Cobland Mill was built in the early 19th Century. It contained a 14' overshot water wheel for grinding grain. The wheel was removed in 2003 and is awaiting refurbishment and relocation alongside the winery building where a foundation has been built to accommodate it. The mill was abandoned in the late 19th century after which it was used for sheep shearing when it became known as 'Lake Barn'. The hill towards the sea has always been known as 'Cobland Hill' and the mill was given its present name in 2005 when it was first occupied as a home.
