About the Owner

Louise and Steve French run Burcott Mill Guesthouse, the adjacent Victorian Flour Watermill and the self catering apartment. They bought the business in October 2009, after a life changing decision to leave their demanding corporate jobs, to bring up their children in the country. With 2 small children (Tamsin aged 8 and Daniel aged 6) life is never dull.
