Perfect relaxation in a beautiful house & gardens
Posted by Lesley & Barry
Spent a week staying at The Millhouse in celebrating two 60th birthdays within our family group of 14. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who even opened the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi early for us as we were lucky enough to have fabulous, warm spring weather! All bedrooms very comfortable & there is masses of space to spend time relaxing throughout the house and garden. We hired bikes for 5 days and the local cycling is leisurely and on very quiet roads. The highlight of the week was being catered for by local chef Sebastien's team on two separate evenings in the very large dining room - pure luxury!
Stunning house with friendly, helpful owners, great Jacuzzi and pool

Brilliant holiday with extended family aged 2-64 years. The Millhouse is a beautiful, comfortable house with plenty of space and lots of places to relax, eat and drink both inside and outside. Lovely pool and Jacuzzi. The owner helped for several months before we arrived with wonderful recommendations and bookings - loved the pain au raisins from Taillebourg, Le Scorlion in St Jean d'Angely, The Garden Ice Café and Clos de Cors in Saintes. Enjoyed the daily arrival of the boulangerie van bringing breakfast - and had 2 fantastic catered meals from Sebastien's team (again all sorted with Manisiah's help). Would love to visit again!
Thank you so much for being so attentive

Where do we start ! Our holiday has been fantastic from the minute we got to the Millhouse. Manisiah and Steve have been wonderful.
Our wedding was perfect and we couldn’t have found a more perfect setting. We couldn’t have done it without you. The house and grounds are beautiful, it definitely feels like home – we’re so sad to be leaving !
We recommend The Millhouse 100%

Thank you so much for making our daughter’s Wedding dreams come true. I must say we were completely nervous knowing she had booked a Wedding overseas and without seeing the venue, however can honestly say that the day was flawless and we would recommend you 100% to any couple wanting to tie the knot with you.
You were completely professional throughout their stay, extremely knowledgeable and are a real true asset to the Wedding business. Both Otto and I wish you the very best for your future.
We are looking forward to our next trip already !

Stuart & I had our wedding blessing at the Millhouse and we had a wonderful day & holiday. Attention to detail was fantastic and everything we could think of was available. Manisiah, Steve and Jenny were a great help in organising our blessing, liaising with suppliers and even decorating the mill & grounds. Thank you so much for your help, fantastic facilities and ‘can dp’ attitude !
We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

When we decided to hold our Wedding here with you all at the Millhouse, never did we believe the wedding would be so perfect, from the reception we all received on arrival, the personal touches, the catering, flowers, entertainment and the lovely celebrant we can honestly say we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
The venue, Steve and Manisiah as the owners and Jenny as the Wedding planner ensuring that we had the best suppliers available you all really pulled out all the stops to ensure everything was magical.
We are so appreciative you managed to get a supplier to erect a Mandap and the Indian feast we had was one of the best we have savoured – all these in France !
We shall cherish our stay with you all forever and hope dearly one day that we shall meet again.
All our guests want to come back !!
Posted by Mr & Mrs Lee Gover
Where do we begin? The venue is just gorgeous, everything we had hoped for and far, far more !
Steve & Manisiah you have gone above and beyond and this special occasion would not have been possible without you.
Everyone has complimented both yourselves and the house and grounds. We will never forget this truly magical occasion. Look forward to returning !!
Great attention to detail

Our heartfelt thanks to you all for making our Wedding day perfect. Having spent weeks searching for the right venue you really did pull out all the stops to ensure that we had the best day imaginable and we can’t thank you enough to this.
The attention to detail in the millhouse is first class, the hospitality we received was superb and not only did this make our Wedding stay extra special but every single one of our 90 guests wished they could have stayed longer.
We will be back, there’s no doubt about it and really look forward to seeing you all again.
The dream wedding
Posted by Anne & Lee
Both Lee and I want to thank you so much once again for everything you have done for us to make our dream Wedding come true. Many of the guests have already told us that this was by far the very best Wedding they had ever attended and I can truly say this has been down to you for making everything run so smoothly on the day.
I must apologise for being such a bridezilla, yet you seemed to take everything in your stride, even my panic phone call to you at midnight two nights before we arrived.
Jenny you were without a shadow of a doubt the best wedding planner we could have ever picked and words can’t express our heart felt thanks enough to you.
Please do stay in touch with us and we promise to send you a post card from Bali.
Loads of love
We would love to come back
Posted by Nikki & Paul
A massive thank you to you all for such a wonderful Wedding we had. We were overwhelmed by the luxury of the Millhouse and how you all made our day simply perfect. Our Wedding superseded any expectation we had and can’t thank you all enough. You all really gave us a 5* Wedding and we are so happy we chose to have our Wedding there with you. The food was exquisite, the music was perfect and the attention to detail throughout our stay – well what can we say. Thank you all so much and we would love to come back for an anniversary holiday in the very near future.
Can’t thank you all enough
Posted by Wendy and Peter Wong
Wendy and I can’t thank you all enough for such an amazing Wedding. The professionalism, the luxury and the warm approach from you all really made our Wedding at the Millhouse extra special.
The Wedding planning service was exceptional, nothing was missed and even though I am the most stressful person imaginable, Jenny made certain that the entire Wedding was stress free for us all and really pulled out all the stops to make our day magical. How on earth you manage to get a dragon dance organised for us is unbelievable ! Thank you all so much and thank you also to the suppliers who again were perfect.
You are worth your weight in gold thank you!
Posted by Ciara & Graham
I wanted to take a moment to drop you a short note to express once again our genuine and heartfelt thanks for everything you personally did to make the event an immense success. Your combination of professionalism, organisational prowess, 'can do' approach and personal warmth went a long way towards making the entire project enjoyable and that bit easier to manage.
When we arrived, you very much came into your own (not to mention all the pre-arrival work you undertook) and nothing seemed too much trouble from the important stuff (timing of the ceremony, making guests feel welcome, etc) to the mundane (My inability to open plugholes in baths without adult supervision springs to mind). We both came away feeling that you are worth your weight in gold.
I feel we should take you up on your offer to stop in for a coffee or a glass of wine when we are next in the region.
With a project as complex and as emotionally charged as a wedding, you personally delivered a flawless result for us and we are very grateful that you gave up that high paid job in Britain and chose to run a well-hidden (and very beautiful) wedding venue deep in the breathtaking French countryside. Until we meet again, best wishes to you for the future.
Best Wedding imaginable
Posted by Christine & Robert
Back to earth with a bump from what can only be described as the best Wedding imaginable. Our daughter and son in law were overwhelmed with everything you did for them.
Thank you all so so much for such a memorable stay. You should all be so proud of what you have achieved and the Millhouse really is a hidden gem.
Luxurious goes without saying, even to all the fine details and you should really promote your Weddings as nothing short of 5* luxury.
Continue the superb work and wishing you many many years of undoubted success.

