Guest reviews

Lovely clean and well looked after accommodation in nice surroundings. The cottage was very comfortable and much use was made of the outside seating area. Comfortable beds and a lovely shower at the of a long day's walking. A lovely stay and one of the best accommodation we have stayed in.

The Grolys , 23rd of May 2024

This is our third holiday at Old Mill cottage and we have booked a fourth for this September 27th from which you can deduce we rather like it there. Weather was good and we enjoy visiting the local sights and hostelries and generally relaxing in very comfortable surroundings and our dog is safe in the enclosed garden.

The Ruiz's, 22nd of May 2024

We (two couples and our two legged friends) loved our stay at the Old Mill Cottage. The "cottage" is finished to a very high level whilst the outlook and grounds are beautiful and tranquil. We were lucky enough for sun at Easter but also had an afternoon of rain when the wood burner looking at the views came into its own! Also recommend adding the hot tub to your booking!Stay Highlights: - Stunning location and outlook - Property finished to a v high level (and v clean) - Hot tub v easy to use.

The Bilson's, 8th of April 2024

Lovely accommodation, very very quiet. Fabulous outlook and great views from all windows Would certainly recommend (and we have stayed in hundreds of self catering accommodation). Lots of places to eat nearby Holt garden centre do nice meals and fantastic cakes. We took our bird feeders and watched many species at least 8 .

The Sleath's, 18th of March 2024

Quiet. Great garden for dog. Very happy to stay there for our 2nd time. We have booked for 2 weeks in the summer, it’s ideal for us.

The Hinton's, 24th of November 2023

This was our second holiday this year at the Old Mill Cottage and we plan to return in April next year. For us, it is very restful and easy and very importantly the garden is fenced so we are able to let our dog loose without worry. Standards of cleanliness are impeccable and we just enjoy being here, We were fortunate to have good weather for the whole of our ten day stay, unlike our stay in March when apart from one day it rained . We were able to enjoy sitting out in the garden area enjoying the views and making the most of what we enjoy in the area, walks with our dog and expeditions to visit local beaches and The Parlour cafe.

Mr Ruiz, 5th of October 2023

Modern open plan cottage in a lovely quiet location and good private garden for our dog.

The Green's, 29th of July 2023

The baby rabbits and the views. Sunrise and peacefulness.

The Palmer's, 19th of June 2023

Fabulous home. If it is vacant for your dates, book immediately. Fitted and furnished at top level, stunning location and wonderful enclosed garden. Had the most amazing few days and will definitely return. If you love peace and tranquility, wildlife galore and glorious views, this is the place for you. The Natural Surroundings at Bayfield Park is a great place to visit. Wildlife gardens, plants to buy and a smashing coffee shop. Brancaster beach is stunning and great for dogs, also has a kiosk selling coffee and great sausage sandwiches. Binham Priory, Holkham Hall well worth a visit and Back to the Garden farm shop and Little Walshingham farm shop good for food shopping.

The Foot's, 6th of June 2023

The ‘cottage ‘ is immaculate , very comfortable and tastefully presented. The large grounds and views were much enjoyed despite the awful weather. The owners have made a very fine job of the cottage but most of all the beautiful restoration of the Mill, it’s lovely.Lunch at The Parlour in Binham was excellent.

The Ruiz's, 5th of April 2023

The accommodation was just what we wanted for a few days away with our young dogs. Cosy and warm and very comfortable.Location was perfect for walks on the beach too. Would highly recommend.

The McLaren's, 20th of March 2023

The cottage is set in picturesque and tranquil surroundings with a delightful outlook onto the adjacent windmill. The garden is large and provides good space for children to play. The accommodation is generally well appointed and with a good level of quality furnishing. It has an ease of access to local areas so overall a lovely place to stay

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property.
