Former mill and mill-house, now hotel. Late C16 or C17, much
altered in C19 and C20. Solid rendered walls (stone rubble
right gable wall). Half-hipped slated roof. Rendered chimney
on left gable wall and on centre of ridge. Mill-house to left;
apparently a symmetrical 2-room plan with centre
through-passage. Mill building to right. Adjoining this on the
right is a lower domestic range, probably converted
outbuildings. Mill and mill-house 3 storeys; 4 windows wide.
Range to right has 2 storeys; 6 windows wide. Mill and
mill-house have mid C20 wood mullioned-and-transomed windows.
Lean-to projection across front of ground storey. Mill said
formerly to have had a mill-wheel and leat at rear. Range to
right has late C20 wood and metal-framed windows.
Interior: much altered, but ground floor of former mill has
heavy chamfered lengthways beam with straight-cut stops,
including 2 big stops part-way along, evidently related to a
former object below. Chamfered post further along. Marks of
former machinery on beam, and also on heavy first floor
ceiling beams. Owner says more detail hidden under
floorboards. Old list description mentions 'roof trusses with
pegged lapped collars'. Large fireplace said to be concealed
in ground floor right-hand room of mill-house.
