Gardens of Parish Mill

Two nights for 2 people in Mill Garden Lodge, a beautifully renovated lodge set within the gardens of Parish Mill,  Parish Mill was formally one of the most important watermills in Gloucestershire and produced flour until the end of 1946 and still retains its waterwheel. Mill Cottage, also within its gardens, dates back to the 17th century and was a grain storage barn for the Mill.  Parish Mill and the lodge sit in beautiful grounds of approx. 7 acres with its own access and sweeping driveway.  A babbling stream meanders through the estate with large willow trees along its bank. Guests will have full use of the gardens. Owners Tracey and David provide a warm welcome and the lodge is very close by to Harts Barn Cookery School.

Mill Garden Lodge is located just outside the picturesque village of Longhope, where you can find a Post Office, General Store and local freshly made bread, croissants and cakes from the Bakery.
