A warm welcome to Mill Farm
From Neil, Emma, Hannah, Eva and Bernie the dog!
After living in London and Bristol we decided to return to Neil’s homeland of Norfolk to bring up our family and start our business at Mill Farm; one where we can share our love and knowledge of the area and its wildlife, beauty spots and local food and ale!
We want you to feel at home at Mill Farm from the moment you walk in the door. We’ve tried to think of everything ...
We have stocked the barns with cots, high chairs, toys, games, books, films, a buggy and a baby carrier. The games barn and chickens (returning in Spring 2019) also provide even more things to do on-site.
For walkers and dog lovers
There is a footpath from the barns straight into open countryside. We provide a local walking guide including dog friendly beaches, pubs, cafes, Broads National Park, and nearby seal colony.
For chefs and foodies
We have created a kitchen garden to collect seasonal fruit and vegetables. Our welcome cakes are legendary and we can recommend a superb local butchers and farm shop. We can also tell you the top place to eat
For wildlife lovers
we have made a 2.5 acre site into a wildlife haven by creating a (fenced) wildlife pond, planting an orchard and native hedge, putting up bird boxes and managing our paddocks for wildflowers.
For wheelchair users
the Eco barn living space, twin bedroom and wet is all on one floor. Doorways are wide and their is a ramp up to the barn. The Hay barn is all on one level with wide doorways too. We haven't yet found a solution to the gravel drive though, but we are looking.
Our commitment to stylish eco-friendly accommodation includes:
- Natural, local and reclaimed building materials including brick and flint.
- Rainwater harvesting to flush the toilets and wash clothes.
- Biomass boiler burning wood pellets for heating and hot water.
- Green energy tariff for electricity making us carbon neutral.
- Energy efficient appliances and lighting.
- Eco-friendly cleaning products and minimal plastic use.
