We stayed at Millside to see the New Year in and it was absolutely lovely. We have a two year old and a six year old and both of them loved our stay. The accommodation has everything you need, so clean and new and easy to use. It was December when we stayed so it was cold outside but inside we were warm. You have everything you need in a small space and the view is just glorious! The games room at the back of the wigwams is brilliant fun and accommodates all ages, from little trucks and things to build, books, board games to play, pool table etc. I would highly recommend this as a peaceful retreat, so tranquil. We will be back!
We have just spent another short break at Millside Wigwams with Roxy our boxer dog and once again had a lovely relaxing time.
Over the last few years we have stayed in these cosy accommodations in over a dozen locations around the UK and Northern Ireland and these are amongst the best so far.
Admittedly they are still very new but they are pristine both inside and out.
Everything you need apart from bedding is there for you, all you need to bring is yourself, food and something to drink.
There is a fire pit and logs can be bought from Steve the owner.
There is also a large cabin onsite with a pool table, bar football table and comfy seating if you fancy a change of scenery.
As an added bonus is a nice dog friendly pub serving good food 10 minutes walk down the farm track, and other nice walks if you take your 4 legged friend.
We found that nothing was too much trouble for the owners Steve & Fiona who are only a phone call away.
We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Hopefully see you soon
My family (2x adults, 2x children and large dog) spent just one night here as a last minute getaway during half-term. Having only recently opened, we had the place to ourselves, which given the standard of accommodation and affordability is astonishing. It will only be a short-time until this place is solidly booked. Fiona and Steve were friendly and welcoming, it is clear that they have put a lot of thought (and investment) into this project, the wigwams are positioned in an arc to give privacy and make the most of the sun and views. It is incredibly quiet and peaceful, just the occasional sound of trains from the nearby East Coast mainline which the children found quite exciting (n.b this couldn't be heard with the doors closed). The small space is used efficiently and the large storage drawers beneath the beds and hooks next to the door allow everything to be put away avoiding clutter. The kitchenette is well equipped and I cooked a full breakfast with ease. We purchased a breakfast pack which was good value and excellent quality. There is a table for four which can be centrally positioned with room for all when the sofa-bed is in sofa position. The small TV has a full range of free view channels. 2 bowls, a mat and treats had been left out for the dog. The reception room has a good quality pool table and table football as well as a selection of well looked after toys, books and DVDs (puzzles with all the pieces!). We dined at the local pub (The Stag) which is about half a mile away, the food was excellent and again great value (£60 for four meals and drinks) and we were able to dine in the bar with our dog. The wigwam was incredibly warm, we put the heater on for a short-time in the evening, switching it off before the children went to bed. It was just 6 degrees but we all had to unzip our sleeping bags during the night! The beds were comfortable and we all slept well. Belton House (NT) is just a couple of miles down the road and is a fantastic day out with something for everyone. Highly recommended!
