Absolutely beautiful little cottage. We've just returned from a lovely week at Miller's Cottage opposite the Corn mill. David and Kathy are the perfect hosts, really hardworking couple who offer the best cream teas in the UK (top ten in the UK). The cottage is overlooking a stream from the patio and you can hear the stream running and it's so relaxing and pretty. Can't fault it, we had a perfect break and there are so many lovely places to visit in the area.Lisa, 25.08.2020
