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.
I cannot speak highly enough of Mendham Mill which ever Property you stay at, this time it was in North Meadow Lodge, we have stayed many times over 3 years and I believe around 7 weeks in all this year and it has never failed to delight in so many ways, we have seen it through all seasons this year from snow to the drought we are now experiencing, but the gardens owing to Nicks vigilance of watering are still looking magnificent.... the gardens, river as the seasons have developed have given us different experiences, not forgetting the wild life you can capture with your camera and of course ...more
Hard to believe that it is 10 years or thereabouts since Mendham opened its doors in all its beauty, and James and Nick were revealed as the world's most charming and considerate hosts. A cottage has been added since then, but otherwise remarkably little has changed. It seemed perfect then and it seems perfect now. The Nest feels completely familiar the moment we open the door, and its terrace still offers the best view of the river. The excellent piano remains in situ. What more can one ask for?
Sitting here on my last morning at Mendham Mill which is basked in sunshine! This is our second visit and there will be many more. This place is so special, this is down to two people, Nick and James the owners. They are the most amazing hosts, kind, helpful, nothing is too much trouble and they truly welcome you as friends. The gardens are amazing and it’s lovely to open the blinds and see Nick trundling past with a wheelbarrow! All the accommodation is of the highest standard, everything you need is here and I mean everything even if you want to do some baking! So thank you Nick and James, ...more
This is our second time at Mendham Mill. First rate accommodation and facilities. James and Nick once again so friendly and welcoming. Always helpful. The setting is beautiful with opportunities to canoe along the River Waveney. Chances to explore The coast but who would want to with these beautiful surroundings! We will definitely be back.
Party of 15. Split between the Miller’s House and The Lodge. Great chance for indoor comforts mixed with outdoor activities like canoeing, ball games and bbqs. Excellent family holiday from ages 70 down to teenagers! Really welcoming. Can it recommend enough.
