Millers Cottage at Claythorpe

Welcome to our gorgeous, riverside holiday cottage in the grounds of Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens. The cottage stands right on the riverside, adjacent to the watermill with its fabulous on-site café and sleeps four comfortably in its two bedrooms. The grounds of the mill are open to the public from 10am to 5pm 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 patio leads directly onto the wildfowl garden, where ducks, storks and exotic wild birds wander freely. The meerkat enclosure is right there (you can watch them from your bedroom windows) and 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 cottage stands right in the centre of the grounds, but 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 fully equipped kitchen with full-size fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer, double oven, ceramic hob, microwave, kettle and toaster. The lounge opens onto a lovely conservatory with seating for four, while 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 an integrated DVD player in bedroom two) DAB clock radios and full-size wardrobes. The shower room has loo, basin and a large (1.2m) built-in shower cubicle with electric shower.
