Tenure: Freehold

A stunning former mill overlooking the Nene Valley. Situated on about 4.5 acres of pretty gardens, this 5 bedroom mill exudes period charm and enjoys far reaching views of surrounding countryside.

Location

The Old Mill sits in a private peaceful and rural setting with far reaching views over its gardens and the River Nene Valley. The property is just 1 mile from the centre of Castor in a convenient location with good access to Peterborough. There are good local services in the area including a range of shops in Peterborough, public houses and restaurants. There are numerous opportunities for rambling and country pursuits in the neighbouring Nene Valley countryside.

Castor is an attractive village of largely stone buildings 5 miles to the west of the Cathedral City of Peterborough's city centre. It has rich Roman origins and was the site of BBC TV Time Team excavation at St Kyneburgha's Church, a fine Norman church, in 2011.

Castor supports a village shop, public house, and is close to Peterborough Golf Club, whilst Peterborough itself provides a comprehensive range of retail and sports facilities, as well as main line commuter links to London and the north, as well as to Cambridge. Stamford, an attractive Georgian market town and the country's first designated Conservation Area in the 1960s provides a charming and eclectic range of shops of restaurants, and is also well known for Burghley House, whose gardens are a delight.

Along with its very good commuter rail and road links, the area is also spoilt for the choice of excellent private schooling and well-thought of state education, and Stamford, Oundle and Uppingham Schools, as well as The Peterborough School are just some of the well-known educational establishments within a 20 miles.

The Old Mill is well located for the commuter with a fast service to London from Peterborough.
