Our favourite rooms
For 180º views downstream, book straight into the Lucom room. It’s a split-level timber-framed cabin on the rooftop that juts out over the front of the mill – definitely not one for vertigo sufferers. The bed seems to hover above a rich red carpet and original beams criss-cross the ceiling. The Mill Room is larger, with views across the Northamptonshire farmland and a free-standing Castello pebble bath beside the huge platform bed.
A head for heights if you’re booked into the Lucom, otherwise bring boots for walking, rods for fishing, and appetites for the good life.
Dogs are allowed in rooms and public areas (except the restaurant) for a £15 charge. Two-night minimum stay at weekends, three nights over bank holidays.
Free baby cots are available and extra beds are £25 a night. The Downstairs at the Mill restaurant has a kids’ menu.
