Being new to Trip Advisor this year, you will find reviews on our other site Homeaway. Beautiful historic 12th century fortified watermill, set on its own private island with 4 others belonging to it. 3ha total. The largest island, accessed easily by bridges, houses lots of little paths that meander around; a large pool (13m x7m including steps); large grass play area with a tennis net & football goal ; a small hard short tennis area poolside; table tennis; 2 canoes; 1 kayak; 1 fishing boat; fishing rod; 6-7 man hot tub etc. Beautiful property, very private grounds. There are sounds of the 2 waterfalls there - from a large, suspended cantilevered balcony over the river with another waterfall over the little canal that passes through the property.

Beautiful historic 12th century fortified watermill, set on its own private island with 4 others belonging to it. 3ha total. The largest island, accessed easily by bridges, houses lots of little paths that meander around; a large pool (13m x7m including steps); large grass play area with a tennis net & football goal ; a small hard short tennis area poolside; table tennis; 2 canoes; 1 kayak; 1 fishing boat; fishing rod; 6-7 man hot tub etc. Beautiful property, very private grounds. There are sounds of the 2 waterfalls there - from a large, suspended cantilevered balcony over the river with another waterfall over the little canal that passes through the property. The river runs under the house in 3 places in an authentic, original ground floor. Living accommodation is on the first floor only, accessed by a very modern floating staircase. 4 double bedrooms, 1 en-suite with jacuzzi bath & 1 wetroom. Whilst marvellous for children there, it is not recommended for under 5's. Lifejackets are provided for the boat & canoes. It is a paradise for wild life, with herons; kingfishers; ducks; cormorants; fish; red squirrels; coypu etc in abundance. You may indeed be wolf whistled at by the beautifully coloured golden orioles ( rare in the UK) that nest in the canopy on the largest island each year. It is a location to be truly enjoyed, to rest & re-charge your batteries or to have as energetic holiday as you wish, with something for everyone. The first floor only accommodation unfortunately makes it unsuitable for the physically challenged. Strictly Saturday changeovers. Whilst accepting smokers, it would be appreciated if this were done outside the house only, please.More

The watermill was everything we could have hoped for and more. When looking at photos of a place you are never quite sure if it will live up to the expectations you make for it, and this did and some!! All our communication with Rita...More

I am thrilled you loved the watermill as much as I do! It’s a very special place. And fancy your spotting the 7 foot dogfish, as the next guests did, too! An unbelievably sized fish- I shall look out for it myself in the winter...More
