Beautiful historic 12th century fortified watermill, set on its own private island with 4 other islands belonging to it. 3ha total. The largest island, accessed easily by bridges, houses lots of little paths that meander around;
- A large exclusive to the watermill, designer grey stone tiled pool with its white stone surrounds, bar area and poolside fridge; Pool heated by solar panels.
- Outdoor kitchen with covered dining area riverside ;
- Large grass play area with a tennis net & football goal ;
- A small short tennis/ mini badminton area poolside; table tennis; 2 canoes; 1 kayak; 1 fishing boat; fishing rod; 6-7 man hot tub ; table tennis etc.
- Beautiful property, very private grounds.

There are sounds of the 2 waterfalls there - from a large, suspended cantilevered balcony over the river with another waterfall over the little canal that passes through the property. The river runs under the house in 3 places in an authentic, original ground floor.

Living accommodation is on the first floor only, accessed by a very modern floating staircase. 4 double bedrooms, 1 en-suite with jacuzzi bath and small private balcony ; and 1 wetroom; 1 Jack'n'jill shower room.

Whilst marvellous for children there, it is not recommended for under 4's. Lifejackets are provided for the boat & canoes. It is a paradise for wild life, with herons; kingfishers; ducks; cormorants; fish; red squirrels; coypu etc in abundance.
You may indeed be wolf whistled at by the beautifully coloured golden orioles (rare in the Uk) that nest in the canopy on the largest island each year. It is a location to be truly enjoyed, to rest & re-charge your batteries or to have as energetic holiday as you wish, with something for everyone.

2 x big portable air conditioning units to place where you first floor only accommodation unfortunately makes it unsuitable for the physically challenged who cannot manage stairs.

Strictly Saturday changeovers. Cleaning will be done with fluid containing a minimum of 60% alcohol prior to your entrance to the withbsolar panels

Superbe séjour au moulin

By Célia D. on 05-Oct-2020

Agréable propriété. Il ne manque de rien. Tout est parfait. La propriétaire est disponible, arrangeante et réactive. Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour au moulin. Merci à elle.

Une expérience incroyable dans un cadre atypique qui nous a tous bluffé. On se sent tout de suite ailleurs dans un endroit hors du temps et qui, à ma connaissance n'a pas d'équivalent. La piscine est magnifique et immense (16 m de long). Un vrai retour à la nature dans un cadre calme et reposant. Mention spéciale pour Rita et sa gentillesse qui nous a accueilli avec un bouquet de fleurs et un panier garni de petites attentions avec même des bouteilles de vin. Nous y sommes allés pour fêter nos 30 ans de mariage avec nos 3 enfants et leurs conjoints. Nous nous en souviendrons très longtemps tellement c'était bien
