Assington Mill - Mill Cottage
We have a beautiful cottage in the farmyard complex, which overlooks the half-acre mill pond and its garden leads down to the water. It has a double bedroom and sitting room upstairs, and a kitchen/hall and wetroom downstairs. The boiler room can also be used as a drying room. The building used to be part of the mill, maybe the office, and was converted in 2008. It is heated by a ground source heat pump, which takes heat from the earth, and has a woodburning stove for extra cosiness.
There are fabulous views from the sitting over the millpond, and its wildlife. There is a private garden between the cottage and the millpond, surrounded on the other two sides by a shrub-rose bed on one side and a willow bank on the other, with the grass in between running down to the water. Guests can make full use of our 70-acre private nature reserve, plus the two Suffolk Wildlife Trust nature reserves to the south. There are also bicycles and a boat.
