  • A charming converted mill in the pretty village of Wickham Market - the perfect romantic retreat for two
  • Dating back almost 250 years, it has a delightful interior with a wealth of original beams
  • Located in a quiet lane on the outskirts of the village with views of surrounding countryside
Property code: OC-SAMP

Settle into this quirky couple’s bolthole for a memorable getaway in a converted mill from the 1700s with round rooms, wooden beamed ceilings and English country decor. While away your time on romantic nature walks and lazy beach days in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty before hunkering down in the cosy lounge with a winding staircase or dining alfresco with a bottle of bubbly in the tranquil garden.

Approaching this property you’ll be struck by the unique shape of the exterior – which resembles a tower of a castle. Step inside to discover the unique circular lounge/diner with a splash of elegant pinks, two plump sofas, an intimate dining table with chairs plus a TV. Cook a meal for two in the bright ‘L’-shaped kitchen decorated with shades of green and plenty of natural light streaming through the skylights, large windows and glass patio door. Completing the ground floor is a bathroom. Climb the wooden, curved staircase to reach the chic double bedroom with an en-suite. Outside is a patio with furniture.

During your stay in the large countryside village of Wickham Market, you’ll have a handful of shops and restaurants within 1 mile. Browse the selection of plants at the nearby garden centre (1 mile) or fill your day with history at the Bentwaters Cold War Museum (5.5 miles). Head into the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for some bird watching at the RSPB Boyton and Hollesley Marshes (10.5 miles) and follow the nature trails at National Trust Orford Ness (11 miles). Spend a day at Sudbourne Beach (13 miles) and wander along the seafront to reach the quaint town of Aldeburgh (12.5 miles) which is full of Tudor-style architecture.

Lovely compact cottage but with all anyone could want in it. Owners were friendly but not intrusive, they recommended somewhere to eat on our first night which was a hit. Pretty central for most tourist attractions.

Lovely, comfortable property, perfect for two people. Owners are very friendly & accommodating. Wickham Market is a small town with a Co-op & a few takeaways with an amazing fish & chip shop. Sampsons Mill is a great base for visiting the wonderful Suffolk coast & countryside.

A beautiful and unique property, in a great location and centre for exploring a wide area of the coast and countryside. A very private hide-away, but the owners were on hand should anything be needed. Shops for essentials were also just a ten minute walk away. My favourite nearby location was Woodbridge (5 miles away) where there was plenty to sRead moreee and do, and a wonderful river-side walk to get away from everything (bird-watching excellent especially at low tide). Recommended without reservation. Hide

Sampsons mill was a fantastic find. Peaceful and quite location but close enough to Wickham market for places to eat, either walking or driving. Very well equipped holiday cottage with very pleasant owners. If you want a quirky place to stay look no further.

Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The mill was quaint and a little difficult to find but our stay was very comfortable. Everything worked well. Thank you.

This is a lovely property for a romantic break, and it was in spotless condition when we arrived. The proprietor was most helpful with directions and on arrival. We had a wonderful break and hope that we shall be able to return before long.

This is a beautifully converted compact property in a great location. It has a high standard of cleanliness and is very well equipped. The proximity to the village is excellent for day to day supplies, cafes and takeaways although the pubs (excellent by the way) are a little further afield! There is secure storage for cycles and some lovely walRead moreks and rides to be had straight from the door. Snape, Aldburgh and Woodbridge are only a short drive away. Lovely friendly and helpful owners too. Would definitely recommend this property Hide

Gorgeous place to stay just for two. We don't normally book places just for two people because they can be tiny but not Sampson's Mill. This is especially important in the winter months when you may find yourselves holed up for the day because of the weather as we did. Warm welcome from our hosts. Great location for exploring Suffolk.
