Jo and Barry, attending a couple retreat in February 2018, said : Feeling so positive and confident that what we have learnt from David will change our lives and marriage for the future. An experience I would highly recommend. Wonderful venue. Cathy is a superb host.
A private BnB guest, Naomi, in May 2017, said : The Mill really is on par with high end BnBs. Everything about our stay was perfect, from the idyllic gardens and walks nearby to the incredibly comfortable and pretty bedrooms upstairs. The breakfast and sitting room is a relaxing space with delicious and varied breakfast in the mornings. Catherine was a charming hostess and had great local advice. We are definitely planning on returning again!
