Exposed timbers divide the dining room and sitting room, which has a stunning inglenook fireplace with log-burning stove and a door leading to the outside. The kitchen has a range of wooden units and worktops incorporating a breakfast bar and space for kitchen appliances. Beyond the kitchen is a bathroom and useful utility room.

To the first floor are four spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom benefits from ensuite facilities and has a range of built-in wardrobes. The wheel room is a magnificent space which links the less formal part of the home and is complemented by many of the original workings of the mill with the river running beneath and a cast iron spiral staircase leading up to a fifth bedroom/office.
