The mill has incredible history with a range of different uses including snuff, corn and flour over the hundred years of use.

Gatcombe Mill is accessed from a sweeping drive past the beautiful gardens leading to a gravel courtyard which offers parking for multiple vehicles. The living accommodation is set over three floors, the ground floor offers entrance hallway, fitted kitchen / breakfast room access to the front gardens, extended reception room with log burner and utility room / downstairs WC. The first floor comprises of a generous dual aspect living room complete with original floorboards and beams as well as the remains of the working mill which gives the room a focal point and shows the character and history of the mill. There is also a study area, double bedroom and large shower room. The second-floor accommodation offers four double bedrooms with the master boasting an en-suite shower room as well as a family bathroom. On the landing is the library area where there is a sack hoist shaft and drum which is truly unique. Gatcombe Mill is something you will have never seen before, its truly unique living accommodation as well as its beautiful gardens it simply takes your breath away the moment you set eyes upon it.
