Coombe Mill is a very attractive 16th century former mill house in the small Somerset hamlet of Coombe. Listed Grade II, the property is built of red stone elevations under a tiled roof and has been very sympathetically restored to provide a very comfortable family home.

Accommodation is blessed with a good deal of character, and includes an excellent reception space with a south-facing garden room leading onto a terrace, reception hall, a dining room with beamed ceiling and a double drawing room with summer and winter sitting areas. The kitchen is a great family space and the pantry is a useful cold store.

The most captivating room is the mill room which can be occupied in a variety of ways, and exhibits the beautifully-preserved mill workings.
