“Perfect for a family get together”
Mill House sits practically on top of the sea with easy access to excellent walks and great scenery. The accommodation is spacious enough for a party of 10 ranging from 4 to 77 year olds to be able to find peace and quiet. The property is tastefully decorated and well accessorised and maintained. We enjoyed our week and would happily recommend it to anyone.
“Dream Break in Perfect Location”
We had the most wonderful break in Mill House. Lee Bay is a childhood haunt and the location of Mill House could not be better. The house itself is beautifully presented and comfortably accomodated seven of us. Having two living rooms, a dining room and the kitchen meant there was plenty of space for everyone. It was perfect.
Owner's reply: I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and retracing your steps from earlier years - I bet Lee has hardly changed! Hopefully now refreshed and recharged : )
“Notting Hill Beach House”
The location is as close to the sea as it is possible to get with beach walks and rock pooling at low tide and a dramatic seascape at high tide. The sea literally licks the walls of the house. One can walk along the cliff path from the house to either Woolacombe or Ilfracombe. The garden and terraces overlooking the sea would be wonderful in fine weather and have plenty of tables and chairs although the terrace at the front of the house was sheltered enough to use in March. The property is beautifully decorated to a beach theme although still manages to be cosy with open fires in the two drawing rooms. There is a pub 10 minutes walk away which serves good food and has lively musical evenings and there are two exceptionally good pubs in Georgham, about 20 minutes drive away. Woolacombe and Ilfracombe (each about 20 mins drive) have many shops. We felt very relaxed and at home there and the only problem is that it is too long a drive from London to go more often!
Owner's reply: Thank you - I'm so glad you all enjoyed your time at The Mill House. A good way to travel from London is by train ... direct from Paddington - Tiverton in 2 hours + hire car (they deliver/collect from Tiverton Parkway) @ approx £105 for 3 days. Or Taxi approx £95 each way. Hope to see you again.
“A great house in a beautiful location”
I was organising a company away week for 10 people and the Mill House was a brilliant location. The house is quirky but had plenty of space to both relax and work in and is really well kitted out with "extras" to make for an enjoyable stay - modern kitchen, open fireplaces etc. The surrounding area was beautiful and walking straight from the house onto the beach is very special. The owner was very helpful in finding activities in the local area and a Shepherding lesson in Mortehoe was a particularly memorable experience. I would thoroughly recommend it as a location for similar retreats.
Owner's reply: I'm glad it work so well for you all ... and especially that you enjoyed the Shepherding experience with our 'celebrity' farmer, David Kennard : )
“What an amazing house!! Beautiful setting!!!!!”
This was the perfect house and location for girlie birthday celebrations!!! It was a lovely blend of old and new, clean and charming and we would HIGHLY recommend it!! The owners arranged for Doug to help us out with laying and sorting out the fire - what a star! Big thanks to him. It was the perfect setting for a weekend full of girlie giggles, wine, bunting, a surprise tea party, spa, Miranda, walks, food, shopping, champagne, chocolate, cake, and A LOT OF FUN! Thank you so much for a fabulous weekend!!!
Owner's reply: It sounds like you had a great time. And, yes, Doug is a star when it comes to all the TLC the Mill needs with his fixing and mending : )
Excellent time had by all the family. We stayed at the Mill House for one week for my mother's 60th birthday. We all had a great time; the house was amazing, the position was amazing, and Lee Bay is a beautiful village. The owners were extremely helpful and organised a 'Chef for the night' - which I would definitely recommend for anyone who can't go out in the evenings (young children!) or just wants to be cooked for in the comfort of the Mill House. The only thing I would say (which didn't really affect us as the weather didn't make it possible) is that the garden isn't great for young kids. The position is right on the sea edge (which is brilliant and amazing) but obviously not great for littlies! The garden is also tucked completely round the back of the house. Overall the house is great and what an AMAZING position!
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review and all the great comments about the house/position/bay - so pleased you had a good holiday. As far as young children and the garden are concerned, it’s fair to say there are quite a few steps and so toddlers would need to be supervised. As they get older there is a flat area of lawn on which to play and some shady trees, as well as lots of little paths to follow and explore. Oh, and just to say the boundary next to the bay has railings around, so you can’t just wander onto the beach. Hope to see you again. Nick
“Long surf weekend - Guy Fawkes”
What can I say, other than incredible. The house is beautiful, full of old worldly character and charm - yet with all the modern conveniences - a fantastic kitchen which spewed fourth superb cuisine for amazing group dinners in the adjacent dining room and great bathrooms. The location is unbeatable, with the water at your door step/ out you bedroom window. A group of 10, were down recently for a long surf weekend which co-incided with Guy Fawkes evening. The surf was pretty rubbish but we had a fantastic time. Including the most up-close and personal experience with a baby seal who seemed to be making a break for it up the hill. (this hill climb is over a km long). After coaxing him/ her off the road with smoked salmon, we then managed to keep him/her contained in the front porch until the animal rescue could arrive and assess the situation. By this time the seal seemed quite attached to us - as we did he/her. It transpired he/her wasn't well and was off with them to be feed and cared for for the week before being released. Plenty of cute seal photos were taken I can assure. Lee Bay itself is a wonderfully charming area, with great rock pools on lowtide, a fantastic local pub (Grampius), and coastal walks. It's a superb retreat. I can't wait to go back. And the owners made the whole process of staying extremely hassle free. The Champagne waiting for us on arrival was a lovely touch. Thanks again. Gary & Co.
Owner's reply: It must have been amazing to be so close to the baby seal. There's quite a few in and around the bay. And last year an Otter appeared on the Mill House draw bridge! See you again. Better luck next time with the surf. Nick
“Amazing spot and beautiful house such a treat - and a real home from home”
It's not often that when writing a review for a place you worry that if you are too nice then it will be harder to book up next time. The Mill House is such a place. Everything about the house and it's location is jaw-droppingly good. The house is incredibly comfortable and tastefully decorated that it made it difficult to leave to explore the area. From the moment we walked through the door and saw the welcome note and bottle of Champagne we knew we were in for a treat. It did not dissapoint and even 4 days of rain failed to dampen our spirits all because of the house and the village. It was an unforgettable week and we will definitely be back - thank you Nick and family!
Owner's reply: Thank you too. Most kind. Hope to see you again soon.
“An amazing period property with modern amenities in a fabulous location”
I really enjoyed staying at the Mill House in Lee Bay. It is a really interesting and quirky old property with lots of history but has been updated in all the right places - kitchen and bathrooms. The house is right on the beach so the views are unsurpassed, from inside as well as out on the terrace. I hope to be able to go back one day...
“Superb - You won't be disappointed”
A beautiful house, full of character and the views/location are just stunning. The owners were great, really helpful giving advice on where to go and what to do. We had an amazing weekend - 10 adults celebrating a birthday - just perfect! We didn't want to leave.
Owner's reply: Thank you. It seems to have been the year of celebrating Birthdays at the Mill this year ... from 20-something to 70-something and everything in between. You're very welcome.
