    • “A wonderful week in a fabulous historic home. Beautifully clean and very very comfortable accommodation. Lovely beds, linen, towels, and pillows; all of a very high standard. The bedrooms were pretty and very peaceful. Firewood was also provided. There were complementary biscuits and milk on our arrival. We really enjoyed the exquisite setting of Bagtor Mill with endless gardens and a woodland walk within the grounds. It was a pleasure to stay there and to meet Mark the owner, who was available if needed. The stream and river Lemon were a delight and then a short eight to ten minute drive to the moor. The outdoor table and chairs were also very comfortable with a beautiful view of the garden. Peace and tranquility always present. There is also a fantastic village shop in Ilsington which is open until 19.30. Produce there is plentiful and of a high quality with lovely volunteers running the shop. Thank you to Mark, the owner for providing this fabulous holiday home.”

The Property

About a mile from Ilsington, in a beautifully peaceful setting on the bank of the River Lemon, is Bagtor Mill, a stunning, Grade II listed, thatched, detached house. With late 17th cent. origins, the original mill house has been thoughtfully renovated and added to over time and is now a charming and spacious home, with its large mill wheel and original workings (fenced) attractively preserved. Surrounded by 5 acres of well-planted gardens, the tumbling river (unfenced) forms one boundary, with gently sloping lawns dotted with pretty wildlife ponds (unfenced) and a paved suntrap terrace (table/chairs). From the door, waymarked paths wind through the owner’s private woodland/conservation area and alongside the river where deer and other wildlife roam (access occasionally restricted during felling work/bad weather; owner sometimes on site to access workshop/tend grounds).
Long gravelled drive to covered porch and front door. Oak-fitted kitchen (dishwasher, combi-microwave, fridge-freezer, electric Aga, 2-ring ceramic hob). Dining room with doors to garden. Living room with beams, open fire (logs included), smart TV/DVD/Blu-ray and door to terrace. Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier) and loo.
Stairs up to three first-floor bedrooms - a double (5' bed, smart TV/DVD) with en suite shower-room (suite), a double (5' bed) with garden views, and a twin (truckle).
