About the property

Fladbury Mill - a house that sleeps 7 guests in 4 bedrooms

Welcome to Fladbury Mill, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.



Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Fladbury Mill is a stunning, grade II listed mill, idyllically located on the banks of the River Avon, within 12 acres of beautiful gardens and meadows. The oldest part of the mill dates back to the 17th century, with the remainder of the property dating from the early 18th century. The owners of Fladbury Mill, who live in separate accommodation at the property, have lovingly restored the water wheel and the turbine at the mill, and this provides a significant proportion of the electricity used on the site. Fladbury Mill is located in the ancient village of Fladbury, in the peaceful Vale of Evesham, just two miles to the north of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare.

In addition to the water wheel and the turbine, the mill has many character features, including oak floors, wooden beams and antique furniture. The character of the property is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, three flatscreen TVs and a contemporary kitchen.

The mill sleeps a maximum of seven people, in four bedrooms, with two family bathrooms. Off street parking is available and there is a large garden, with the mill stream running through it. Fladbury Mill is an ideal retreat for families or a group of friends, looking for a peaceful getaway.

House Rules

Flood risk

The property is located on the banks of the River Avon, in an area that occasionally experiences temporary flooding. It is therefore possible that, on rare occasions, access to the property may not be possible, in which case the owners would have to cancel any bookings at the property. A full refund would be provided in such exceptional circumstances.

Arrival and departure days

Standard arrival days are Fridays and Mondays, with standard holiday durations being:

three night weekends commencing on a Friday;

four day mid-week breaks commencing on a Monday;

week long breaks commencing on either a Friday or a Monday.

Flexible arrival and departure days may be possible - please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).


The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is seven guests (including infants in cots), at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than seven guests at the property.


Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

The property has free wireless internet access and three Freeview TVs, with a DVD player in the living room.

There is no telephone at the property and guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be very poor within the property. The signal is generally better outside, in the garden.


The property has off-street parking for three cars in the allocated parking space.


The holiday home is a large portion of the mill, with the remainder of the property comprising of the owners' accommodation and the working water wheel and turbine. The holiday home is entirely self-contained, with its own entrance and large gardens. By arrangement, the owners are happy to give guests a tour of the water wheel and turbine, which they restored and maintain themselves.

Guests have the right to fish from the mill pond garden of Fladbury Mill in the official fishing season only (mid June - mid March). A fishing licence is required.

Initial consumables

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety

Guests should be aware that the fast flowing and deep River Avon flows through the garden of the property. There are no barriers between the garden and the river, and the wooden jetty can be slippy, therefore all guests should take great care near the river. Children should be carefully supervised at all times, when outdoors.

This is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including low beams and doors, and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.


No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Hen, Stag and other same sex groups

Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at Fladbury Mill. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.


In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Interesting property in a lovely situation

  • 2 of 5

Not an ideal place to stay when the weather is cold, lack of double glazing made the bedrooms in particular very cold. The kitchen was well equipped but the rest of the property was a bit tired and not very comfortable. The situation of the property is very pretty and the owners are very helpful..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about Fladbury Mill. Heating is provided 24 hours and is kept at a constant temperature. On arrival guests are shown around the property and are asked if they feel happy with the heating and this can be adjusted if needs be. As this is a Grade II listed property, we are not able to install double glazing but we do make every effort to make sure the house in comfortable. We are pleased that you enjoyed the location and it was a pleasure having you to stay.

Other Activities:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Car: Fladbury is easily accessible by car, being located approximately 10 miles away from the M5 and 24 miles away from the M40.

Train: The nearest railway stations to Fladbury are Evesham and Pershore (approximately four miles away), which have regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 110 minutes (from Evesham).

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 35 miles, approximately 50 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 93 miles, approximately 120 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 70 miles, approximately 90 minute drive.
