On the edge of Gramat, down a private drive, a gorgeous old mill and a big welcome from a hospitable couple. Cushioned loungers furnish sloping lawns down to the stream, the water flows beneath your feet and you’ll relax the second you arrive. Warm inviting bedrooms, four reached down a spiral stair, and most opening to the garden, are distinguished by taffeta curtains and fine tapestries; the more private suite lies in a charming outbuilding. Gardens are a treat – a charming collection of rare ducks wander through the grounds. The region is much loved, but please note, the surroundings whilst beautiful are not suitable for small children.