A truly amazing venue !
Posted by Andrew & Martin
Thank you Jen, Manisiah & Steve. You gave us the most memorable wedding day with such a beautiful backdrop. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrive to the day we say our goodbyes. Ever so supportive and nothing was too small for us to request. You are the best and we could not ask for more. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you again !
Fairy tale wedding
Posted by Jo & Luke
Thank you so much for making our day the most wonderful day of our lives, it was perfect, just like a fairy tale…. Not only that, you made our whole stay at the Millhouse perfect. Right from the start you were all so helpful. I didn’t even know where to begin planning a wedding, maybe that’s why I kept putting it off but Jenny made me feel at ease throughout! Even from early Skype conversations, where you asked me what kind of wedding I had in mind, slowly piece by piece it came together. With your experience and knowledge, I discovered what was right for us and what wasn’t.
We wanted a smallish wedding with just 50 people but there was a part of me that was worried that I would regret that decision. That it would feel a little less special or spectacular, that it would miss the magic and ambiance that I wanted it to have. I need not have worried, the day had it all and more.
On the big day, we did not have a single problem. You ensured it ran smoothly and was stress free for us. My maid of honour was shocked at how relaxed I actually was! Everything was perfect, down to the smallest details. When we had a question you were there to answer it…. I cannot praise you all enough!!!
Our main advantage was not to have all of the guests on site with us, this made the whole experience even more personable and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get married – keep the Mill for just immediate family and friends.
Thank you all so much! I cannot praise and thank you the three of you enough….We wouldn’t change a single thing!!!
I wish you all every success for your future, as I am sure that you will make hundreds more brides the happiest in the world!!
Very best wishes,
Such an amazing place!
Posted by Vicki & Martin
Thank you very much for having us this weekend. You have all been fantastic. We were given such a warm welcome being collected at the airport. The Millhouse is such an amazing place we are both so glad we chose there to get married and between the 3 of you we couldn’t ask for anything more. We are super excited about April next year and can’t wait to see you guys again.
Once again Thank You, all our love Vikki and Martin

From all over the world we flew in this week (Netherlands, Hawaii, Curacao) to celebrate moms birthday. WE had a wonderful week at the mill. The house is lovely, very child friendly and has everything you need. Manisiah and Steve are wonderful ! We hired Harriet, a very professional photographer to make pictures of our family gathering which was a great success ! We are definitely dreaming to come back one day !
We have discovered a new holiday spot
Posted by Christopher B
We are thoroughly impressed and have enjoyed our stay at The Millhouse. We have discovered a new holiday spot and a magical coastline that has been a well kept secret in the area. Were looking forward to many more holidays and good times with our hosts Steve and Manisiah.
We would highly recommend the Millhouse
Posted by P. R
Were very impressed with the attention to detail in this property. The quality of fittings and furnishings were above expectations. We have spent a week as part of a group of 16 and everyone had ample room to relax and enjoy their stay. We would highly recommend the Millhouse as a first class holiday home

What a wonderful weekend. The house and setting is very special, we wish we could have stayed longer, but our time at the Millhouse will be fondly remembered by all.
We would certainly recommend
Posted by The Smith Family
We can only echo what other guests have said. This is a lovely house. The surrounding gardens are a pleasure, beautifully kept, and the pool area is fantastic. It is child friendly, but fun for adults, too. We would certainly recommend.
An absolutely fantastic house

An absolutely fantastic house, exceeded only by the welcome and friendly help throughout our say of Steve & Manisiah. We cannot praise the whole experience enough.
We are most certainly not lost for words
Posted by The Humans, The Cartons, The Carters
We are most certainly not lost for words ! We never felt alone, Manisiah and Steve were incredibly helpful in making us feel at home and offering invaluable local advice. What a wonderful holiday. We will never forget the beautiful setting, the fabulous food and wine and the fabulous company. Nothing could have topped it better than the engagement of my little sister. Brilliant. We can't wait for the wedding at The Millhouse.
The house and surroundings are beautiful.

We had a fantastic holiday with much to do and see. The house and surroundings are beautiful, and the hosts made sure we lacked nothing. Thank you for the conisderation you have
Posted by The Turkins, Glasses & Eliases
More than a luxurious manor house, we were hoping for a space where a family of 15 aged from 3- 73 could relax individually as well as come together as a family. The Millhouse enabled us to do all of that. The amenities are comprehensive and luxurious but the design and configuration of the space means a large and diverse group can relax and celebrate together. However the defining difference between The Millhouse and other places we have stayed is the passion and competence and hospitality of Steve and Manisiah. Thank you Manisiah and Steve and of course The Millhouse for a memorable Christmas.
An absolutely fantastic house
