Tours

A historic converted mill house on the River Frome that blends original features with contemporary living. Inside, a striking glass floor reveals the mill’s leat. Extensive collection of antique and modern furniture and fine art works.

Outside, the gardens are carefully and sensitively planted to provide colour in all seasons. Wildlife, including swans, ducks, kingfishers and an abundance of garden birds live peacefully alongside the impressive hydro-electric Archimedes screw, which produces the energy for the property from the power of the river. Impressive shrub garden, hosta beds and old carp ponds can be found close to the ruins of Bindon Abbey, a twelfth-century Cistercian monastery.

The tour includes the ground floor, first floor and gardens.

We had a really lovely visit to Bindon Mill - what a home!! It really is gorgeous. We had a perfect summer's day for strolling in the grounds carpeted with primroses, violets, daffodils and much more. Sally Weld provided a sumptuous light lunch for us and made us feel very welcome. All of our members thought this visit was one of the best!!

The tour was informative, friendly and unrushed, the refreshments were plentiful and generous and the house and gardens were exquisite.

All went very smoothly and Sally Weld was a charming and interesting host and nothing was too much trouble for our members. We all enjoyed a wonderful lunch and despite the drizzle had a lovely tour of the gardens with views of the Abbey ruins.
