A charming and cosy riverside hotel with meadowy surrounds in Sudbury - breakfast, one dinner and afternoon tea included

Set in the historic market town of Sudbury in Suffolk, The Mill Hotel is a country hotel with plenty of charm. Overlooking the river Stour on one side and a grassy meadow on the other, it's a serene and pretty place to escape to for a few days, lying directly between Bury St Edmunds and the ancient Roman town of Colchester.

Set out on foot to explore the surrounding countryside, visit the house of iconic artist Thomas Gainsbourgh or hop in the car for a short drive to the Suffolk Coast's sandy beaches or the lush wetland broads. The rustic Mill Restaurant uses ingredients sourced, where possible, from nearby farms and local markets - you'll enjoy pairing classic British dishes with a wide range of wines, for a perfectly satiating evening.
