Discover Stowford Mill, nestled in the tranquil Erme Valley and framed by Dartmoor National Park. Burrington Estates’ vision is to transform this eight-acre site into a vibrant community with contemporary new homes, retail units, offices and leisure facilities.
Tipped to be one of the trendiest places to live, work, eat, shop and stay, Stowford Mill, with its iconic features, is one of Devon’s oldest industrial sites and has been part of the Ivybridge skyline for generations.
First established in the late 18th century, Stowford Mill was the catalyst behind the expansion of the town, helping attract commerce and providing job opportunities for the local area. During its lifetime, the Mill has retained its special quality, despite many changes in ownership and an evolution in paper production.
Originally used for sorting rags and fabric that were, at the time, an essential material for paper production, The Mill House is soon to become a series of premium loft apartments, known as ‘Mill Lofts’. Buildings that will become restaurants, offices and shops were once home to machinery, like Stowford No.1, a paper machine that transformed paper production in the 1830s.
Stowford Mill was a hugely successful manufacturing space that sadly became too small for the work it produced. As the owners of the Mill moved their work to Scotland, an opportunity arose to once again transform the eclectic mix of brick and stone buildings into a thriving destination.
At the heart of Stowford Mill will be a public square surrounded by boutique shops, restaurants and cafés. The new ‘Stowford Court’, will complete the community by providing high end, spacious later living apartments.
Burrington Estates, a developer with an impressive track record for the imaginative, design led, regeneration of historic buildings, is now completing the new chapter of this site’s rich history.
