English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


This is a truly unique property which has been restored with careful attention to detail and comfort. Discover the delights of Derbyshire then return to your very own private hot tub.

Brimming with character and charm, the Water Mill has been lovingly restored and combines luxury fittings with many of the original historic features. Corn has been milled here since the 1500s on the Brookside site, and the present mill buildings date from the 1700s. The original fittings and equipment remain untouched when milling ceased in the early 20th century.
Ancient stonework, oak beams and centuries old millstones and equipment have been thoughtfully incorporated to create an unforgettable interior for this detached Grade II listed building, one of Derbyshire’s oldest surviving water mill. You will see inside the property original sections of the wooden mill machinery which have been restored to give a fabulous feeling of the building’s history. Outside, the original wood and iron waterwheels have been restored and are turned from time to time, fed from the waters of the restored mill pond.
Just half a mile from Bradbourne and 5 miles from Ashbourne, the property is surrounded by some of Derbyshire’s prettiest scenery. The Tissington Trail offers good walking and cycling opportunities, and the village of Tissington itself is a real step back in time, complete with Tisssington Hall. You will be totally spoilt for walks from the doorstep of this stunning property with Dovedale just a short drive away, not to mention the wealth of market towns, pretty villages, historic houses such as Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House and Gardens, all within easy reach.
In such a stunning location, this unique, converted water mill is a truly wonderful base for discovering the delights that the Peak District has to offer. So after a busy day exploring, what more could you ask for than to kick off your shoes and relax in your very own bubbling hot tub! Horse riding available nearby. Shop 5 miles, pub serving food 2 miles.

    The cottage was absolutely beautiful and we had such a fantastic time. Would thoroughly recommend it and would definitely go again.

    Lovely property but probably wouldn't stay again with the lack of outdoor space. Also found the lay out of the property and lack of main bathroom an issue.

    Amazing building, cleverly adapted into a comfortable holiday home with plenty of unique features. Would love to see the wheels turning one day. Very little private outdoor space not a problem with the ford over the road for kids to play in and plenty of rooms indoors for everyone to do different things. No phone line or mobile connectivity for miles around made arrangements tricky, do your research before you go and firm up arrangements where/when to meet people well in advance! Take all consumables with you, loo rolls lasted out but 1 dishwasher tablet a day wasn't enough for 14 of us and no tea bags/sugar, soap or household cleaning materials were provided. Glad previous guests warned about road noise, made for very disturbed sleep from the early hours. To be expected in a heavy industry area, traffic through local towns always clogged up with trucks too, allow extra travel time. Excellent location for exploring the local area.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feed back regarding our property, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We are pleased to advise that we have now installed wifi to The Water Mill which will assist with our guests sourcing information and enable them to make wifi calls if their own devices permit this. With regards to the consumables, we leave a small amount of cleaning items and loos rolls etc., these are meant as a complementary which enables guests to get started however as it is self catering and party sizes differ we would always recommend you bringing additional items. We do not currently offer welcome packs, however if this is something that is of interest to our guests we would ask that they contact us prior to arrival so that we can discuss their bespoke requirements. In respect of road noise, an amount may be apparent during the week, however these B roads are in little use at the weekends, we are situated in the Derbyshire Dales and not a heavy industry area. Unfortunately this weekend in particular the surrounding villages were subject to some major road diversions from a local music festival that had to be closed due to bad weather thus the unusual additional traffic. I hope that this didn’t cause you too much inconvenience by disrupting a normally peaceful area.
