“Brilliant Birthday Weekend”

The weather was awful!
The house was secluded, warm and welcoming with plenty of room for everyone. The facilities were great, the kitchen well equipped, games and jigsaws to suit all ages and the table tennis tournament embraced by all.
A 'Richmod' quiz/treasure hunt for Saturday ensured everyone had some fresh air in the torrential rain.
The whole family enjoyed every minute and we have booked again for a Summer visit.

“A Great Weekend in a Lovely Mill Complex - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We hired this property for a church men's weekend with 12 of us across a wide age range staying there. All thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a great time sat round the large meal table (which takes 12, you would need other tables for more people), relaxing in the lounge with the log burner where we also had our meetings and chilled after walking/exploring the area. We also hired the meeting room but decided in the end to use the lounge instead as it was large enough and so comfortable. We would definitely recommend this for our sized group and I am sure will hire it again. The owners/housekeeper were very helpful with our initial queries and did everything possible to make our stay a great success. Many thanks from Norton Baptist Church in Stockton-on-Tees.

“a beautiful place to stay”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the old mill for a weekend, but could happily have stayed longer. 8 of us celebrated a 40th birthday here. we wanted somewhere clean, easy to find, private and comfortable.we weren't disappointed at all. The housekeeper that greeted us was really friendly,and explained everything we needed to know. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. As others have said, I don't think the photos do it justice. It's a beautiful place to stay and well equipped. Looking out into the countryside, it's hard to believe it's so close to scotch corner. From someone with a shocking sense of direction, this was so easy to find!! A definite bonus!! The only negatives I could find probably won't bother most people,and this is just a personal thing, but as an arachnophobic, I really didn't welcome the large houseguests!! Also, at first,we were shocked to find no tv!!!! But,in all honesty, we didn't miss it one bit!! One of the best things for me, was the freestanding bath!! I prefer showers, but this bath was too amazing to ignore!! As I said, 8 of us stayed, and all 8 of us said we would use it again. Friendly communication, welcoming housekeeper,very reasonable prices and lovely accommodation......what's not to love????!!!!

“Beautiful house and surroundings”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We visited The Old Mill for a family get together for my Dad's 70th Birthday.
The location of the house is simply beautiful.
There is ample parking- we parked 5 cars very easily.
Once inside we were truly taken aback- the photo's don't do it justice.
The house is bright, spacious and very clean.
We were a party of 16 and never did it feel anywhere near cramped.
The bedrooms were all lovely and keen, all with nice comfortable beds.
Bathroom facilities are fab, with 2 bathrooms and an extra wc plus an extra shower room in the quiet room (this became the wifi room as it was where the strongest signal was)
The kitchen is fantastically equiped with everything you can possibly need and more.
I would highly recommend The Old Mill- I didn't want to leave!
Genuinley can not think of a negative.
The lovely lady, Barbara, who we booked through is very helpful and efficient and the housekeeper, Christine, was very accomodating as we kept altering our arrival time due to traffic.
We will certainly use The Old Mill again.

“Perfect setting for our weekend retreat”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

This was our second weekend retreat at The Old Mill, and it felt as if we were coming home. The lovely lounge is so welcoming and of a good large size, but feels cosy with the large wood burning stove, needed for chilly June evenings! Lashings of hot water, and a local housekeeper to call on should we need anything put our minds at rest,

The whole house has a lovely atmosphere, is tastefully decorated, comfortable and well equipped, as we were self catering. The grounds provide plenty of space for walking and overlook open countryside, with a small river running on the property's boundary.

This is a beautiful venue, suitable for many types and holidays, retreats, and family reunions, etc. We are booked again!
