Great property, great location.
We were looking for a large property within reasonable strikeing distance of family in Rotherham in order to attend an 18th birthday party. Instead of taking several rooms in one of the usual generic hotels, we opted for something a little different and found it here. The Mill is full of charm and character and it's location in Tickhill is spot on. Yes, things are a little creaky. Yes, things could be improved a little in some areas but, in all honesty, I could pick holes in a newly built property let alone one hundreds of years old. A few things need freshening up a little but, on the whole, it's a great place to stay. Would I recommend it? Definitely. Would I stay there again? Oh yes.

Don?t book this property
We booked this property described as being of exceptional standard and quality. Yes TERRIBLE. The property is misrepresented in the advertisement and is in its current state an unsafe property to be let to up to 10 tenants. I5 is difficul5 to know where to start. The property is very tired in many areas, faulty dishwasher door needs to be wedged shut to run. Underfloor heating in kitchen does not work. Kitchen is poorly equipped . Fire risk. No obvious fire extinguishers, fire blanket or smoke detectors. CO monitors but just sitting on a shelf not fixed. Windows upstairs do not open so you woulD be trapped upstairs of a fire. The gas combii boiler did not appear to have a current Corgi certificate. All these defects we found have been reported before in fact well over a year ago but have not been attended to. I could go on with defects / problems but suffice to say this property needs a major overhaul before it should be let again as a holiday property

This is a really lovely holiday cottage for a group to enjoy, I would definitely go back.
We were a group of eight adults who thoroughly enjoyed our stay for a week at New Year. There are big communal areas which could easily accommodate a full compliment of 10 adults (and dog!) and meant that some people could watch a film in one place while others read quietly elsewhere. You could do short country walks straight from the door and the village itself is lovely and very well serviced with pubs, restaurants, butchers and other shops. We set up the Z bed in the sun room which was comfy and cosy for a week. The bathrooms were nicely done and well proportioned. The kitchen is a good size with a great oven and plenty of food storage and worktop space for preparing big meals - we found no problem with the fridge which we were a little worried about beforehand because of other reviews. Angie was really helpful and nice to deal with and filled me in on local info it was useful to know. Overall, we all really enjoyed our week at the Watermill in Tickhill and would heartily recommend it.

Mini break with friends
Stayed here for 6 nights at the beginning of Dec. There were 7 of us staying in the property. We had a wonderful time here, the property was old and quirky but everything was provided to make our stay enjoyable. I loved the bathrooms , especially the bath in the main bathroom. Loved the village and duck pond. Would definitely stay here again.

Not as described.
The property is lovely and unusual, with beautiful views of the river and clean, however it is not as it has been described. The bedrooms are small, not a problem but, the beds are either standard doubles 4ft 6 or 4ft (only suitable for one person). The 10th bed is a z bed in the lounge. There are two not three bathrooms, the third is just a sink and toilet. The shower in the main bathroom is only a shower hose on the bath. The only proper shower is the en suite and even though the bathroom is large, the shower is small. The garden is only an enclosed courtyard so not really suitable for dogs. We were a party of 5 people and a dog, so it was ok for us, but I would not recommend it for more than 8 people maximum, of which some should be children. Should not be described as luxury in my opinion.
