Robert is a talented architect who has restored this 15th-century mill – one of three in the area mentioned in the Domesday book – into a great place for a big group with dining table for up to 12, a large sitting room and games room with a pool table. Take the cottage next door too for groups of up to 12.
Find a welcome hamper with local goodies and plenty of logs for the wood-burner; Robert will make dogs very welcome too. A river runs through the garden, and there are no neighbours close by – just lovely countryside all around with plenty of walks.
Stroll to The Duke at Clifton, 400 yards away, for pub fare next to the fire; pretty ironstone-built Deddington is 1.5 miles away, Oxford 21 miles.
