    Mill house accommodated a party of 12 plus 2 dogs and including very young children for whom the enclosed garden was wonderful. The house is very comfortable, situated ina village with many amenities and close to stunning walks as well as the coast The owners were extremely amenable and responded promptly to any question we may have had Highly recommended

    Spent a 60th birthday here with family 7 adults, 3 small children and a dog.. plenty of space inside and outside. Lovely quiet village with pub, restaurant, local shops ...Plenty of things to explore locally. We had a super time and the weather was kind to us.

    The Mill house was lovely, the bed rooms were clean and comfortable. i was going to write to compain about the kitchen, but now have an opportunity to do so here. on arrival i found defrosted chips in one fridge, dead flower on th table. the utensil, pans etc were not organised in the cupboards. I found 2 pans that were not clean, the bottoms covered with dried old food. i found this totally unacceptable. in summery, it was the kitchen that let this weekend away a let down. i do hope this is taken as constructive critisism
