We stayed here recently with our children can’t praise it enough
Was everything I wanted it to be and more, we loved everything about Braunston from the mill where we stayed which is fantastic to the village and the people who live there.
We will definitely be returning in the future
Finally a word about sandie the owner lovely lady who helped make my sons birthday special by organising balloons to be there upon our arrival
Special place special holiday loved it
The mill was lovely place and the owners have spent a lot of money making it look nice, the beds were comfortable and they were clean.
The stairs take your breath away if your unfit but there are lovely views once you get up there.
There is lovely local pub which serves a really good Sunday lunch and the staff are friendly.
But the jet spa bath couldn’t be used properly as the water wasn’t hot enough to fill the bath and enjoy, and when jets were pressed a lot of black came from the jets, so it needs cleaning.
The owners have the water set on timer and you are asked not to touch this.
There are rule books and you feel like you dare not touch anything. No flexibility for late check out, it’s a complete no.
The washer/dryer was out of order and only one large towel was left for each of the six guests.
There was no free white wine left as promised.
The hot tub was warm but wouldnt turn on, We were very disappointed about this as that was our whole point of booking this property.
We did enjoy our stay, but it wasn’t 100% perfect because of the above issues.
Wow wow wow! what an amazing holiday stay :)
people often say "it was like a home from home" When I go away I don't want it to be like my home (or I'd stay there :)) and The Mill sure is spectacular!
Amazing unique property with superb facilities, finished to a high spec and the views ... stunning!
Highlights:seating area downstairs ideal for reading
beautiful and well equipped kitchen/diner on 1st floor
Stunning lounge with HUGE plasma TV
Bedrooms are stylish, comfortable and well equipped
idyllic bathroom with rainfall shower and spa bath
Hot tub .... we didn't use but looked brilliant.
And the village of Braunston is superb in itself and only a stone's throw from Leamington Spa and many other cities.
We enjoyed canal walks, the local shop and a cosy afternoon in the Plough.
Sandie is attentive but unobtrusive. Can't recommend this property highly enough and at a great price too :)
Having recently returned from 4 wonderful days at the mill I thought it right to share my thoughts
Totally mind blowing place
Very well decorated to a high standard
Would recommend to anyone needing a treat
Me and my partner thought it was very beautiful place,relaxed and peaceful
Everything you may need during your stay is there full you to use
Lovely area with very friendly local people
Great local pubs with very nice food to enjoy
My girlfriend and I booked the Mill for 3 nights Friday to Monday, as somewhere different to stay. The Mill is beautifully equipped and the perfect getaway to spend a romantic break - it's far too nice to just use as a base to explore the surrounding areas.
We arrived in Braunston very early on the Friday and had a lovely lunch at the Old Plough prior to checking in. As a couple we found out that the £100 discount is for use of one bedroom only, and as much as the four poster room at the very top of the Mill was perfect, I think next time we would choose the bigger room on the floor below - just because of the stairs!! :)
The first full day we visited Warick which was half an hour away, and returned to the Mill and ordered a takeaway from the Chinese recommended by the owners. A lovely evening was spent in the main, huge living room.
On our final full day, we tried the Gongoozlers barge for breakfast which again is recommended, and was entirely different to anything we've been to. Eating breakfast whilst watching swans and ducks swim up to the glass right next to you was lovely. In the evening we took advantage of the amazing kitchen and dining area, which was beautifully laid our for our arrival.
The outside hot-tub was perfect to unwind in also.
We only had to speak to the owners on arrival and departure but did feel if we needed anything they were only a phone call away.
We couldn't find a single thing to be even remotely critical of. Any negative reviews I had read on here beforehand, about signs or rules or whatnot, are completely unwarranted. The place was perfect and we both thoroughly enjoyed spending time here.
We would love to come back again, but not without trying the cottage next door first!
