Exceptional!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Nov 2023
Our weekend stay at the Millbrook Estate was truly exceptional, and we were thoroughly impressed by the meticulous attention to detail displayed by the hosts, Bob and Kate. The small touches made our experience truly memorable.

The accommodation was nothing short of fabulous and the grounds were beautiful which helped to make for a completely relaxing break.

What set our stay apart was the thoughtful consideration for our four-legged companions. Bringing our two dogs was a joy, as they were exceptionally well-catered for, adding an extra layer of comfort to our visit.

Bob and Kate have truly created a haven for those seeking a perfect blend of luxury, relaxation, and natural beauty.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Millbrook Cottages and had a truly amazing stay. From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a good choice for our mini break.

    The proprietors clearly know how to create a luxurious environment and have invested heavily to deliver a truly beautiful, tranquil and comfortable offering for their guests. We were completely blown away at the high specification and attention to detail within our accommodation and the surrounding estate. Bob, Kate and the team run a very slick operation that's totally focused on providing their guests with a priceless experience.

    It's very rare that I feel motivated to review a venue but the Millbrook Estate deserves a special mention. It delivers on it's promise...'Heaven in Devon'!

    Millbrook was the venue for our wedding – just the two of us and our dog. ‘What a magical experience’ succinctly summarises our stay and special wedding day. The accommodation is of a high standard providing luxury with a welcoming cosy feel. The grounds of the estate are a fabulous place to retreat and relax with lovely country wooded walks by the small lakes with a friendly nudge from an alpaca or three along the away. The staff are amazing and nothing is too much effort with every attention to detail being given – thank you Meg. We could not had wished for anything nicer or anywhere better and so pleased we choose Millbrook for our special day. A huge thank you and highly recommend Millbrook.

    This was our second visit to Millbrook Wheel room, a week this time, but still never long enough. The peace and quiet envelopes you, it’s just magical. The team really care and go that extra mile, from the spotless presentation, the homemade cake and fresh-baked bread, to the pup-pack to make any dog feel at home, it’s a natural spa. The BBQ hut is pure magic - fairy lanterns light you through the woodland walk, expect a hobby or elf to emerge and welcome you - we are not natural bbq people but this is something really special, an evening to remember and again all set up- all your plates, glasses, cutlery, cooking tools etc fire laid, strike a match music playing and enjoy! Daytime walks to lakes and watching the alpaca, chickens, goats, cats and occasional people kept our pup fascinated for hours between visits to Devon’s fab beaches. Recommend the Boathouse at Instow for eating, view and dog friendly. We have booked our Autumn return as a pre-winter boost. Thanks to the team for the extra special Birthday treat🥳

    Room tip: Be prepared to fall under Millbrook’s spell

    Millbrook will always be so special to us, we married in July 2023 and had the most amazing time and I could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding and venue.

    On arrival we were speechless with how beautiful the estate is, and that carried on as we entered our accommodation.

    We had a 4 night stay in Lakeview and loved the additional touches, a wedding sign, mr and Mrs mugs to use during our stay, homemade cake, freshly made bread - every addition was carefully thought about. We could not have wanted for more in Lakeview, everything was to such a high quality and the housekeeper clearly does such an amazing job - thank you!

    Our wedding day was so magical and we felt very lucky that Meg was our coordinator. Nothing was too much trouble and her warmth instantly made me feel calm yet excited for the day ahead. We did not need to think of a thing on the day because Meg was already ahead of us!

    The online welcome pack prior to leaving was so helpful and answered all questions we may have had and the downloadable app made it so easy to refer back to.

    Although we did not have the opportunity to meet Kate and Bob we would like to thank them for opening their beautiful estate, everything about our stay was perfect and we will be back to visit.

    Have to mention the animals on site who make the stay that little bit more special. We loved feeding the chickens and found it highly amusing that they would run the length of the field to get to us, we were greeted each morning by Willow the cat who would come for walks around the estate - as a cat lover it felt like a dream. We also loved getting the chance to meet the alpacas on our walks.

    Room tip: We brought everything we would need for the week so we didn’t need to leave the estate. Keep some bread to feed the chickens
