Over 200 years old, the five storey, Grade II listed Trickers Mill is nestled in the Suffolk market town of Woodbridge, on the picturesque River Deben.

Ideal for a couple who want to escape into a beautiful combination of history and nature, the mill’s ground and first floors have been elegantly restored into relaxing, light-filled accommodation.

The entrance hallway features floor-to-ceiling windows, for the ultimate in warm welcomes, while the characterful living area is cosily furnished, with bare walls, beamed ceilings, and a wood-burner to warm your evenings.

The kitchen area, with its curved walls and contemporary appliances, is perfectly equipped for mealtimes. On sunny days, you may want to enjoy the fruits of your culinary labours out on the private, suntrap courtyard, chatting away over a glass or two of wine.

Head up the spiral staircase to discover a sumptuous, comfort-filled bedroom, complete with soft lighting and a downy superking bed, and a pretty bathroom with a bath and shower over.

There are more stairs leading from the bedroom, straight into a mesmerising time capsule that showcases the original mill stones and machinery that were used centuries ago. 

Pass through these fascinating stone and bin floors to reach the very top of the mill, where you’ll be rewarded with soothing views that lead your gaze all the way out to the river.

Things to note
