“Truly magical”
Reviewed December 20, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

It was 5 of us and we stayed at the Mill for a short weekend just before Christmas. The place is amazing. It is a luxury break together with historical experience!
We stayed for two nights and did not want to leave - could move in there tomorrow!:)
There are so many bathrooms in the Mill!:) It was hard to choose which one to use!
The top floor bedroom is like it is made for a honeymoon. Was perfect for us as me and my boyfriend just got engaged! It even has a separate bath - just breathtaking. And then - look outside the window - you are looking at the church, what a feeling!
The hot tub is also a brilliant idea - it warms you up in this cold time.
It felt like every single room was just perfect. We spent a lot of time in the living room next to fire place. Was very comfortable and cosy.
The owners are very polite and friendly.
I really hope to stay there again soon.

“Simply fabulous!”

I took my partner to the Braunston mill cottage for his birthday last weekend. The cottage is gorgeous, high tech, modern with every amenity but at the same time cosy & perfect for a couple. We arrived late on the Friday to a beautifully laid table, flowers, chocolates & wine. The owners had left us some goodies such as fresh orange juice, eggs, bread & cookies. The cottage is really cosy & stylish, we loved the round bath & our very own hot tub was total luxury! The cottage is a home away from home, so cosy & we totally relaxed. The cottage is close to Warwick & lemington spa & easily accessible to the motorway network. We spent a day in Warwick & had dinner at a pub called the Rose & crown it has won several awards & the food was suberb. I travel alot & I have very high standards, I would recommend Braunston to couples who like quality & want to stay somewhere extra special. We will definitely go back and we hope to stay in the mill next time. We live in Kent but the journey to the cottage in Braunston was totally worth it.

“An 'A List' Place”
Reviewed November 10, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

The quailty of the Mill is well portrayed by other reviews, and we can only agree. It's obviously not a place for anyone with mobility difficulties, and not really suitable for youngters that would race about the place, but we found it ab fab.

Braunston seems a bit of an oasis in the centre of a relatively uninspriring area, but not a bad base to cover some of the hot-spots in the Midlands. As most large villages with 4 pubs, it might now be better to have 2 busy ones, than 3 on the verge of closing, but this is a pandemic and Braunston's done well to hang on to 4 to date.

Don't miss a breakfast on the narrow boat near the marina entrance - this was a major highlight of the stay.

We found the owner to be very helpful. I can understand how the 'warning signs' in frames in many of the rooms can rub some people up the wrong way but we had no issues.

“Beautiful stay in a listed Mill”
Reviewed September 23, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Easy to find, you can see the Mill from the main road towering next to the Church as you approach Braunston.
On arrival there is a welcome pack of essential food items, kitchen is well stocked with essential gadgets and utensils. The Mill is clean and decorated in a modern contemporary style. Hottub very relaxing, BBQ available. Lovely steam shower. All mod cons means a stay at The Mill is very relaxing.

Friendly owners available but not intrusive. Nr to a variety of pubs and the canal (must have breakfast on the canal boat) and Leamington spa is worth a visit.

My partner Tim and I ,my son William together with our close friends Jane & Nigel and their daughter Isabelle had the pleasure of staying at the MIll for a midweek break. We were more than impressed with the windmill - the decor was stunning and well thought out, the welcome food pack was more than welcome plus all the condiments & toiletries made our stay that little bit easier. The windmill had clearly been cleaned professionally from top to bottom in preparation for our arrival and the fresh flowers and bowl of sweets were a lovely touch ( even if we did have to hide the sweeties from the kids after an hour!) Our hosts gave us a lovely warm welcome and assured us they were at the end of the phone for even the slightest query. The local amenities are more than sufficient if you dont fancy using your car - for an extra treat we booked a day on a canal boat which is well worth the extra cash just for the experience, however just walking alongside the canal and helping others throught the locks is equally as entertaining especially for the children. Luckily the weather was glorious for our break and we took full use of the hot tub and even managed a bbq ( huge barbie in the garden which was also clean and easy to use). We would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone ( ignore the previous bad review it couldnt be further from the truth) My adivce for staying at the windmill... firstly book early ( anyone who has previously been will recommend time and time again) secondly if you do stay at the windmill, dont leave your car keys on the bedside table and only realise when you are at the front door some 7 flights of stairs away!!! Believe me you will only do it once!! A beautiful building in a lovely location, sympathectically renovated with every attention given to detail - a 5 star experience.

“most fantastic romantic break ever”

Myself and my husband have just returned from a mid week break at the windmill. The windmill was fabulous. exceptionally luxurious. Situated in beautiful countryside in a quiet village. This stay surpassed all my expectations. I felt it was real value for money with friendly hosts who were at the end of the phone for any probelms we may have had.
which were none. The windmill is decorated to a high standard with such detail its stunning. There are a couple of pubs which provide meals also a fantastic indian takeaway that delivers from Daventry. As a runner the area provides perfect routes for country runs or walks. There isnt many things to do in the area as such, but it is a peaceful retreat not a holiday park so is to be expected. The windmill and jacuzzi are enough to keep one busy. The arrivel food and wine were a plus and gave that special touch. The only down side is the windmill is so booked i will have to wait a while to re -visit. I also have to comment on the negative reviews on this sight and have no idea where these people stayed as it couldnt have possibly been the windmill. Thanks for a fantastic stay. Mr and Mrs Hathaway. Weymouth.

“Relaxing, luxurious escape.”

Having read the reviews, we were looking forward to our break at the mill and we weren't disappointed. The car didn't leave the drive as everything we needed was walking distance and we didn't want to leave such a beautiful mill.
We were greeted by the owners who were very friendly and explained what was nearby and then just left us to explore the place. Some goodies were left for us in the kitchen which were appreciated.
All the rooms were tastefully decorated, especially loved the free standing bath in the top bedroom. Felt the circular bed on the lower level may be a bit of a struggle to sleep in for tall people. Be prepared for the stairs, your leg muscles will get a good work out.
Would definately come back here but need to get there quick as appears to be booking up quick.
