Yenworthy Mill is part of Yenworthy Farm. Set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel. The Farm is situated in ‘Doone Country', and actually appears in the novel itself. The gun, which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones', still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. This working farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen. Yenworthy Mill is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monumen...Yenworthy Mill is part of Yenworthy Farm.

Yenworthy Mill is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest. There are rare species of butterflies and trees, large areas of heather moorland and impressive cliff geology. The property is a converted barn. Inside the entrance is an area providing space for coats, wellies and walking boots. There is a very large room with a kitchen at one end with a dining table and ten chairs and, at the other end, a double height sitting area with two comfortable sofas and a wood-burning stove. A walk in cupboard houses the washing machine and dryer. Steps from the living room lead to an attractive gallery room where there are three sofas and a large television. There are also three steps up from the living room leading to a corridor containing a downstairs toilet, a double bedroom with an on-suite shower room and a twin bedroom. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there is a family bathroom, a twin bedroom and a large double bedroom with an additional set of bunk beds and a cot. Outside, there is a pretty raised garden with mature shrubs to the side of the Mill with views over the Bristol Channel. The garden has outside seating and a barbeque Yenworthy Mill is approached via private drive (shared with the farm and two further holiday cottages).
