Mendham Mill

Mendham Mill was the home and inspiration for the celebrated painter Alfred Munnings and was a working mill until the 1930s. It has been transformed by the attentive owners into a luxury setting for a riverside idyll in four cottages sleeping 2,4 or eight people. The well-equipped Miller’s House with four bedrooms has style and comfort and numerous extra features. The beautiful garden is on the river with private fishing and two canoes and a rowing boat available; with children in mind, part of the garden is a secure gated courtyard with a parasol and barbecue. There are also three other holiday cottages available.

The setting here is unique – the Mill overlooks the water meadows of the peaceful River Waveney where swans glide by and elusive kingfishers can be spotted. Mendham village straddles the Norfolk/Suffolk border and just three miles away, Harleston is a traditional Norfolk market town with a good range of independent shops, restaurants and pubs along its historic streets.

Beyond the town lies the Suffolk Heritage Coast, with the picturesque coastal town of Southwold worth a special mention. For more active pursuits, Thetford Forest, a short drive away, offers good opportunities for walking and cycling in the country’s largest lowland pine forest.

A similar distance to the north, the fine cathedral city of Norwich has an enchanting mix of medieval buildings and cobbled streets, as well as superb modern shopping in its malls, open air market and winding lanes.
