The Mill House is just a mile from the historic town of Bampton, which makes it a gentle half hour walk or less than 5 minutes by car. Bampton is a small town but has a surprising range of local amenities including pubs, restaurants, tea rooms, late-opening supermarket, post office, butcher, greengrocer, chemist, and a range of other shops.
Bampton has quite a history from the Romans to its early Saxon origins, the Norman castle, the wool and pony trade, the 12th century church, the quarrying of the local stone; now it is a thriving centre used by locals and visitors alike. This small and vibrant town is located in mid-Devon; nearby Exmoor National Park, Wimbleball Lake and the Grand Western Canal Country Park provide wonderful opportunities walks, cycle rides and activities.
The annual Bampton Fair was established by Royal Charter in 1258 and is held every year on the last Thursday in October. This is a popular event, with traditional funfair and a street market selling novelties and local produce. Bampton is also famous for its floral displays, having won the national Britain in Bloom competition several time in recent years. The town no longer enters the competition but still looks beautiful throughout the year.
Bed linen and towels are provided. Heating and electricity is included. One basket of logs will be provided for the wood-burner in autumn and winter, additional logs can be purchased locally.
