Our Family - Autumn 2021

Bob and Kate

We are Bob and Kate, and 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 every day the plants look different. Bobs' favourite time of year is winter - with the crisp frosts and the colours of the willows. Our children Iszi and Louie are very much part of the running of Millbrook and love to help guests.

Meet our Team

James looks after our Grounds, and Vanessa is our Housekeeper. We have a gardener called Jenny who helps us plant up areas and make them look stunning! Meg 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.
