About Peter Downs

We moved up to Norfolk in semi-retirement from professional life in London in 2004 and choose the Mill because of its outstanding location. The holiday cottages were seen as an enhancement to our pensions.

Peter Downs purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Peter Downs chose North Norfolk & Coast

We decided on the Mill because of its outstanding location. Supremely peaceful it sits astride the River Bure in its own extensive, riverside gardens. Views are fantastic, wild-life abundant. A big plus for us was an excellent pub literally at the end of our drive. We didn't know this part of Norfolk at all but feel we have very much fallen on our feet. Itteringham is a tiny village with a lively social life and a great community run shop. It's close to the main attractions but far enough away to avoid crowds, noise and traffic. The countryside is gently rolling with a patchwork of fields and woodland - ideal for walking or cycling. There is a very wide range of things to see and do in North Norfolk from Stately Homes to working mills, to nature reserves, beaches and The Broads

What makes this cottage unique

RIverside setting is great for wild-life - more than 50 species of birds have been seen in the garden including Kingfishers, Green woodpeckers and Little Egret. Occasional otters can be seen in the river and a variety of deer in the garden.

Excellent gastro-pub is at the end of our drive.

Extensive and extremely peaceful gardens.

Well-stocked village shop a 5 minute walk away.

We operate as a demonstration site for a range of renewable technologies including micro-hydro, heat pump, solar thermal hot water, rainwater recycling, and other energy and water saving devices.

Come here to unwind, enjoy nature and eat well.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The cottages have access to the mill's gardens which comprises lawns, mature trees and beds mostly of shrubs. The River runs through the garden which is a haven for all manner of wild-life. Please be aware that the river is unfenced and could be a hazard for unsupervised children. The Mill is now used as a private residence. Outside: The Mill's gardens are available for our guests to use and comprise several acres (including a paddock) of lawns, mature trees, rose-beds, shrubs and river. The River Bure runs through the garden (and under the Mill itself). This combination of river, garden and surrounding wooded areas and fields ensure a great environment for wildlife. There is ample gravelled car-parking space around the cottages and in front of the mill. There are a number of outdoor seats scattered about and a portable (non-gas) barbecue available for guest use. Swallow Cottage has its own private garden.
