    “After a pleasant journey to Park Style Mill we were met by our friendly hosts, Chris and Jenny, who showed us round the Mill and made us feel at home.”

    ...

    During our tour of the Mill with them, we noted the very generous welcome pack that they had prepared for us, a whole plethora of goodies, including home made jam! The thing that struck us immediately was the amount of space and the cleanliness throughout. Everything in the kitchen, utensils, cooker, kettle, crockery etc, etc was just top notch as it was throughout the Mill. The building itself is fascinating as it is a former corn mill from the 18th century and one of the attractions was being able to see the Mill machinery displayed behind a glass window. Sadly the weather was damp and drizzly but the gardens were still worth walking around to see the original Mill wheel along the side of the Mill. There is also a lovely pond which is full of aquatic life, including frogs and Canada geese making themselves heard. It was also a very good base from which to visit many of the local historic attractions. We really loved our week there, and it was an excellent place in which to meet up with our old friends, and we hope to go back soon.

The property

A beautifully presented 1730s watermill conversion tucked away in the idyllic countryside near the town of Kington in Herefordshire.

The property was built in 1737 and still has many of the mill’s original features including the mill wheel.

From the utility room, which has ample space for your coats and boots, you will come to an open-plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen.

The sitting area, with its stone walls and exposed beams, is presented in a homely fashion around an old fashioned wood burner.

From the sitting area you will feel as though you are stepping back in time as you enter the flag stoned dining room which still incorporates many of the mill’s original features including the pit wheel, wallower and shaft which are visible behind a large, internal window.

Also on the ground floor is a modern shower room with basin and WC.

Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms.

On the first floor is a modern family bathroom and a double bedroom with shower ensuite.

On the second floor are two further double bedrooms; one with a double bed and one with twin beds.

There is a quarter acre wild swimming lake and the River Arrow runs past the property.

The property is set in 35 acres of pasture and woodland with over two miles of mainly double bank trout fishing on the River Arrow with additional fly only catch and release on the pond.

About the location

KINGTON

Presteigne 6 miles; Hay-on-Wye 12 miles.

The small town of Kington, well regarded as a centre for walking, is situated near the England/Wales border in a beautiful area known as the Welsh Marches. It is a wonderful area of wooded hills, tranquil valleys and unspoilt Black and White villages on the English side and the more rugged Cambrian Mountains on the Welsh side. Celebrated by visitors for its lovely scenery and excellent walking and cycling in the surrounding rolling hills, this quiet, pleasant town offers a number of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Further afield there is plenty to do, pony treking is available at the Black Mountains and why not try Canoeing on the river Wye. There are a variety of tourist attractions close by including the Small Breeds Farm and Owl Centre, the nationally important Hergest Croft Gardens, Offa’s Dyke Path and Mortimer Trail long distance footpaths, and slightly further afield the National Trust properties of Croft Castle and Berrington Hall. Bradnor Hill, with England’s highest golf course, lies just outside the town. Also within easy reach and well worth a visit is the delightful town of Hay-on-Wye with its numerous book shops, craft and antique shops, along with hosting the famous Hay Festival during the Spring Bank Holiday. Nearby is Ludlow, famous for its gourmet food shops and fine restaurants. The ancient city of Hereford, with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, a 13th century cartographer's interpretation of the world, offers a great day out. A delightful holiday location to suit all ages and tastes.
