Mill Cottage is a Grade II Listed thatched cottage dating from
the early 1600s which was sympathetically restored in an
award winning refurbishment by the previous owners following
a fire in 1998. The roof was re-thatched in 2016. The
accommodation is well presented with a host of period features,
as well as a contemporary glass garden room overlooking the mill
stream. The kitchen benefits from an oil fired Aga, fitted wooden
cabinets and granite work surfaces. The sitting room boasts quarry
tiled floors and an efficient wood burning stove. The staircase is
handcrafted from English Oak and Elm and the wooden floors
continue into the three bedrooms upstairs, with their panelled
walls and beams. The quality of the restoration
is apparent throughout and successfully creates a traditional, yet
comfortable characterful home.
The house extends to some 116.6.m² (GIA).
