Calverleigh Mill is an impressive Grade II Listed former mill house. We understand that the mill dates from the early 18th century while the house dates from the mid 17th century. The property boasts a broad and traditional front elevation associated with a large country house of this period. It is constructed of rendered cob and stone elevations under a thatch and slate roof. The property has much character and original features including beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces, plank and muntin screen and milling room where the cogs and turnings of a bygone era can still be appreciated behind an impressive viewing screen. The property sits within its own landscaped grounds flanked by a pretty milling stream to the northern boundary.ACCOMMODATION
