An amazing and unforgettable stay
We’ve been lucky enough to stay twice at this beautiful modern take on a unique windmill stay experience and have loved every minute of it. First impressions of the windmill as you approach from the adjacent road really has the “wow factor” and never cease to impress. Then things just get better and better as you venture inside. I love how the circular stairs wind their way up to two fabulously appointed bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom, with a huge freestanding bath and walk in shower. Everything is finished to an exceptionally high standard with real attention to detail and bespoke items to fit the conical nature of the windmill. Then you continue the journey further up to what has to be the icing on the cake - the “pod” at the very top. With a comfy sofa, drinks fridge, tv and balcony providing glorious views over rolling fields in all directions it’s truly an oasis in which to relax.
What a Wonderful Place
Wow. Simply wow. I had the absolute joy of staying at The Windmill Suffolk to celebrate my own and my Dad's birthday. The care and attention that has gone into every aspect of the venue, as well as the stay and hosting was beyond compare. Natalie and Steve have crafted the Windmill into a venue and stay that is stunning, the views from the balcony were lovely and it is a birthday ill never forget. Nothing was amiss, everything was provided and the stay was warm, genuine and memorable. I've not stopped recommending this beautiful and cool place to every person I've met. Natalie was so kind and enthusiastic and went the extra mile to make a 40th and 65th birthday one we will always remember.
An inspirational destination!
We have just returned from a wonderful few days spent at The Windmill Suffolk to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. It was quiet and peaceful with huge views across open countryside from the unique pod on the top floor. We were blown away by its inspirational design and Natalie and Steve’s attention to detail, we wanted for nothing. It was a truly memorable and luxurious stay in this beautiful part of England and we would thoroughly recommend it.
Such a beautiful and unique place to stay in Suffolk
Such a beautiful place to stay. The Windmill is such a unique building and incredibly luxurious. All the details really make the stay extra special. Natalie and Steve are wonderful hosts.
The most unique stay in the UK! Spectacular!
I booked a stay at the Windmill Suffolk last month for my proposal and I have to say that my stay at the Windmill was true luxury, from the unique architecture to the real warmth and true genuine nature of the hosts, Natalie and Steve!
Before my stay, the hosts communicated with enthusiasm and great passion in arranging my special visit. They even offered a unique experience by creating a custom made package to ensure my thorough proposal vision was met, from selecting the perfect colours of the flowers and balloons to the precise timing and arrangement of the proposal itself, where Natalie had arranged blooming roses and candles leading up to the lavish balcony, outlooking the countryside.
During our stay, Natalie and Steve were committed to ensuring that me and my partner had the best possible stay by being available at the drop of a hat, yet offering us a private, intimate experience, away from the world.
Everytime we entered the Windmill, we were mesmerised with a new luxury experience as though going through a new line of a symphony, from a bespoke afternoon tea and room of balloons to a personalised engagement card and a surprise bottle of bubbly to mark the occasion! The whole spectacle was so seemless and well done that it was as if faries had decorated the accommodation!
Natalie and Steve went beyond expectations by even giving us their time in going through a photoshoot with us to make sure our stay was that much more memorable and special, and communicating after our stay to ensure we had the perfect photos for our album for years to come.
I have to say that Natalie and Steve are a delight and I thank them for their genuine enthusiasm, perfection in their commutation and the way in which they welcomed us into their accommodation, which felt as though we were old friends! I cannot wait until I see them again soon.
We’ve visited twice now and absolutely love it. The whole place is lovely and inviting. Hosts can’t do enough for you before you arrive then leave you in private for your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and a pleasure the spend time in, the garden is private and so pretty. Absolutely huge bath, bedrooms are lovely and the pod at the top is a lovely space to relax and enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the evening.
Such a special place
If you looking for some where which is unique, luxurious and tranquil look no further then The Windmill Suffolk.
Our stay there was truly special and we can’t wait to return, it was perfect place to celebrate our anniversary with a glass of fizz on the balcony while admiring the views.
It’s also really close to Lavenham and Bury St Edmunds where we were spoilt for choice with places to eat.
Magical place to visit
Can honestly say, this is one of the most magical places I have stayed. Beautiful countryside views, stunning building with everything thing you could possibly need, comfy, luxury accommodation and outstanding hosts.
My only regret is that I haven’t been back, but hope to again soon.
Don’t miss the opportunity to book and stay at The Windmill - it’s simply wonderful!
Pre Christmas break with the family
This place is a must! Bucket list destination 🤩
Our family of four had the pleasure of staying at the windmill - with our adult children 💙💕
High end appliances in the kitchen
Gorgeous bath 🛀
The owners were so lovely 🥰 and arranged everything for us prior to our arrival and couldn’t do enough 🤩
A great place to unwind and celebrate any occasion
Pure luxurious stay
The coolest place to stay ever, incredible !!!
We stayed here for our first anniversary & from the moment we arrived it was wow !! Cosy interior, friendly & welcoming owners, & the best Bath EVER !!! Incredible views, we would highly recommend. A bucket list venue and once in a lifetime memories to be made.
