Large Group Retreat, near Cirencester (ARLINGMC)

Dating back to the Doomsday Book, The Property is both historic and iconic and for the first time ever - you can stay in this outstanding property! Set in the heart of Bibury and with the original wheels and old machinery visually preserved but not working, guests will feel surrounded by a unique atmosphere that is rare to experience. Once upon a time this is where corn from around the Cotswolds was brought and milled for consumption - it's real history! Today, this vast building set across four floors offers wonderful self catering accommodation for up 13 guests. There are two living rooms, each enormous, a smart kitchen and then across the floors are five bedrooms and five bathrooms. It's immaculate in presentation and very clean and we feel an ideal place for groups to get together and relax completely.
Within, literally, 2 mins walk are two pubs - each serving food so it couldn't be better for a completely relaxed weekend or holiday. The kids will love it, as the Bibury Trout Farm is next door across the river from where you can catch a fish within about 1 min of fishing! The trout farm has a decent general shop that you will find very convenient during your stay.
For many reasons, this is an excellent choice for families or for friends, and for many reasons we think that you will return once you have stayed. We love it!

Outside safety

The rear of the property has an enclosed (but not lockable) terrace. Please note that the mill stream (leat) is deep and often fast flowing through an underwater sluice and therefore it is dangerous for pets, children and adults to approach the leat or to walk on the wall next to the leat. Please keep your family away from the water.

Children Welcome. Permanent wooden cot supplied (not a travel cot), 1 high chair. 2 well behaved dogs allowed. Wifi available and included but this is a rural village set in a valley so wifi can be unreliable.

The Mill has Wi-Fi via the modem in the downstairs living room. Due to the thick stone walls, the wireless signal is not consistent through the house, however there is a booster on the first floor so you should have some signal through the house.

The house has a telephone for incoming calls only.

Ample Parking. *The extra beds are charged at £75 each, per weekend or per week.

Security deposit of £500.00 is required 1 week prior to arrival.

LocationSouth West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
