Just wanted to let you know what amazing time we had at the Mill. The Mill itself is absolutely stunning and is done out so beautiful. The weather was perfect and we spend alot of time sunning by the pool! Bake off and afternoon was brilliant, Thank you so much for lending us your tea set and cake stands. Its all looked so lovely.
The mill surpassed everything we imagined - the photos really don't do it justice! 13 of us stayed there for the weekend and there wasn't one of us who could resist running around like a kid when we first got there to explore all the quirky features.
Roaring fires, squishy sofas, stunning interior, comfy beds..
Perfect for a weekend with (close) friends or family and would make a great retreat for a week with the pool and garden.
Without question the best S/C place we've ever stayed...can't recommend it highly enough.
Stayed at the old mill for a midweek break for my husbands surprise 30th.....it did not disappoint!
From the moment we arrived we were in awe of the beautiful refurb of such an old building. Each and every room had been finished to a very high standard. Our party was only 7 so we had pick of the lot and it meant if we wanted some alone time it wasn't hard to find with tons of bedrooms and snugs to choose from!
Fantastic venue for any occasion but suited my husbands 30th to perfection. Plenty to keep us busy by day with the pool, large garden for badminton, a little football and even th games room. We were quite fortunate with the weather but even if it had been raining we would have made good use of the pool as it was heated throughout our stay.
The surrounding area was also beautiful and lots to do. We ventured out to the extreeme adventure, very similar to go ape. Fantastic day out which built up an appetite for a very tasty and reasonable lunch in the nearby bedingfield arms pub. Very friendly landlady and team at the extreeme adventure- can definitely recommend both of these!
You really could spend all your time at the house though with so much to do and feeling so relaxing also. Sandra was very prompt and accommodating from my very first enquiry and I really cannot recommend her and her beautiful old mill enough!
Cannot wait for our next excuse to visit!
Myself and nine friends recently spent three nights at The Old Mill to celebrate my 30th birthday and had the most wonderful time in this amazing property which exceeded all our expectations- the pictures do not do it justice! Sandra and Gary were the amazing hosts I have come across from the ease of the pre-arrival administration, to the warm welcome and the truly delicious dinner that was catered for us on the Saturday night which added a really special touch to the whole weekend. Sandra and Gary went the extra mile to make sure it was a weekend to remember. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking for our large number with the whole house finished to a very high spec. We were at The Old Mill in the slightly cooler months but were never chilly once over the weekend. I can’t recommend this property enough (as well as the local pub, The Beddingfield Arms, in the village near by). We are already discussing our next trip to the Old Mill.
Thank you Sandra and Gary for making it such a memorable way to turn 30.
First and foremost, the pictures of the mill understate it's beauty and elegance. I booked the property for a week in September to celebrate my 50th birthday. Each and every guest was in awe of my chosen venue, spectacular, beautiful, fabulous, awesome, quirky some of the adjectives expressed as they toured this wonderful property. The Mill far exceeded my expectations and wowed my guests who are world travellers used to 5* accommodations. Large open space inside and out for general mingling and dining, nooks and crannies for those needing quiet time. Beautifully presented, well equipped, pristine , yet warm and cosy, I felt immediately at home as I awaited the arrival of my guests .
Sandra and Gary (the owners) went above and beyond to ensure the week and particularly the black-tie dinner on Saturday night ( which was catered in-house ) was a phenomenal success. The food and service provided was on par with the best on offer in London. No request on my part, considered too great. A warm welcome from both and an open door policy ensured that we were happy and all went well throughout the week (including recommendations for local hairdressers and nail salons for the ladies in our group in advance of the dinner )
The success of this long anticipated celebration was due in no small part to their attention to detail, enthusiasm, and desire to ensure it was memorable for me, my family and friends.
Thank you both from the bottom of my heart for making it so.
The Mill was a great choice for a weekend away. It was tastefully decorated and incredibly clean. Sandra and Gary did the catering for a dinner we had one night. Both the food and the service was impeccable. The food could have been served in any 5 or 7 star restaurant. It looked both beautiful and tasted out if this world.
A truly unusual property, which lived up to it's description. A five night stay to celebrate our Ruby Wedding with our children and grandchildren, both 8 months old, was everything we wanted it to be. The Mill exudes a homely, boutique hotel type atmosphere, with spacious accommodation and the bonus of a heated swimming pool, which was most enjoyable. Crisp white linen on the comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, everything we needed was on hand. Also a games room with table tennis and snooker, which went down very well with the guys! The Old Mill is situated in a very beautiful, unspoilt part of England, within easy reach of the coast. The owners were a lovely couple and very helpful; on hand if we needed them. We all had an amazing time and will certainly be visiting the Old Mill again next year!
