About the neighbourhood
Whether you are looking for a romantic hideaway, or for fun filled time off with friends there really is no place like The Windmill Suffolk. With plenty of country walks and local attractions, including a variety of National Trust properties within a 10 minute drive you have your pick of things to do during your stay with us. Nestled in Suffolk’s beautiful countryside, The Windmill Suffolk,, is located just 2 miles from Historic Tudor Lavenham. We are less than 10 minutes drive from gorgeous Georgian Bury St Edmunds and its famous Abbey and gardens. Newmarket races are 20 minutes away and Cambridge for obligatory punting on the river Cam and visiting the plethora of universities is 45 minutes drive away.
