When we arrived we were not disappointed, the decor and the views were absolutely beautiful and we were welcomed by a friendly face who was more then happy to help with any questions we had. My only regret is that we did not stay in the other cottage which is owned my Richard and his family, which is a 1 minute walk from where we stayed. I have told friends and family about this beautiful Mill house and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet weekend away in a beautiful place.

Not that we have anywhere to put it. Perfectly formed and beautifully furnished it had everything we needed for a romantic break. The village is lovely and the garden is charming. Leonie and Rob made us feel very welcome. We can't wait to return! Couldn't recommend highly enough :)
