  • “We had a fantastic holiday at The Old Mill.”

    Beautiful cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need. The garden is stunning with lots of different areas to sit with the top section being ideal for the children to play football, cricket, badminton etc. The pool was just fantastic and very, very well used by us all. Definitely 5* from us and we would love to come again. Thank you
