About Mendham Mill - a fabulous holiday home over a river

Five award-winning (VisitEngland Gold Award) beautiful, individually designed cottages ranging in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms set in nearly 8 acres of grounds in a famous and historic watermill.  Each cottage has a private garden (The Lodge (sleeps 4) and The Miller's House (sleeps 8) have gated gardens for child safety). Extensive private coarse fishing on the main river and mill stream (during fishing season).

Canoes and rowing boat available for guests to explore the River Waveney (which forms the Norfolk / Suffolk border).

All cottages are 'No Smoking'.

Each cottage is fully self-contained with independent hot water, heating, washing machine etc. WiFi internet access in all cottages.

The 5 self-catering cottages are:

The Miller's House: sleeps up to 8 in 4 bedrooms (3 bathrooms). Beautiful views over the river from the first floor living room. The secure terrace makes it child and dog friendly beyond which are further private gardens.

North Meadow Cottage: sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms.  Fully wheelchair accessible.

The Lodge: sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms. A huge 1/2 acre walled garden (the original kitchen garden with old-fashioned roses, fruit trees etc), child and dog friendly.

The Nest: sleeps 2 in a one bedroom cottage. There is a 6'5" Kawai grand piano in the sitting room. A private terrace directly overlooks the river (fish from your terrace if you wish!) making it less suitable for guests with dogs.
