Sat on the edge of a UNESCO World Heritage City, the idyllic Midford Valley is home to a rich array of flora and fauna, but is also home to the tiny hamlet of Tucking Mill. Here you will discover a selection of luxury self-catering properties, including Tucking Mill View, a welcoming stone cottage with open-plan living space and inviting electric wood-burning stove.
The region takes its name from the original site of an old mill that once stood on the site. Here wool would undergo a ‘tucking process to cleanse the material and henceforth the name was passed on in tribute to the foundations from which it was built. Newly renovated this charming property has since gone on to gain a 4 Star Gold Award for Exceptional Accommodation and Welcome by Visit England.
Perfectly situated on the cusp of the city, holiday-makers can relax in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, knowing that Bath’s bustling centre is merely a 15 minute drive away. Once settled in to your accommodation, you may want to consider a visit to the nearby Hope and Anchor in Midford, within easy walking distance. Enjoy a hearty meal or unwind with a few drinks before catching the bus into town on the 267, which departs from the door of the pub.
No one would blame you for staying at home though, to enjoy the elegant interiors of the cottage and its private terrace. Maximise this outdoor space by cooking up a storm on the BBQ or having a go at fly-fishing on the Midford Brook which meanders its way through the bottom of the garden. Having watched the sunset between the trees, settle down in the comfort of the luxury 1200 pocket sprung king-sized bed and Egyptian cotton bed linen for a cosy and comfortable night’s sleep.
If you want to explore more of the natural surroundings, you will also find that the cottage has been awarded the ‘Cyclist’s Welcome’ and ‘Walker’s Welcome’ awards, with cycle storage and facilities for drying clothes. Choose from a delightful selection of country walks and cycle routes all accessible from your doorstep, including the Sustrans Route 24. No matter how you plan to spend your holiday, you can relax in the knowledge that everything is covered. To reserve your exclusive stay at Tucking Mill View click here.
