  • “The setting and grounds at Bagtor Mill were exceptional!”

    Being able to step out of the door and walk down the path, beside the ponds and through the woods was a real treat. We have visited the area many times but our stay at this beautiful cottage has been by far the best. We were impressed by the comfort and cleanliness at the cottage and as a larger group we felt the space allowed us to spend time together as a group whilst allowing us the opportunity to find quiet spaces in which to relax when we wished.

    Being able to step out of the door and walk down the path, beside the ponds and through the woods was a real treat. We have visited the area many times but our stay at this beautiful cottage has been by far the best. We were impressed by the comfort and cleanliness at the cottage and as a larger group we felt the space allowed us to spend time together as a group whilst allowing us the opportunity to find quiet spaces in which to relax when we wished. Mark was a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome, giving us information on local eateries and providing us with extra logs when we ran out, (the wintry weather in January meant we spent a few evenings indoors!). The bedrooms were so well arranged, all of us feeling we had plenty of space and ample storage. Popular games were available when we were unable to head out for walks and the fire and cosy lounge provided a welcome and relaxing respite from the inclement weather. The kitchen was well appointed and cooking on the Aga a real treat. What was brilliant for us was how at home our two dogs felt at Bagtor Mill, the outside space and pet-friendly kitchen made our stay with them so easy.....like us they were sad to leave! We will definitely be visiting Bagtor Mill again, the perfect retreat for our large, blended family, thank you Mark.

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).

Smart bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Second flight of steep stairs from rear hall up to attic family bedroom with double plus single truckle bed (smart TV/DVD, apex beams, some sloping ceilings, Velux windows, no door).

Spring water.

Sleeps maximum of 7 adults.

Children of all ages welcome, but care must be taken at all times as garden river/ponds and woodland are unfenced.

An idyllic and picturesque location with lots to admire and enjoy; a handy spot too for coast and moors.
