My name is Katy and my family and I bought The mill 5 years ago. When we fell in love with not only The Mill but the South hams area in general. We have had many happy days at the Mill with our young children. We love the countryside, the peace , the seaside and the great outdoors. It has truly been a haven to us and we have made so many happy memories there as a family. We usually live in Berkshire but still escape down to Devon at every opportunity. I hope you love the Mill as much as we do and it gives you as many special memories
