What a delight. Unfortunately, we arrived late in the evening and could not fully enjoy the great grounds, but did have a chance to look at them the next morning. As mentioned in previous reviews, Tim and Ruth are delightful and very interesting to talk to. They recommended two pubs for dinner, as it was late we chose the one... More

My wife and I stayed with Ruth and Tim at this quaint house in Axminister, a 5 minute stroll from the heart of the town. Not a lot in Axminister, save for a couple of friendly pubs and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Cafe and Deli - our real reason for visiting. Tim and Ruth are a delightful couple, very welcoming... More

We stayed at Mill Water House B&B for one night on our way to the South-West. Tim and Ruth were both very welcoming recommending a friendly local pub and restaurants in town. They also recommended visiting the nearby seaside village of Beer, which was beautiful. The room was immaculate, with a very comfortable bed and pretty bed linen. The breakfast... More

We stayed in May 2012 for two nights to attend a nearby wedding. I could not fault the location, the property, the price or the service at this B&B. The room was immaculate and everything had been considered. The breakfast was *amazing*, very fresh and even cooked to my incredibly specific requirements (I'm very celiac and become ill at the...

Beautiful B&B, lovely house and garden and a very friendly cat! Breakfast was amazing - all freshly made and a lot of it home made or home grown. Rooms were clean and well presented with everything we needed. Woken up by sounds of birdsong and the babbling brook - how idyllic! Good location for River Cottage, Axminster and Lyme Regis... More

We stayed at the mill water having booked dinner at river cottage h.q. As it was a bank holiday weekend, we were worried as most b&b's would only do a 2 night stay. The mill water allowed just the 1 night booking and were really helpful recommending paynes' taxis (who were reliable and reasonable). The rooms were lovely, extremely clean,... More

Wonderful B&B! A picturesque house back from the road. Immaculate bedroom and bathroom, and incredibly quiet inside. Really lovely hosts - very welcoming, and served a delicious breakfast. Perfect location for visiting River Cottage, as was the reason for our stay in Axminster. Would definitely recommend!

A wonderful B&B with clean comfortable rooms. You have a lot of privacy but always someone on hand if you require assistance. Breakfast is fantastic, try the home made muesli, it's amazing! I would recommend this B&B for anyone staying in Axminster.
