Watermill
Bradbourne Mill is a collection of historic, Grade II properties located in the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire, Peak District. The Water Mill, which originally milled corn and wheat since the 1500s, has been lovingly converted into a 14-person holiday rental, which houses luxury fittings and many of the original historic workings. Such features inside the property include the ancient stonework, oak beams, and preserved water mill machinery; providing you with a stunning insight into the building’s history. Attached to the outside of the property is the famous Water Mill wheels themselves. The original wood and iron waterwheels have been restored and turn from time to time, fed by the waters of the ancient mill pond adjacent to the property.

About the neighbourhood
The Mill is a short distance from a footpath and stream which joins the Tissington Trail and conveniently connects to Carsington Water; offering our guests good walking and cycling opportunities from the holiday cottage. The Water Mill is within driving distance of Bakewell, Buxton, Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Carsington Water, Dovedale and Alton Towers.
Getting around
We would suggest travelling to and from The Water Mill via car as the easiest mode of transport. However, if you wish to travel via train and then taxi/ bus to the property, we would suggest using the local buses and Ashbourne Taxis. Alternatively, if you have a larger party at The Water Mill, we would recommend hiring a coach from Warrington Coaches located in Thorpe to take you to and from Peak District attractions
