The River Waveney marks the border between Norfolk and Suffolk and Mendham Mill sits astride the river, surrounded by hundreds of acres of beautiful water meadows. Four award-winning cottages which include the stunning Georgian Miller’s House have been created from houses, a granary, and other estate buildings. The owners are on hand assisting visitors who wish to fish or make use of the canoes or rowing boat in the sparkling private waters of the river. With places like Southwold, Aldeburgh and Norwich all within easy reach Mendham Mill is ideally located.
James and Nick are fantastic hosts. I travel regularly and must say this is the best place in the UK I have stayed in. The house, grounds and facilities are exceptional and James and Nick often go above and beyond to make our stay as relaxed and seamless as positive (even though the Mill faced extreme weather conditions). I have already recommended to all of our friends and we can not wait to return in 2021. A truly unforgettable week.
Mendham Mill has been a wonderful place for us to escape from the world at such a difficult time. It is peaceful and picturesque - and very relaxing. The view from the windows over the pond and across the river and water meadows is lovely, especially with the changing light and weather. Wandering through the lovely grounds has been therapeutic.
The cottage is superbly equipped and furnished. Everything is of good quality. The beds are so comfortable.
The layout of the cottage is ideal for those with limited mobility, particularly the smart wet room - but it would suit everybody.
In the midsts of a miserable pandemic to escape to Mendam was to find a bit of normality still existed. Despite a flooded garden and inclement weather we spent a peaceful and recuperative week, with a wonderful welcome, as always from James and Nic.
The booking process was smooth and the owners reassuring and clear about the Covid Safe practice in place in advance and about their cancellation policy. We chose the venue partly because of the possibility of using rowing boat and/or canoes. Unfortunately due to weather conditions and high river levels neither were available. The location, ease of accessing walks in the area, and availability of a games room more than made up for not being able to enjoying being on the water. The cottage is well furnished, amazingly comfortable bed, excellent water power for shower, and hot water. Kitch...more
This was our first time staying here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. James and Nick welcomed us on arrival and were always on hand if needed. The grounds are stunning, and the Nest is very comfortable and equipped with everything you require.
While my husband fished from the deck at the rear I was lucky enough to see a Kingfisher a few times along with other species of birds.
Perfectly positioned for a walk down to the village pub that serves excellent value for money meals.
This will not be our last stay here.
We would highly recommend a stay here at Mendham Mill.
