The Old Mill
The Old Mill is a delightfully restored listed mill set next to the owners’ own home in four acres of land adjacent to the River Camlad in the Vale of Montgomery. Surrounded by lovely countryside, there are far-reaching views in every direction, including the Kerry Ridgeway and the Long Mountain, a perfect location to sit back and relax and soak up the tranquil atmosphere. Immaculately presented throughout, with many thoughtful finishing touches, this cottage is ideal for friends and families wishing to spend some time together in this peaceful location close to the Welsh/Shropshire border. The cottage has been carefully and lovingly restored with the impressive old mill workings retained as its centre piece, rising throughout the cottage. The property oozes charm and character and boasts an abundance of exposed beams, oak doors and frames and a winding staircase, flagged floors and sloping ceilings. Set over three floors, the cottage boasts lovely countryside views from the second floor bedroom. Step into the welcoming, fully-equipped country-style kitchen with dining area, with the old mill workings cleverly displayed. This leads into the spacious and light sitting room with comfortable sofas and a warming woodburning stove for cooler days, together with French doors out to the secluded garden. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both with their own facilities. On the first floor the twin room has an en-suite shower room and on the second floor is the spacious double room with king-size bed and Juliet balcony, low ceilings and character beams and Jack-and-Jill access to a lovely bathroom. To the rear of the cottage is the private lawned garden and patio area, beyond which there is access to the river where visitors can look out for kingfishers and other wildlife. The garden is enclosed by fencing and hedges and is a secluded spot for enjoying the peace and tranquillity with the river gurgling in the background. An interesting feature of the Old Mill is that it is heated with a modern, eco-friendly heat-pump, which takes heat from the nearby river. This provides underfloor heating on all floors, and hot water for the whole house; a modern twist on its earlier heritage. Delightful walks and cycle rides are on your doorstep with Offa’s Dyke close by. There is plenty to do and see in this lovely area on the borders between Wales and Shropshire with market towns, castles and delightful country pubs all within easy reach. The popular village of Marton which lies on the Montgomeryshire/Shropshire border is 1.5 miles away and offers a village shop and two renowned pubs. Historic Montgomery is within five miles, Welshpool six miles, and Shrewsbury within 25 minutes’ drive. Nearby attractions include the stunning Powis Castle and Gardens, the beautiful series of gardens at Glansevern Hall and the Montgomery Canal which runs close to Welshpool. Shropshire attractions include the majestic Stiperstones and many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This delightful, historic cottage is situated in a lovely peaceful location, to be enjoyed whatever the season.
