Our Millbrook Team
Millbrook is a beautiful 32-acre Estate located in a north Devon valley. Millbrook offers four luxury holiday cottages and runaway weddings in our summer house, and it is also the home of Kate, Bob and our daughter Iszi and son Louie. We moved into Millbrook in 2005, but when we viewed Millbrook in the Summer of 2004, we fell in love with the estate. It was also a challenge as Millbrook did need a considerable amount of TLC. We deliberately decided that the revenues we generated from the cottages would be reinvested back into the cottages and estate. We still have this philosophy today, enabling us to achieve our vision for Millbrook and the beautiful estate and accommodation it is. In July 2016, we opened our Intimate Wedding Venue
Tree Top Escape, a luxurious hideaway in the treetops offering luxury accommodation for up to 4 guests and intimate weddings with up to 14 guests.
"OUR MILLBROOK TEAM"
Millbrook is privileged to have an incredible team of staff. Megan, Bec and Justine are the wedding coordinators and, alongside Bob, will be your go-to people for booking your special event and every stage of the way through the wedding celebrations. Kate will be there to assist you over the phone when it comes to managing the accommodation and marketing. Furthermore, you'll meet James, the groundsman; Jenny, the gardener and Ness, the housekeeper at Millbrook (or Cat at Tree Top Escape and Jemma, at Rose Cottage).

Since 2005, Millbrook Cottages has competed in the Tourism Awards 5 times, earning GOLD each time. We are proud to have been awarded Self-catering of the Year in the Southwest in March 2023, which would not have been possible without the hard work of our incredible team and the continued patronage of our wonderful guests.
In 2021, we became the South West Wedding Awards Country Venue of the Year. Additionally, in 2019 we received Self-catering Accommodation of the Year for the entire South West, with Bronze for Dog-Friendly Accommodation. In 2018, West Country Wedding Awards honored us with Country Wedding Venue of the Year and the Devon Tourism Awards bestowed Best Self-Catering and Dog-Friendly Business of the Year upon us. The year prior, Millbrook won a ROSE Award from Visit England for excellence in customer service and achieved Gold in Devon and Silver in the Southwest for Environmental Responsibility as well as the DEBI Award for Eco-Tourism. To top it off, our successes have been nationally recognized through two Silver awards at the Visit England Awards in 2011 and 2015.
