Loved the quirky nature of the place and the fact that there were plenty of rooms to relax in. Tickhill is also a lovely place to explore.

The house was beautiful, slept and housed all 10 of us comfortably. We had a lovely weekend and would recommend it highly!

An enigmatic property that hosted 10 of us for a fantastic 50th birthday weekend. It was all we had hoped for. The house was fantastic and I would highly recommend a holiday here. The town of Tickhill is lovely too - a wide selection of shops including 2 great butchers and 2 very good bakers. A lovely little fruit and veg shop means everything you need is there.

We loved the quirky nature of the property - all the old bits of the mill still in the building. We also loved the situation by the lovely pond and at the centre of a lovely village.

This is a beautiful property with so much character. Had a fab stay in a lovely village with great restaurants.

The property was totally unique-we loved the quirkiness of the mill features still in the house and the sympathetic decoration. That and the ducks on the pond were the real draw. Then when we arrived we discovered the location was convenient and the village lovely.

There were 8 of us celebrating our twin sons 30th birthday and there was ample room for us all. The property had so much character and made our weekend more interesting. Lovely location and easy access to many areas.

The location of the property exceeded our expectations. You even had your own private waterfall! The view from the upstairs of the property (overlooking the duck pond castle) were excellent. The interior decor of The Watermill was amazing. It was like staying in a museum with all the old unusual items, including memorabilia displayed all around the house. Just when you thought you'd seen everything you'd notice something else. We had a lovely time feeding the ducks.

Great touring base for Lincoln, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and a pretty village in its own right. A slightly unexpected success as a holiday destination but one we could happily visit again. House was very interesting and loved having the mill mechanism in the kitchen! Not often that you have a castle next door either!

Property was packed with period features and design touches.

I loved the property as a whole and it had a real homey feel to it. I especially loved the outdoor seating area which is fantastic whether it's hot, cold or raining!

The Watermill was gorgeous - a really quirky house with lots of interesting features and rooms tucked away everywhere! It easily accommodates ten people - not just in terms of beds, but with the good sized dining room and sitting room, as well as the sunroom and outdoor space. It's in a great location and was an easy drive from Sheffield. The decor was really interesting too. We found pretty much everything we needed in the property.

We have just stayed at The Watermill Cottage for 1 week over the New Year period and we had an excellent time. We were kept fully informed of key collection, cottage was clean and warm on arrival, any queries were addressed with the key holder leading up to the holiday. Only recommendation would be for 10 people one more shower needed - would definitely go back.

We rented The Watermill to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday and it was big enough to sleep all our family. Park up, no driving, lots of champagne and fun. The place itself is beautiful and intriguing. We loved it.

I booked this as a surprise short stay to Celebrate our twin sons 30th birthday. There were 8 of us and we had a fabulous time. Don't know how I managed to keep it secret until the day before we left and only gave out a few hints during the course of the previous day. Only one couple worked out the clues! The area suited us all as we each had about the same distance to travel. Definitely worth a trip and would definitely go again.

i've just returned from a two night break at the Watermill Cottage, Tickhill. Th watermill is on the side of a village pond, which is as quaint as you could possibly get. The House boasts five bedrooms 3 doubles upstairs one ensure and a bathroom, one double and a single downstairs. I was staying in the middle bedroom the bed was comfy and cosy, however a curtain at the window would have been nice, but I improvised with a throw so that wasn't too much of a problem. The house is unique and artefacts from the old mill remain in the house which adds to the character. The outside seating area is nice but could do with a sweep and tidy up and remove the old candles. The rooms are very functional and plenty of different areas to relax. My only criticism would be that as this is an old building and has lots of ornaments and pictures etc., these are hard to,clean and do collect dust, having said that the bed linen and bathrooms were clean, as was the kitchen area. The village of Tickhill is lovely and some nice shops and restaurants for a short break this base is ideal.

When we arrived we were all amazed at the view of the house and couldn't wait to explore it. Unfortunately when we entered the amount of post on the floor told nobody had been there recently and a cobweb from the stairs to the dining table didn't help either. The place was very dusty but worst of all the kitchen contents were disgusting burnt food in the frying pan and baking trays we had to wash them before we could use them. The drawer with kitchen utensils housed 2 mouldy wooden rolling pins amongst them so we didn't touch them. I did ask the cleaner/caretaker who arrived just as we were leaving if she would use them and she said 'no' but she had been on to the owners several times about replacing things but nothing was done about it. My husband sat on the side of the bed and disappeared engulfed in a memory foam mattress, the slats on the bed had moved there was nothing to stabilise them. the out side area (the decking) was covered in dead leaves and all plants out there large and small were dead not a place to sit and enjoy. But, at the back of the house was a lovely lake with lots of wild life, the views were great. The house itself was quaint and plenty of room for us all (10 adults) if only it was cleaner. Tickhill is a lovely town and the surrounding area was lovely but sadly our family reunions will not be returning to the 'Watermill'

We were so lucky to find this 10-berth facility, when everything similar was already booked. What a find. It was beautiful, quaint, quirky and ticked all our boxes, except maybe one. The addition of at least one other bathroom with genuine shower would have helped, but otherwise the Mill had everything, very well appointed and provided for. We filled the house with our full quota of bodies, plus two friends staying in B&B closeby hung-out with us. all good friends, singles, couples and including children we never felt overcrowded, even at mealtimes, around the table where we tended to leisurely congregated and made merry. Perhaps a little less clutter (football trophies in Kitchen?), whilst not reducing its country charm, could be an extra virtue. Beware the Watermill with its numerous rooms and cosy living areas it is easy to forget where you left the keys, cameras, phones, iPads etc etc. the lounge included a large (though little used by us) TV, and other rooms had TVs and DVDs etc alike. Kitchen was well stocked, and catered for the large group. External appearance and location was great. Very quaint location with pond and original water mill features was very appealing, and Tickhill was a nice understated town/village, with all the amenities we required. We only had two cars within the group, but a 3rd or 4th vehicle may have presented a problem, but that is an observation made almost apologetically in looking for negatives...otherwise we only had positive comments to make. The property appears to be on the market, so it would be a shame if this building is lost to the holiday lettings market.

We have just returned from a short break at the Watermill. The location by the Mill Pond is lovely and the small town of Tickhill offers all amenities. The property was adequate but needs several improvements to bring up to the standard expected of holiday rentals . The ground floor bedroom although sold as a double has a bed next to a wall , somewhat difficult for the older couple . The single bedroom has a put you up type of bed and also houses the central heating boiler which is noisy. Lighting in the downstairs dining area is dismal , and depressive . The kitchen is poorly equipped, teapot with cracked lid , no can opener , mismatch of wine glasses , shelf missing from refrigerator , poor selection of bowls , no handle for grill pan etc Very poor towels supplied , would have preferred to have taken my own . The bathrooms were very good and appeared to have been recently refurbished.

Fab house for a break with family or friends. Five bedrooms and many rooms to sit and chat. Outside decking area with water trickling under. No actual garden other than this but fab scenery, grass, pond, walks for dogs. Village great with every shop, pub, restaurant you need. Try Roccos Italian as delicious.

Very quaint and interesting accommodation. Stayed with family and the dog and had a great break. So much to look at and Tickhill village itself was lovely and picturesque with shops, cafes, restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance.
