The third floor room is open plan from the stairs from the second floor. It has a semi circular built-in bed which we have not included in the listings but is available for use. it is 3 foot at its widest but tapers at each end so is more suited to a child or small adult.
A ladder takes you up to the Mill cap where you can gaze at the stars through the telescope and look out over miles of rivers and fields. A door from the cap leads onto to a small balcony. Please note that we would not recommend children under 14 go into the cap and out onto the balcony unless closely supervised by an adult.

Our little one has grown up at the Mill but some parents may feel that the steep narrow stairs up to the bedrooms are not suitable to little ones who are unsteady on their feet. The garden backs onto open water at the rear.
Please email us if you have any questions.
The 1/4 acre garden backs on to water and fields, so our only neighbours are the cows and swans.
