SITUATION Hollands Mill is simply situated in a most wonderful and tranquil valley setting amidst the beautiful rolling countryside on the Worcestershire and Herefordshire border.

The historic village of Clifton-upon-Teme offers a range of activities and local services including a Primary School, Post Office/Village Stores, Public House and 14th Century Church, and an 18 hole Golf Course is also situated nearby at Sapey. Bromyard and Tenbury Wells are local market towns within easy reach, whilst the cathedral cities of Worcester and Hereford are both within a 30-40 minutes' drive and provide intercity rail services to London Paddington, Birmingham New Street, Bristol and Cardiff.  

DESCRIPTION Hollands Mill is truly a hidden gem providing simple country living in a most wonderful setting. Originally part of the Manor of Clifton, a water mill was recorded on the site in 1360. The property now comprises of a mill house and compact livestock and fruit farm. The character stone and slate roof extended house is in need of some updating and is set within south facing sheltered gardens overlooking the meandering Sapey Brook. The original brick and timber framed outbuildings may offer some conversion potential (subject to planning) and a separate modern steel framed complex of farm buildings may also offer further Class Q conversion potential (subject to planning).

Hollands Mill lies at the heart of the farm and is encircled by old orchards and pasture land and will certainly appeal to lifestyle, equestrian and hobby farmer buyers as it provides such an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire an unspoilt part of "Old England". In all Hollands Mill extends to 34.758 acres, 14.066 hectares.  

ACCOMMODATION The generous sitting room has an inglenook style fireplace with inset woodburner with back boiler, fitted cupboard and leads through to the farmhouse style kitchen which has a solid fuel Aga cooker. A rear hall has a cloakroom with basin and wc and a solid oak external door leading out to a perspex covered walkway providing log storage. Off the hall is a utility room with a Belfast sink, fitted cupboards, a quarry tiled floor and a solid oak side entrance door. From the hall an open tread staircase leads up to the first floor landing with ample space for a study/bedroom or an ensuite and off which are two very spacious double bedrooms, with one having a fitted airing cupboard. The bathroom has a shower over the bath, a basin and a wc.  

OUTSIDE The farm drive leads off Hollybush Lane through a wooden entrance gate and winds along and above the Sapey Brook to a paved parking and turning area with an adjacent brick and slate original pony stable and traphouse with loft storage and now forming a garage and store.

The gently sloping gardens from which evidence of the former mill race can still be seen are mainly laid to lawns and border the Sapey Brook over which there is a pedestrian footbridge.

Beyond the gardens is an original timber framed weather boarded and slate roof farm building now forming general storage and a workshop and possibly offering some potential for conversion (subject to planning) with an adjacent timber framed and sheeted roof barn/machinery shed.  

MODERN FARM BUILDINGS Approached by the farm drive which leads on up past the farmstead are a complex of modern steel framed farm buildings with spring water and electricity connected. On the east side is a 3 bay cattle shed (45' x 35') with concrete floor and feed barrier, adjoining is a 2 bay sheep handling shed (32'6'' x 15') with dip, concrete floor and raised full length feed trough and on the west side is a 2 bay barn/workshop (32'6'' x 18') enclosed with corrugated iron sheeted walling. Adjacent on the north side is a 3 bay Dutch barn (45' x 18'). 

LAND The mainly south and west facing pasture land and old orchards encircle the farmstead and range from level along the eastern side of the farm and sloping down to the Sapey Brook towards the west side, contained within easily managed enclosures with access to spring fed trough water and to the Sapey Brook and with ample shade and shelter for grazing livestock. Part of the farm lies across Sapey Brook and has independent vehicular access and road frontage to Hollybush Lane. Parcels of old apple orchards and damson orchards are dispersed around the farm. An area of dingle woodland extends part way along the southern boundary against Hollybush Lane.
