all the trappings of country life. The principle farmhouse is a traditional
Devon Longhouse, and is believed to date back to the 17th century.
However, Natson is an ancient settlement, even with an entry in the
1086 Doomsday book. The Deeds from 1851 still survive from when
the Mill (now Cottage) and the Miller`s House (now The Farmhouse)
were sold as "Natson Mills". Previous owners are rumoured to be a
Peruvian Ambassador and a Vogue Photographer and descendants
from other owners have visited from far flung parts of the globe with
old pictures and paintings of the property dating back to the 19th
century. The property enjoys a courtyard setting with the stone stables
and barns. From here there is direct access to the paddocks, extensive
gardens and arboretum with further generous agricultural barn tucked
away from the Farmhouse.
