The Mill House is an historic Tudor property, dating in part back to the 13th century, which was still used as a flour mill up until the 1930s. The main house was thought to have been built around 1600 and was famously used by the Bloomsbury Group between 1917 and 1924, when it was home to artist Dora Carrington and author Lytton Strachey. During their residence there they were visited by well known fellow members of the group including Virginia Woolf and Maynard Keynes.
The property has been lovingly refurbished by its current owners and boasts the original restored mill wheel, as well as mahogany flooring, panelled walls and a feature fireplace with a wood-burning stove. Three separate staircases lead to the first floor, from the sitting room, the dining room and the drawing room. Upstairs are the master suite and three further bedrooms, two stylish bathrooms and a shower room/wet room. There is also a large morning room upstairs with vaulted ceilings and stunning views out over the river and gardens. On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a dressing room.

Outside landscaped gardens surround the house and feature a pretty wooden bridge sitting over the River Pang.

A riverside summer house provides fine views out over the water and a paved terrace to the side of the house is ideal for entertaining. The property also comes with fishing rights to the property as well as some adjoining properties. The grounds come to around 1.36 acres.
The Mill House is situated on a pretty country lane in Tidmarsh, a popular west Berkshire village dating back to Saxon times which has a pub, village green and a parish church. Pangbourne is just over a mile away.
