The cottage is beautiful and a very peaceful location. Very remote and have to drive quite a way to pubs/restaurants etc. The décor is also brand new so very modern and received gifts on arrival which was lovely. (milk/eggs/bread) However, If you are booking this on the basic that there is a 'hot tub' included, BEWARE...... The hot tub is a wood burner tub, not electric therefore we had to maintain the fire during our stay if we wanted to use it. This means, you have to stay in all day to heat the water and keep the fire going (stated when we arrived, takes up to 5 HOURS to heat the tub.) After maintaining the fire until late afternoon on the second day, we eventually gave up with the luke warm water, plus had little coal left (you have to BUY additional coal from the owners once you run out, seriously???) The living space is also very tiny, only fitting 2x very small two seater sofas. they are so uncomfortable and definitely not the place to 'relax' and watch a film. With the design they could have invested into a corner sofa meaning you can stretch out and even sit next to each other. Not even a foot stool? :( It was such a shame! Unfortunately on this basis I would not recommend this cottage to my family/friends. Sorry :(
Staying in this cottage is a must! Absolutely beautiful place to stay with incredible hot tub! Ignore the review saying it doesn't get hot....You light a fire and the water gets hotter the more wood you burn, simple! Thanks to Belinda and Mike for making us so welcome:-)
Set in a stunning location, Mill Cottage is a hidden gem. We have spent the week enjoying beautiful walks around Hanley Mill, visiting quaint little villages and making good use of the fantastic log fired hot tub! Mill cottage is extremely well presented, inside and out! Belinda and Mike are incredibly welcoming and helpful and have made our stay unforgettable, especially with all of the lovely newlywed touches! We can't wait to come back again soon and we will most defiantly be recommending it to our friends and family!
From the moment you view the Mill nestled in the valley you fall in love with the picturesque tranquility. The cottage is well equipped, very comfortable and well furnished. We loved our stay there and booked to return before we had left. The hot tub is great and the free- standing Victorian bath even better. We found the gentle sound of the waterfall outside our windows just charming. Mike and Belinda have created lovely, well-marked walks in the local woods. I definitely recommend this idyll to anyone seeking absolute peace and quiet. Bring good food ( there are few local shops) and good wine and enjoy.
This Mill is perfect for a romantic getaway. After staying in a caravan in Cornwall for the weekend cramped in with the family, we could not wait till we got to the mill and my god it didn't disappoint! As soon as you turn the corner and get first glance of the mill it looks just like a fairy tale absolutely stunning. The owners leave you some bread, milk etc. which was lovely. We cannot fault in the slightest, the walks are amazing (bring wellies it can get very muddy) the hot tub is delightful, I have to say though the bathroom was my fav part with the slipper bath just perfect. Everthing is done to amazing standards literally cannot fault. There is so much to do as you're not far from Worcester city centre you have the best of both worlds the city and the countryside definitely recommend Worcester cathedral, was amaing. Thank you for sharing this stunning place with us.
The last thing we wanted to do was go away for our 2 week honeymoon directly after the wedding. So instead we stayed 4 nights here to relax in late November. We brought our puppy along for 2 days. What a lovely place, we arrived in the dark a little late after a day’s rain to a warm hot tub (£8 fee for this) this place was just what we needed. The hot tub is manually stoked which although means you have to be around but this adds to the adventure. We enjoyed the fresh bread and fizz & Cake, the dog enjoyed the home made dog treats from the owners and they had gone the extra mile with a candle with wedding figures on the side of it. We hope to return in a year. If you book this place be prepared for no mobile phone signal (on 02 anyway) and slow internet (Not a problem) and unfortunately in our case not a stable internet connection but this would be my only area I would suggest for future improvement in what is a fantastic holiday cottage.
