ODD MILL HOUSE, MILL BARN, and THE BUNGALOW AT ODD MILL TOGETHER WITH SEVEN ACRES will be found in an idyllic rural setting at the end of a half mile private drive. When approaching the property it has a retreat feel and will interest buyers across a wide spectrum, perfectly suited to a family with relatives or equally suited as a rather special holiday let location or for those looking for the opportunity to live 'off grid'.
In addition there is approximately seven acres of land, again ideally suited to keeping horses or off grid farming. The land is complimented by a good range of outbuildings including loose boxes, kennels and storage.
One of the features is that Odd Mill has access along an unmade lane, which leads to the almost 300 acres of public forestry in Swannacott Woods, ideal for riding, dog walking or birdwatchers, and is a huge benefit for those wanting a complete hideaway in this beautiful location.
There was a settlement at Odd Mill recorded in the Domesday Book, and there is a sense of history to this complex of characterful detached properties.
Featuring in The Domesday Book the location was a working mill up until the late seventeenth century, then was unused for many years. In recent years the properties have been cared for and cherished as the properties before you today. Enjoy the tranquillity and seclusion of these properties but still find yourself only 20 minutes from the coastal resort of Bude, via the country lanes, and is a similar distance away from Widemouth Bay, where the world renowned surfing beach is.

The bungalow is of Woolaway type construction, a type single wall building, originally built in the 1960's, but since has had a block out wall and new pitch roof, all subject to building regs at the time.

Yard and Buildings
Odd Mill has an extensive range of outbuildings, a steel framed shed which is currently used for kennels and potentially loose boxes. There is also a range of six good sized loose boxes for the accommodation of horses including a mare and foal box, as well as other sheds for use as stores, tack rooms etc. There is a full size sand school in need of some TLC but would soon be fully useable. There are approximately seven acres of useful pasture which are ideally suited to some hobby farming or an off grid lifestyle, or keeping horses. The location is sunny and sheltered and therefore the paddock may have poly tunnel and commercial growing potential.
