Jopes Mill was built at the end of the 18th century and was a water powered corn mill. The original mill wheel is still in place, and inside the timber mill workings form a backdrop to the dining room. Original features have been sensitively incorporated into the refurbishment of the building which was completed in 2020 to a very high standard.
The entrance is on the ground floor immediately adjacent to the off road parking area. The front door takes you into the dining room where subtle lighting highlights the original mill workings and other features. A door leads through the kitchen, with a range of modern appliances and plenty of workspace. From here stairs lead up to the first floor landing where there is a further door to the outside - the mill is built into a slope.
The large (5mx5m) living room is on the first floor and as well as comfortable sofas and chairs has the original millstones set in the floor. There is a wood burning stove for extra cosy warmth in the evenings, and we supply unlimited free seasoned wood from our own woodland. Also on the first floor is the second bedroom which is double height and has a skylight which floods the room with light in the mornings. There is a small shower room and toilet on this floor.
Stairs lead on to the second floor where you will find the master bedroom, with original hand-cut (and quite wonky!) oak beams. There are views from this bedroom up into the woods and down to the river. The second floor bathroom has a bath and toilet, and a velux window so you can lie in the bath and look at the stars!
