    A substantial detached former mill, found in an idyllic rural position and including 28 acres, fishing rights, a modern barn with permitted development to create a four bedroom detached residential property, plus a further linhay barn.

    This hidden gem, located in a picturesque valley, is surrounded by rolling pasture fields, peaceful river meadows, gently flowing waters and private mixed mature woodlands. Situated to the North and West of Nymet Mill lie two substantial rivers, the Taw and the Yeo.

    Both host a variety of wildlife including otters, salmon and trout, and provide wonderful fishing facilities. Nymet Mill is easily accessible, lying just off (but out of earshot!) of the A377 main road linking Crediton and Barnstaple. Crediton, being the nearest town, hosts a busy high street providing shopping facilities, secondary schooling, recreational activities and a railway station. Situated 18 miles (35 minutes) to the south-east lies the cathedral city of Exeter, boasting a wide range of facilities, a mainline railway station, international airport and access to the M5 motorway. 

    Nymet Mill is a former mill house which has undergone recent renovations and is constructed of mostly local stone under Lincoln clay pantiles. The main house contains five spacious bedrooms, two being en-suite and one being on the ground floor with a shower room adjacent. There is a further bathroom, four reception rooms and two kitchens including a red oil-fired Aga. Attached to the property is the former waterwheel once used to operate the mill, as well as the original iron works; a fantastic centre piece to this wonderful family home and historical property. The property lends itself wonderfully to be used either as a substantial country home, dual generational living, or comfortable owner’s headquarters with a potential leisure business.

    This unique property sits within approximately 28 acres of lawned gardens, agricultural fields and mixed woodland. Located a stone’s throw away from the main house are the river Taw and river Yeo, these two glorious rivers present a tremendous backdrop for the property and provide around 775 yards of fishing facilities. Within the curtilage of the main house lie two barns (individually detailed below). The surrounding land comprises both level and gently sloping permanent grassland and two separate woodlands. 


    An 18.4m x 9m steel portal frame building to the north of the main house, this modern farm building has permitted development for the creation of a unique, spacious four bedroom property with an open plan kitchen and dining area, lounge, study, family bathroom, plenty of parking, fantastic grounds, double carport/garage and double stable block with electricity and mains water. The agent holds plans if required and a separate access will be required for the conversion.


    Situated across from the main house lies the stone built Old Shippen, the upper floor of which has been unofficially converted to provide a ‘party room’, and includes a kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms, and 2 mezzanine levels all overlooking the River Taw. The ground floor provides excellent storage facilities with lots of further potential. 


    The land fundamentally lies within a ring fence either bounded by a country lane, adjoining farmland or river frontage. Totalling approximately 28 acres, the land includes a total of 7 land parcels down to permanent grassland; ideal for equestrian or recreational use. The remainder forms either landscaped gardens or mixed woodland. The land is of a slightly sloping topography and has been well maintained, benefiting from good stock proof hedges and fences with the majority of the land parcels being connected to a natural water supply. 


    The property has been used to claim the Single Farm Payment since 2005 and the Basic Payment Scheme Entitlements are included with the sale.

    DIRECTIONS : From the town of Crediton take the A377 west, signposted Barnstaple, and follow the road into the village of Copplestone. Having crossed the railway bridge, continue right on the A377 to Lapford. Once through Lapford continue for approximately 2 miles along the A377. Take the left turning signposted for Nymet Rowland, cross the stone bridge, and Nymet Mill Farm is then located on the next right turn down a stone driveway. 

    NYMET ROWLAND is a small village and parish of the same name, located to the north of Dartmoor. It sits on elevated lands, of pastoral cultivation and regular coniferous plantations – with unimpeded, striking views of its surroundings. Part of its title ‘Nymet’ is derived from the Old English name for the nearby ‘River Yeo’. As a village, it is a still, serene place with a rustic 15th Century Church – one of only two in Devon with an original oaken arcade (to its north aisle). The neighbouring village of Lapford (1 mile) offers a place to pick up any daily essentials with a modern shop/ post office. Lapford also has an excellent primary school (commended by Ofsted), large playing fields and a popular pub The Old Malt Scoop Inn – which provides an à la carte dining experience. From Lapford, buses and trains run towards the City of Exeter and Barnstaple in North Devon.
