It’s a picture perfect scene. Swans glide past a whitewashed mill, nestled on the riverbank by an ancient bridge, framed by weeping willows. Lush green water-meadows stretch as far as the eye can see. Welcome to The Mill Hotel, a beautifully converted watermill in the quintessential country town of Sudbury, Suffolk.

History and modernity meet here, with soothing, contemporary interiors complementing the mill’s original features, among them the waterwheel itself – an atmospheric centerpiece in the restaurant and relaxing bar. Within minutes of the hotel, picturesque villages dot some of England’s loveliest countryside in scenes made famous by romantic artist John Constable. Isn’t it time you put yourself in the picture?
