Our 'Jewel In the Crown' within the historic Letheringham Water Mill 

We took the best of our creativity to produce this newest addition to our cottage portfolio - the Riverside is snuggly nestled within the historic Letheringham Water Mill to produce this amazing space to relax, enjoy the atmosphere within this amazing building

See the water wheel illuminated with viewing galleries within the snug passageway complete with sofa and upstairs in the master bedroom this will leave you amazed at the warm, cosy feeling when no doubt you'll be left open-mouthed when you step into this former tearoom and parts of the mill building. Meticulous care has been taken to restore this truly beautiful property.

The light, views within these surroundings are made by the ebb and flow of the adjoining river.  With lush gardens and rolling farmland beyond, it's a perfect rural idyll less than 20 minutes' drive from the sea.

This cottage is ideal for a romantic break for a couple with possibly a child or an overnighting visitor or possibly their pet child !


The ground floor living room is extremely spacious. Fully wood clad walls are painted in tasteful neutral colours

The expansive red leather sofa & the ceramic wood effect tiled floors in dove grey make it ideal for dogs and country living.

Huge french patio windows & shuttered windows make it perfect for viewing the stunning Suffolk sunsets.


The kitchen has fully fitted bespoke units with limestone worktop with an amazing reflective white glass splashback. 

Amongst many of the design elements to be found here you'll most enjoy our amazing Boiling Hot Water Tap - no need for a kettle ever!  The American fridge freezer has built-in ice maker and cold filtered water.


There is one master bedroom with amazing  Superking with a Relyon memory foam mattress.  Warm rugs, soft throws and lovely lighting give this room a gorgeous feel. 


The attention to detail is fantastic, with Porcelanosa ceramic tiling, you'll marvel at the floor-over-ceiling mosaic designer tiles and the effect it gives this chic wet room. 


Enjoying both meadow and riverside patios, it is a beautiful space complete with plenty of seating. As the sun sets over your very own dream day, the awe-inspiring landscape provides the backdrop for the stars. Sit snuggled outside with a warming drink as wave after wave of stars illuminate the deep velvet sky. A perfect way to enjoy your luxury romantic holiday in Suffolk

Dog friendly

The Riverside is in the perfect area for walks with your dogs in our gardens and surrounding fields. 7 acres for doggy frolics and fun; no worries about running away or getting lost as our grounds are completely surrounded by water which acts as a great boundary (unless your dogs are huge swimmers).  We have a dedicated dog crate with a dog bowls, towel and blanket with a treat left for out furry friends to enjoy.

All dogs are welcome.

Nestled in the heart of the Suffolk coastal area of outstanding natural beauty, this luxury accommodation is ideally placed for accessing the heritage coastline, it's beaches and wealth of natural beauty. Lowestoft, Aldeburgh, Southwold, Walberswick, and Orford are all within 20-30 minute drives, you are spoilt for choice.

To stock up on provisions whilst you are here, take a short drive into the nearby market towns of Framlingham or Wickham Market. Enjoy browsing the array of local food shops, sourcing fresh and local produce. There is also a Waitrose in Saxmundham. In Aldeburgh, fresh fish are caught daily straight into the beach & sold at the fisherman huts.

Walk or drive to 2 great local pubs - closest White Horse at Easton is a 15 minute stroll while The Greyhound at Pettistree is 2.5 miles away. Both offer a warm welcome with super gastro style menus. Enjoy something more sophisticated, in nearby Aldeburgh, or Woodbridge which offer a wide range of high quality restaurants and bars. Do make sure you don’t miss out on fish and chips in the nearby village of Wickham Market. Aldeburgh is also famous for its two family-run fish and chip shops which are cited as the best in the UK. Do visit the Cragg Sisters tea room for that cream tea; fabulous at any time of the year.
