Looking for a large house for a family get together wasn't easy (there are 16 of us in total), the problems were!! not big enough, too expensive and not enough to satisfy all age groups. Then we stumbled upon this beautiful Mill house, from looking at the pictures and reading past reviews, we knew this was it. On the day of our arrival and as we drove in from all directions our expectations were high. It went beyond what we had hoped, all I can say is that as soon as you walk inside this beautiful building until the moment you leave you can not fail to have a fabulous time, from big comfy sofas in all the lounges, spacious well equipped kitchen that made cooking for large numbers a pleasure, the heated pool that we all enjoyed, the games room and the stunning bedrooms and bathrooms. Just perfect!! We met the lucky owners Sandra and Gary during our stay and you couldn't ask for more genial hosts. Just in the process for rebooking for next year, cannot wait.

Our family have just spent the weekend at this fabulous property. I booked the Old Mill for my husband's birthday and it didn't disappoint. We are 14 people in total (age range 7 - 70) and there was so much space for everyone. The bedrooms are unique, particularly in the tower and the view at the top of the tower is simply stunning. The master suite is huge and my husband and I were very comfortable. The house was so well equipped with everything you need for a family of fourteen of varying ages. We didn't see much of the grandchildren (age range 7 - 17) as they were either in the pool, playing snooker, table tennis, football or lounging on the comfy sofas on their phones or iPad as there is also Wi-Fi at the Old Mill. We took advantage of the Fine Dining Experience on Sunday evening for my husband's birthday. Our meal was prepared by the owner Gary, helped by two lovely young waiters who were very professional. We ate at the large round ding table which sits at the bottom of the tower and the food and presentation were first class, so thank you Gary. The pool can be heated on request and was warm enough for swimming on a chilly May day and well used by us all. From the booking process made through Sandra who is Gary's wife to the very small detail, nothing was too much trouble and once at the Old Mill you can completely relax and unwind. Our weekend far exceeded my expectations and I know the family will be talking about their time at the Old Mill for a very long time. I have no hesitation in recommending this 5 Star property. Thank you so much to Sandra and Gary for letting our family stay in this wonderful property which I have no hesitation in recommending. 5 Star

“150th birthday celebration”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a wonderful way to celebrate my Dad's 90th and my sister's 60th with 4 generations, including my brother and his family from Canada. The spacious house fitted us perfectly and Sandra made us very welcome with all her thoughtful advance planning. The highlight was a fabulous meal cooked by Gary and served by Sandra and the chaps in the lovely round dining room at the foot of the tower. I have already recommended it to many friends.

“Incredible and unique place to stay”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I spent a weekend in The Old Mill with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. I can't even begin to express how amazing the place is and don't have enough superlatives in my vocabulary to do it justice.
This old listed windmill is the most unique and beautiful place I've ever stayed. It is absolutely huge, to the extent we got lost on a number of occasions. The place is very comfortable and also really well equipped. Despite its size, it feels like a really snug home.
The games room made for some great fun for all ages and I'm sure the pool would be lovely in the warmer months.
On top of this, Sandra was very good with communication and very understanding of our needs.
I couldn't rate the place highly enough!

“Absolutely amazing accommodation.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Booked by my son for 12 of us to celebrate his 40th birthday. The comfort and luxury of The Old Mill were beyond expectations - it has to be seen to appreciate the attention given to detail.
The owners, Sandra and Gary, offer an extra feature being Private Dining. This was booked for the birthday evening celebration and the quality and presentation of which were second to none.
A memorable week's holiday for each member of the family, all of whom didn't want to leave and can't wait for a return visit.

“Spectacular in the photos, better in real life!!!!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This property was an ideal choice for our family holiday. Having booked this as long weekend for our family ranging with ages from 2-76 the photos looked as though this property would cater for all of our needs and wow did it deliver! Sandra and Gary were there to meet us at their stunning home and made us feel extremely welcome as soon as we arrived! We took advantage of the offer for Gary to cook dinner for us on the Saturday evening which was served in their breathtaking dining room at the base of the tower. My daughter arranged a Murder Mystery evening and Gary and his waiter were extremely accommodating and added to a fabulous evening with an exquisite dinner. A massive thank you to both Sandra and Gary for the use unique property and their excellent hospitality, would strongly recommend for any occasion.

“Fantastic weekend Away”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We spent the weekend here as a celbration with friends, family and children of a number of ages (4-15). There were 17 of us all together and although were were over the number of beds Sandra had been really good and supplied us with a small matress for one of the children and there was addtional bed in the twin room. The house is amazing and we all spent the first half an hour exploring (which the kids loved). The games room is a great assest and the fact there is also footballs, badminton, tennis and then the swimming pool.

We stayed friday until Monday and there was so much for us to do without even having to leave the house.

We arranged for Gary to provide the private dining on the Saturday night and the food and service were excellent. The Prawn Cocktail was amazing (especially the extra grilled prawns on a cocktail stick).

We had a really diverse group of people that all enjoy different things but this house worked for all of us - for those that wanted to relax, play or explore surrounding areas.

We all agreed we would go back here again.
