All at Torr Vale Mill strive to make everyone’s visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.  Access has been considered in all development of the site and will continue to be so to accommodate everyone’s individual requirements.  As Torr Vale Mill is grade 2* listed the changes required to make it accessible for all have been restricted. This guide is there to provide people with the information they require before making a booking at one or more of the cottages.

There are pictures on our website and a virtual tour will be published on the site later in summer 2021.  However, if you require more pictures or have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us either by email (info@torrvalemill.co.uk) or by phone.

Note: all steps have a rail on one side
