Impossible to praise too highly
Venue Service

By David Bluett, on 09 Mar 2016

The title says it all. Lovely location, marvellous staff, fantastic food, tremendous attention to detail, but what really sets the Mill House apart is their flexibility. My daughter was very depressed by the number of venues that told her she could have one of the following "packages". At the Mill House it was "what would you like?" and "we can do that." A truly memorable day made special through the Mill House.

Wedding day
Venue Service

By coolio90, on 28 Dec 2015

I was best man at a wedding yesterday fri 22nd August 2014 and the reception and overnight stay was here. The whole team laid on a fantastic day.the food was awesome and the organisation was second to none. The owner even became master of ceremonies which helped me as I was bricking it before my speech. Great location . Only downside was only one rasher in the breakfast !!

My Wedding
Venue Service

By Julie B, on 28 Dec 2015

We got married at there on 7th March 2015. We bought one of their packages that meant they organised most things for us, including the disco, flowers for tables etc, all we had to do was choose things. They are the experts at organising weddings and this meant my Fiancee and I could just sit back and relax and enjoy our day. Our guests commented on how well they were looked after and the quality of the food and service. All the staff were charming and friendly even after they had been on their feet all day tending to our needs, nothing was too much trouble. I would definately recommend this venue for your wedding

Fantastic Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By sian 239, on 28 Dec 2015

We had our wedding at The Mill House in March 2015. We are so glad that we chose this venue - nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were so helpful from the first time we came to look around all the way through to our big day! The food here is amazing and our wedding meal was delicious! The chef was very accommodating to our guests with dietary requirements, which was very reassuring. The rooms are all individually decorated and all our guests seemed to get a good night's sleep during our stay. The whole day ran very smoothly and we were able to have everything just as we wanted it, which was very important as we wanted our wedding to reflect us as individuals. We have had so many comments from our guests on what a lovely venue we chose and I have to agree! If anyone is considering The Mill House as a wedding venue then it is definitely worth a visit. We would like to thank everyone here for helping to make our day so special

Great hotel and wedding venue
Venue Service

By RachyRach27, on 28 Dec 2015

My friend hired this hotel for her wedding reception and it was just perfect. We could not have asked for more. Driving up to the front of the hotel the first thing you notice is just how beautiful the building is and also how well presented it is. Inside it is very clean, tidy with a superbly well stocked bar ;-) The grounds to the rear of the hotel are equally well kept with a variety of patio furniture and plenty of tables and chairs on the grass. There is a large marquee complete with dance floor, lots of party and mood lighting, a bar and also with a covered canopy leading back to the hotel in case the weather turns inclement. The marquee has folding doors down one side which open directly onto the grass which is lovely as it really is a sun trap. The rooms are not massive but by goodness are those beds comfortable! Again the rooms and bathroom are clean, well lit and fully stocked of everything you need. The area is so quiet and relaxing that you are guaranteed a good nights rest. The staff were all wonderfully friendly and could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend this hotel for all types of stay and even more so if you are having a wedding or a party. Just perfect, thank you for a lovely stay.

A Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Patricia R, on 28 Dec 2015

Last month my daughter, Kirsty, married her fiance, Kevin, at the Mill House. It was truly an amazing day. From the nuptials (a perfect registrar officiated) to everything that followed including the food, could not have been better. The reception was held in the marquee and, as the weather was beautiful, it could not have been a better venue. Kim and Mark who own the hotel were superb hosts. Everything went along totally smoothly thanks to their dedication and determination that everything would be just perfect. I cannot think of a better venue for a wedding. My husband and I stayed for two nights and our bedroom was lovely - the bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom fine and the decor tasteful to the eye. All in all an incredibly memorable day for so many reasons. Well done to Kim & Mark!

Excellent Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By KirstyS172, on 28 Dec 2015

I recently had my Wedding at The Mill. The whole process was made very easy and enjoyable by Mark & Kim. Menu choices, room logistics and layouts all easy with excellent, timely communication. The day before the Wedding some of us stayed; the rooms comfortable, tastefully decorated, the breakfasts with good portions and variety. The whole venue is just .....charming! On the day the Wedding ran seamlessly, excellent food, service and staff all overseen by the very experienced Mark & Kim. We could not fault one part of our dealings with The Mill and highly recommend.

Magical Wedding Day
Venue Service

By sarah S, on 28 Dec 2015

My daughter married on the 21/08/2015 at a church wedding and held her reception at The Mill House. Everything about the day was beautiful from our luck at the sun shining to the beautiful service and then to top it all THE MILL HOUSE. With it's beautiful setting and really pretty grounds to the star of it all the marquee. Mark and Kim and all of their staff were just so attentive and courteous to us all and everything my daughter and her husband wanted was already thought of or done within seconds of asking....not that any of us had to ask as everything was perfect. The food was really lovely. My husband had broken his leg 5 days before the wedding and they made sure he had somewhere to keep his leg elevated hidden under the top table. Much appreciated. At the end of the evening they completely cleared the marquee of all the decorations and placed them in a room for our collection in the morning. And talking of the morning we were all given a much needed breakfast which was an amazing ending to our daughter's and son-in-laws beautiful wedding. We all sat overlooking the gardens with a huge fry up. We had booked all rooms for the guests and our room was really comfortable. We had our grandson in with us and they made up another bed for him. My daughter was overwhelmed with how The Mill House gave her such a memorable reception and we wish to thank ALL staff. THANK YOU!!
