“Great location with friendly and welcoming owners ”

Have always enjoyed visiting Little Norton. This year was my 7th time and I will continue to stay there in the future. The location is ideal to visit places during the day and then return to a very relaxing environment in the evening

“Most enjoyable stay.”

The accommodation was first class with everything that was needed. The fittings and furnishings were of very high standard and the cottage was very clean. The owners were friendly and helpful.

Great Accomodation in Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented and well equipped accommodation in surely one of the most beautiful villages in Somerset! This is a real treasure of a find, once of the best cottages we have stayed at and we have stayed in a lot over the years!

We stayed in Tamerisk , one of the 2 bed cottages. The accommodation is very well thought out, has absolutely everything you need ,very clean & comfortable ( lovely beds!) and very cosy & warm. Then there are the gardens, absolutely beautiful and lots of space to find a quiet spot, we had beautiful autumn weather so we sat out quite a bit. The back of the cottages overlooks the mill pond which is very idyllic. Little Norton Mill is on the edge of Norton Sub Hamdon a very pretty village, where all the houses are made of the lovely local Ham stone, it also has a great pub serving great food! Lots of lovely walks locally in the area surrounding Ham Hill and Montacute House close by. We are so glad we discovered Little Norton Mill we will be back very soon.
