Stow Mill - General Information

Welcome to Stow Mill, the tower corn mill on the north east coast of Norfolk in the parish of Paston. This lovely mill situated in an area designated “of extreme natural beauty” is 6 miles south of Cromer just outside the seaside village of Mundesley on the coast road to Paston.

The mill was built between 1825 and 1827 and operated from 1828 until 1930, a working period of over 100 years. Then ‘out of work’, it was stripped of it’s interior machinery below the brake wheel and turned into a small home but redeemed in 1960 when it was selected for preservation by the Norfolk County Council. From then until 1999 the mill was maintained by a private owner with the help of donations and admission charges.

In 1999 the mill was taken over by the current owners, Roger and Andrea Hough, who carried out considerable restoration work and turned Stow Mill into a tourist attraction. However, despite 17 years of patient application it has now been decided to turn the mill into holiday accommodation. The proposal is for it to be a single double bedroom, romantic holiday let of modern day luxury.

The accommodation will include a top grade kitchen/diner in the glazed extension to the side of the windmill joined by a glass link to the tower itself. Double glazed doors will provide access to a lounge within the ground floor of the mill and a sweeping helical staircase will lead up to the first floor dressing room and bathroom. From this dressing room area another helical stair will climb up to the second floor sumptuous bedroom area.

Development work is now ongoing and it is hoped that bookings will be able to start in the summer of 2017.
