    The Mill House is a lovely building and well converted to modern needs, but; Garden is not suitable for dogs, there are 3 parts, 1st is the rear which is attached to the house, it is tiny, no grass, loose stones / chippings, it is overgrown, is not securely enclosed and not suitable, safe, dogs or kids - ceramic pots balanced on top of each other form part of the boundary by a gate and it would be easy for a dog or child to fall through the roof of the conservatory. Due tiny size there is no room for any play (kids or dogs). The 2nd garden is the other side of a public footpath, to access you have to leave house, cross this footpath and go through a gate to the garden, which is at least secure and a reasonable size. The 3rd garden, is again accessed across the other side of a public footpath, but this garden has no gate and is not in any way secure. Lounge has 3 windows and a door which can be all looked through from above footpaths and road, but only has curtains on one widow). No privacy at night. The lounge is very dark due lack of lighting / low wattage bulbs. Was very unhappy re garden as description is completely misleading, making no mention of public footpaths and lack of safety / security.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry you did not find the arrangements of the gardens to your liking. Your description of the gardens being split into three by two footpaths on either side of the house is correct, however most guests do not find that a major inconvenience for a short stay. The website description (and its photos) is not meant to be misleading, just brief, because the gardens, while pleasant enough, are not the major attraction of the property. I can assure you that the undressed windows in the living room are not overlooked at night, unless someone was to either trespass through the property's gate into the back garden, or climb up onto the rubbish bin enclosure to get enough height to peek into the rather high window. Neither of those scenarios has ever happened, so we chose to keep the windows undressed in order to not unnecessarily block out natural daylight from entering into what you mention can otherwise be a somewhat dark room due to the old-style nature of the property. I am sorry that trade-off was not one you agree with.

    The only negatives were: no clothes hanging rails in bedrooms and garden could be more appealing.I also had to clean out the shower tray drain as it was blocked with hair. Overall,a very pleasant property.
