The Mill House


The Mill House is a 17th Century Grade II Listed country home B&B, located in the peaceful hamlet of Rickford, North Somerset.

Being nestled in the northern foothill of the Mendip Hills AONB, they have over 200km2 of walking and cycling routes, paths and trails quite literally on their doorstep, just waiting to be explored.

Offering up to 4 rooms, providing comfortable accommodation for up to 12 persons at any one time in lightly furnished rooms. It draws on the natural character of the property but still provides you with the homely touches you would expect to find in a house like this. Please contact them for current availability.

Each room is accompanied by its own large private bathroom, and views overlooking the front lawns, or the woodland area surrounding the side and rear of the property.

Bookings include: a hearty, filling cooked to order English Breakfast (vegetarian and vegan options available) in addition to continental breakfast options, parking, use of their fibre broadband and access to the shared sitting room, breakfast room and gardens.

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in every room. Their beds are fitted with Elite hotel linen and guests are provided with a bundle of 100% cotton towels to use.

Guests are kindly advised that they have a resident house cat here at The Mill House, though she does not have access to guest rooms – if you or any member of your party has an unmanageable allergy to cats/pets, they politely suggest that you seek alternative accommodation.

Dogs are considered upon request – please contact them to discuss the option of bringing your pet with you.

They welcome group booking enquiries.
