Little Norton Mill Cottages are 4-star self-catering English country holiday cottages set in beautiful landscaped and spacious gardens in the village of Norton Sub Hamden, near Yeovil, South Somerset. Situated next to an 18th Century Water Mill, the four two bedroom cottages, each sleeping four people, overlook the mill pond in a peaceful and relaxing setting. The four one bedroom apartments in the converted barn each sleep two people.

Apartments
The four one-bedroom self-catering apartments near Yeovil Somerset have been carefully designed to provide an ideal environment for a short break or holiday away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. They are an ideal base for walking, touring and visiting the many historic houses and gardens including National Trust properties locally.

The two first-floor apartments, Acer and Paeonia have a lovely view of the orchard and landscaped gardens. You may see badgers, foxes, and even the occasional deer.

The ground floor apartments Erica and Pieris benefit from a secluded patio area with garden furniture, which lends itself to outside dining during the summer months.

Each of the four apartments sleeps two people with a double bedroom, shower room and an open plan lounge and kitchen. Electricity, heating, linen and towels are inclusive. There is a shared laundry room on site (small charge) with a payphone.
Changeover day for Pieris & Paeonia is Friday.
Changeover day for Acer & Erica is Saturday.

The Mill
The first record of the mill is in the Domesday Book. Little Norton Mill is a small, country watermill situated at the foot of Hamdon Hill, to the east of Norton-sub-Hamdon in South Somerset. The mill is a listed Grade ll building. It is built of local limestone, and contains three floors under a plain, clay tiled roof.

The loft and floor extend across the wheel chamber at the east end of the building , enclosing the waterwheel but leaving it clearly visible from the downstream side. The floors and structural timberwork within the mill are predominantly of elm and the whole is generally of late 18th century date, although there was certainly an earlier mill on the site. The mill machinery is basically intact and is nicely representative of a late 18th century layout, with some elements replaced in cast iron during the 19th century.

The mill last ran commercially in about 1920, and the building and machinery were restored during 1996/7.

We have been able to trace the ownership back to 1850, but until recently, no further. We have now had contact with a family called Greenham with evidence of occupation between 1450 and 1850.
