Letheringham Water Mill in Rural Suffolk - By Grace White

 

4 years ago, when Jacqui and Richard invested in some wrecked and ruined buildings they had no idea what they had let themselves in for…

Fast forward 4 years and they are now the proud winners of the Visit England – Dog Friendly Business of The Year Award!

Letheringham Water Mill situated in Rural Suffolk offers 5 * Gold Rated accommodation that would make any stay a special one.

It’s uniqueness and classic English setting is not only perfect for humans but a great escape for your canine companions and there’s no restriction on how many you can bring too!!

Dogs won’t need to bring their suitcase with them as on arrival they’ll be presented with their very own, personal crate providing all the essentials they could wish. These include – a towel, blanket, bowl and more.

But just because your four-legged friend is getting spoilt, doesn’t mean you won’t be too!

 

WE WON !!

VisitEngland Chief Executive Sally Balcombe: 

“This year’s awards were fiercely contested and we had some terrific applications, showcasing not only the excellence on offer within English tourism but also the outstanding innovation and the sheer diversity of experiences throughout the country.

“From afternoon tea in a railway carriage to ‘Alice in Wonderland’ boutique hotel rooms, from great family friendly animal attractions to cottages for one, all well deserved the recognition of their quality and service.”
