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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
