Water Mill

Child friendly holiday farm cottage – sleeps 7

Sorry, this calendar requires javascript in order to work.

If you like a character cottage that oozes charm, nostalgia and romance this is the holiday farm cottage for you. Converted from the original 16th Century Water Mill, from where it takes it's name, there are interesting knooks and crannies now transformed into shelves in the  exposed stonework and even the evidence of where the old mill stone once rested. If houses could talk this old building would keep you entertained with its life history for hours. However the history and period features are blended with the best of modern living to give you a holiday farm cottage that is spacious, welcoming, light and airy. This is achieved with windows throughout including sky windows in the open plan living dining room leading up to the minstral gallery. Make the most of the coolness of the thick granite walls in summer or light the powerful log burner for a cozy winter's evening and sink into the sumptuous leather sofas.

The kitchen had a full refit in 2016  with every moden appliance. Whether you are cooking a roast or heating a pizza you'll find everything you need.   The double sink enjoys stunning views through the extensive bay window over the private garden, Coombe Lane and Coombe Mill Miniature railway line and gardens beyond.  With two double bedrooms, one downstairs, the layout of this holiday farmhouse is perfect for bringing the grandparents or for two small families to share. A triple bedroom invites holiday fun for little ones together but be aware that due to the quirky shape of the rooms and low ceilings there is only a bath in the upstairs family bathroom and a shower in the downstairs ensuite.
