As the name suggests, The Old Mill, was once a working mill and part of the original leat can still be seen at the front of the property. It has been a private house for a considerable time and is available to the market for the first time in over 40 years. The existing owner has greatly improved the property and created a very popular guest house, which includes two lovely holiday cottages. Due to impending retirement The Old Mill is now available and offers an outstanding opportunity to create either a large family home with excellent income potential. There is also the added advantage of a useful paddock as well as stables, creating huge potential for a variety of uses.
