Concealed by a thick blanket of award-winning woodland is this textbook country bolthole, where the birds chirrup, the river flows and the stars shine brightly. The guardians of your charming miller’s cottage are Sonia and Simon, who live in the nearby Millhouse.
It’s a place to step back and take stock: relax by the creamy Rayburn or doze off by the wonderful old fireplace with limitless logs. A pretty window seat upstairs overlooks the cottage garden – secluded and south-facing, a lovely spot for a summer barbecue.
Explore the valley by foot – Simon and Sonia’s enthusiasm for the area is infectious and they carefully manage the surrounding area. Bees, birds and bluebells are encouraged, and a small herd of beef cattle, pigs, ducks and hens merrily thrive.
