We would like to welcome you to Woodford Mill, Ringstead – one of the most beautiful and tranquil places to come and spend your holidays.

Located on the picturesque River Nene, you are welcome to moor your boat at our marinas, stay in one of our cosy holiday cottages or even set up camp here.

If you have your own narrow boat or leisure cruiser, we offer all the usual mooring facilities, such as water and electricity hook-up, laundry room and fuel sales.  Please click on either the Willy Watt or Blackthorn Marina tab at the top of this page to view the full range of services we offer. 

For those of you who prefer to keep your feet on dry land, we have two lovely holiday cottages available to let, converted from the old water mill.  These have been tastefully decorated and feature all the modern conveniences you would expect.  With bags of charm and stunning views from every window, these make a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside.  Please click on the Holiday Lets tab at the top of this page to view the picture gallery the full range of services we offer. 

We also have a camp site, again with all the facilities you would expect for setting up tents or campervans.  Pitches can be hired on a nightly or weekly basis.  Please click on the Camping tab at the top of this page for full details.

Whilst you are here, why not hire a narrow boat for the day and go exploring along the scenic River Nene.  Can there be anything more civilised than gently floating down the river with your party and enjoying a picnic?  Tuition is provided for novices and the boat is easy to navigate.  Please click on the Day Boat Hire tab at the top of this page for more details and terms and conditions. 

After a morning spent exploring the lakes or enjoying a spot of fishing, come and experience the delights of our tea room.  Offering a range of hot and cold food and drink, it’s the perfect place for a light snack or lunch.

Woodford Mill is situated between Woodford and Ringstead, and both of these villages offer traditional country pubs, featuring mouth watering home cooked food and real ale.  Ringstead village is situated approximately 1 mile away and offers a host of local amenities, such as a village shop, post office, hairdressers and quite possibly the best fish and chip shop! 

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Clive & Emily.
