Message From The Seller

“I do like the surprises one gets when a new wild animal turns up. Maybe a trout in the Mill Race or a deer in the garden.  Young people with vision could make this place into a dream home or business. I’m just too flipping old at the moment!”

Super water mill with trout pond and carp fishing lake, 5 acres and outbuildings

This lovely Water Mill is in a beautiful environment and benefits from comfortable 2 bedroom accommodation, several outbuildings (one of which would be ideal for a gîte, subject to planning permission), a pond hosting some very large trout with water sourced from the river Française via the mill race – and a large popular Carp lake of approximately 1 1/4 acres.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a village about midway between Mortain (Manche) and Domfront (Orne) within the Mont St Michel Bay heritage area. Local shops and amenities can be found at Le Teilleul (2km) and Barenton (4 km).   The nearest beaches are approximately 50 km away and the Mont St Michel is 65 km distant. It is  233 km from Paris and 326 km from the port at Calais. Dinard airport is one and a half hour’s drive, as are the ferry ports at Caen Ouistreham and Saint Malo.  The ferry port at Cherbourg is 2 hours away.
