Millswood  is a very fine Grade II listed village house which provides wonderful family accommodation over three floors. The house has plenty of charming period features including oak panelling, flagstone floors and stone fireplaces while the principal bedroom has a wonderful vaulted ceiling.

The accommodation, spread out over three floors, comprises: hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, utility room, boot room, cloakroom, a master bedroom suite on the first floor and five further bedrooms (two on the second floor which also has a shower room and a playroom).

To the front of the house is a formal garden comprising lawned areas as well as a terrace, shrub borders and yew hedging. Steps lead up to a level lawn bordered by a rockery garden and separated from the rest of the garden by a stream. Beyond is a further lawn with a beech hedge, vegetable and soft fruit gardens.

Further up the valley is a beautiful and wilder area with maturing trees, making a perfect habitat for wildlife and children. The backdrop of woodland also creates privacy.
