This delightful old Mill House, which is thatched and colour wash rendered, has been beautifully restored in recent years and offers comfortable and surprisingly spacious accommodation with endless character. The oldest part of the house is believed to date back to the early 17th Century, with an inglenook fireplace and beamed ceilings providing evidence of its age. A well fitted kitchen/breakfast room provides family space and has an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and French doors onto a terrace. The dining room with beamed ceiling is found just off the kitchen and adjoins the study, which has a door out onto the terrace and a door through to a walk-in pantry. A spacious sitting room has inglenook fireplace, range of built-in cupboards, drawer chests and French doors out onto the terrace. A particularly light double bedroom, with its own partly glazed stable door and well fitted en suite shower room is successfully let as AirBnB. A long landing stretches across the rear of the house and leads to the principal bedroom with excellent built in hanging cupboards and drawer chests and a spacious en suite bathroom with shower overlooking the main lawn. There are three further bedrooms all of good size, having their own character and windows enjoying lovely outlooks and a well fitted family bathroom. In addition to the main house is a substantial shepherds hut, which was designed and built by a local craftsman and includes a veranda entrance and decking, French doors into the immaculately decorated living space with sitting area with LPG wood burning style stove, well fitted kitchen area, with oven/microwave and hob, a fully tiled shower room with pumped hot water from LPG boiler to the shower, wash basin and wc. The bedroom area has double aspect, and enjoys underfloor heating which extends throughout the hut.
