Snugborough Mill, B and B in Blockley in the Cotswolds

A warm welcome awaits you at Snugborough Mill in Blockley, in the North Cotswolds, the family home of Rupert and Mandy Williams-Ellis and their two sons Matthew and Timothy.

Snugborough Mill is one of 12 mills in Blockley, sited on the spring fed Blockley brook. Over the years, it has had various functions, including use as a fulling mill, a corn mill, for silk throwing and electricity generation for the village. The earliest parts of the current buildings are believed to date back to around 1500, although they have been much altered since then. The mill has had a colourful history with links to Queen Elizabeth 1 and Shakespeare.

A major restoration of the property and grounds was carried out by Rupert and Mandy between December 2010 and August 2013. We now look forward to sharing with you the unique and homely atmosphere of the mill in its tranquil waterside setting. We are currently offering three ensuite double bedrooms for bed and breakfast guests, with breakfast served in a south facing garden room overlooking the millpond.

Guests are able to enjoy delightful walks round the 2.5 acre garden with gazebos, bridges and terraces from which to view the beautiful mill setting and the natural wildlife around the pond.
