“Weekend Break”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A surprise weekend break with my partner. Booked a few months prior as a relaxing break to de-stress and with no driving.
Location
------------
Great location, lovely village, local amenities within walking reach. The Boat House, The Plough, Gongoozlers (breakfast) all experienced as well as a long walk along the canal tow path. Centrally located but didn't drive anywhere.

The best bits
------------------
The cottage in very well specified, clean, modern and very tasteful. Love the decor. Thoughtfully, milk, bread, eggs, tea bags, biscuits and butter were in the kitchen which was well received. Wifi throughout the house and reachable in the garden. Hot tub was outstanding, simple to operate and blissful. Relaxing seating, tv coming up out of the bed and all mod cons. Loved it.

If I was being picky
-------------------------
Im used to an orthopaedic bed but this was a very soft mattress and by night 3 was playing havoc with my back. Personal I know but just a point. Lounge tv was free sat but could get but a few channels, might be my misuse but Im no technophobe. Got everything else working fine. Toilet is down very creaky stairs by the front door. Trouble free during the day but in the middle of the night, one up, all up. Shower is electric and is begging for a power shower. Outdoor table and chairs but a couple of loungers would have done a treat.

Summary
-------------
Very relaxing and needed weekend. Lovely place and facilities but a few small changes would have made it perfect, but then, what in life is?

Thank you for leaving your review.
We are sorry we did not see you as you left earlier than you stated.
Mill Cottage is a grade 2 listed building so we are sorry the stairs creaked. Older properties do have little annoyances to some. We do notify of this within our adverts and terms.
There is Freesat in both the bedroom and downstairs lounge along with Apple TV. If you had an issue with using the systems provided a call would have brought us down to assist.
The shower is a modern electric shower and has recently been refitted. Again due to the nature and age of the building we cannot guarantee the same level of pressure as in modern builds. However we can offer great character.
There are two sun lounger chairs in the hot tub area for your exclusive use which you could have used. Such a shame you did not use as you had such lovely weather.
The tv bed is another recent edition with a medium - firm mattress which the majority of our guests find gives an excellent nights sleep. If you had mentioned before booking you required an orthopaedic mattress due to your condition we could have advised you of the type of mattress. We do not fit very firm mattress as these can be very uncomfortable to many guests.
After all though it sounds as you had a great time!

“Amazing place to stay. dont think twice!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed here for my Girlfriends birthday. She loved it and so did I. The cottage is nice and secluded with a big garden for BBQ's etc. The hot tub is nice although you have to pay for up to three uses, we didn't mind this though as it was used purely by us.

The location is great if you want a romantic trip away, lovely country pubs and near the canals. Would highly recommend to anyone and would definitely return.

“Luxurious retreat just for couples”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The most beautiful village setting for such a quaint little cottage. Had everything we could've wanted & needed to make this a lovely relaxing weekend stay. Being next to the church was a delight in listening to the bells chime on the hour and in full tune on Sunday morning. The local amenities were within walking distance, so on arriving Friday we parked the car on the drive Friday and didn't use it at all during our stay until leaving Sunday. This really was a chance to chill and rest and no need to leave the area. We ordered take out Friday evening which is conveniently delivered. On Saturday morning we walked down to the canal to have a full English breakfast on 'Gongoozerlers' as recommended by the proprietors. Then in the evening after having spent the day walking the canal and stopping to watch the slow pace of life the Narrow Boaters have, we jumped in the Hot Tub to sooth our aching feet & bones. ( This was the first reason for booking Mill Cottage, second was the canal!) Once refreshed we headed down to the walkable Fish & Chip shop to grab some dinner then headed back off to the canal to sit along side and eat alfresco with a couple of beers! Very very very much recommend Mill Cottage for a chilled NO car relaxing break. Will deffo be staying again as we didn't get to use the Round Bath, because we spent most of our time sat by the canal.
Thank you Sandie & Simon for sharing your wonderful cottage!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

What can I say........this place is perfect! Everything we imagined and so much more. After a stressful year we decided to book up the cottage for Christmas. We were really unsure as we had never done anything like this before especially at Christmas. We we're met by Simon when we got there and he gave us the low down. Told us all the places to go and see, pubs etc. We didnt actually leave the cottage much other than a couple of walks (beautiful surroundings for walks).

We were cooking a Christmas dinner and were worried we'd need something that wasn't there but the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. We were greeted with wine, milk, bread, eggs, butter, biscuits, bubble bath.......the essentials ;)

We had a Christmas Tree and decs, which got us in the mood as we didn't have much Christmas spirit beforehand.

The hot tub! Wow, we loved it! And the bath, oh the bath!! These really were the cherry on top.

The bed with the television in was my partners idea of heaven! Not so sure myself, as I now have to invest in one :-s

The sofa was sooooo comfy and television had lots of movies (Netflix). We found the board games too, can't beat a bit of Monopoly and Scrabble!!

The only tiny downsides we had were that the wi-fi from the mill didn't work and also the squirrels on the roof could be noisy in the mornings, but we quite liked listening to them scurrying around :)

Overall, this place is fabulous and worth every penny. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway then this is the place for you!!

“Brilliant, once again”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our second stay at Mill Cottage, as good as the first. Certainly the place to relax and de-stress. Friendly and attentive owners.
Excellantly equipped, everything there for you, Chocolates and Wine on arrival.
Love the Hot tub..... the comment in the last review about being within sight of the actual Mill, was not a problem, as the glass windows in our hot tub cabin soon steamed up !!!!!
The only thing that would inprove it is a slightly bigger shower room, but thats not a big issue.
Cannot wait to go again.
