Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome converted Mill in a hidden valley, with about 9 acres of gardens, pasture and wildlife haven and an additional 2 bedroom annexe.


Candy is a beautiful hamlet surrounded by the Llanforda Estate and Candy Woods, which is approximately 2 miles from the market town of Oswestry which has a number of high street and independent shops and supermarkets, leisure facilities and golf courses.

The Candy Woods are popular with walkers offering 800 acres of paths through traditional woodland with The Offa's Dyke Path National Trail which runs through the Old Racecourse. The surrounding lanes and the Old Racecourse provide fabulous riding for equestrian enthusiasts.

The A5 provides road links to Shrewsbury and the M54 wider motorway network, going south and to the Northwest, Chester, Manchester and Liverpool.

There are a number of well regarded schools in the independent sector including Oswestry School, Moreton Hall, Adcote, Packwood Haugh and Shrewsbury School and Shrewsbury High School. In the state sector The Marches School has a sixth form with further opportunities at Walford & North Shropshire College.


Originally the corn mill to the Llanforda Estate, The Old Mill dates back to the 1800's and until approximately 13 years ago, had been a very popular restaurant and pub. The current owners have lovingly converted and renovated the property and thoughtfully made it into a beautiful family home, offering a feeling of space and allowing in plenty of natural light.

The accomodation is situated around the entrance hall and flows in a circular motion with the reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast and dining room all accessed off one another. The Sitting room and family room both have wood burning stoves and there is access out onto the garden off the family room.

The galleried landing provides access to all 5 bedrooms, the family bathroom and the sun room. The master bedroom has an en suite and a walk in wardrobe. There are a further 4 double bedrooms, 2 en suite. The sun room has double doors out onto a decking balcony which overlooks the gardens to the rear.

The Annexe
Accessed independently or from within the main house, the annexe has an entrance hall with storage, sitting room, kitchen, utility with access outside, WC, two double bedrooms, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower.

The gardens at The Old Mill are mainly to the rear of the property and are mostly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders. Steps lead up to a natural woodland area whilst the terraces run along the rear and side of the property allowing seating areas for the main house and also the annexe. To the front of the property is hard standing with raised beds and parking to the side.

A paddock which has been used for grazing is on an incline and is separated from the house by a quiet lane. The outbuildings, are situated on a large hard standing area, previously the car park to the pub, which could be used for a variety of purposes, subject to the necessary planning permissions. They include a barn, tool shed and log store and a further outbuilding, beyond which is the water meadow. There is also a productive, vegatable plot and mature fruit trees.

All of the land at The Old Mill is organic and the current owners have enjoyed links with Shropshire Wildlife Trust. The land includes woodland which is partly coppiced and has been left natural to encourage wildlife. There is also a pool which our clients have restored offering a haven for wildlife.

Acreage: 8.89 Acres
