This distinctive home and grist mill are believed to occupy the site of a dwelling dating back to circa 1580 although the present buildings and house probably date back to the late 18th century.

The house and mill building are connected by the original cobbled drangway which has been cleverly enclosed to provide an impressive reception hall between the original house and the converted mill.

The mill machinery and original covered water wheel have all been expertly restored to a magnificent standard and provide a unique functioning showpiece.

With three reception rooms, study, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and four bedrooms (two of which are en suite) together with the grounds and gardens, ponds, barn, garages, workshop and river frontage, the property is a most beautiful and interesting historic family home.
