Perfect place for a non-beach holiday!
5 / 5 Excellent
The Old Mill was the perfect size for 14 of us (grandparents, two families, unmarried daughter and boyfriend). The facilities and equipment are ample and generous. The lounge is a lovely room for everyone to come together. There are flowers everywhere outside the property, which is attractively built in local stone, and apparently goes back to 1790. The one tricky feature is the original mill spiral staircase, but you soon get used to it. There's a lot of history locally - I hadn't realized that Florence Nightingale's home was literally opposite the end of our road; and the Arkwright miles are just a couple of miles away - but you're close to lots of key attractions, which the green, lush Derbyshire countryside hides away in the background very effectively. All of us, from 3 years old to 73, had a brilliant time, and the care and pride of the owners in their property contributed significantly to that. (As did the homemade chocolate cake which they presented us with...!)
