable accommodation and food to die for... what more could we ask for! On arrival we enjoyed a cool homemade lemonade while sat by the water watching the peacocks and ducks! Hornsbury Mill will be our regular place to stay whenever we are in Somerset now!
