Ponden is set in a stunning position and valley and even without any intervention from man is a wonderful place to wander around.  To make this easier work has begun on a series of trails around the grounds.  Several fields are being slowly turned into wild flower meadows and others are going to slowly migrate into being an edible forest.

There is a whole host of wildlife, along with some not so wildlife, at Ponden.   Herons, Kingfishers, Owls, and even the occasional peacock have been sighted at the mill.  There are also deer, including an Albino White deer,  and enough rabbits to keep Beatrix Potter happy for years.

Some of our more unusual inhabitants are Lamprey.  These are a type of jawless vampire fish resembling an eel.  They only live in perfectly clean river water and therefore have become extinct through much of Europe.  In the middle ages they were a delicacy and Henry I of England died after gorging himself on too many.   They have a bad reputation as the Vampire bat of the fish world since some species do feed on the blood of other fish.

Falling Water House

Canopy and Stars

 

dripping4 nOur newest experience is named Falling Water and is designed to be a tranquil escape in a forest setting with views along the Pennine way.

Falling Water was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wrights Fallingwater house in America. Like the original FallingWater it is built on a waterfall. Although some people refer to it as a treehouse because it is partially elevated in a very large tree. The interior styling is in keeping with the FLW ideals with many Japanese influences. The windows go almost 270 degrees around the room and resemble Japanese Soji screens. The sound of the water is always prevalent but not overpowering.

Falling water is not large and can only accommodate two people. Breakfast can either be brought to you in the morning or you can join us in the mill. You will also be brought Tea, Coffee and nibbles during your stay.

Falling Water was featured on George Clarks Amazing spaces and was also used in the opening credits for all of series 8.
