Milwich is a delightful village in Staffordshire which is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. It includes the hamlets of Coton and Garshall Green. The name means either 'mill farm' or 'salt-working place'. Milwich Brook runs through the village and later joins Gayton Brook.
The parish church is called All Saints which is noted for possessing the oldest dated bell in Staffordshire and the seventh oldest dated English bell.
The village has a sub post office, a pre-school, a village hall and a pub called the Green Man. Each year the village hosts the Milwich music festival and duck race. Milwich also has a number of circular walks around the village ranging from 1 mile to 9.5 miles. In 2015, the village will be upgraded to Super-Fast Broadband.
There are a number of well renowned schools in the area including Denstone, Repton, Abbotsholme, Yarlet, Abbots Bromley, Chase Grammar School, Stafford Grammar and Newcastle-under-Lyme School.
Transport links are within commuting distance with a direct line to London Euston from Stafford Station, taking approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and Stone Station also provides links to London Euston and Crewe.
In the 13th century the manor of Milwich was split between two landowners, Geoffrey, son of Philip de Nugent and Robert de Milwich. This early split in the ownership of the manor may have contributed to the fact that the village was owned over the centuries by more than one main landowner, although by the 20th century, the chief landowner was the Earl of Harrowby. Milwich Hall, a timber-framed house, is built on a moated site which may have been the site of the original manor house of the de Milwichs. The core of the house was possibly built by the Astons of Tixall, who acquired a part of Milwich in 1493.
Milwich Hall is an architecturally intriguing property with two beautiful facades. Although of historical interest the house has been carefully restored by the current owners who have created a much loved family home whilst keeping many of the original features. The majority of work was carried out in 1996-1997 with rolling renovations after this; the house has had a full damp course and is insulated with discreet oak framed secondary glazing.
Timber framed, the house dates back to the 1600s with Victorian additions. Notably the house has some beautiful features including wood panelling, an ornate porch, Victorian ornate ceiling in the drawing room which also includes a beautiful ornate fireplace with Delph tiles, a 17th century carved staircase and mosaic tiling in the hallway.
A recent addition is the conservatory which has replaced an original orangery. It has been built in keeping with the main house with double doors leading onto the terrace and gardens; it has been fitted with thermal glass offering use throughout the year.
The formal and informal reception rooms, on the ground floor are all south facing and overlook the gardens, pool and terrace. They flow particularly well offering fabulous entertaining space.
The kitchen breakfast room has an integrated Neff dishwasher, electric oven and a halogen hob. A feature of the kitchen/breakfast room is a large brick inglenook. There is a useful garden door providing access outside.
The first floor is mostly accessed via the main staircase but a second staircase leading from the kitchen/ breakfast room also provides access.
The master suite overlooks the gardens and pool to the rear of the property and has a ensuite bathroom including a Jacuzzi bath and separate shower. There are a further four bedrooms on this floor, some with the potential to add ensuite bathrooms.
There is also a family bathroom and separate shower room. The second floor is fully furnished and currently provides office space along with a living area, perfect for teenagers and a further two rooms as potential bedrooms/storage.
Accessed via a concealed private driveway, Milwich Hall sits in the middle of its grounds and is protected by mature hedging and trees offering a private idyll. The gravel driveway to the front provides ample parking in front of the main façade
A circular sweeping gravel terrace to the rear opens onto laid to lawn formal gardens and a wildlife pool which in the summer months grow bull rushes. Origins of the original moat are accessed via a small wooden bridge which leads onto a walkway around the pool and into a small woodland.
