The Mill House

Ludham, Norfolk


The Windmill stands in my garden. It was built in1824 as a working grain mill, but is now fully fitted out as a modern dwelling sleeping up to 4 people.

There is a path down the hill to the River Ant where the old sailing wherries used to moor to bring their grain up to the windmill to be ground into flour.

You are completely free, while staying in my mill, to make every use of these mooring facilities. There is a boatyard at nearby Ludham Bridge from which you can easily hire small craft on an hourly, daily or weekly basis.

The mill has its own private garden with suitable garden furniture and a clothes line; children are welcome to play in any of the five acres (livestock permitting.)


Accommodation Details

The steps lead up to a large, round first floor room which is a living area with a big south facing window overlooking the magnificent countryside; it is well worth bringing binoculars, sometimes a barn owl hunts across the paddock directly in front of the mill and you can also see the ancient ruins of St Benet�s Abbey in the distance.

There is a double bed that pushes half under the worktop to form a settee during the day.

The kitchen area has a modern electric cooker, small fridge and freezer, toaster, coffee maker and iron etc.

Above the living area there is the bathroom with W.C. and one single bedroom. Above that is another small bedroom, with a 3ft single bed that has the ability of becoming two separate single beds or a 6ft double.

The hot water in both the kitchen and bathroom is heated electrically and there is electric central heating if necessary. All electricity is included in the weekly charge.

The mill is carpeted throughout, it is well equipped and comfortable and there is a colour TV with DVD player. I provide crockery, cutlery, pillows and blankets but prefer you to bring your own sheets, towels and tea cloths. (If however you are traveling by bicycle or train or visiting from abroad, then bed linen and towels can be arranged.)

General Details

How Hill is situated about one mile from the pretty village of Ludham, with very adequate local shops. A visit to Rodney in the butchers shop is a must for his famous homemade sausages and �Throwers� the shop is well known for its delicatessen counter and home cured ham. There is also a lovely tearoom opposite the Church offering light lunches and wonderful afternoon teas. Both Norwich and Gt. Yarmouth are about sixteen miles away. Norwich is well worth a visit, being a very historic City. Norwich Castle and the Cathedral are obvious places to study but there are many others. The nearest beach is about nine miles by road; a bit further a field in North Norfolk are the wonderful beaches of Holkham, Brancaster and Cley. Blakeney with its delightful fishing harbour is also well worth a visit.
