About The Old Mill

The Old Mill was originally a working 18th century flour mill that was operational until just after WW1.

Our renovations have been completed during the COVID lockdown of winter 2020 and Richard and the team look forward to welcoming you back into our new look offer for Spring and Summer 2021.

Set alongside the river Avon, The Old Mill will continue to be the perfect place to relax with family and friends, enjoy delicious homemade food or unwind with a peaceful stay in one of its twelve stunning bedrooms. Located in the New forest not far from the town of Lymington the area has plenty to offer with walks, beaches, shopping and attractions. Alternately enjoy a refreshment in our secluded gardens.

The Old Mill will offer a unique space for those important meetings. With brilliant technical facilities, it means you can be away from office enjoying the peaceful surroundings but still making those all-important decisions.   We also have the space in our grounds for team building events and family fun days to get the whole team away from the office.

If you’re looking for place to hold a special occasion event, our private dining room, with capacity of eighteen guests it offers that exclusivity to add a special touch to your day.  If you have the idea of a larger party or relaxing dinner, then exclusive use of our restaurant is something we can offer.  This has a Terrace Area as a bonus in the summer months.

Our exquisite food and tailored menus allow you to have a dish you will never forget. The Old Mill makes all food onsite using local and seasonal produce.

You never know if a place will live up to the photos and reviews online but this hotel clearly does. It's incredibly charming…the bedrooms give a wonderful sense of calm and luxury. So we slept well…the food was great. As good as all of that sounds - the staff were the very best!

Review, Tripadvisor

It was absolutely faultless - the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. It is ideal for visiting many of the locations in the New Forest and it is lovely to return to the haven to have dinner, either in the Restaurant or Bar. We will be returning to enjoy the same experience.

One of the nicest and most professionally run hotels it has been our pleasure to stay in. Nothing is too much trouble, the rooms are first class, the restaurant is surely one of the finest in Hampshire and the grounds and fabric of the building are tended to by people who obviously care a great deal about ensuring their guests enjoy a memorable experience.

There is ample outdoor space to sit and eat…and whilst doing, have the enviable views of the beautiful gardens, wonderful ornaments, blue tits, chaffinches, wrens swinging on hanging food trays, masses of daffodils and other spring flowers and the sweet sound of birds singing, but out of sight. Inside is just as wonderful.

Beautifully decorated and furnished, so tasteful. The service was exemplary and we were made to feel totally pampered, which added to the enjoyment of our lunch. The food was excellent and we ended with an orange cheesecake which sent us into seventh heaven!
