Just returned from a great weekend away in this property, meeting up with friends. The house was well stocked with everything you need. Plenty dishes, cutlery, cooking pots/trays etc. Also loads of teatowels, handtowels in all bathrooms/toilets & toilet rolls. There are 2 kitchens which is very handy, each has a fridge, dishwasher & cooker which was definitely needed as we were a group of 17 (10 adults + 7 kids). Plenty toilets/showers and the kids loved the jacuzzi bath. There were ample bedrooms for us, and the snug in the top of the house was great for the kids as it had 2 bedrooms and a "lounge" area in between. Do watch your head though as there are a lot of beams to bang on (as you would expect from such an old building). I loved all the bits and bobs of furniture and it was decorated with lots of interesting knickknacks. There are also loads of books to read & a small selection of CDs to play, also a toy box & games for younger kids. Be aware that there is no internet connection and very little mobile phone signal.

The outside area was great for sitting in the sun with plenty tables & umbrellas provided if the sun got too hot (yes it was September!). Be careful with young kids though as there is no grassy area for them to play on and some of the stone steps are a bit hazardous.

We walked into Orton for a Sunday lunch at The George - it was superb, lots to choose from and a good kids menu. You also get a discount for staying at Fawcett Mill.

All in all a great weekend.
