Brimming with character and charm, the Water Mill has been lovingly restored and combines luxury fittings with many of the original historic features. Corn has been milled here since the 1500s on the Brookside site, and the present mill buildings date from the 1700s. The original fittings and equipment remain untouched when milling ceased in the early 20th century.
Ancient stonework, oak beams and centuries old millstones and equipment have been thoughtfully incorporated to create an unforgettable interior for this detached Grade II listed building, one of Derbyshire’s oldest surviving water mill. You will see inside the property original sections of the wooden mill machinery which have been restored to give a fabulous feeling of the building’s history. Outside, the original wood and iron waterwheels have been restored and are turned from time to time, fed from the waters of the restored mill pond.
Just half a mile from Bradbourne and 5 miles from Ashbourne, the property is surrounded by some of Derbyshire’s prettiest scenery. The Tissington Trail offers good walking and cycling opportunities, and the village of Tissington itself is a real step back in time, complete with Tisssington Hall. You will be totally spoilt for walks from the doorstep of this stunning property with Dovedale just a short drive away, not to mention the wealth of market towns, pretty villages, historic houses such as Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House and Gardens, all within easy reach.
In such a stunning location, this unique, converted water mill is a truly wonderful base for discovering the delights that the Peak District has to offer. So after a busy day exploring, what more could you ask for than to kick off your shoes and relax in your very own bubbling hot tub! Horse riding available nearby. Shop 5 miles, pub serving food 2 miles.
