Single holiday let sleeping up to 4 guestsThe Windmill was built in 1824 as a working grain mill, but has been renovated to accommodate up to four people.
It is situated adjoining the National Nature Reserve, in a quiet, picturesque, rural location. A path down the hill leads to the River Ant where the old sailing wherries used to moor to bring their grain up to the windmill to be ground into flour. Guests have use of these mooring facilities and there is boat hire available near-by.
The mill has its own private garden with garden furniture and barbecue; children are welcome to play in the five acres. (livestock permitting.)
The ground floor of the mill is a large garage, with ample room for a car, bicycles, fishing tackle, etc. There is a washing machine in the garage for guest use.
Steps lead up to a large round first floor room, which is a living area, with a big south facing window overlooking the beautiful countryside.
A double bed pushes half under the worktop to form a sofa during the day and there are also two easy chairs.
Also on this floor is a dining table with chairs and a kitchen area with a modern electric cooker, small fridge and freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and iron.
Above the living area there is the bathroom with toilet and a separate single bedroom.
On the next floor is another small bedroom with a 3ft single bed that has the ability of becoming two separate single beds or a 6ft double, but this fills the room.
The hot water in both the kitchen and bathroom is heated electrically and there is electric central heating if needed.
The mill is carpeted throughout, well equipped and comfortable with colour TV and DVD. Pillows and blankets are provided and guests are asked to bring sheets, towels and tea cloths. (If you are travelling by bicycle or train or coming from abroad, then bed linen and towels can be arranged.)
How Hill is located in a conservation area and a well known beauty spot. The Environmental Study Centre for the Broads is found opposite the windmill. The area is famous for its wildlife and walks through the National Nature Reserve. An electric launch runs trips through the dykes to see the wildlife, and takes visitors where public motor craft are forbidden.
The Windmill offers a unique holiday home in the heart of this beautiful unspoilt area of The Broads. It is an ideal place for anyone interested in bird watching, fishing, painting, walking, boating, or just relaxing in picturesque surroundings.
The Mill sleeps up to four and is available for weekly lets, Saturday to Saturday.
