Guest reviews

The conversion of the Mill and the extension is absolutely stunning. The furnishings were also beautiful. The natural light in the kitchen and upper living room was fantastic, even when it was overcast. We loved the rural location and having the ability to go for walks straight from the door. We didn’t spend a huge amount of time in the garden, but imagine it would be great in the summer time.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug.
