Aldridge Mill is an old working mill that finished grinding corn in the 1930’s. It is nestled deep in a sheltered valley accessed by windy lanes from the A361 which travels across the top of mid Devon.
We are very blessed by the nature surrounding us. It is timeless and untouched, full of the beauty and charm of England. The valley is heavily wooded and criss crossed by waterways, with walks for every level of adventure and plenty of hidden wild dipping spots.
We are situated between two small villages, Oakford and Stoodleigh which each have a lovely local pub. There are plenty of charming villages all within easy reach and with many good food options all around.
The small town of Bampton is 4 miles away with independent cafes, butchers, bakers and a great local fresh produce shop.
Exmoor and the river Exe are just above us and we are perfectly placed to be able to explore the sandy surf beaches in the west, the jurassic coast to the south and the wild north Devon coast above us.
We are always happy to share our local knowledge with you.

We are a small community of people brought together by a love of music, challenges and nature. Since 2004 we have run The Bimble Inn a mobile stage and bar, at festivals and private events . For the last 10 years we have had the absolute pleasure and stress of hosting our own festival of music and entertainment. We have always been 100% solar powered in our venue, our festival and our lives. This growing knowledge of off grid power led us to start Bimble Solar, a company dedicated to helping others live sustainably.
Fear not Bimblers, we have not retired in Devon. But we are enjoying a restful summer and our beautiful base. New ventures to come...x