What a stay!
We have been fortunate enough to have visited The Windmill twice. Both times for our 30th birthdays, so this place holds a special place in our hearts. Natalie is the most incredible host! She simply cannot do enough for you as her guest(s) and ensures you feel incredibly special & appreciated (whatever the occasion)
The windmill itself is breathtaking! Simply beautiful. Cannot fault the place! Spotlessly clean. Incredible views. Quiet & peaceful location.
My partner has since gone through 2 of The Windmill's personalised dressing gowns, something he describes as wearing a cloud. They are super soft!! Highly recommend. He lives in his, hence why he's had 2 of them!
The bathroom and bathtub is out of this world! (My personal favourite!)
Not too far away from Bury St Edmunds either. Some lovely restaurants & shops to be explored should you wish to venture out.
A unique place to stay and certainly a place I haven't stopped banging on about since visiting for the first time 5 years ago!
A truly unique place to stay! Highly recommend!
If I was to sum up my stay in one word I would say wow. What an amazing, stunning, superb, unique place to stay. Words cannot describe how nice it is. I booked it as part of my other halfs 40th birthday celebrations and im so glad i did. Natalie the owner was excellent. When we arrived she greeted us and then didn’t come inside so we knew no one had been in there since it had been thoroughly cleaned. She stayed outside and gave us a guided tour over the phone. The extra touches she had done were so nice like the birthday banners and the lemon drizzle cake. We knew she was at the end of the phone if we needed her. We had been to Lavenham before and fell in love with the area so when I stumbled across the Windmill I couldn’t wait to book it. The inside is decorated to a high spec and i love what they have done with the space. The top living room area was probably my favourite due to the great views across the countryside, the comfy sofas, the large TV and the surround sound. It was the perfect chill out room with the added bonus of a balcony. You can either take food with you to enjoy or if you are like us you can venture out to one of the many local places serving great food (the Windmill is in a great location). If you ever get the chance to book here I would highly recommend it as there is literally nothing you can fault.
Our happy place
We have stayed at the Windmill three times now, we call it our #happyplace.
Whether it be a celebration like our 50th or just a cosy get away it's perfect!
Natalie goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect and it always is!
It's quiet but close enough to places like Lavenham if you want to explore and the local pub is really good too.
Mostly we like to get away from it all and sit up on the top floor with a glass of wine and watch the world go by.
The reason we come back again and again is its just so perfect!
Stunning - nothing left to chance
A stay at the Windmill is a wonderful experience. The property has been brilliantly adapted and has a lovely kitchen / dining space on the ground floor, a great lounge area with lovely views at the top of the windmill and superbly equipped bathroom and bedrooms in between. Hosts Natalie and Steve couldn’t be more helpful and accommodating. A special venue for a special occasion.
A truly beautiful and relaxing place
We are fortunate enough to have stayed here a few times before, it has become our go to special occasion venue each of which have been made even more special by the lovely touches added by Natalie & Steve. As soon as you walk in you know you are somewhere very special. Surrounded by comfort and luxury, there is nothing that you could want that has not already been thought of. Sitting out on the pod balcony is breathtaking and the comfort inside is stunning. With two other outside seating areas you are spoilt for choice of where to relax! The kitchen is beautifully fitted out and very well equipped and the bedroom is wonderfully decorated and luxurious. I think the bath deserves a special mention…make sure you take time out from all the other relaxing for a long soak! Thank you Natalie & Steve…until next time ☺️
This was out 2nd visit to The Windmill and we had another wonderful time! Beautiful building with truely stunning views from the pod at the top. Comfortable and modern interior, clean and homely with good self catering facilities. Natalie was warm and welcoming, and was very knowledgeable about the area and places to visit. Peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of London, we were able to really relax.
Highly recommend The Windmill, we will certainly be back!
One of a kind
Myself and a friend stay for a few days. The Windmill is simple one of a kind. Its beautiful inside and out! Natalie and Steve are amazing people and they have done an outstanding job with this place. I highly recommend you staying here.
The windmill is a unique and amazing place to stay and truly luxurious.
Natalie made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. We loved all the little extra touches and the various treats that were dotted around. With beautiful countryside views from the top floor ‘pod’ balcony it’s a perfect place to relax and escape for a few days. We will definitely return!
Stunning luxury accommodation that exceeded my very high expectations!
Goodness me where to start. Every single thing about our stay was fantastic. From the initial enquiry, to confirming details, asking lots of questions (sorry Natalie 😉), to arriving and experiencing the wow factor, everything has been super impressive and we are definitely coming back.
The quality of the building inside and out, the private parking, the furnishings, appliances, interior design, everything exudes class and it’s all just so, so lovely. It’s fair to say Natalie and Steve have thought of everything….and then added a little bit of magic as there’s a feeling, a vibe, something very cool and very special about The Windmill.
It’s a truly unique place and we loved it.

