Here are a few frequently asked questions that may help you plan your stay at Millgrove
What time can we arrive at Millgrove?
The arrival time for this property is 4pm. Please do not arrive any earlier than this as we can not allow you to enter the property. We need to prepare the house fully for your stay and so need the time beween bookings to do this. If you think you may be later than 4pm so call the property owner and let us know your estimated time of arrival. Their contact details can be found in your check in information.
How do I find the property?
There are comprehensive directions provided in the My Booking section. Once you have made a booking you'll be able to access this from the sleeps12 homepage. Please use these instructions rather than Sat Nav as this can sometimes take you past the turning for the property. Please also pass these instructions to all members of your group.
We are planning on making a real day of it travelling down to the property. We can't access the property until 4pm, can you recommend anywhere we could stop for a wander or something fun to do nearby?
Great idea! We can't let you access the property before 4pm but spending some time getting to know Somerset would be a great idea. A stop in Taunton would be a good choice, Taunton is a county town with the usual high street shops and resturants. There is a high ropes course there too in Vivary Park for those who are more adventurous! A visit to the River Tone is good for stretching your legs or why not have a real trat and book a train ride on the West Somerset Railway?
