The Old Mill is an 18th century Grade II listed former mill located on the foothills of the village of Bishop's Hull by the banks of the River Tone within just two miles of Taunton in Somerset. Intentionally converted as an intimate two-roomed B&B several years ago, the interior has recently been upgraded by the new owners to provide guests with contemporary standards of style and comfort whilst preserving the historical origins and character of its milling heritage.

El alojamiento

The Old Mill offers guests an out of the ordinary stay. As an entire property The Old Mill comprises of three adjoining buildings, each with a respective facade, character and history. The private two guest-roomed* B&B is housed within the separate original mill, hidden from view behind the family's front-facing Victorian cottage. Guests therefore are able to enjoy their own secluded and intimate river banked guest wing.

Situated within five-acre river banked grounds on a lane, surrounded by abundant nature and wildlife, the immediate area feels as if it's in the heart of the countryside and yet the town is a mere few minutes' drive away. You may even want to take a 20-25 minute walk into town. Leisurely strolls along the river following the old Great Western Canal route path by the 'Pooh-sticks' bridge next to The Old Mill will take you into a stunning 24-acre woodland nature reserve.

The Old Mill's interior, like its exterior, reflects a beguiling mix of authentically rustic quirky charm. Guests can expect wonky white stone and brick walls, exposed timber beamed ceilings, stable doors, leaded windows, pared-back floors, and intriguing wheels, cogs and mill stones nestling with contemporary lush furnishings. Guests are welcome to enjoy the grounds and both the lower and upper floor space in and around the mill: a private guest entrance, wrap-around terraces, waterfront garden, a sitting room, an upper-floor dining/work space area, and not least, a well-equipped double-aspect bedroom overlooking the river beneath with a super-king bed, Juliet balcony & a high-spec en-suite with walk-in double rain shower.

NB. * The Old Mill has two double guest rooms: the Mill Room with an en-suite (as advertised), and the Cottage Room with an adjacent private bathroom presented separately as 'The Cottage at the Old Mill". Guests who have booked the Mill Room frequently have the use of the guest wing entirely to themselves whenever the second room is guest-free.
The Old Mill operates as a B&B, therefore please note that regrettably guests do not have access to self-catering facilities; stays are hosted.
The two-course breakfast includes self-selection continental choices and served hot choices from a Full English selection of items.

Atención a los huéspedes

Stays at The Old Mill are hosted in the traditional B&B style. Breakfast consists of a self-service continental selection plus a served hot choice to suit the pace of early risers/speedy exiters/holiday vibers, normally 8.00-9.30 (Mon. - Fri.) & 8.30-10.00 (Sat. & Sun.), however on request breakfast can be arranged from 7.00 if required (and requested in advance) or served as brunch.

Otros aspectos destacables

Two dogs and a cat live on the premises. They reside in the family areas and therefore your paths are unlikely to cross in the B&B (they are kept out of the guest areas and strictly out of the kitchen during all food preparation, cooking and serving times). However all three pets have access to the outside space. If you have a pet allergy/sensitivity or you're just not an animal lover please let me know in advance so that I can ensure they are not likely to be around the car park on your arrival or when you go out (they won't be offended and I'd much rather you were comfortable). Otherwise, if you do fancy partaking in some dog walking just say the word and two willing guides will be at your side before you can stuff the poo bags in your pockets!

Wonderful accommodation & place to stay, nothing to fault. It is a tranquil oasis & we felt very relaxed & chilled, felt that we had stayed for more than 2 nights. Great breakfast with fab quality cooked options. Lovely extra touches like dressing gowns & toiletries. Also wonderfully large, comfy bed & beautiful quality bedding, we slept really well. Goes without saying they are lovely hosts as well, there if needed but also felt we had our own private place. This was our 1st airbnb experience & based on this won't be our last!

Thank you so much Sophie for your lovely feedback, much appreciated. Really glad to hear you both felt suitably rested & restored, great. And thanks for reminding me to mention walking opportunities in the description, especially in the Quantocks. Hope to see you both again sometime, and maybe with your daughter next time now the next-door Cottage Room is available?

She is an excellent cooker, Breakfast is always prepared with love in accordance with the wishes of the guest. the room is arranged with taste, bright, spacious enough.I am very grateful to Jill for her warm reception and assistance in all matters.

Very pleased to hear you both enjoyed your stay and thank you for the wonderful comments. It was a pleasure, and great to have a real mill affectionado come to visit. I learned a lot about the intricacies of the mechanisms and their role in the milling process. Pity I now can't remember any of it. A return is now compulsory so I can write things down! xx

I always aim to offer guests the kind of stay that I myself like to enjoy when I go away - flexible guest-friendly hospitality and a warm relaxed home-from-home welcome.
