Our Summary

  • In 1904 the Mill was converted to a Sawmill which served the local community for many years but by the end of the 20th Century the Mill was in need of urgent renovation
  • The present owner purchased the Mill in a derelict state in 1995 and had a vision and great determination to rebuild, renovate and preserve a vital part of our heritage
  • A carpeted staircase from the reception hall leads down to the lower ground floor basement with door to outside and is currently used as a utility/boiler room with large storage area although suitable for a variety of uses including potential to create further living space/annexe accommodation


This historic sawmill, situated on the edge of a popular Exmoor village, has been lovingly restored over the past 25 years. The property features a working water wheel, attached 3-bedroom house, and a two-storey barn with forge, workshop, studio/museum, and a 1920s former garage. The mill dates back to the 14th century and was converted to a sawmill in 1904. The current owner, who purchased the property in 1995, has meticulously restored the mill, including the 14ft water wheel, which now drives vintage machinery. The attached house offers three floors of accommodation, including a reception hall, sitting/dining room, kitchen, and three bedrooms. The property also features a basement and a timber decked terrace with stunning views over farmland. The mill building, forge, and workshop are accessible from outside, and the property is surrounded by beautiful gardens and a courtyard. The property is being sold with a large collection of vintage machinery, tools, and memorabilia, and the owner's wish is for it to be purchased by a like-minded enthusiast who will continue to hold open days and develop the historic site.
