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.
Great location for day trips to Southwold and the coast or staying local.

The property is ideally located if you are looking for some peace and quiet, amazing views and wildlife. Amenities are very good, with a short walk to the local pub which offers great food and hospitality. Short drive to the town, if you need to do any food shopping. Great to be able to sit outside, and watch the ducks who will keep you company. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week in Mill Race cottage at Mendham Mill. The extensive grounds with the river running through provides a wonderful location, and the view from the back garden is to die for. Everything is beautifully kept by Nick and estate manager Lewis. There are ducks and swans on the river, and we even caught a glimpse of a kingfisher.
The cottage itself is well furnished and we found the beds to be extremely comfortable (pocket sprung mattresses make all the difference), with good quality bedlinen and lovely soft towels. Bathrooms are modern with under fl...more
Lovely stay with all the family for our special birthdays. Walled garden especially great for letting our dog go out. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Canoeing was fun and the children went wild swimming although it was very cold.
