Quick review on
Both Mill Cottage and Mill Garden Lodge are built with local forest stone and have been beautifully decorated throughout. Mill Cottage dates back to the 17th century and was the original grain storage barn for Parish Mill, our family home since 2014.The Mill was formerly one of the most important watermills in Gloucestershire and produced flour until the end of 1946. (Parish Mill still retains its waterwheel)
Both properties have their own private garden area with table and chairs and the use of a BBQ, along with shared use of a further 7 acres of carefully maintained gardens and pasture. Baynam brook flows through the estate with a large willow tree along the bank creating a very tranquil setting.
We are located just outside the picturesque village of Longhope, on the outskirts of the Forest of Dean, & Wye Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The village of Longhope has a wealth of activities including a Cookery School, Battlesports, Clay Pigeon Shooting and visits to our local Brewery.
There are castles to explore, trekking, cycling and Go Ape in the ancient Forest of Dean and kayaking down the River Wye.
We are in the perfect location to visit the historic market towns of Ross on Wye and Monmouth, with the City of Gloucester just 10 minutes’ drive away. Slightly further afield are Cheltenham Spa, Bath Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham.
