Mill End Mitcheldean (The General Stores) is a converted medieval long hall (once the village shop hence the name) joined internally to a converted two story malt house and also an old pub called The Jovial Colliers, with additional accommodation offered in George Cottage, which leads off the top lawn of The General Stores.
Mill End sleeps up to 40, if using George Cottage.
The house is four star graded with white cotton bed linen and towels throughout. And it boasts a massive dining hall seating up to 40, which doubles as a great venue for dance or fitness classes.
Each bedroom is themed and created by designer Liz Lewitt, who once designed lingerie for Agent Provocateur and ran a dance, costume and styling agency for TV, advertising and hospitality industries. She also ran a media and music industry members only bar aboard a 100ft Dutch boat which she and her partner converted into the luscious and glorious Il Bordello. Much of the interior ideas and commissioned graffiti art is now featured in The General Stores.
The house is in a village location so there is an outdoor late night curfew and the house isn't suitable for PA systems and DJs, but the property forms three sides to a courtyard garden, offering complete privacy, whilst still being a stone's throw from a well stocked and late opening co-op store and off licence - always useful for late night purchases of extra ice, bottles of wine or bubbly and fresh limes to complement an after dinner gin and tonic!
Facilities include 1 outdoor hot tub, indoor spa with infra red sauna cabin and steam sauna cabin, mini gym, facial steamer and foot spa, pub sized pool table and cocktail bar. We can offer in house pamper treatments with therapists who visit you at the house, or for a cheaper option you can purchase one of our bespoke luxury pamper hampers for £10.00 per head, with all sorts of beautiful eco aware and kind to the skin artisan products for you and your guests to enjoy during the weekend.
Having previously worked in the nightclub and entertainments industries, we have amazing costumes to hire for in house or studio based boudoir photo-shoots or can arrange a burlesque dance class to take place in The Upper Malt House, with a photo booth to record the weekends events and butlers to serve you.
If you are a group of more outdoor action kinda gals, then we can arrange clay pigeon shooting, high wire go-ape adventure course, riding or quad-biking. It is all on offer here in the beautiful Forest of Dean!
If you like to dress up and go with a theme, then we can offer a fully styled murder mystery, death by chocolate or, working with Lesley from the vintage hire in Newnham, we can dress the room to create a mad hatter's tea party or a baroque evening dining experience - and we can cater for you too!
