We had the pleasure of staying at the old granary for just over a week, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hosts Gareth and Carol have shown great attention to every little detail to make you feel... more
Thank you for your very kind review. We look forward to seeing you again when you return to Roborough in July. Hopefully the warm summer weather will be here by then!

The only negative was that we didnt stay long enough. Carol and gareth have a hidden gem and we already want to plan to come back again. Truely perfect. Quiet, peacful, cosy and comfortable. We even found the locals extremely friendly and can not wait to come back. Get away from the city and everyday stress and do it here just stay as long as you can.
Thank you both

We had a wonderful time at the mill.
The details and touches put in where fantastic and the effort put into making it a cosy home getaway was truly appreciated!
The log fire was a treat! and the scones on arrival prepared us for a wonderfully relaxing weekend!
Thank You So Much To Carol & Gareth!
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad you enjoyed your short break. It was a pleasure to meet you both. We look forward to welcoming you back soon, maybe next time it will be warm enough to enjoy a barbecue in the garden.
