About Old Mill Cottage

A gorgeous picture-book 15th-century cottage set in woodland on the Brockhampton Estate.

Sitting pretty in a romantic woodland garden, accessed only by a wooden footbridge over a stream, is this dreamy chocolate box cottage. With its rose-clad walls and small peeping windows, Old Mill Cottage feels like a fairy-tale hideaway. It dates back to the 15th-century and retains many original features inside. Step through its red wooden door and you’ll be greeted with a warming inglenook fireplace, rustic exposed beams and old quarry tiling. There are two bedrooms upstairs that feel exceptionally cosy with their small peeping windows.   

You’ll be in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside on the Brockhampton estate, surrounded by sweeping parklands and magical woodlands. As a guest you’re invited to explore the main medieval manor house of the estate, Lower Brockhampton, free of charge. 

Bromyard is only 2 miles from the cottage and is a market town with heart, with many festivals and events through the year.  Further afield, you can explore the Malvern Hills AONB with beautiful views of the local area, or the pretty Georgian canal town Stourport-On-Seven, with shops, cafes, pubs and boats to hire.  Within easy distance is also historic Worcester City, the home of eclectic and vintage tastes where you can also explore a deep history going back to medieval times.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
