There is a fishing lake on site, and arrangements can be made to use this. there is also a Watermill on site, Ford End Watermill. This little mill, recorded in 1616 but certainly very much older, was in use until 1963.
Restored by volunteers, and now maintained and run by Ford End Watermill Society, it is the only remaining working watermill in Buckinghamshire with original machinery. It retains all the atmosphere of a small farm mill of the late 1800`s.
An unusual feature is the sheepwash in the tailrace below the mill. Washing made the fleece easier to shear and increased its value.
Stoneground wholemeal flour is on sale during milling demonstrations.
This property may request damage deposit.

`Just wanted to let you know what a delightful stay we had in Ivinghoe. Facilities were perfect and owners were wonderful to visit with. The adjacent World War II Memorial and the Watermill were made it icing on the biscuit. Would recommend making more note of the memorial and the watermill.` - Steve W.