The Perfect Getaway
The Windmill is oustanding! We spent a much needed break here and had a wonderful time. From the moment we arrived, with a warm welcome from our lovely host, to the end of our stay we were not disappointed! The attention to detail is unbelievable. If you want to stay in something different from the norm, this is it. It’s both fun and luxurious and very conveniently situated for exploring beautiful Suffolk, or staying in to enjoy the wonderful facilities and views. We highly recommend this fabulous Windmill.
Luxurious and relaxing
We had a couple of relaxing days in the Windmill. Natalie and Steve were wonderful hosts. Everything was so luxurious and we felt very relaxed. We enjoyed the walks in the local area and had a little trip into Lavenham where we found the quaint Tatums tea rooms.
An absolutely must visit! Incredible, luxurious getaway!
Home from the most incredible couple of days away at The Windmill Suffolk
To say that this place is incredible, is an understatement! Natalie and Steve, you have created the most amazing, luxurious getaway that I have ever been to!!!
From the stunning views, the incredible design work, the most amazing interior designing that I have ever seen, to all the little added extras - wine and cake on arrival, dressing gowns and slippers to wear, gorgeous little goodies dotted throughout the windmill…. we honestly have had the best time so thank you for having us!!
The whole place was immaculately clean and Natalie recommended some fab places to visit whilst we were staying!
We can’t wait to come back again!! x
Such a great getaway
Stay here for a few nights in October. There was 3 of us and plenty of space. The windmill itself is done to such a great standard. We felt very well looked after and taken care of. The location was amazing about 5-10min drive to amazing sights and restaurants and pub. Will be going back again for sure.
If you are looking to escape from it all and stay somewhere truly special and unique, I would highly recommend this gem of a place.
What a place! I couldn’t recommend enough.
With two young children, we were looking to escape for a few days for some much needed Mummy and Daddy chill time. The Windmill was the perfect destination.
I agree with all that has been said by other guests, but for me personally the room at the top was just heaven. I could have sat there for days, breathing in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, and just doing not very much at all.
The Windmill is beautifully designed, modern and oozes elegance in every way. We didn’t want to leave.
Thank you Natalie and Steve for being the perfect hosts. You’ve created something truly wonderful and unique and we hope to stay again soon.
Wow wow wow!!
The Windmill exceeds even the highest of expectations when it comes to a unique and special stay! I can’t recommend this place high enough. From the attention to detail and pure luxury of the Windmill itself, to the stunning countryside and peaceful surroundings which you can take in and enjoy from the balcony or viewing window. We were just blown away by the whole stay. Natalie and Steve are the perfect hosts and made us feel so welcome. We have stayed at there twice now and I can’t wait to go again. Oh and the bath tub! What a bath tub!!!
Relaxation in the beautiful Suffolk countryside.
My husband and I loved our break in the quirky and luxurious windmill. Inside it had everything we could have possibly wanted. My husband enjoyed the selection of coffees and I enjoyed the biggest bubble bath I’ve ever had! During the days we explored the Tudor town of Lavenham and at night enjoyed the 360 degree view of the beautiful countryside. Natalie and Steve - we loved the extra special touches that you left for us and we cannot wait to return.
Amazing place and the best views ever. The bed is the most incredible bed ever.
The whole place was spotless and the comfort was amazing. The bathroom was so beautiful and spacious. The living room was stunning with the views and everything is luxury. Will be going again.
Wonderful stay at the windmill
Me and my husband had the most wonderful stay at the Windmill we chose to stay there for our wedding night and added a couple of extra nights for good measure.
We chose this particular location because it’s very unique and different. And it didn’t disappoint it was more than we could have expected , Natalie the host was very attentive and couldn’t have done more for us.
From the decorations in our room, to the cake and food platter left for us to enjoy these little touches were very special and such kind gesture from Natalie.
We spent three nights at the Windmill enjoying the incredible view from the top floor and balcony and had the most beautiful wedding pictures taken there too when I was getting ready.
Natalie has thought of everything a guest might need during their stay, from the coffee machine, to the dishwasher to save you washing up ! and all the crockery needed if you decide to eat there.
The bed was so comfortable and felt very luxurious as well as the very large bath which was a wonderful bathing experience.
I couldn’t recommend the Windmill enough if you’re wanting to stay somewhere unique and peaceful with the most beautiful views combined with some luxury and if you’re wanting to explore there are wonderful country walks all around along a beautiful well kept garden where you can sit and relax.
Sabrina and Paul
Amazing welcome,fantastic accomodation. Terrific views
What a wonderful experience this was...from start to finish!
The owner, Natalie, greeted us on arrival and was so informative about the property and it's surroundings. She had thought of everything, all the little extras one likes but doesnt usually get!
Everything was luxurious and spotlessly clean. It was so peaceful and the beds were comfy too. We had fun exploring the massive bath.....
This was our maiden visit but I can assure you it will be the first of many. Can't wait until my next Birthday. Thank you Natalie for such a tremendous weekend.
Absolutely perfect stay
We absolutely loved our stay at the windmill. It's absolutely beautiful and so quirky! Natalie was incredible throughout our stay and there were so many nice thoughtful touches as we just got engaged. We are going to stay here again for our mini moon and I can't wait; it really is such a special place! Xx
