This unusual detached watermill sleeps nine people in five bedrooms in the small village of Tickhill.

The Watermill is a Grade II listed property overlooking the millpond in the small village of Tickhill. The property has a double and a single downstairs, and three doubles upstairs, one of which has an en-suite shower room. There is a family bathroom upstairs, and a ground floor cloakroom. The fitted kitchen, sitting room with dining area, sun room and study are all on the ground floor, with a large sitting room with open fire on the first floor. Outside is off road parking for two cars, and a decked courtyard with waterfall tumbling under the deck. From The Watermill it is easy to enjoy the village's amenities, walks into open countryside, or hop in the car and head to the Peaks, Sherwood Forest, or visit the cities or Sheffield, Leeds or York.


Loved the quirky nature of the place and the fact that there were plenty of rooms to relax in. Tickhill is also a lovely place to explore.

The property was amazing, the location was amazing and the owner was very helpful.

We have just returned from a short break at the Watermill. The location by the Mill Pond is lovely and the small town of Tickhill offers all amenities. The property was adequate but needs several improvements to bring up to the standard expected of holiday rentals . The ground floor bedroom although sold as a double has a bed next to a wall , somewhat difficult for the older couple . The single bedroom has a put you up type of bed and also houses the central heating boiler which is noisy. Lighting in the downstairs dining area is dismal , and depressive . The kitchen is poorly equipped, teapot with cracked lid , no can opener , mismatch of wine glasses , shelf missing from refrigerator , poor selection of bowls , no handle for grill pan etc Very poor towels supplied , would have preferred to have taken my own . The bathrooms were very good and appeared to have been recently refurbished.

Fab house for a break with family or friends. Five bedrooms and many rooms to sit and chat. Outside decking area with water trickling under. No actual garden other than this but fab scenery, grass, pond, walks for dogs. Village great with every shop, pub, restaurant you need. Try Roccos Italian as delicious.

i've just returned from a two night break at the Watermill Cottage, Tickhill. Th watermill is on the side of a village pond, which is as quaint as you could possibly get. The House boasts five bedrooms 3 doubles upstairs one ensure and a bathroom, one double and a single downstairs. I was staying in the middle bedroom the bed was comfy and cosy, however a curtain at the window would have been nice, but I improvised with a throw so that wasn't too much of a problem. The house is unique and artefacts from the old mill remain in the house which adds to the character. The outside seating area is nice but could do with a sweep and tidy up and remove the old candles. The rooms are very functional and plenty of different areas to relax. My only criticism would be that as this is an old building and has lots of ornaments and pictures etc., these are hard to,clean and do collect dust, having said that the bed linen and bathrooms were clean, as was the kitchen area. The village of Tickhill is lovely and some nice shops and restaurants for a short break this base is ideal.
