Buckton Mill is a period property believed to have Saxon origins which operated as a working corn mill for the Harley estate until 1950. The property has since been converted into a family home with excellent accommodation over three floors and period features including the working water wheel and the original mill workings, which the conversion works around.
The kitchen/breakfast room provides superb outlooks over the mill race and the gardens, while the dining room has some of the mill workings showcased through a glass screen. Upstairs, the sitting room has a pretty chapel window with a woodburning stove and garden views, as does the master bedroom suite. The two further bedrooms are on the second floor and share a ‘jack and jill’ bathroom. A further staircase rises to the third floor where a study and storage is currently situated but a bedroom could be fitted.

Outside the gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are accessed by a bridge over the millrace. A fruit and vegetable garden and a kitchen garden are both productive and outbuildings provide storage space and currently house a workshop.
Buckton Mill is located in the hamlet of Buckton between bucknell and Leintwardine on the Shropshire/Herefordshire border. Nearby Brampton Bryan has a post office and a shop and the surrounding countryside is wonderful for walking and riding.
