The Mill House, an idyllic B&B in south Wiltshire Set in flower-filled gardens through which the River Till meanders, this former mill house now makes one of the most comfortable and appealing b&bs in Britain. Recently modernised, its retains its markedly English character, reflecting that of its genial host Michael Mertens. Stonehenge is only three miles away or, if you prefer something more modern, Salisbury with its cathedral is nine miles south. The Boot, the renowned village pub, is only ten minutes walk along the river. The Mill is not exactly cheap but is very good value when the superb eight-course English breakfast – cooked and served by Mr Mertens himself – is taken into account. Book early as there are only four bedrooms and many visitors return repeatedly.
