Description

Croxtons Mill Cottage occupies a unique situation on the banks of the River Chelmer and is approached over a country lane from Broomfield Road which extends to about a third of a mile serving just two properties. The grounds of Croxtons Mill Cottage have a frontage to the River Chelmer of some 350ft and are divided into two areas of informal and formal gardens, the latter enjoying a southerly aspect with lawns gently sloping down towards the water's edge.

A conservatory has been added which provides panoramic views over the gardens and river frontage.

Outside
The grounds are truly remarkable. Formal gardens lie to the south and have been designed and established featuring many specimen trees, including Willow, Lilac and Magnolia with a colourful range of flower and shrub beds set around well tended lawns which gently slope to the rivers edge. Within these gardens is a fish pond partly bridged and surrounded by established rockery garden. At the far end of the plot and accessed from the lane is a detached double garage. To the north of the property are extensive lawned grounds which include some established deciduous trees, again this area gently slopes to the waters edge. There is a hedge row segregation with another area of parking and lawns. Croxtons Mill Cottage also owns a water meadow on the opposite side of the river and accessed over a newly constructed bridge (see photo).
