This is a superb venue with a welcoming host, Patricia, who offered tea or coffee with homemade cakes on arrival.
We had a complimentary upgrade to the 4-poster bedroom but also had an oppportunity to view the other rooms during our stay of 4 nights (we'd originally only intended to stay for three!), and would have been delighted to stay in any of the rooms.
Our bedroom was superb with very high standards of taste,decor and cleanliness with lots of special "touches". Tea and coffee making facilities were available (with fine bone china cups and saucers) as well as a bowl of fruit. The totally silent fridge contained drinks and fresh milk as well as homemade chocolates.
The bed was enormous and very comfortable and the bathroom was very large with a spa corner bath.
The view from the bedroom looked over fields with highland cattle only 30yds. or so from the window and the two bathroom windows overlooked open fields.
The breakfasts were superb with plenty of choices including a daily variety of freshly baked scones, bread rolls etc, straight from the aga, complemented by homemade jams.
We're amazed that Mill Close Farm is not No. 1 on the Tripadvisor site as it's difficult to believe it can be bettered!
It's by far the best B&B we've ever stayed in and exceeds, by far, the vast majority of hotels (some very expensive) we've visited.
In fact, we've already booked a return visit!!
