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.
Having stayed at Mendham Mill before we knew what to expect and as ever we were pleased to be back. James and Nick ( the onsite owners ) were on hand to greet us and update us on any on site changes and we soon relaxed into North Meadow Cottage.
The view out of the folding doors onto the patio and towards the river and beyond onto fields with grazing cattle with their calves, mature trees along the river banks stretching into the distance with the big skies above, allowing you slow down and relax into your surroundings.

Two of us stayed at The Nest while our larger family group were in another property, so we didn't spend much time in it, but the property is perfect for two. Comfy sofas, well-equipped kitchen and a generous space in all respects - nothing poky here! The courtyard garden at the back is perfect for a sunny morning coffee, and the piano - the main reason we came to Mendham Mill - was wonderful. The house was very generously supplied with more than the basics and Nick and James were the perfect hosts. We can't wait to come back!
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely characterful accommodation with lovely grounds and great faciliities on site.
A good time was had by all, fishing, canoeing, playing pool and table tennis and relaxing in the beautiful gardens with sunny and shady areas to suit all our needs. We experience a heatwave for the week we stayed and appreciated that the bedrooms remained cool and we had great nights sleep in comfortable beds.
We would love to return and will highly recommend to others!
Mendham Mill is a beautiful location and we loved swimming in the river and taking the boats out (and the kids loved the games room). We took day trips to the beach and enjoyed some fabulous meals locally. A very relaxing stay - thank you Nick & James.
