How lovely

Mill House
14th June 2021. Gorgeous site in a wonderful part of our Country. Ann and Colin are wonderful hosts who could not be any more helpful if they tried. Look out for the blackboard which may advise of a fire pit night. A delightful opportunity to, in our case (socially distanced), meet your hosts and fellow guests. Lots to see and explore nearby, even a great barber nearby if you forget your trimming gear! Will be back again soon.

Great peaceful break

Mill House
Visited weekend of 9th May and stayed on the hardstanding pitch. Fantastic views over the fields and valley. Lambs aplenty and all you can hear is the birds! Great warm welcome from both Colin and Ann, who couldn't be more helpful. Colin gave us great local knowledge to cycle peaceful lanes. Thank you very much - we had a great time Sarah and Annie x

Nice site owners quite selfish

Mill House
We stayed at Mill House in Mid May 2021, The site is a very nice location and is very peaceful but some of the facilities need attention. The toilet Elsan disposal needs attention, The cast iron grate over the drain is jus a piece of rope and the area is a trip hazard. For anyone who has poor mobility or a bad back lifting the grate is problematic and potentially dangerous. It needs a wall around the hole and easily removable lid. The owner turns the water off at night so if you want to empty your Elsan after 7pm you can't do it effectively. The ruling about not having general waste due to Covid is a red herring as the Moores are quite happy collecting recyclable waste and which is far more likely to have viable virus on it's surface than food is especially on things like plastic metal and glass which they will have to touch it to collect it, whereas if they had disposal bins they wouldn't have to go near them as they would be collected by the refuse collection. I suspect it has more to do with not wanting to pay for business refuse collection and getting away with a residential service. The most displeasing thing however was the mains supply was defective which the owner rigged up and extension to get the supply to my van. Both myself and my friend are both electrical engineers diagnosed the RCD had failed we offered to repair it for Mr Moore and even told him which one to get from the supplier we dully fixed it for him which for us was a 5 minute job however if he had to pay a call out for an electrician it would have been well over £75. We didn't ask for specific payment but knocking £7.50 each of our bill was derisory.

Tranquility personified.

Mill House
This site is a gem and at £14 a night unbelievable value. Well manicured field set with a superb rural setting. The hedgerows had blackberries and hazelnuts. The birdlife is second to none: Buzzard, swallow and house martins overhead and my bird feeders attracted: Siskin, Marsh Tit, Nuthatch, Coal Tit, Woodpecker, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Sparrow, Blue Tit, Great Tit. Colin has put a tree house in a small copse of fir trees. The owners, Colin and Ann, are attentive to everyone as well as the site which has looked beautiful through our visits this year - a two week stay and a one week stay - the dahlia beds have been stunning. I fail to see how anyone could grade this site at less than five stars as it is the epitome of quality CLs. Yes you could go for a sophisticated site and be parked close together and pay £30 a night but why do you want a communal shower block when your van is fitted out to modern standards. My shower is private and COVID free. Electric posts are first class modern safe Caravan Club standard. Fresh water and chemical points have sanitiser provided. Using the site last year we were grateful for Colin and his tractor as we had risked a late autumn break and needed a tug to move us off pitch. Walking the headland we went past a large commercial site - outfits, tents and caravans jostling for space with neighbours’ BBQ and children prime for you to trip over. Mil House has space and tranquility offering a therapeutic vacation. Incidentally, walking from the site offers many options within naturalistic surroundings. Congratulations to Ann and Colin for this beautiful tranquility.

Really loving site

Mill House
Wow, what a lovely site. This site is really beautiful. Very well maintained with lovely views. Ann and Colin are really welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Bridport is approx 2.5 miles so a perfect location to visit the area. There is also Mangerton Mill which is not even 5 mins walk away. There is a cafe, craft shops and a lovely lake to walk around. Perfect site for either site seeing or just for getting away from it all. We will be back!
