DETACHED STUNNING 7 STOREY WINDMILL WITH HEATED POOL.

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Stoke Ferry - The Old Mill

North Norfolk Coast, Cambridge, Stanstead and Norwich all within 1 Hour.

** Winner 2014 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence **

A totally unique holiday rental, this Grade II Windmill has been completely renovated to provide a stunning holiday home. Standing imposingly within its large garden the Mill offers 360 degree views stretching up to 20 miles from the 7th floor. The garden has heated pool and large BBQ area. The Mill boasts much character - internal beams, oak floors, wood stove, open fires and the former workings of the Old Mill. The huge kitchen/diner has French doors that lead to the garden. The split level heavily beamed sitting room is full of charm and character with the original mill stone as a main feature. The ground floor of the Tower is presented as a stunning formal dining room with round table. Additionally the Mill tower has a games room and three bedrooms with a further 4 bedrooms in the main house. A breathtaking glass walkway connects the house to the mill tower on the first floor.

Outside in the large Games Barn there is a ping-pong table, snooker table and table football.

Pool Information:

The Outdoor Pool is normally available from April to September (inclusive) depending on weather conditions.

We will be happy to heat the pool by arrangement during these months at an extra cost of £30.00 per day. This charge applies for the entirety of the rental period..

As the pool area is close to neighboring gardens we ask that guests exercise consideration and not use offensive language, loud music or shouting in the pool area.

The mini games room in the tower is equipped with TV, DVD, X Box, whilst the larger 50sqm games room by the pool has a full sized ping-pong table, a snooker table and a football table.

Private Dining.: (not available during school holidays)

The hugely popular Old Mill Private Dining Menu is a formal menu, cooked and served for you in the ground floor circular dining room of the Mill Tower on an evening of your choice during your stay.

Private Dining is ideal for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries, and bypasses the complications of a night in a restaurant with small children, taxis, designated drivers etc.

Private Dining Menus use seasonal and local produce where possible.

Unfortunately, Private Dining is not available during school holidays.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 out of 5
The mill surpassed everything we imagined - the photos really don't do it justice! 13 of us stayed there for the weekend and there wasn't one of us who could resist running around like a kid when we first got there to explore all the quirky features.

Roaring fires, squishy sofas, stunning interior, comfy beds..

Perfect for a weekend with (close) friends or family and would make a great retreat for a week with the pool and garden.

Without question the best S/C place we've ever stayed...can't recommend it highly enough.

Excellent accommodation with a twist

  • 5 out of 5
A truly unusual property, which lived up to it's description. A five night stay to celebrate our Ruby Wedding with our children and grandchildren, both 8 months old, was everything we wanted it to be. The Mill exudes a homely, boutique hotel type atmosphere, with spacious accommodation and the bonus of a heated swimming pool, which was most enjoyable. Crisp white linen on the comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, everything we needed was on hand. Also a games room with table tennis and snooker, which went down very well with the guys! The Old Mill is situated in a very beautiful, unspoilt part of England, within easy reach of the coast. The owners were a lovely couple and very helpful; on hand if we needed them. We all had an amazing time and will certainly be visiting the Old Mill again next year!

Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!

  • 4 out of 5
Spent a wonderful weekend here with my family. 15 of us and 2 dogs!! From the quirky workings of the tower creating interesting accommodation to the spacious kitchen and relaxing areas. With a large group of people this place was perfect. You can congregate in the large kitchen or spend some quiet time in the many rooms. The heated pool was perfect for the kids and adults. Plenty of activities in the games room and equipment provided for cricket, tennis, badminton etc.The main bathroom is finished to a high spec and the floor standing candelabra adds a class touch to a relaxing bath!!

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending or returning to this beautiful place.

Fields nearby were perfect for long walks with the dogs.

Amazing

  • 5 out of 5
Our family have just spent the weekend at this fabulous property. I booked the Old Mill for my husband's birthday and it didn't disappoint. We are 14 people in total (age range 7 - 70) and there was so much space for everyone. The bedrooms are unique, particularly in the tower and the view at the top of the tower is simply stunning. The master suite is huge and my husband and I were very comfortable. The house was so well equipped with everything you need for a family of fourteen of varying ages. We didn't see much of the grandchildren (age range 7 - 17) as they were either in the pool, playing snooker, table tennis, football or lounging on the comfy sofas on their phones or iPad as there is also Wi-Fi at the Old Mill. We took advantage of the Fine Dining Experience on Sunday evening for my husband's birthday. Our meal was prepared by the owner Gary, helped by two lovely young waiters who were very professional. We ate at the large round ding table which sits at the bottom of the tower and the food and presentation were first class, so thank you Gary. The pool can be heated on request and was warm enough for swimming on a chilly May day and well used by us all. From the booking process made through Sandra who is Gary's wife to the very small detail, nothing was too much trouble and once at the Old Mill you can completely relax and unwind. Our weekend far exceeded my expectations and I know the family will be talking about their time at the Old Mill for a very long time. I have no hesitation in recommending this 5 Star property.

Thank you so much to Sandra and Gary for letting our family stay in this wonderful property which I have no hesitation in recommending. 5 Star.

The perfect weekend!

  • 5 out of 5
I booked the Old Mill for a surprise 40th birthday weekend for my husband and his friends. We could not have been more impressed by this outstandingly beautiful property!

Everybody who came was bowled over by the unique, sumptuous accommodation-perfect for a large party (we were 14). We made good use of the many facilities in the mill and enjoyed the local area too.

The owners are so friendly and accomodating, nothing is too much trouble to them. Their recommendations (local pubs/restaurants) were great too.

I am now desperately searching for my next excuse to return!

As others have said, the photographs do not do it justice-it is amazing!

Stunning, beautful, fantastic and much more!

  • 5 out of 5
What a fantastic holiday home! We stayed here for a week with friends and family to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday and it couldn't have been better. The mill itself is charming and beautifuly decorated with nooks and crannies to investigate all around. We couldn't get our 4 year old daughter out of the swimming pool which was heated to perfection. Not one of us could fault our stay and we were all sad to leave. Sandra was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay so thank you for allowing us to share this special occassion in such a special location. I would highly recommend this holiday venue to anyone wanting something extra special.

The Tower mill, which is linked to the main house on both the ground floor via the entrance hallway and first floors via the glass walkway has two doubles and a single room which all interconnect. Guests must note that these cannot be closed off from one another and so offer a reduced level of privacy. The large circular ground floor of the Tower mill is a formal dining room seating up to 15 at a round table. Please note bedroom 7 is on the 5th floor of the Mill so we feel it is unsuitable for a young child, but would however suit a responsible teenager or a single adult. A junior bed and travel cots can be provided if either of these is required.
