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.
A really great return visit to The Millers House, especially following so many months of lockdowns. James and Nick are such welcoming and helpful hosts We very much enjoyed our canoe trips, meandering along the river enjoying the peace and wildlife.
The garden centre at Weybread is well worth a visit for garden enthusiasts. Also walks and fish and chips at Southwold.
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.
Excellent accommodation set in amongst a beautiful tranquil oasis!
Mill Race Cottage is comfortably furnished with a well equipped kitchen whilst also providing beds for grown ups!
Thank you to both Nick & James our wonderful host’s.
Four of us have spent a most enjoyable week’s stay at The Lodge at Mendham Mill. Nick and James made us most welcome and were very attentive but not in the least intrusive in their dealings with us. The bungalow is well equipped in every respect and very comfortable. The location is ideal if you are looking for a quiet country retreat and a place to unwind and do very little except commune with nature. The well stocked garden is large but also very private and an ideal place to sit under a tree and read a book but the wider garden area outside the enclosed garden with its river and ponds i...more
