Tunbridge Mill is a Freehold Water Mill dating from the mid 1800's in the heart of Chew Magna Village - It its extremely rare for property of this nature in such a sought after location to become available.

We understand the Mill ceased operations in the 1950s and has been used for light industrial purposes as well as long periods spent vacant.
In 2010 planning was granted (Renewal of application 07/02583/FUL ) for Conversion, redevelopment and refurbishment of former Mill site to provide B1(a), B1(b), B1(c) and D1 use floorspace.
In the last 10 years a charity has occupied the outbuildings as offices and the Mill has been used for storage purposes.



Chew Magna is probably one of the most desirable villages in the Chew Valley with it’s quintessential English village atmosphere and a plethora of desirable properties encompassing many periods of building. The Mill lies in the centre of this picturesque village on Tunbridge Road just before the River Chew. Chew Magna has excellent facilities, a church and comprehensive and private schools as well as a variety of local shops and a pub.. Bristol Airport is within a short distance and the cathedral cities of both Bristol and Bath are very easily reached. There are high speed train services available to most parts of the country from Bristol (Temple Meads) whilst the M4 & M5 motorway network is also easily accessible.



We understand informal discussions have been held with BANES and positive responses were received with regards a residential development of the site for a single or multiple dwellings using the existing footprint ( 6166 Sq Ft ) with some scope to rearrange the site layout.
We understand no formal residential planning has been sought on the site.
All residential development of the site subject to gaining the necessary consents.


There is scope to upgrade the existing facilities under the planning granted and potential for further commercial development of the site subject to consents.

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.


An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.


The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
