The Central England/Cotswolds region
At the Heart of England sits Braunston the Heart of the British Waterways. An historic village sitting on the borders of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. This makes staying here the ideal base to explore both the historic areas such as Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa and the HiTech of Silverstone.
A must to visit is the Marina, extensively restored with new warehouse style accommodation. All historical equipment and buildings have been beautifully repainted. This is now indeed one of the most impressive inland Marinas in England.
Although mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086, Braunston remained just a rural farming community, the Manor being a major working farm house with stables, stockyard and outbuilding, until the late 1700’s.
All changed with the construction of the canal, the main transport network of that time. Braunston became the main central point of this canal system. Important at last! Although commercial canal traffic finished in the 1960’s Braunston is now very busy with leisure boats, accompanying tourists and related businesses.
A canalside walk will take you past Chandlers, boat builders/fitters, souvenir shops and the Old Pump House with its enormous chimney. This Pump House in times past was used for restocking the top canal pounds with water form the bottom pound Reservoirs now used as moorings for the numerous narrow boats stationed here.
Easy drive to Warwick with it's Castle, Stratford upon Avon, Silverstone and The NEC makes Braunston the ideal location.

Thank you for your review on your return visit to Mill Cottage. We note your comments on the size of bed in the bedroom which is the same size as your last stay. We have considered installing a larger bed but feel that this would not be in keeping with the layout of the cottages bedroom.
Your comments on the level of lighting in the bedrooms has been most useful. We can confirm we have installed new lighting for the dressing table area.
The downstairs shower and bathroom are smaller than most you may find in a new build home but we do find that most guests find as adequate. We have thought at removing the shower so as to give more room for a larger basin but this would mean our guests would have only the round bath to use and not a separate shower. The bathroom layout though is the same as when you last visited so we are sure you did find adequate for your stay. We recently added Apple TV for our guests to use after having the worst Summer weather for over 100 years! We are really sorry to hear you could not view films which are all free. If you had called during your stay we would have been down straight away to show you how to use the system. Mill cottage is a grade 2 listed building and so we are limited to what we can do to the structure of the building. Unfortunately the stairs cannot be replaced and the creak although to some may annoy to many this is part of the buildings character.
As for the outside tented structure as already mentioned we have suffered like all with the awful summer weather. Would you believe we even had a tornado hit us 1 Sunday morning and this took down 3 trees. We are working hard to remove the resulting moss and the loose debris which continues to fall from the trees in the garden and have started to replace the roof with a new thatched roof and rewire the few light fittings which were damaged by the falling trees. As some of this work may be obtrusive to our guests we have this planned for a closure period in the very near future.
We would really like to thank you for your comments and we are delighted that you again enjoyed your stay at Mill Cottage and hope to see you both again in the future.

My partner & I stayed in the mill cottage last weekend. The cottage is high tech with every amenity but very cosy. We arrived late Friday to a beautifully laid table complete with fresh flowers, wine & chocolates. The owner Simon seemed to have thought of everything & the kitchen had goodies such as cookies, bread, eggs & juice as well as all the essentials like coffee, tea, milk & sugar. We didn't want to leave the cottage but it is v central & Warwick & Lemington spa are a short drive away. We had a relaxing stay & we loved the huge round bath & are very own hot tub was pure luxury. I would definitely recommend the cottage to fellow travellers especially those looking for somewhere different with a sense of style, luxury & high standards.
