About this property

  • Thimbleby Mill has huge potential for further modernisation and once complete would create a unique home or retreat.

    In more detail, the accommodation comprises entrance via the double aspect sun room complete with log burner and step up to the kitchen which has a range of fitted wall and base units and vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, door to sitting room with exposed beams and a log burner. There is an inner hall with the stairwell and a shower room and door through to the reception room which is currently being used as a workshop.
    Stairs to the first floor lead you to a large open room with potential to create another storey.

    From here the bedroom is accessed, along with the recently installed en suite shower room.

    Outside, the property is approached over a bridge which leads to a large gravel driveway and the garage/car port with a room over which is used as a gym. There are established trees and manicured lawns which lead to the edge of the mill pond and the River Bain. The Mill is approached over another smaller timber bridge where there is a paved terrace and a hot tub (by separate negotiation). The Mill is heated via log burners and has its own bio disc treatment plant.

    A public footpath crosses through the property leading towards the village of West Ashby and the gateway to the Wolds and the Viking Way.

I cannot remember the last time I have wanted to buy one of our properties as much as this one, it is just crying out to be taken on and finished. The setting and the views across the water and open countryside are sensational.

Local information

  • Thimbleby is notable for its unique collection of three 16th century thatched 'mud-and-stud' cottages which provide a real visual example of what many villages in the past would have looked like before their wholesale replacement during the Georgian and Victorian periods. The Victorian parish church of St.Margaret was built in 1879.
  • Horncastle is about two miles away and has a number of excellent restaurants, a weekly farmers market and many thriving independent shops. Primary and Secondary schooling is well catered for including Horncastle Community Primary and Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. It is a bustling and attractive market town, renowned for its antique shops, with a fine heritage and unspoilt by modern developments. There are some notable historic buildings, including the 12th century Church of St.Mary and it is a good base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.
  • Equally Woodhall Spa, about 5 miles away, has a good mix of local amenities, including a plethora of independent shops, tea rooms, restaurants, doctors surgery, dental practice, pharmacy and the Kinema in the Woods. The National Golf Centre at Woodhall Spa, the Home of English Golf, offers two magnificent courses called The Hotchkin and The Bracken. Woodhall Spa is approximately 20 miles east of Lincoln.
