This was a fairy-tale wedding location. The bridal suite was awesome with four poster bed, bubbly and chocolates waiting for us. Jamie, our wedding coordinator, thought of every detail to make the day go really smoothly. Absolutely perfect venue.

We stayed 2 nights in a double room towards the rear of the hotel overlooking fields. The room was a little on the small side but no less comfortable...

We chose the Mill for our wedding as we viewed the venue on a very wet and windy day last year and even though most sensible people were indoors keeping warm and dry, the staff opened everything up for us to view and couldn't have been more helpful. I wanted a relaxed feel to the day and for everything to...
