The main Mill House dates from 1830 and represents a unique opportunity to purchase an idyllic period home in a stunning rural New Forest National Park setting. Mill House is an iconic landmark Brockenhurst property situated on the eastern fringes of Brockenhurst village, with superb outlooks over Brockenhurst Park, and affording very easy access onto the open forest.
