Mill Cottage


… great for wildlife and bird watching on the river

Mill Cottage by the stream

Light and sunny Mill Cottage, a former granary next to the brook, sleeps 2-6 or 5 plus cot.

A blend of old and new with exposed beams and a log-burner yet a comfy, modern style. Enjoy outstanding views downstream of the old stone bridge along the garden & valley from the upstairs open-plan living space. It’s a topsy-turvy cottage with bedrooms on the ground floor. The double bedroom has the stream flwoing belwo the bedroom window.

It’s great for nature lovers and just perfect for wildlife and bird watching on the river. Enjoy alfresco dining on the patio by a potted herb & flower garden with a picnic table. Wildflowers cover the river wall which is a favourite nesting place for our ducks. Or a few steps away are the shared lawns, stream and firepit with further seating.

There is a spacious, modern open-plan sitting room with a wood burner, exposed  beams, a sofa and relaxing easy chairs.

The kitchen leads on from the dining area, and has an electric double oven, large fridge-freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle and its own washing machine.

The double bedroom opens above the Gara brook so you hear its soothing burbling from your bed. There’s one twin room which can be a single with or without cot, just let us know what suits you best. The third bedroom is a bunk bed-room with two-foot six bunk beds for kids or young teenagers.

The bathroom has a corner bath with shower over, a loo and handbasin, and next door a further separate loo.
