When we arrived we were all amazed at the view of the house and couldn't wait to explore it. Unfortunately when we entered the amount of post on the floor told nobody had been there recently and a cobweb from the stairs to the dining table didn't help either. The place was very dusty but worst of all the kitchen contents were disgusting burnt food in the frying pan and baking trays we had to wash them before we could use them. The drawer with kitchen utensils housed 2 mouldy wooden rolling pins amongst them so we didn't touch them. I did ask the cleaner/caretaker who arrived just as we were leaving if she would use them and she said 'no' but she had been on to the owners several times about replacing things but nothing was done about it. My husband sat on the side of the bed and disappeared engulfed in a memory foam mattress, the slats on the bed had moved there was nothing to stabilise them. the out side area (the decking) was covered in dead leaves and all plants out there large and small were dead not a place to sit and enjoy. But, at the back of the house was a lovely lake with lots of wild life, the views were great. The house itself was quaint and plenty of room for us all (10 adults) if only it was cleaner. Tickhill is a lovely town and the surrounding area was lovely but sadly our family reunions will not be returning to the 'Watermill'
The qauintness of the 'The Watermill' and the area
The uncleanilness of the kitchen equipment most of all
