What Propology love about The Woodmill and the location:

We absolutely love the original features at The Woodmill mixed in with the contemporary twists, everything has been done so sympathetically to the heritage of the cottage and all the features have been enhanced by some of the modern fixtures and fittings. The natural light and access to the outdoors from so many of the rooms is so lovely too and we can’t get enough of this tranquil setting. This is a Propology dream cottage and to put it simply, we just love everything about it!
