The Mill Inn is a traditional country pub with accommodation and has a hall, bar area, dining room, kitchen and rear porch. On the first floor are three bedrooms, a store room and bathroom.
Outside, there is a range of traditional stone buildings and Cundalls say these offer potential to be amalgamated into the inn or could be developed as holiday cottages, subject to consents. The land includes meadows and mature deciduous woodland with stream frontage.
Andrew Wood says: “The property is available following the passing of Mr Hamish McGregor, whose family have owned it since the 1930s, so the sale is a genuinely rare opportunity to purchase a unique rural property with land. The Mill Inn has traded since the 19th century and the adjoining buildings were operated as a mill until just after the second world war.”
