"A peaceful riverside setting, surrounded by lush fields and meadows - the perfect antidote to everyday living"

Manor Mill nestles amongst the soft green hills of Somerset and occupies the south side of an enchanting wooded valley, beside the River Tone. This converted water mill and its neighbouring barns, which date back to the 17th century, have been sympathetically converted to provide charming, comfortable and well-appointed self-catering country cottages with picturesque views of the river. The extensive 3½-acre grounds surrounding the mill are a haven of fields, water meadows and delightfully cultivated gardens, with many beautiful and rare shrubs, and is a haven for wildlife of all kinds.
Each of the three charming holiday cottages is well-equipped including all linen and towels. Manor Mill has a secluded heated indoor swimming pool with an outside sun terrace and a stone barbecue, which offers the perfect way to spend a relaxing afternoon or evening - eating or drinking to the accompaniment of the rippling sound of the River Tone. The children’s play area is a retreat for fun, complete with swings, slides and a miniature fortress. A selection of videos, board games, books and magazines are also available to borrow. The extensive grounds and idyllic surroundings offer a wonderfully relaxing location and a delightful rural retreat.
Manor Mill, located on the Devon border, provides an excellent base for touring the West Country, with easy access to the Quantock Hills, the coast of south Devon and north Somerset and on the edge of the glorious wilderness of Exmoor. It offers a delightful and rural location and a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere - the perfect antidote to everyday living.
A private dining lodge, located in a secluded part of the grounds, is also available for hire. From private celebrations to weddings and children’s parties, the lodge can accommodate up to 20 guests. The resident owners can adapt food, drink and room dressing requirements as requested.
Personally attended by the owners who live within the grounds, all three cottages at Manor Mill are furnished and decorated to retain the original character of the mill. Shop 3 miles, pub 500 yards.

On the ground floor of this barn conversion, Bankside has a useful porch area leading from the riverbank.

    Lovely location. Swimming pool was great fun. Nice welcome pack included tea, coffee and milk Disappointed with the equipment provided. The oven doesn't work properly, took over an hour to make oven chips and they still weren't cooked. The frying pan was filthy and had no non-stick left on it. The sofas were well past their best with frayed arms covered with loose pieces of blue cloth and frayed around the bottom. Both looked in need of a good clean. A hotch potch of plates and bowls, some chipped, a few random glasses and an egg cup supplied. There was a horrible damp smell in the kitchen cupboard where the cutlery is stored. Also an obvious damp problem in the twin bedroom with black all along the bottom of the wall. When we booked we didn't realise that there would be people in the upstairs of the cottage. They had young children who constantly ran back and forth all the time they were indoors. There was continual noise above our heads until they finally went to bed.It felt like we were staying in a flat.

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your comments. Bankside has since been decorated and the damp areas as described have been dealt with. Furnishings are being upgraded with new sofas by Christmas. We take note of the comments relating to dirty utensils and our cleaners have been informed. The cooker was replaced earlier this year and is only 7 months old, but we will inspect its function.Regarding noise from above, we can only assume this was during the busy period of school holidays, children will be children.
