We have lived in Maiden Law for 4 years and run our graphic design company from a studio built in the garden.


Our idea to renovate the house next door into a self catering property, was born out of wanting to share the beautiful surrounding area with others. The house was built in 1850 and has been totally renovated to create a warm and comfortable holiday home.


Millfield House was named after we researched the old land registry plans and found the property was built on land formerly known as Millfield.


Although we live and work next door, you will hardly know we are there, unless of course you need us. However you may see Coco our friendly dog popping her head over the fence once in a while to say hello!


Thanks for looking at the website, hopefully we'll see you soon.
