A garret is typically defined as a room at the very top of a house, just underneath a pitched roof. The word comes from the old French word guerite, which means watchtower or sentry box. When Molecey mill, house and granary were listed this space was mentioned in British listed buildings as follows: "... attached to the left is an advanced and gabled granary block of 3 storeys plus garret. In the ground floor a blocked door is flanked by a 2 light glazing bar casement and upper floors each have a single similar window. All windows have ashlar lintels with keystones. In the gable an ashlar datestone with initials JME and date 1773. 2 bay side front with similar windows..."
Our garret is accessed by a spiral staircase and the room has far reaching views over Crown, Rectory and Tithe Farm land. These names refer back to the open fields once here and we have picked up the farming theme in our blinds and cushions. It is a great space to catch the sunset from as you enjoy the huge skies from up high and watch birds and wild fowl circle and dive.
