“Beautiful peaceful location, nice property with good facilities.”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This is a lovely quiet place with just the sound of birdsong all around. The kids loved the indoor pool and walled garden. Cottage was well equipped and clean. Great holiday.

“Nice homely place to relax in”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The property gives the impression that you are staying in somebody's house and not a sterilized accomodation. There are a number of home comforts that you would not get in a multi national place . We had some wet weather whilst we were there, but when the sun came out the front garden was perfect. In our party there were three children, 10, 9 and 7. All three were happy playing with the games that were supplied and loved exploring the grounds which we felt were great and safe. The pool is very nice as well. (I think we were lucky as there was no one else using it when we were). The outdoor pool looks stunning and we are contemplating booking again in the summer so that we can use it. The only down side we found was that when we got here it was dark and the walk from the car to the house was up a very dark lane that had steps and a low arched walll to walk through.

Thank-you so much for your review Julie. So glad that you had a great holiday at Mill Cottage. I'm sorry the lighting by the pathway up to the cottage was not working during your stay. The estates maintenance team have fixed it.
