Located on the outskirts of London in Hertfordshire, the reputable Watermill Hotel offers easy access to the capital and its exciting attractions and entertainment. Resting alongside the hotel is a centuries-old flour mill and the winding Bulbourne River, creating a charming ambience of days past and a quiet escape from city life. Hemel Hempstead, just two miles away, offers rail links to London while local sites of interest, such as Whipsnade Zoo and Woburn Abbey, are just a short drive away.
Plenty of NT properties all within a 20-30 mile radius. Plenty of lovely canalside pubs in the area, especially if the weather is nice - rain while we were there. Hotel ok but one or two small things on the service side would have made it better.
We took the kids to Whipsnade for their birthday which was great but they enjoyed the stay at the hotel even more!! The Water Mill Hotel rooms were lovely, breakfast brillant and as for the beautiful decked area on the river - it was all superb The kids said it was their best weekend ever - Ahhhhhh!!
