A Little History

The original 17th Century farmhouse still forms a small part of the splendid early Victorian country house that now stands on the site. It was extensively remodelled about 150 years ago and remains externally much the same today, with large Georgian windows in an elegant painted and portioned facade. The roof is arranged in a series of pretty gables and slated pitches.

Bought in the early 20th Century by Sir David Evans Bevan, the elegant staircase was added and the principal reception rooms and bedrooms were beautifully remodelled, under the watchful eye of Lady Eira and with the help of the well-known interior designer, Mrs Monro of 11 Montpelier Street, London..

After 5 decades of parties and family life, the house was completely redecorated and renovated 5 years ago, retaining the beautiful period features, but adding modern heating and plumbing, making it a wonderful retreat for special occasions and entertaining.

The 17th Century mill from which the house gets its name has long been demolished. It is possible, when walking through the house and gardens, to speculate on which sections are the earliest and where the mill may have stood.
