Tinhay Mill had a welcoming, charming atmosphere with a log fire in the lounge designated for guests. Stephen and Suzanne were very friendly, attentive and cheerful, serving a generous breakfast including juice, fresh berries, delicious homemade compote, muesli and cereals etc. The cooked breakfast was substantial and prepared to a high standard. The hosts were rightly proud of Tinhay Mill...

I can't fault the service that we received. You can tell that the owners are proud and passionate about this place. So much character and quirkiness.
