About Us

Bob and Kate

We are Bob and Kate, we moved to Millbrook in March 2005 from North Somerset. We live and work at Millbrook and see it through the seasons. Kate's' favourite time of year is late April when spring is sprung and when everyday the plants look different. Bobs' favourite time of year is winter - with the crisp frosts and the colour's of the willows.

Meet our Team

Dave and Nick look after our Grounds and Vanessa, Sam and Clare are our Housekeepers. We have a gardener called Jenny who helps us to plant up areas and make them look stunning! Maddy and Nic look after weddings and work in the Office. We encourage our team to make time to talk to our guests, so please don't hesitate to ask them any questions or advice you need about Millbrook or the local area.

We open Millbrook 365 days a year and our only out of season times are just before Christmas and just after New Year. We specialise in romantic breaks for couples of all ages!

The income from Millbrook Cottages is re-invested in keeping the cottages and grounds to a high standard.
