About & Contact

Stunning views and real plantsman's garden

The ‘upside-down’ house. The two bedrooms are on the ground floor and the large, 35ft living/kitchen/diner runs the full length of the first floor and has marvelous views of the river, both upstream and downstream. A small first-floor balcony leads off the living room but one of the real beauties of this cottage are its gardens at the rear. These are beautifully planted in a series of outside ‘rooms’ running alongside the river. There is a selection of outside furniture and a barbecue.

The cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms. One of these is always a double but the other can be made up either as a double or a twin room. This latter bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom. The separate shower room has a large shower cubicle with a high-pressure shower system.

Anglers can fish from the garden (in season) or elsewhere in the grounds and make use of the canoes or rowing boat.

Reviews for Mill Race Cottage at Mendham Mill

Meet the owner

James Johnston & Nick Unwin

James Johnston and Nick Unwin who live on-site began to transform the mill in 2008. They opened the five cottages (the newest in 2016) in order to share this beautiful location. Luxury isn’t measured by the number of cushions. In their view high pressure water systems, thick curtains, fast and secure WiFi along with a warm welcome and their local knowledge of places and restaurants are probably even more important. Mendham Mill is testament to a horticultural and artistic heritage. Its fabulous gardens have been developed by Nicholas Unwin whose great-grandfather founded Unwins Seeds. James Johnston is Chairman of the Munnings Museum, home to a collection of over 650 paintings by artist Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) PRA, who grew up at Mendham Mill and was inspired by the landscape you see today. They love talking to guests, many of whom have become regular visitors.
