Meet our enthusiastic team of housekeepers... and gardener!

We know how lucky we are to have such an amazing team working with us - many of our guests comment on how wonderfully clean the cottages are on arrival and we know the grounds and gardens are enjoyed by all who visit -  we thought we'd take this opportunity to introduce the people behind the scenes and to thank them for all their hard work.


Warm, funny, bright and exceptionally conscientious - Michala is an absolute pleasure to work with and has an incredible eye for detail. She instinctively knows how to make our cottages look their best for every guests - not just clean but cherished!


The newest member of the team and what a find!  Niki thinks, moves and works at lightening speed, getting through enormous amounts of work without ever compromising on quality.  Her flexible, positive and dynamic approach is infectious (we have all raised our game since she came!).

Joe - the gardener

Introducing Joe with any degree of impartiality is tricky; as his wife I am bound to say he is kind, considerate, great fun to be with and that his horticultural skills and knowledge are first rate.  Joe has helped John in all aspects of mill renovations before moving on to design, build and plant the 'secret garden' beyond the mill pond at Bents Mill.  Sadly for Hewenden, he was whisked off to work at RHS Harlow Carr near Harrogate for four years, during which time nature added its own design element to Joe's original scheme.  He has returned to Hewenden on a part-time basis in the last couple of years, diving his attention between the valley, our kids and studying yet more horticulture.
