The kitchen/diner is simply gorgeous and a great space for socialising.
Relaxing in this bedroom will be a pure delight.
The gardens at The Old Mill are beautifully unspoilt. Feel free to explore and you may spot some local wildlife.

The stunning sitting-room is on the first floor.
Plan your Dorset adventures on the map!
From the ground floor and first floor you can see all the original mill workings - how unique!
This Mediterranean-style, under cover seating-area is yours to enjoy. A perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks.
Switch off and relax in the super-stylish sitting-room that has views out over the countryside.
A modern and luxurious en suite shower-room.

Super-soft linens and throws make a cosy sanctuary.
The Old Mill is full of beautiful features that blend history with modern living.
Even the ground floor WC is gorgeous.
Kitchen/diners don't come much better than this; beautifully equipped with everything you could need, including a wine fridge.
A special place at night too!
The driveway entrance to The Old Mill (signed Metford Mill).
Your private balcony awaits where you can sit and enjoy uninterrupted views across the peaceful grounds.
Situated a little distance from the side of The Old Mill is this pretty pond (please take care with younger guests and dogs). You'll be sure to spot the colourful dragonflies here.
These original external steps are quite steep so please take care and use the rope handrail. The area you can see on the left-hand side, at the top of the steps, is not enclosed so please be mindful not to go too close to the edge.
Keep an eye out for this sign on the road which is at the entrance of the driveway down to The Old MIll.
Although in the grounds of the owners' house, The Old Mill is completely separate ensuring your privacy.
Up this slight incline and to the right is the parking area.
Rural Dorset is so peaceful and attractive, you'll leave wanting to return time and time again.
The stunning Jurassic Coast is just a short drive away.
