Dunbar Mill is the most perfect romantic home for soaking up over 300 years of history whilst benefitting from every modern convenience, and technical wizardry in this creatively restored environmentally conscious Mill House.

The comfortable sitting room is on the ground floor of the mill, a large round room with arches and floating spiral stairs lead the way to two further floors.
Under a large wooden cathedral ceiling this Instagrammable kitchen is a cook’s dream and has been used by the owner for cooking demonstrations and classes. The large cooking island is central to the room, it has a fitted gas cooktop, ample shelving underneath, huge food preparation counter space and a convivial breakfast bar for 4-6.
The walls are fitted with open shelving and the kitchen is fitted with stainless steel GE profile appliances. It is fully equipped with all flatware, glassware and tableware.
