Our opinion

This mill, between river and race, has a great deal of style. Water magnifies the immediate surroundings where abundant vegetation has been tamed, creating a very pleasant setting. The inside is tasteful, warm, appealing and traditional in the best sense of the word. The detached caretaker’s cottage could be rented as seasonal accommodation.
