Richard is a very good, attentive host but only when you need him. The rest of the time he blends into the background, working on the farm. The Mill has been very tastefully restored with very good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely comfy bed, which to me, with arthritis in my spine, is very important. Loved the log burner, lit it twice, took me back to my childhood. As someone else has said, the roads are a bit tricky in places, a lot of single track, twisty roads. Can thoroughly recommend the Mill and the owners.

It is equipped such that it's easy to self-cater but also very conveniently located close to a pub/restaurant and the town centre where there are plenty of places to eat. The property is set back from the road so noise is minimal. Would happily book it again.
