At Low Costa Mill our cottages vary in size and can accommodate between two and eight guests. All are furnished to a very high standard throughout, with well equipped kitchens. All bedding, towels, electricity and heating is included – this includes logs for the cosy open fires. If you intend to use the pool please bring your own pool towels. All cottages benefit from access to the free site wide WiFi network. Each of the cottages has a colour TV, freeview and Blu-ray player, conventional & microwave ovens. All except Carters Cottage, have dishwashers.
Indoor Heated Pool
Whatever the weather, you can be guaranteed hours of fun in the indoor heated swimming pool. For the little ones there is an adjacent children’s pool – all are open from 8am to 10pm the whole year round. The air and water are kept at a warm 30 degrees, bring your own inflatable toys for extra fun.
Children's Play Area and Woodland
Our children's play area includes a treehouse, climbing frame, swings, a fully enclosed sandpit, giant games of draughts, hopscotch and snakes and ladders, as well as plenty of grass for a family game of cricket or football. Plenty of activities and space to burn off some of that excess energy!
Our Woodland Walk is accessed from the play area, follow the green frog through the trees to find Winnie-the-Pooh in his house, Dr Who’s Tardis, and plenty more along the way. Our two large ponds are fully fenced, and are home to a large variety of wild-life, often seen are frogs, ducks, moor-hens, herons, kingfishers and swans.
Dog Exercise Paddock
We have a dedicated, fully enclosed paddock of at least ½ acre available for exercising and playing with your dog.
Travel cots, highchairs and stairgates can all be provided free of charge on request, just discuss your requirements with us when you are booking.
On-site currently, we have seven pygmy goats, 12 chickens who often provide us (and our guests) with some tasty fresh eggs, three very friendly stable cats. We often have horses in our Paddocks too.
Wildlife is all around us at Low Costa Mill. Around the pond and along the mill stream, we often find ducks, moor-hens, herons, geese, swans and the beautiful kingfisher, as well as the trout and grayling in the river. Very occasionally, the otter can be spotted in the banks of the river, unfortunately I’ve been unable to capture him on camera! We have several bird boxes placed through the woodland walk to encourage nesting, and rabbits, squirrels, owls, hedgehogs, bats and even the occasion deer have been spotted through the woods and surrounding areas.
We have a number of barbecues available for our guests to use free of charge, either gas or charcoal, ample outdoor dining areas are available outside the cottages or on the lawn.
There is free wifi available across our site, including the cottages, pool building and the play area.
On-site Fly Fishing
For Fly fishing fanatics, this comes free of charge, subject to holding the relevant rod licence, & you will find the Costa Beck is well stocked with trout & grayling. You may even catch a glimpse of the resident kingfishers & the shy grey heron going about his business.
There is an information area at the entrance to the swimming pool which has an extensive range of leaflets and guide books for the local area to help you plan your days, as well as a selection of books, jigsaws and games available to borrow.
For those cottages without a washing machine there is a laundry room which includes 2 free to use washing machines, a pay per use tumble drier, drying rack, washing baskets and clothes airers. There is also a communal freezer available for use in here.
