Outside there are a range of outbuildings with development potential and a carp stocked lake.

The Story
Set in a magnificent 78 acres and with its own ancient woodland, as well as a river, lake and water meadow, Mill Farm is a truly magical place to live.
You can sit up on the brow of the hill in the field, under the big oak tree and see all the mountains. It is beautiful, a special place, said owner Maria Robinson.
The 19th Century, detached farmhouse has been extended, offering a mixture of traditional period features with light and spacious living.
It was the land we loved, the whole ambience of the area and the feel of the place. There is a long driveway in and it is just completely private. It also just has so much potential, she said.
We loved the fact the house was built from this great solid stone. Back then, the house was about half the size it is now, it has been extended upwards and outwards but has kept that character.


What makes this property so charming is undoubtedly the beauty that surrounds it, creating a private idyll, with stunning views from the large first floor balcony that wraps around the house.
The river runs through our land and there is an amazing water meadow, there are otters up by the weir and the wildlife is absolutely fabulous, she said.
The house itself is spacious with lots of separate rooms. Originally, it had a traditional galley kitchen but this was extended to create a perfect family space.
It is now a large, modern kitchen, with a flagstone floor, and a big double oven. We usually eat in there, even though we have a separate dining room, she said.
The drawing room has an old fireplace with a wood-burner and, as in other parts of the house, there are original beams giving it lots of character.


The property also has a fantastic games room, which is one of Maria's favourite places to relax.
I just love the games room. It has a snooker table in it and a dartboard. It is in the new part of the house and it is just so airy and light, with a lovely wooden floor and French windows, which lead out to the garden.
The property also has a warm and bright conservatory.
It is made from lovely Pennant stone, which is a traditional Welsh blue coloured stone. It is lovely to sit in there in the sun.


Upstairs, two of the bedrooms are large and spacious suites, with their own bathrooms.

The master suite has a spa bath, double shower and double sink, which are fantastic. There is a balcony that runs around three of the bedrooms and there are French windows out on to it from the rooms, she said.
From the master suite there are absolutely fantastic views across our land. It is spectacular. We can sit out in the evening as part of the balcony is covered and has lights.


Outside is a mixture of natural meadows, woodland, wilderness and private garden areas, as well as lots of outbuildings.
The garden can be as small or large as you want it to be. There are lawn areas and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the land, she said.
Over the years, the family have hosted lots of events, including a mini music festival and a druid fair.
But for Maria it is memories of her children growing up that she will most treasure.
The kids used to build tree-houses and would sometimes sleep out with their little walkie-talkies, it was so much fun. For a young family this really is an amazing place to live.


Entered via a spacious entrance porch the first room you will find on this side of the house is the family/dining room. Further rooms on this floor include a sitting room and a games room which currently houses a full size snooker table. The drawing room boasts a stone fireplace and a wood burning stove, creating a warm and cosy ambience, excellent for relaxed family gatherings. The kitchen is located to the rear of the house and offers wooden cabinets and tiled flooring with a further entrance to the parking area and utility room. There is plenty of space for a good sized table and chairs making this a great expanse for informal family meals. Additionally there is a cloakroom along with a spacious hallway, large enough to have a desk or work station. Completing this floor is a boot room located near the kitchen door.


There are two staircases rising the first floor, one located between the drawing room and sitting room and the other on the kitchen side of the house. Ascending these stairs you can access each of the bedrooms and the family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and also open out onto the wooden 'board walk style' veranda which runs around part of the house to the rear. The master bedroom has a high ceiling with striking beams and an excellent outlook.

Set in the village of Dingestow, Mill Farm really is a rural idyll. With 78 acres of land, including a water meadow, ancient woodland and a family garden, the property boasts stunning nature and uninterrupted views of the countryside. A river runs through the land and there is a beautiful lake full of carp. There is also an orchard with apples, plums and pears.

The property also has a host of outbuildings, including several barns. The original mill cottage which overlooks a large field of approximately 20 acres (STMS), could be transformed into separate accommodation or a holiday home subject to planning permission. It also has the added benefit of its own separate access.

The village of Dingestow has a public house called The Somerset Arms and also a village hall, post office and shop. (This post office was 2010 Welsh Winner of the Countryside Alliance Award for Best Village Shop/Post Office). The popular market town of Monmouth on the Welsh border is just a 10-minute drive away from the property. The town is steeped in history including the unique medieval 13th Century bridge which crosses the river Monnow. Three is a weekly market in Monmouth and many boutiques and cafes. Local Schools can be found in Monmouth and Raglan. Excellent golf courses are also located in Monmouth and Raglan, just 4 miles away.
