Red Mill was one of ten windmills originally built to power drainage pumps for the surrounding marshland of Haddiscoe Island. Grade ll listed the mill has been renovated to provide comfortable accommodation over four floors. There are stunning views of the River Yare and towards Burgh Castle. There is an abundance of wildlife on the marshes and they are used for grazing for cattle between April and October.

Haddiscoe Island is a unique landscape being an inland island consisting of approximately 2,000 acres of marshland adjacent to the River Yare and River Waveney. The area is rich in wildlife, deer are frequently seen, together with marsh harriers, herons, geese and owls to name but a few. Cattle graze freely during most of the year. It is an area of huge skies and stunning sunsets, out here you feel a million miles away from the world however the coast is within ten miles and if a little retail therapy is required the beautiful cathedral city of Norwich is just twenty-four miles away where you will find theatres, museums, shops, restaurants and coffee shops.

We enjoyed a very special week in a unique property. It was perfect for dog walking and a place to wind down away from the world. Our teenage kids loved it even though there was no WiFi! Peter Bailey - 16th April 2018
