I had a perfect stay at the Gages Mill in October. I was attending a conference down the road and choose the Gages Mill after reading its customer reviews. First impressions of the Mill were remarkable! It was signposted therefore easy to find. A picturesque, quaint B&B situated in the lush rural countryside. Greeted by Kate (very charming) who provided...

Great base for a short stay. One of the best Guest Houses I've stayed in. Great feel about the old building, Kate & Nathan were very helpful with recommends & directions to local restaurants/pubs. Excellent breakfast, not 'padded out' with a plate full of baked beans! Would recommend to a friend.

Well run establishment which has been professionally converted and with friendly hosts. Convenient for pub and main road but not noisy. Plus points include basics like proper parking on site and wifi. (Rooms don't have own TVs but frankly that keeps noise down and if you are desperate you can use a device or go to the lounge.)
