About this listing

The mill offers you a different type of holiday surrounded by boats and beautiful scenery, an ideal place for a quiet getaway. The building reflects both, its industrial heritage and the surrounding area and combines it with a modern design style. Please note we can accommodate one night stays from November till February and there are discounts for one week stays or longer stays subject to availability. Please enquire.

The space

Please note if this room is booked up we also have another room listed on Air BnB (Cosy room in 16th century tidal mill).
The loft room is spacious and light and has two roof lights overlooking Millbrook on one side and the estuary and woodlands on the other. The room has a king size bed and ample clothes storage. We provide a small fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. There is a sofa bed which can accommodate another person or a child and there is space for a travel cot if you have a baby.
The bathroom is directly adjacent to your room and will only be used by you.
Breakfast is a help-yourself continental breakfast. We offer cereals, toast, honey and jam as well as yogurt and fruit, tea, herbal teas and coffee. We can cater for gluten free diet and vegetarians. Darren and I are both working full-time but you are welcome to sit and enjoy the views and have a leisurely breakfast in our kitchen in the mornings.

Guest access

You are welcome to use our garden. If required you can wash and dry clothes for a small charge. The dining table and kitchen area can be used in the mornings during breakfast, but in the afternoon and evenings it is private. There is free parking for two cars next to the building. The room is only accessible by two flights of stairs. We can also provide secure storage if you arrive by motorbike or bicycle.

Interaction with guests

This is our home so we will be around. Darren and I work full-time and are mostly out in the day but around in the evenings if you need any help with anything at all. We are happy to recommend the best places to visit in the area, there will be something for everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday.

Other things to note

Please bring slippers with a good grip sole as we have wooden floors and there is a shoes off policy in the house.

Accommodating and unfussy hosts who have made a very comfortable and immaculate home overlooking the water. Really nice rooms and sort-out-your-own breakfast with lovely food available. So nice to be in an old and stunningly restored building with beams and well placed windows.

We loved our stay. From the fact that we could come down to breakfast at any time in the morning, in our pj's if we wished, to the relaxed, thoughtful, friendly approach from our hosts and the beautiful surroundings . Darren and Alex were both lovely - they really have though of everthing. We were made to feel totally at home straight away. Their home is beautiful, light, airy, spacious & amazing but still manages to feel like a home. It is a no shoes house - but everyone is happy to accept that. We took our slippers. Our hosts were communicative & helpful without being overbearing. Alex's beautiful, creative breakfast table was so prettily presented & her home made bread delicious. Darren's cooking was awesome - he will happily make you an omelette or scrambled egg, cooked breakfasts if he's around. Otherwise - you just help yourself. Everything was available - cereals, fresh fruit, toast, yogurts. I felt very comfortable making my own scrambled eggs in their well equipped, open plan kitchen. The view from the breakfast table is hard to beat - and hard to remove yourself from!! We had a lovely, memorable stay. We will return! Lesley - travelled with my two daughters, aged 10 & 12.

Alex is originally from Germany and has been living in the UK for the last 20 years with intervals in Scotland, Italy and the Netherlands. She likes gardening, reading, her yoga class and spending time with friends as well as going camping in the van.
Darren is very knowledgeable about the area and has lived in Devon and Cornwall all his life so he will be able to tell you everything about places to go and things to do. He is a keen sailor and trail bike rider.
We spent the last five years restoring the mill; we are now hoping to share our love for the building with others.
