  • Now here is a magic place to be certain! Off a main road, with down a short, winding lane, the Old Mill has one of the most picturesque settings in the New Forest. It exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include the earthly spirit of an old monk with a full red beard. Where he came from is anyone’s guess, as he could have served at any local monastery or been a pilgrim. The building went up in the 15th century as a cottage and then a barn added. The oldest part of the Old Mill is thatched and covered with ivy. Inside, there is an inglenook fireplace with piles of logs for cold nights. The old millrace is now home to goldfish, covered with netting against the predatory herons. There is an old-fashioned dovecote nearby.
