10 / 10 Trish & Les from Trowbridge 15 March, 2018

What a lovely place, the grounds were fabulous, with a stream and a river. It was a peaceful setting, and sitting in the garden with a cup of tea listening to the water running an the birds singing was very relaxing. We were made so welcome by Jason and Marie-Laure with fresh flowers fruit and a welcome pack with a much needed bottle of wine.

The restorationof this mill has been done really well and parts of the old workings are all around. Would we go back most definitely and we were there in a nippy March, I can only imagine how much better it would be in the summer.
