Assington Mill - Mill Cottage
We have a beautiful cottage in the farmyard complex, which has a double bedroom and sitting room upstairs, and a kitchen/hall and wetroom downstairs. The boiler room can also be used as a drying room. The building used to be part of the mill, maybe the office, and was converted in 2008. It is heated by a ground source heat pump, which takes heat from the earth, and has a woodburning stove for extra cosiness.
