Richard was very helpful and advised us of some lovely local walks. The Mill itself is beautiful and had everything you could need. The bath is amazing and very relaxing! Loved the fabulous fire place. Views are amazing and we were blessed with fabulous weather. The only downside was going home! Looking to book the Dibbles (cottage on site) for next year.
