A peaceful old mill with a beautiful terrace overlooking the water, for delicious local food; try the Creedy Carver free-range duck

Another wormhole back to old England, a 400-year-old mill on Avon Water with mallards, lampreys and Indian runners to watch from the terrace in summer. The house stands in three acres of gardens that are filled with art and beautiful things. Inside, cosy interiors mix old and new delightfully: low ceilings, wonky walls, busts and mirrors, smouldering fires. Colour tumbles from pretty fabrics, there's a panelled bar for pre-dinner drinks, and watery views. Downstairs, the beautifully refurbished restaurant continues to draw a happy crowd for its delicious local food, perhaps wild mushroom ravioli, Creedy Carver free-range duck, blackberry soufflé with apple crumble ice cream. The forest and coast are both on your doorstep.

"In August we spent three nights at The Mill at Gordleton, which we loved. We did have one of the suites, which was well worth it with a view over the river and somewhere to sit. We ate in each of the three nights and the dinners were excellent."

"We have just returned from The Mill after a 2 night stay. We were very very impressed with everything. Lovely rooms and bathrooms. Excellent breakfast and a superb dinner Monday night. The staff were exceptionally nice and the gardens were just lovely. Super place, highly recommended. "

"Just spent 4 days here. Delightful place set in beautiful gardens with intriguing sculptures. The service was superlative – all of the staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful. I have seldom felt so well ‘looked after’."
