Stockleigh Mill Farm is found a short distance outside the lovely rural village of Stockleigh Pomeroy, yet is just twenty minutes to Exeter and eight minutes to Crediton's amenities, the railway station is circa three miles away and Exeter St.Davids is in easy reach. The village boasts a church and new village hall. Thorne's Farm with farm shop, café & deli and the thriving village of Cheriton Fitzpaine both lay a short distance away with two pubs, The Ring of Bells and The Half Moon Inn.

The property comprises of a re- thatched water mill, dating back to the 13th century, a four bedroom farmhouse, a generous two storey detached linhay and various other out buildings and really is a rather special place with so much potential! The farmhouse creates a lovely home and has undergone a program of restoration over the past years, staying true to the original building by using traditional materials and finishes. Comprising of a living room, with inglenook fireplace, a separate dining room and galley kitchen with oil fired Raeburn and stable door to the south facing garden. The fourth bedroom/office and shower room are just off the entrance hall. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms along with a family bathroom. There is also the added benefit of the old bakery on the lower ground floor with bread oven along with a storage cupboard and utility boiler room.

Outside is where the magic begins and the opportunities and potential are endless (subject to all the necessary planning permissions and consents) and total an area of circa 1.5 acres, along with the courtyard and out buildings. It is fair to say, that the outbuildings are in need of restoration, repair and modernisation, however they really are stunning and offer themselves to a number of uses, potential B&B, holiday accommodation, work for home spaces, 'annex' for multi generational living, home gym/games room, cinema or purely as farm out buildings if you are looking for a slice of the 'good life' or a small holding. As the lower meadow is relatively level, there is also the potential for a camping/glamping area (stp).

From the driveway, there is a five bar gate accessing the orchard with a range of productive fruit trees, which leads down to another gate into the lower meadow which is boarded by a stream and leans itself to sheep grazing. From the road, there is again a five bar gate opening into the paddock.

All in all, a simply wonderful place to be!

Outside
This is where the magic begins and the opportunities and potential are endless (subject to all the necessary planning permissions and consents) and total an area of circa 1.5 acres of land along with the courtyard and out buildings. It is fair to say, that the buildings are in need of restoration, repair and modernisation, however they really are stunning and offer themselves to a number of uses, potential B&B, holiday accommodation, work for home spaces, 'annex' for multi generational living, home gym/games room, cinema or purely as farm out buildings if you are looking for a slice of the 'good life' or a small holding. As the lower meadow is relatively level, there is also the potential for a camping/glamping site (stp).

Firstly, the old mill and understood to date back to c1296 and being Grade II Listed, it is arranged over two floors with a fabulous and very distinctive re-thatched roof. The ground floor is accessed via the courtyard and has a couple of windows/openings to the side and rear. Exposed ceiling timbers and beams, light and power. The first floor is accessed on the ground level at the front via a timber door with windows/opening to the front side and rear. Exposed timbers and beams with light and power. There is also the old wheel house with heavy timber (the wheel has unfortunately long gone).

The courtyard gives access to several further out buildings, a covered log store, three bay piggery and gated access to the side garden which is mainly laid to lawn with gardeners WC, oil tank and access to the septic tank in the lower meadow, and to the orchard. Parking for several vehicles and part cobbled.

Boarding the rear of the courtyard to the substantial Linhay barn which is broken into three main sections, with timber doors and windows to the front aspect. The old slaughter room and bucket beam are at one end with window/opening to the rear and side and loft area above, power and lighting. At the other end there is a store room, again with power and lighting with timber ladder accessing the hay loft with stunning exposed roof timbers and beams under a tiled roof, and timber floor. Windows to the front aspect. The central section is broken into a store room and workshop, again with power and lighting.

From the driveway, there is a five bar gate accessing the orchard with a range of productive fruit trees, which leads down to another gate into the lower meadow which is boarded by a stream and leans itself to sheep grazing. From the road, there is again a five bar gate opening into the paddock.

All in all, we understand that the land totals approximately 1.5 acres.
