Itteringham Mill, built in 1778, converted into a gentleman's residence in 1938, totally refurbished in 2009. There is a converted barn in the grounds offering two holiday cottages, one sleeping 4 in two double bedrooms, the other sleeping 2 in a galleried bedroom overlooking the millpond. The mill spans the River Bure and has extensive gardens. It is situated in a beautiful and very peaceful part of North Norfolk.
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.

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
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.

Lovely little cottage in beautiful surroundings, extremely peaceful. Nicely situated only a short drive to Cromer and Nowrich. Also lots of nice little towns and villages near by. Highly recommended for a quiet break away from busy day to day life.
A delightful cottage in a stunning location. We really enjoyed our stay. Pleasant and helpful owners were the icing on the cake.
