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.

Reviews

Stayed at Mill cottage as a surprise for my wife’s 50th birthday, she was over the moon when showing her where we were staying . The cottage is truly exceptional and a magical place to relax and unwind. It is both characterful with a very modern interior. On arrival we found a birthday card and bottle of wine for my wife from the owners also luxury biscuits, orange juice, milk, tea, coffee, such thoughtful touches and very much appreciated. The owners were fantastic and went out of their way to help,recommending a restaurant- The Brisley Bell where we managed to book a table at short notice and had a wonderful meal. The cottage has everything and more you could wish for, including a great selection of dvd’s and books. We lit the log burner a couple of times and was so nice to sit in the lounge area with a drink curled up on the sumptuous sofas enjoying the glow of the fire.Such a stunning location with views across to the mill I cannot rate this cottage highly enough, it was very hard to leave , but will return again soon. I am so glad I booked this cottage for my wife’s birthday it was one of the best holidays we have ever had and we have stayed in many areas of the U.K.

Mr Paul P,

The property was furnished to an excellent standard and exceeded our expectations. The property had everything we needed for a family Christmas. Small touches such as the Christmas decorations and welcome gifts were hugely appreciated. We will certainly return next time we are in the area.

Ms Louisa M,

It was in a beautiful setting and everything we needed was there. Excellent.

Mrs Helen B,

A first class property in a beautiful setting.

Mr Brian B,

This cottage was absolutely amazing; it far surpasses, in all aspects, anything we have ever stayed in before. Its five star rating does not do it justice. We hope to return in the future.

Mr John O,

This is a lovely property in a quite location overlooking the mill pond. Everything inside and out was was top quality and spacious.

Ms Rachel S,

We have been all around the UK on an annual self catering holiday since 1996 and can honestly say that Mill Cottage was the most pristine property that we have ever stayed in! It is superb, and would thoroughly recommend it.

Mrs Pat C,
