Fields of sheep and a rushing river surround this peaceful converted mill. You have your own wing with sitting room, separate entrance and garden so you’ll feel nicely private.
Your hosts’ passion for living off the land is inspiring – meet their rare breeds of sheep, pigs and hens whose meat and eggs will end up on your plate, along with fruit and veg from the kitchen garden. Peacocks wander and the dogs, Golden Guernsey goats and geese are all part of life on this working smallholding – and you can sign up for craft and farm courses or a rejuvenating ‘solo retreat’.
You’re very well looked after: tea and cake in the conservatory, tasty breakfasts, a lunch platter if you don’t want to go out, or a packed lunch for day trips, and seasonal dinner with a bit of notice. It’s a two-mile wander to the pub.
