Tucked away in an idyllic position within the village of Trentham sits this characterful property.

Home to original features, this recently converted watermill is perfect for family and friends looking for a quiet retreat in the countryside.

Accessed via a private driveway with enough space for two cars, the property is reached by climbing a small set of steps with the charming front door leading you straight into the open plan living-space.

In the lounge, you’ll be enveloped by the property’s original features, including traditional oak beams, log-burning fire and Juliet balcony.

The kitchen-diner provides everything you’ll need to complete a self-catering stay, and with enough seating for four, is a great place to unwind and catch up on the day’s adventures.

We're tackling climate change head on, by planting enough trees to create a net-zero carbon footprint for every booking made.

Brilliant personal service!

"I booked our holiday cottage via the internet. After leaving email address l waited for confirmation which l didnt appear to receive. I rang the helpline and the lovely people l spoke with were so helpful. The emails had gone to junk mail for some reason best left to the world of cyberspace! A lovely lady called Martha called me back to ensue all was well. It's that sort of personal touch that will take this new company a long way. We know how nice the accommodation is as we have stayed there when it was with a different company. On the service we have so far received l would highly recommend the company"

Easy booking with peace of mind

"I was thrilled to come across the Eden Retreats website, as it lists such beautiful stays across the country. Booking was really straight forward, and I felt safe committing to accommodation as their policies seem very fair on flexibility. Very excited for our trip in July! Thanks Eden Retreats."

March 2021

Quality property, quality service

"I have used many different holiday booking sites over the years mostly for cottages and I must say Eden Retreats is up there with the best of them. While not as wide a variety of properties as others they certainly have quality on a very high scale. Booking was a breeze with loads of photos to see what you will be going to and quick responses to email inquiries (I made a mistake in booking numbers, which was quickly resolved). Would definitely recommend and really looking forward to our holiday in July."

Booked for a future stay

"Up to now everything has been very easy! Had questions about the uncertainties of the covid situation and they were so quick to reply, they offered help if needed with bookings. We're looking forward to the stay and I will be reviewing again after."

February 2021

Fantastic converted mill, with a lot of character

"We had a lovely warm welcome from the owner on arrival, and appreciated the personal touches, especially the homemade cake! This is a really cosy place to stay, loved the beams and the log burner fire. Everything was above and beyond our expectations. We would love to visit again."

What a hidden gem

"The owners attention to detail is second to none and made our Christmas break all the more special. The accommodation was extremely clean and exactly as published. This has gone to the top of our list of places to stay."

Cosy, comfortable very well appointed property

"It’s an oasis of green a stones throw from the beautiful Trentham Gardens. [...] The owner lives in an adjacent property and is extremely pleasant and helpful even providing us with a beautiful home cooked apple pie with apples picked from the garden. We will be returning."

A real home from home

"Myself and the family really wanted to have a little bit of time together to relax and unwind. We achieved this in abundance. Fantastically located and beautifully furnished, The Old Watermill appears to have been the perfect property for us. The host was fantastic with recommending us with places to visit and giving us knowledge on the local area. We will certainly return at the next opportunity we have. Thank you for such a fantastic relaxing week."

Just all the little extras made our stay so pleasant

"The cottage is beautiful, tucked away from the road. The area was excellent for walking and cycling. Can't wait to visit again."
