Advantages Tucked away and quiet. Close to Torbay and Dartmouth
Disadvantages No mobile reception!
Bickley Mill Inn is located out in the country near Newton Abbot in beautiful Devon countryside of the Stoneycombe Valley. Close to Paignton and Torquay with Dartmouth just around the corner, but far enough away to not even feel like you’re anywhere near anything.
A converted Flour mill, Bickley Mill Inn is now a stylish and contemporary homely, chic, modern hotel with 10 individually designed en-suite bedrooms of all different sizes and shapes, a gorgeous cosy yet restaurant-like restaurant and bar area with open fire in the colder months. They also have a large function room, Millers Room, for anything from wedding receptions to Halloween and birthday parties! Not to forget the warmer summer months they have a large decked area near the bar which is cleverly half covered with gazebo for those who prefer a little shade when sipping your icy pint.
We first came across Bickley Mill Inn by fluke. We were out one day looking for somewhere for lunch when my now husband remembered this little gem. We went in, were greeted by friendly helpful staff and of course, delicious food. While we were sat there we noticed little leaflets advertising their Millers Room for wedding receptions at a reduced rate for mid-week bookings. Mid week was not of interest to us at all but the fact we could have our wedding reception there…ohhh yes!
We had searched many venues for our reception. Some grand, some old, some new, some even blue! But with much frustration we just couldn’t find anywhere we both agreed on. I had grand ideas but sadly we didn’t have a grand budget. He had small ideas but sadly we had too many people wanting to come for that.
All of our meetings with the hotel went smoothly and very helpful. Emails where slow to be answered but this was understandable as she was a very busy lady with many weddings to plan but ours.As the day drew nearer the colour scheme was chosen, the dress was chosen, the bridesmaid dress was chosen, the florist was chosen, the rings were chosen, even the suit was chosen!
