A converted 16th-century watermill set in rural Devon, this property is ideal for country lovers with walks accessed from the property. It is accessed down a country lane and is one of four houses of the original mill complex, set around a large courtyard. Laid out over three floors, the mill is skirted by a leat at the rear which drops to a waterfall down the side of the property, running over an old water wheel. Guests can relax on a decked patio area by the leat. The workings of the mill, and exposed original beams and stone walls have been sympathetically restored. Stable doors open from the courtyard into a well-stocked kitchen and a dining area, which has a display of the mill workings on one side. All bedrooms have tilt and turn Velux windows (not curtained) that provide countryside views. A private paddock, that is adjacent to the courtyard, provides perfect surroundings to enjoy a picnic or a kick around.
There are many circular bridleways for those who like walking and observing bird and animal life, and the waterways that supplied the mill. The charming village of Chulmleigh, with a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants serving good food, is 4 miles away. Nearby attractions include RHS gardens at Rosemoor and numerous National Trust properties. Exmoor and Dartmoor national parks are also within easy reach, as well as spectacular beaches at Woolacombe, Puttsborough, Croyde and Staunton Sands. The Tarka Trail is also nearby for cyclists and walkers, and both horse riding and fishing are available locally.
