Midsummer Mill


There has been a Mill on the site for almost 700 years and this enchanting bolthole transports one back to a simpler time, albeit with an indoor heated swimming pool.

Midsummer Mill, formerly known as Midsummer Wood, an enchanting and romantic former mill house, whose site dates back to the 14th Century, is found at the end of a single track lane set on the River Windrush in a sleepy, sunny hollow that teems with wildlife and is silence except for this; a bucolic bolthole that transports one back to a simpler time.

But Bourton-on-the-Water is an almost all footpath/bridleway walk so plenty of amenities are almost on the doorstep without you having to touch your car; in fact Midsummer Mill is connected via paths and byways to many of the prettiest Cotswold villages, including the famous Slaughters.

The hand-painted Mark Wilkinson kitchen is equipped with a Miele fridge-freezer, a dishwasher, large and small ovens and a microwave, a Nespresso machine as well as providing blenders, juicers and mixers etc. so you should not want for anything in the kitchen department. There is, of course, a washing machine as well as a tumble dryer.

There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, one is the master king bedroom with en suite bathroom with bath, shower/steam room and twin sinks, the second is a Queen bedroom with en suite bathroom with a bath and overhead shower. The two twin bedrooms – one with twin double beds – are on the second floor that share a family bathroom with bath and overhead shower. The fifth, en-suite, bedroom is a ground floor bedroom and is next to the detached self-contained guest cottage and is accessed from the garden. The guest cottage has two ground floor bedrooms and is available at a supplemental charge if required however Midsummer Mill is only available to rent for up to 12 people, excluding infants in cots.

Children are very welcome and the house comes equipped with a cot – travel/folding type – and a high chair however children must be supervised around the river and the mill race as whilst shallow and in the main slow flowing neither are fenced.

There is private parking for four cars and if required you can land a helicopter on the property by prior arrangement.
