The Mill House


The Mill House is a beautiful detached Georgian farmhouse situated in a quiet country lane.  It has spectacular views across fields to the downs and is a ten-minute walk from the sea at Brighstone Bay. Across the lane is a pleasant ten-minute walk beside the stream, which leads to the picturesque village of Brighstone with its village shops, family friendly pub, gift shop, library, children’s play park and National Trust Museum.  Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is a marvellous walking and cycling area and footpaths can be followed from The Mill House to join coastal and inland paths leading to Tennyson Downs and the Needles. The sandy bays of Compton, Totland and Colwell are a short drive away as are the small towns of Freshwater and Yarmouth offering a choice of restaurants and shops. Children of all ages are welcome, as are well behaved pets (by arrangement).

The Mill House has been renovated to a very high standard with many original features retained and has been awarded the VisitEngland five star Gold award since 2009. The house is centrally heated and has a combination of fitted carpets, rugs, stone and wooden floors. Almost all the rooms have open rural views. The property benefits from a beautiful handmade kitchen with AGA and accommodates up to 12 guests in four double rooms with king sized beds (one with four poster bed) and two twin rooms (one with full sized bunk beds and one ground floor bedroom with two single beds) with three bathrooms (one family bathroom with corner bath and shower cubicle, one bathroom with roll top bath and one downstairs bathroom with shower cubicle). There is an elegant sitting room with an open fireplace, grand piano, stereo system and comfortable seating and a snug sitting room with sofa, chairs and bean bags, a wood burning stove, colour television, DVD player (bring your own DVDs) and a selection of family games, children’s toys and books. The dining room with views over the garden is furnished with solid oak furniture and also has a wood burning stove.

The Mill House is surrounded by large, private and enclosed gardens with mature shrubs, trees and large lawned areas. There is a patio area with garden furniture and a gas BBQ for guests’ use. There is ample parking to the rear of the property.  Our changeover day is usually a Saturday arriving at 3 pm and departing by 10 am, however, outside the summer months, we are happy to accept short breaks and can be flexible with regards to arrival and departure.  A Welcome pack is provided on arrival, there are hairdryers in every bedroom and Wifi is free of charge.
