About the Owner

We have lived at Millstone Cottage since 2006, and whilst doing up our house decided to renovate our disused garage in to a holiday cottage to allow others to enjoy our beautiful space. We love living here, and hope that you enjoy staying in the cottage. Niall and I have a passion for horses and horse racing, and so we usually have a few horses in the fields, whether they be ex racehorses looking to start their new life, or current racehorses having a holiday. We aim to provide a friendly, relaxing environment for you to enjoy your holiday
