The property

This amazing thatched detached house is situated beside the River Lemon about a mile from the pretty Devon village of Ilsington.

Adapted and extended from a 17th century mill house, it is Grade II listed and is a very special place for families or groups of friends to relax in this tranquil setting.

The long drive leads you up to the entrance into a kitchen fitted in oak with a traditional electric Aga.

Enjoy leisurely meals together in the dining room, or snuggle down in the charming sitting room with its beams, open fire and door opening to a terrace.

The bedrooms ramble over two floors, with two doubles and a twin on the first floor and, up another flight of steep stairs, a roomy family bedroom under the eaves, complete with TV.

The surroundings are gorgeous, with the fascinating original mill wheel and workings to admire and five acres of gardens to wander, with the river babbling through and ponds with wildlife amongst the lawns.

A terrace is a lovely suntrap with outdoor furniture.

You may spot deer and other gentle creatures amongst the private woodland paths which are signed from the house.

Beyond this lovely place is more beautiful countryside, Dartmoor’s southeastern slopes and the River Lemon valley which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest where birds and butterflies thrive.

A visit to the dramatic landmark of Haytor is a must, as is the traditional seaside town of Teignmouth.

With easy access to the A38 within a couple of miles, Bagtor Mill is perfectly placed for exploring the area.
