This is a converted windmill and there are plenty of references to it's past use. Lovely and cosy with plenty of hot water. Nice quiet location. A warm welcome from the owners and you are free to wander round their garden.

Peaceful and quiet while at the same time central to all the places we wanted to see and visit. Mr. and Mrs Fisher made us feel real welcome and were always there for any questions we had. We immediately felt at home at The Old Mill. The small village of Matishall has a comfy pub and we had a couple of relaxing meals there, while it's also close toRead more bigger towns when one a bigger selection to shop and restaurants. We most certainly had a very positive experience and our week just flew by. Hide

We had the perfect holiday and can't wait to go again. Don and Margaret were the perfect owners and made us feel like special guests. We loved the peaceful surrounding and enjoyed feeding the pony everyday. Didn't want to go home. The mill was so quirky could not fault a thing. Didn't even mind only having a bath and no shower.

The cottage is lovely to look at from outside. Inside it has a deliberately old fashioned, quaint charm. The edge of village location provides country quiet yet local amenities are within walking distance. Its USP is the hosts who are just a delightful couple.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
