Special to Watermill Cottage

The cottage sits on the edge of the mill race near to the historic Grade II listed watermill where a mill was recorded back in the Domesday Survey of 1086.  The huge mill wheel is still turning and the mill still produces stone-ground wholemeal flour.

This very peaceful spot on the edge of Crakehall is great for spotting kingfishers from the sitting room window, or watch the moorhens on the millpond.  Nearby is an idyllic village green with cricket pitch.

Many guests return again and again to enjoy the cottage and local area in different seasons.  Contact us direct for more information on Mill Open Days and Tours.
