Elsing is a delightful village in the Wensum valley surrounded by peaceful farmland and water meadows. The village is widely spread with a selection of interesting buildings such as The Mill on the edge of the River Wensum, moated Elsing Hall and at the centre the parish church of St Mary dating from 1347. There is also a traditional village pub that serves good food. Elsing is well placed to explore the surrounding area: the villages, marshes and beaches of the Norfolk coast are just over half an hour's drive, and the cathedral city of Norwich is a twenty minute drive away. Closer to home you will find attractive villages such as Lyng, Bintree and Reepham where you will find independent shops selling local produce, plus tea shops, pubs and restaurants offering brunch, lunch and dinner. The area is great for walking, cycling, bird watching, golf and fishing or just relax and enjoy the countryside.


Lovely cottage in a quiet rural location. Extremely well equipped and clean. The summerhouse is absolutely beautiful and we spent much of our time there overlooking the mill pond. There is river swimming nearby and lovely walks from the cottage along country lanes and paths. Otherwise an exceptional cottage and highly recommended for a family holiday.

Mrs L,

We visited in heatwave week. Very enjoyable in Mill Cottage for two days using the excellent fans provided. Overall a very enjoyable week in a exceptionally well equipped cottage.

Mrs W,

Our second visit to Mill cottage, and we will be returning again. Beautiful place, the best we have been to. The Summer House overlooking the Mill Pond just makes it a magical spot to relax in. Lovely owners and a nice welcome pack. Thank you again Lisa

Mrs C,

This is an excellent property, The cottage was spotless and had everything we wanted and more. The summerhouse by the mill pond was an added bonus and a great location for barbecues, glass of wine or two and coffee. We had some amazing sunsets. It’s in a good location for exploring Norfolk. Would definitely come back and stay in this cottage, it is well deserving of its 5 stars.

Miss M,

This is our 4th visit to Mill Cottage which is ideal for all the family (all 4 generations!). Good location for most of North Norfolk, with something new to discover each visit. Also great for any 'stay at home' or bad weather days - with the summer house overlooking the mill pond. Looking forward to returning again.

Ms M,

My wife and I have been enjoying self catering cottage holidays for some 40 years. Mill Cottage rates among the best we have ever used. Designed for 6 people with "on suite" shower / bath rooms for each of the 3 double bedrooms, superbly equipped kitchen and dining facilities, comfortable furnishings and a welcome pack including fresh flowers, all contributed to a restful and enjoyable holiday. On last thing. The Summer House overlooking the Mill pond is an ideal location for enjoying a chilled glass of white wine while watching the sun go down in the evening. We look forward to going back again.

Previous Customer,

Mill cottage exceeded our expectations. It was lovely , clean, modern and well equipped. Set in beautiful surroundings with a gorgeous summer house over looking the pond and the mill. We had a lovely weeks stay while spending time visiting family in Norfolk. We would thoroughly recommend Mill cottage. It was just lovely.

Mrs W,

Idyllic situation, with view of mill. A real country retreat.

Mr T,

This property did not disappoint, we recently stayed for a family celebration and found the cottage to be absolutely stunning, beautifully furnished, and very clean. You had everything you needed for a fantastic stay, we even made use of the board games as the weather was against us, but to be honest it wasn't a hardship having to stay in the comfort of the cottage. We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy the summer house and bbq and would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Mr B,

This was a return visit to this lovely cottage. The cottage and location are superb in every respect.Very considerate and friendly owners who provide everything you need for a great holiday break. A haven of peace.

Mr O,

A lovely cottage in a pretty location. Beautifully furnished and well equipped with everything you need. Quiet area but near not too far from attractions. Summerhouse a welcome addition although the weather wasn’t good enough to make the most of it!

Mrs M,

This is our second time at Mill Cottage and it is such a lovely setting by the mill pond. It is such a well equipped and comfortable cottage. Would recommend to any family for their holiday.

Mrs B,

This is a 5 star property, spotlessly clean, equipped to a high standard, and in an excellent location. There is a pub and a very good village shop a mile down the road in Lyng, and we had some great days out from here, to the coast, to Norwich, and to stately homes. The property is very comfortable, and in October when we stayed, kept very warm, with heating and an efficient and easy to light wood burning stove. The beds are comfy, the sofas are comfy, everything feels warm and welcoming, and everything works! We would strongly recommend this cottage as one of the best we have stayed in.

Mrs R,

What an amazing place! We stayed at Mill Cottage in late September and had one of the best weeks we have ever had for a UK holiday. The Cottage is beautiful , well decorated and equipped but above all just felt like home immediately on walking in. We were really lucky with the weather and decided to spend most days sat by the water with my husband, Dad and his wife fishing. Whilst the sun on my face and the peace and quiet was the highlight for me, for my husband it was the incredible fishing. Huge pikes, the likes I have never seen before, Dace, Chubb, Roach and the odd Crayfish! All to the back drop noise of gushing water. It was such an amazing experience, all on your doorstep. All we can do is recommend Mill Cottage, after all, we did book next year straight away. Thank you to the owners for making such a beautiful place available.

Mr Jason L,

It was a fab property to stay at with a high standard of equipment and provided for all our needs. 3 beds and 3 bathrooms perfect for all of us plus space for 3 cars.

Mrs R,

This property was wonderful and certainly lived up to the images on the website. There was every comfort and the summerhouse was beautiful with its view across the mill pond of Elsing Mill on the River Wensum. A lovely location only a short distance for various amenities.

Mrs S,

Extremely high quality spotless accommodation in a period building. Quiet countryside location near to a river where we spotted a kingfisher! One of the best I’ve stayed at and many things to do and see in Norfolk. Summer house was a lovely bonus.

Dr C,

Mill Cottage is an exceptional property finished to a very high standard, It was very clean. The layout is very suitable for a great family holiday and there is a good outdoor eating area with a gas BBQ. The property is in a peaceful location but it is accessible to all areas of North Norfolk and Norwich. In the nearby village [1 mile] there is an excellent shop selling all necessary provisions [you can order fresh bread] and pub. Would highly recommend.

Ms J,

Mill cottage is a most delightful place to stay and explore the Norfolk countryside. We took our cycles with us and kept to the small quiet B roads. Quite lovely. The cottage more than ticked all the boxes for us. Extremely well equipped to a very high standard. Great touches , flowers, wine and biscuits provided. Home from home. We have rebooked for 2022.

Mrs H,

The owners had thought of everything we could need. And it was all high quality fittings. Great holiday.

Mr C,

Fabulous property. Really well equipped and beautifully decorated and maintained. The view from the summer house is what sets this property apart from others - love sitting and watching mill pond flow past. Very highly recommended.

Miss L,

A wonderful relaxing holiday with every facility that you could wish for, peace and tranquillity in abundance. A beautiful location with the added advantage of the summerhouse overlooking the Mill Pond, perfect for afternoon coffee. The quality of the accommodation is outstanding and was greatly appreciated, all being on one level suited us well, as one member of our party had limited mobility. Would highly recommend Mill Cottage for the perfect holiday.

Mrs L,

A wonderful cottage, everything was better than described.

Mr C,

Mill Cottage makes a great base days out in the area, as well as "stay at home" days. Fabulous makeover has made the cottage especially spacious, light & bright, and been completed to a high standard. The summerhouse is ideal for those "chill out" moments! The garden, which is fully enclosed, is especially safe for my young granddaughter to play in.

Ms M,

Lovely situated property in quiet spot but also a great base to explore Norfolk. Very comfortable and clean.

Mr Michael D,

The cottage was perfect, very well equipped and has a lovely personal touch.

Mrs Elena F,
