The split-level accommodation is full of character and is configured with large groups in mind, with bedrooms cleverly dotted throughout the property to ensure peace and privacy. As well as large social areas, you’ll also find tucked-away reading nooks and a beautiful private terrace with river views, so everyone can spread out and relax during the holiday.

Outside, take a morning stroll around the private grounds and spot an amazing array of wildlife including deer, otters and kingfishers. Explore the orchard, potter around the secret gardens and partake in a spot of fishing along the private stretch of river (children and pets must be supervised). On a warm evening, light the BBQ or create your own pizzas together to cook in the wood-fired pizza oven, for an unforgettable evening of fun and laughter. Top it off with a glass of bubbly and relax in your own private hot tub.

Lovely location, easy to find in the light (some others struggled in the dark). House was clean, spacious and warm. Amazing value for money, great it had wellies as it was quite rainy when we visited. lots of leaflets with information on about the facilities and the history of the building. Great for a large dinner party, not overlooked so no worriRead morees for upsetting neighbors with playing music. Communication from owner was great, will recommend and go back! Hide

Foe a February half term break we found the mill very cosy, it is very spacious and with 4 children in the party that brilliant as there was always somewhere quiet if you just wanted to read, we would definitely think of going again

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating our Mums 70th Birthday in Nymet Mill. So much space and beds were the most comfortable thing we had ever slept on! The surrounding area was fabulous for dog walks despite us being there during storm Dennis!

Reviewed by Saffron, 29th December 2019

Great house for a large party of guests, idylic and very private setting. Rooms are comfortable and the newly installed bathrooms are great. Decor is a little dated in some places and one of our party complained of a very creaky bed but otherwise a good value choice if you've got multiple guests staying.

Reviewed by Ahmad, 22nd December 2019

Great secluded property with a very authentic feel to it, this property is laced with heritage which makes you really appreciate it, it provides plenty of space for 12 full grown adults, and the different quarters of the property provide added privacy. You have access to a sizeable land which allows for many family activities.
