Contemporary 2 bedroom 2 ensuite cottage set within the historic setting of Letheringham Watermill - an idyllic waterside Suffolk hideaway

The property is set away from our main house in a setting of three cottages all linked by an outside decked area which is appealing for watching the world go by

The space

No doubt our riverside location makes this cottage 5***** setting really unique - as so many guests say our setting is so much better than the images we have on this site it's hard to capture digitally the serene beauty that Letheringham Mill site and grounds has to offer

Guests love the peace & quiet strengthened by the fabulous comments our visitor books are full of compliments for our high standards in cleanliness & interior design - we have a first class housekeeping team who keeps the old stables sparkling

Inside there is a fabulous bespoke modern kitchen by a local kitchen designers Luxmoore - having everything you should need in a home away from home - including Bosch built in appliances for Oven/Hob/Extractor with dishwasher and washer/dryer

The bedrooms with Willis & Gambier bedroom furniture with memory foam relyon mattresses having their own ensuites so ideal for guests sharing the cottage wanting their own bathrooms

Excellent wireless wifi available with BT phone for local UK calls as mobile signals can be intermittant outside of Vodafone users

All on one level without any stairs it's easy to navigate around with a spacious air about The Old stables - There is a back door onto the decking on the riverside which is a large communal deck shared by all three cottages sited here

We have a communal door between The Hayloft and Old Stables which is locked during individual bookings but can be opened to enlarge this into a larger rental place of up to 8 guests

We supply Tea,coffee & sugar in all cottages and basic supplies such as olive oil, salt & Pepper, Milk, water & sparkling water - we supply tablets/salt/rinse aid for the dishwasher & laundry washing in the kitchen cupboards plus kitchen foil and cling film as we feel sometimes it's really hard to carry everything on a trip and hope this helps guests to manage their break - of course a complimentary bottle of wine too to welcome you here..............

Guest access

We have gardens & grounds of 7 acres - so easy to walk around the property and enjoy the surroundings - plenty of benches and patio seating around to relax

Dogs are very welcome - we have two dogs and a cat on site here who love mingling with the guests and if you need them to show you around they will do !!! If bringing a dog all we ask is that you do pick up your dogs waste especially on our main lawn and garden areas - please bag and remove to the grey lidded general waste bin - in the bin store in the car parking area for the cottages

In the summer May - September we have BBQ areas set up in the lower meadows which have implements for you to use in the cottages and plenty of wood around for you to use freely for your BBQ fire pits - great to do

Everything on site is key coded from the main gate to your cottage front door which makes access at whatever time perfect for the guests to arrive and suit yourselves without having to check in with us - we like this approach as it gives you more privacy and if you want to speak with us we're here if not enjoy

Do enjoy this amazing setting as so many guests say our setting is so much better than the images we have on this site it s hard to capture digitally the serene beauty that Letheringham Mill site and grounds has to offer

Interaction with guests

we are around & on hand if needed - but having your key code lock for easy access is built around privacy for you to have during your stay
Enjoy !

Although we do have three exuberant animals on site who will greet you with vigour at every opportunity that's Teddy & Amber out Labradoodles and Eel our Burmese cat who thinks she's a Labradoodle !

We rented the Old Stables for the weekend as we were in the area for a wedding at nearby Easton Grange. It was perfect - an absolutely lovely setting, beautiful interiors and everything you need for a great weekend away. Check in and out were very easy. Definitely recommended!

Jacqui and Richard have transformed the Old Mill estate into a retreat befitting of all who long for the Old English charm and setting awaiting in Sussex. The accommodations have been updated with modern amenities, graciously stocked with necessities, and the interiors have been beautifully furnished and decorated by Jacqui. It is a fantastic retreat for young and old and for all dog lovers who enjoy traveling with their furry companions. We were particularly impressed that, although dogs are welcome to stay in the cottages and roam the grounds, Jacqui and Richard have neither cut corners nor compromised on the quality of the cottages and their surroundings. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with magnificent gardens and meandering streams. Anyone who visits would miss out on a very special treat if they dare not take the time to explore. There are even romantic settings where quests can enjoy a picnic or share a bottle of wine. We are grateful to Jacqui and Richard for their wonderful creation and for their warm hospitality.

We stayed in this cottage over the Xmas period and found it a very warm, well decorated and charming place to stay. The environment around the mill is beautiful and the Christmas lights outside the cottage were magical. Would definitely come again in the future.
