House | 13 bedrooms | sleeps 30
The stately front door - reminiscent of a bygone era - hints at the famous visitors that have been entertained here including Queen Mary and Winston Churchill who both thought of the house as the perfect weekend retreat. The welcoming interior of the entrance hall retains many original first class Victorian features. In the winter you will be greeted by the warmth of the open fire and in summer the light streams through the tall windows across the mellow wood floors.Mill View has recently been featured in 25 beautiful homes Magazine.
Crossing the entrance hall you enter the classically elegant dining room, onto the stunning Drawing Room and the impressive staircase hall with its mahogany paneling and stained glass windows and you will be swept off your feet in seconds.
Moving into the kitchen you have a more modern view – a luxury well equipped kitchen and glass atrium breakfast room – cleverly styled to retain the country house feel by making a feature of an old well and including a beautiful cream Aga cooker plus a large smeg cooker too.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
Just west of London (90 minutes by rail or car), the Cotswolds is a hilly area around 100 miles (160km) north to south.
'Cotswolds' is a combination of two very old English words. Everyone's pretty much agreed that Wolds are gentle hills. And most people agree that 'Cots' are sheep enclosures. So 'Cotswolds' probably just means an area of gentle hills with plenty of sheep around.
