Sampson's Mill is a beautiful little property down a country lane but within a few minutes walk of the lovely town of Wickham Market. Definitely worth a visit, we'd love to go back.

Mrs F,

The mill ticks all the boxes, clean, comfortable, good location and friendly helpful owners. There are so many places to visit within a small radius and well stocked shops 5 minutes walk away. Wall to wall sunshine helped our visit, perhaps Suffolk is always like that!!

Mr S,

Interesting building in a good location for visiting the local area. Friendly welcome on arrival.

Mrs R,

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.

Mr L,

Ideal location, whether for relaxing or visiting attractions. A lovely property, in a lovely village with lovely Suffolk folk.

Mr M,

Very comfortable accommodation well kitted out great location for many places, definitely recommend a stay here

Mrs G,

Lovely property in quiet location. Extremely well equipped. Well maintained. Charming and helpful hosts. Local shops nearby.

Mrs G,

A lovely property, comfortable, clean and in a good position. We hope to return soon.

Mr S,

We really enjoyed our stay at Sampson’s Mill and it certainly was a great base to explore the area. Kevin and Lyn were very friendly and we appreciated the items that were waiting for us on our arrival. We would not hesitate in recommending Sampson’s or staying there again in the future.

Previous Customer,

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.

Steve C

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.

Mr David G
