Millers End (sleeps 2 only) is all on the ground floor and was originally part of the Millers cottage It has an abundance of old worlde charm,  lots of lovely oak beans throughout and a cosy atmosphere. It offers one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom ( shower over the bath)  The good sized sitting room is nicely furnished with sofa and armchairs, coffee table, large Television with DVD, CD/Radio player and a large fireplace with log burning stove (electric) The kitchen  has an electric stove, fridge/freezer and microwave and all the usual and necessary equipment  All linen and hot water requirements are included in the rental other electrics are by £1.00 coin meter

Outside there is a large garden to enjoy with natural water features and an abundance of wildlife, kingfishers, erets and moorhens are frequent visitors come and watch the dragonflies dancing round the pond on a summers evening while enjoying a glass of your favourite tipple, There is plenty of seating area placed all round the garden so just follow the sun  A BBQ is available for alfresco dinning   Private fishing available on site Also plenty of off street parking on our private carpark opposite the Mill
