Miller’s Cottage at Claythorpe Watermill

Miller's CottageOne of the loveliest holiday cottages in Lincolnshire

Miller’s Cottage is our gorgeous, self-catering holiday cottage by the river in the grounds of Claythorpe Watermill. We think it’s one of the loveliest holiday cottages in Lincolnshire.

For the best prices, always book with us direct, or call 01507 451366. This self-catering cottage near Alford, Lincolnshire, stands right by the river, adjacent to the watermill. Completely renovated in 2017, it sleeps four comfortably. The mill’s grounds are open to the public from March to October. Outside of public opening hours, you have this wonderful visitor attraction to yourself (apart from owners Rebecca and Mike and their family who will do all they can to make you welcome).

The private garden area leads directly onto the bird garden, where friendly ducks and geese wander freely. It’s a joy to sit with a glass of wine and watch the birds settle for the night as the sun goes down. The holiday cottage stands right in the centre of the grounds, and we’ve worked hard to keep the cottage private from visitors to the attraction, with front and rear gardens that maintain a comfortable distance from day visitors.

We hope we’ve thought of everything. The open plan lounge/kitchen includes reclaimed oak floor, leather sofa, digital TV, DVD player, and full kitchen with fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer dryer, double oven, ceramic hob, microwave, kettle and toaster. The lounge opens onto a lovely conservatory with seating for four, and the kitchen opens onto a small dining area with a table made from the reclaimed beams from the cottage.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and shower room. Bedroom one has a king-size double, while bedroom two has twin 3-foot single beds. Tranquil and beautiful, both bedrooms include goose feather and down duvets and pillows, hotel-quality bed linen, a flat screen TV (with a DVD player in bedroom two) DAB clock radios and wardrobes. The shower room has loo, basin and a large (1.2m) built-in shower cubicle with electric shower.

You’ll always get the best deal by booking direct instead of  through an online agent where they always charge commission.
