Both Braunston Mill and Mill Cottage stand centrally in the very Heart of England and are located in Braunston, a delightful ancient village which is famed for its canals and is the place where the Oxford and Grand Union Canals join.
Both holiday cottages provide a very high standard of self catering accommodation and stylish setting whether you are looking for a short break or longer holiday. Mill Cottage is an ideal romantic retreat for couples and Braunston Mill is perfect for parties of up to six guests. Both can be hired separately or rented together for larger parties of eight. Both The Mill and Mill Cottage are located apart and afford a nice degree of privacy with each affording their very own hot tub to relax and unwind.
The canals formerly provided the main transport network and are still busy today with leisure boats. They are also popular with those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land offering pleasant walks along the towpath where you can wander past chandlers, boat builders and an old pump house where you will see narrow boats moored.
An attraction of the area not to be missed is Braunston Marina with its wonderful historic buildings and attractive boatyard - one of the UK's most impressive inland marinas that hosts the Narrow Boat Rally each year.
This beautiful area offers a vast array of things to see and do including: Stratford upon Avon (the birthplace of William Shakespeare) which is under thirty miles away and a pleasant car ride through wonderful country side; Warwick with its magnificent castle; Royal Leamington Spa, a vibrant town with galleries, boutiques, eating establishments and a number of golf courses for those who fancy a round. Alternatively, simply stay put and enjoy relaxing in the wonderful setting of Mill Cottage and enjoy leisurely days wandering to the local pubs and enjoying the local produce.
