  • “The Mill is a relaxing place to be, a home from home.”

    There are lovely grounds to wander in. The geese are a delight to see and feed. The views from the Mill are lovely. The welcome hamper is generous. Jane and Allan are perfect hosts, always adding to the wonderful experience of Grafton Mill. There’s a newly built gazebo to enjoy, sit there and enjoy surroundings or read or perfect for drinks and nibbles. There are many places nearby to visit National Trust, Farm Shops, Craft Shops, lovely towns, cathedrals and beautiful countryside to enjoy ...
