Absolutely fabulous holiday ?cottage?
This ?cottage? is a water mill, lovingly renovated by the owners. On arrival, we were greeted by the owners, who briefly explained all there was to know about our accommodation for the week. The mill has everything that you need, including a lovely welcome pack. The resident ducks greeted us every morning, hoping for some bread . The location is just outside Worcester, and is very close to the Cotswolds. I would not recommend for families with young children, as the stairs are quite steep and there is a lot of open water. We would highly recommend this holiday let for families with older children or couples, looking for a quiet break The owners have built a new seating area for guest use only, as pre pandemic, guests would share their area, this was lovely, we collected an afternoon tea from the pub in the village on our day of arrival, it was lovely sitting outside, next to the mill pond in the sunshine

A cottage with a difference.
We booked this for April, but lockdown prevented us from going, so we rebooked for October, however our family from Switzerland were still unable to travel, and we were all so looking forward to a break, so we ended up here as a couple on our own. We have not been disappointed, the mill has been renovated beautifully, keeping many of it's historical features intact. The owners live on site, and gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival despite the heavy rain, and the welcome pack provided more than enough to start your week. The cottage is seeped in history, warm, roomy yet still cosy, and has everything provided, and we only had to ask if we needed anything. Being laid out on three floors means stairs are involved so be aware if you are not used to them, it's all part of the lovely experience in this cottage. The views from the many and varied windows as you climb up the three floors are beautiful, the mill pond and stream on either side driving the water wheel, which is transferred as a delightful rotating feature into the kitchen, the wildlife is in abundance as you walk around the cottage grounds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to return with our family in the future, when things get back to normal.

Stunning location and outstanding property
We had the honour of being the first paying guests at Grafton Mill where we received a friendly greeting from the owners along with a lovely welcome hamper with bread, Prosecco and other goodies. The property is beautifully situated with stunning views across the surrounding duck ponds. We even spotted a family of deer trotting past the mill a couple of times. The location is fantastic, with just a 20 minute drive into the centre of Worcester and a 30-40 minute drive to the stunning Warwick Castle. If you're a National Trust member then there's plenty to see in the surrounding areas. We visited Packwood House, Baddesley Clinton, Hanbury Hall and Coughton Court during our stay, all truly beautiful locations and all within a half hour drive from the mill. There is also a lovely house and gardens on the way into Worcester that we would highly recommend. There are also pubs and a handy petrol station along the road on which the mill is situated, with around a mile walk/drive to each. Although if you are walking, take a torch as it gets very dark at night and the pavements are skinny. The Oak Pub has loads of character and a fantastic menu, perfect for a cheeky fry up in the mornings as it also offers a cafe with a brilliant selection of teas and coffees. Grafton Mill has absolutely everything you need for a cosy getaway, as a couple in our mid-twenties it was perfect for us. The mill has so much character, and if you're really quiet you can hear the gentle splashing of the water in the kitchen as the wheel rotates. The owners were very kind to stay in touch during our stay and let us know when they were and weren't available if we needed anything. We couldn't have asked for a better week away, and will definitely be considering Grafton Mill for a future holiday!
