The Old Mill is one of only two properties that lie at the end of a well maintained country lane, set within a quiet and tucked away location. Thought to originally date back to the 1400’s, The Old Mill, which was formerly a corn mill, served the local area. Extended in the 1980’s and extensively remodelled in the early 2000’s, the current vendors have created a beautifully converted family home. Today The Old Mill represents the best of old and new with period features and character but with a contemporary modern feel.
