Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car essential
  • No pets allowed

Mill Cottage is to be found at the end of a quiet winding lane about one mile from the A449 between Worcester and Ombersley and stands adjacent to the water mill which was producing flour for Worcester until the mid 1940s and remains in its original state although is no longer working.

It occupies a beautiful, rural situation between the Droitwich canal and the river Salwarpe and comes with fishing rights just a few short paces from the front door on the river and the mill pond.

If you fancy something a little more strenuous, there are footpaths along the canal to get up close to swans, ducks and waterfowl courting, nesting or tending to their young - depending on the time of year.

And, for those wanting something to get the blood pumping, a plethora of exhilarating walks in the area. There is something for everyone and at any time of the year!

The centrally heated cottage sits in beautiful gardens with chickens that can provide fresh eggs (when they're laying!). Guests may also be offered fruit and vegetables depending on the season and size of the glut... There's even an 18 hole putting course at your disposal, putters and golf balls provided.

There must be something about Mill Cottage and its location since there are several visitors who have been coming to stay every year for almost 20 years!

You can thus have the best of both worlds at Mill Cottage since the many attractions of Worcester are but a few miles away with Malvern, Evesham, Cheltenham and Birmingham within very easy reach to satisfy the shoppers and music, art and theatre lovers amongst you.

Further details indoors

The ground floor of Mill Cottage is semi open-plan. There is an L-shaped wooden settle with bench seats which divides the room. The kitchen is well equipped and the sitting area very comfortable.

Upstairs are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

Bedroom 1 has a superking-sized bed

Bedroom 2 has a single bed with another full-sized single underneath which can be pulled out to make twins.

The bathroom has a bath with a power shower over, lavatory and wash basin.

Further details outdoors

There are large gardens surrounding Mill Cottage which are carefully tended by the owners and are criss-crossed by streams from the River Salwarpe upon which Mildenham Mill stands.

There has been a water mill on the site since the 11th century although the present building was built sometime in the 18th century. It no longer works but is pretty much as it was when the last miller shut down operations in 1950.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the gardens and are actively encouraged to take advantage of the private fishing at the property.

"Superb is the only word to describe the cottage"

This place is the best in every way. Quiet, peaceful and yet near to Worcester. Have stayed here every year for the past three years and will continue to go for the future. The hosts, Val and Bob, are perfect in every way. The gardens surrounding the cottage have to seen to be believed, a river that is by the cottage has ducks, swans and fish, birds of all types visit the property. The cottage is very well equipped, everything is supplied to make your visit very comfortable, a real gem of a place.
