Mill Cottage


… great for wildlife and bird watching on the Gara Brook

Mill Cottage by the stream

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

A comfy blend of old and new with exposed beams and a log-burner yet a relaxed 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 flowing below the bedroom window – if you’re really lucky you might hear otters!

It’s great for nature lovers and just perfect for wildlife and bird watching on the river. Enjoy alfresco dining on the patio in the courtyard by a potted herb & flower garden with an solid oak picnic table. Wildflowers cover the river wall and there are planty herbs. A few steps away you have the shared lawns, stream and firepit with further seating.

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

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

Downstairs, the double bedroom opens above the Gara Brook so you fall asleep to its soothing sound. The  twin room can also 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-feet 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.
