The Water Mill
How does some time out on a tranquil 17th century mill sound? The Water Mill is home to four contemporary cedar and larch eco-lodges that have been designed with relaxation in mind, and they’re set within the beautiful Calbourne Water Mill.
One of the Isle of Wight’s most popular family attractions, the water mill’s home to 35 acres of peaceful gardens, so when the rest of the visitors head home for the day guests will be able to close the door on their luxury lodges and look forward to the sight of the resident peacocks and doves when they wake the next day.
With the perfect setting to enjoy being close to nature and far from the hustle and bustle, the lodges are bright, spacious and stylish throughout, and as they’re eco-lodges they blend into the environment in every way.
We know that most families will be keen to spend as much time outside enjoying the setting as they will inside relaxing in the lodge, and private balconies mean you can enjoy time outside even when you’re not ready to stray far from your home from home.
Each lodge has its own balcony, so taking in the sounds of the countryside and the views that surround them will be as easy as stepping outside. Whether you step out and start your day by watching the sun rise and the peacocks wander over a cup of tea, or you while away sunny afternoons enjoying your own space in a rural setting, the balconies mean you can take in the views without having to leave your eco lodge.
They’ve thought of everything at The Water Mill…and for those of you who like to whip out your pinnies and cook up a storm outside wherever possible, each lodge at the resort has its own charcoal barbeque so you can dine in the Great Outdoors.
Set on the balconies that wrap around the lodges, the barbeques mean you can feed the family without even having to peel your eyes from the views that surround the lodges. Now all that’s left to decide is what you’re going to pop on it…
Happily, The Water Mill’s set on the site of The Calbourne Water Mill, and that means you get to make the most of the onsite family attractions throughout your stay – good news for the mums and dads! Hop aboard one of the punts and go for a glide along the water, put the kids on the swings for awhile to let off some steam, or challenge the family to a few rounds of miniature golf…life at The Water Mill is all about taking time out and spending time together in a peaceful setting.
