Mill Bank and the Abbey Mill

Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3

Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • No pets allowed

9 Mill Bank is a bijou, Grade II listed, 16th century cottage lying alongside the River Avon, near to the historic Abbey, in one of Gloucestershire's most picturesque, medieval settings. Its unique location disguises its close proximity to the heart of the town and its variety of shops, inns and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Nearby places of interest include The Cotswolds, Stratford upon Avon, Worcester, Cheltenham, Gloucester and The Forest of Dean.

The accommodation consists of a lounge and integrated kitchenette area, with a beautiful Art Nouveau range and open fire, colour TV/DVD, electric cooker, microwave, fridge, sofa bed and storage heater. Steep, curving stairs lead to the double bedroom with half-bath.

Recently refurbished and retaining many original features, it offers both comfort and convenience in an “olde worlde” setting. With outstanding, uninterrupted views over the Severn Ham to the Malvern Hills, this is the ideal place to relax and “chille oute”.

Favourite visitor's quote: “It truly is a gem”.

"Beautiful little cottage, excellent location"

We were looking for somewhere to stay at short notice and came across this property, which had availability for our dates. The reviews seemed almost too good to be true, but turned out they were right! Mill Bank is a beautiful location in a lovely town, and the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Although small, it has everything you need and is very stylish. We felt sorry for the people we spoke to who were staying in hotels in Tewkesbury! The owners live right next door and were welcoming and helpful. It is literally a 5 minute walk to the Abbey or the town, which is quite unique with lots of independent shops and good places to eat. There was nothing we did not like about the place, and hope to make a return visit next year

"Everything we hoped for - and more!"

A perfect location for taking it easy and recharging the batteries. Close enough to the Cotswolds and everything they have to offer (if a base is what you want). Such a quiet backstreet right on the river - but just a couple of minuets walk to the town centre. We sat and watched the sun set most evenings with the gentle sound of the river going over the wear in the background. The cottage gave everything we could have wanted for our stay - and more. The cottage puts the 'quirk' into quirky - although small, it was well equipped and with thoughtful extras such as milk in the fridge on arrival. The small bath took a little getting used to - but we quickly got the measure of it!

A last word must go to Bill and Dawn - perfect hosts who live next door.

"Wonderful cottage with fabulous river view"

The cottage is gorgeous. It is tiny but beautifully decorated with high quality items. The owners appear to have thought of everything you might need to enjoy a stay in Tewksbury. The bath in the bedr… More

"Tiny character cottage"

Absolutely tiny cottage (1 room upstairs, 1 downstairs) ideal as a base for exploring the area. Don't expect to do much catering as there isn't much room to cook or store food. Not suitable … More

Thank you for taking the time to review 9 Mill Bank. Interior photographs of the cottage and room sizes are clearly displayed on our website, where the stairs are described as steep and curving. It also states: Please note that access could be difficult for disabled persons. It is honestly not in our interest to disappoint anyone. Glad you enjoyed your stay; the river views and "awesome sunsets".

"Absolutely amazing weekend away."

Was stunned by the cottage the uninterrupted views, the hospitality, the charm and character not to mention its history. An absolute must for people looking for a relaxing time away in peaceful chocolate box surroundings. Will definitely be returning and recommending to all. Well done to bill and dawn who have done a magnificent job on its restoration for us all to enjoy. Go you wont be disappointed.

"A unique little cottage"

A great little cottage that suited us as a base for visiting the Cotswolds.
Plenty of evening eating places within walking distance.
Cottage clean and comfortable.
Our only criticism is that it did not have a proper shower and the bath, situated in the bedroom, was very small. However Bill did offer the use of a shower in his cottage which was next door.
The steep, narrow staircase would not be suitable for older persons or those with a walking disability.

"Excellent cottage to stay regardless what you plan to do there"

This very cosy cottage has everything you need on a daily basis, just as the town itself! Plenty of places to do your daily shopping, nice places to eat and a good choice of pubs. It also has great places to visit like the Abbey, the John Moore Museum, Heritage Centre, Farmers Market, riverwalks etc. It is all on the doorstep of this cottage.
And after a day out it is great to sit on the bench infront of the cottage and watch the sometimes stunning sunsets over the Ham.
If you just want to relax and chill out: this is the place to be. If you are in to walking, birdwatching etc. this is also the place to be.

The owners live next door and that is a bonus as well: they are very nice and very helpful!

"Great fun"

A wonderfully characterful cottage in a unique location. My children (4 and 2) are still talking about it.
