Tuddenham Mill is part of the following Inspirations:
"In the summer of 2017 Suffolk’s serene Tuddenham Mill opened its new accommodation, a set of five unusual rooms known as Meadow Nooks. A short walk away from the mill itself, Meadow Nooks look like upturned wooden boats and their curved roofs guarantee cosiness within. In fact for those who have been to Santorini there is something rather familiar about those curved ceilings.
Set apart from the rest of the hotel, the nooks offer romantic, rustic indulgence. Their underfloor heating will make you feel loved and happy in the mornings and one nook even has its own wood-fired al fresco hot tub.
Eighteenth-century Tuddenham Mill was a working mill, grinding floor up until 1954 using power from its mill pond and stream. Its conversion into a successful hotel has been aided in recent years by local chef Lee Bye who has won a number of awards for the Mill and now risen to the post of chef patron. In 2018 Lee is excited to be supplying the hotel’s kitchen with its first batches of asparagus, salad, radishes and raspberries from a new allotment that he has created."
"Tuddenham Mill sits on a tributary of the River Lark. The mill stream that powered this old flour mill until 1954 now forms a pleasant watercourse in front of the hotel and you can see it through glass floor panels passing underneath where the mill wheels once turned. The picturesque mill stream, overhung by long green willows is also home to a number of swans and ducks.
Two miles north of Tuddenham the mill stream joins the Lark River and here walkers can join the Lark Valley Path between Mildenhall and Bury St Edmunds.
There are a number of bedrooms in the old white clapboard mill with two - Mill Room and Mill Room East- that have bathtubs overlooking the stream through picture windows. There is also a modern extension called the Mill Stream block that overlooks the stream. Eating long and eating well is another good reason to visit Tuddenham Mill. Under head chef Lee Bye the Mill is one of only two restaurants in Suffolk with 3 AA rosettes."
"Dogs and cats are very welcome at Tuddenham Mill, the picturesque conversion of an eighteenth century water mill with swans on its mill pond. Animals and their owners are usually assigned the new spacious barn suites which have easy access to the hotel’s own meadow, ideal for morning walks. Dogs are allowed in the bar but not in the lovely half-timbered restaurant upstairs where chef Lee Bye is responsible for some award-winning dishes. Just don’t let your cat out to chase those swans!"
"Watermills became popular for conversion into houses in the early twentieth century because they usually had large rooms and a picturesque stream running nearby. A number of these conversions are now also hotels, most notably Tuddenham Mill, a seventeeth-century water mill on the Suffolk/Cambridge border. With its white clapboard upper storeys, overhanging winch housing and tall brick chimney this looks like a mill that Constable might have painted. Inside, the low wooden beams in the dining room testify to the mill’s authenticity and the original mill wheel, once used for milling flour, is a prominent feature of the bar. The rest of the hotel is modern, carved out of the existing structure to create spacious white rooms with high ceilings. For the full rural effect, book the Mill Room or Mill Room East where the bathtubs have views of the millpond through picture windows."
"Nestled between Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds on the Suffolk border, Tuddenham Mill is a hotel with a difference. Located within a traditional watermill the striking property perfectly marries traditional oak beams with sleek modern interiors. Their spacious rooms feature refreshingly high ceilings, exposed beams and decadently comfortable bedding. There is nothing more relaxing than waking up to the sound of the mill’s trickling water and the local birdlife. Alternatively, those after an adrenaline shot can go quad biking and clay pigeon shooting at the nearby activity park, Wildtracks."
"Tenth wedding anniversary: Tuddenham Mill Hotel in Suffolk is one of those places that ticks all the boxes: great location (in a converted mill next to a pretty stream), gorgeous bedrooms (with original features like exposed beams yet furnished in a contemporary style with standalone tubs) and the sort of food that people travel from miles around to sample (charred mackerel, clams and rock samphire, anyone?). In short, this is the perfect weekend break destination and a suitably special spot for a tenth year knees up."
"Oak exposed beams, sleek glass and a waterwheel Tuddenham Mill is an eclectic mix of rustic chic. This renovated water mill has a wonderfully relaxed environment and a contemporary elegance second to none, perfect for those who are seeking something different. Its function rooms have idyllic private terraces and views over the serene mill pond."
