Having been restored by its current owners, the absolute highlight of The Windmill Suffolk has got to be the amazing & cosy living room which is found on the top floor, with the most incredible, uninterrupted views of the surrounding area. The room is tastefully decorated with a large oversized velvet corner sofa, warm blankets and there is an extended balcony for sundowners. The unique furniture has been cleverly been chosen to complement the curves of the building and kitted out to a high spec.

On the ground floor, there is a fully equipped modern kitchen/diner with a double oven, fridge/freezer, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. An oval dining table comfortably seats 4. There are bi-folding doors which open up to a lovely outside patio area. A separate WC is also found on the ground floor. Two gorgeous double bedrooms are found on the first and third floors, each with king sized beds, adorned with luxurious linens, velvet throws and cushions. Hairdryers are supplied in both bedrooms. The first-floor bedroom can be arranged as 2 single beds upon request. A separate marble bathroom is shared and comes complete with a free standing oval bath, fluffy dressing gowns, slippers and a large walk-in shower and WC. Complimentary Elemis toiletries are an added touch of luxury.

The Suffolk Windmill is ideally located close to the market town of Lavenham, 10 minutes from Bury St Edmunds and 40 minutes from Cambridge all with various tourist attractions and dining options. Nearer by there are fantastic walks, National Trust properties and other activities.

Prices start from £650 for a mid-week 2-night break for 2 people. There is a 3 night minimum stay for Christmas and New Years breaks.
