Harveys Mill
Sleeps 2

Harveys Mill

Harvey's Mill is the roundhouse of a 17th century Suffolk Post Windmill in the little village of Kelsale near the historic market town of Saxmundham. The main space in this rural retreat for couples houses open plan living areas and a large mezzanine bedroom with lovely views across open fields.

The building has been lovingly renovated while retaining many visible original features including the bare brick buttresses that would have supported the original windmill and smock

Included in the price, guests receive a welcome pack including complimentary wine, homemade bread, homemade jam, homemade chocolate biscuit cake, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit, fresh milk, orange juice and real coffee.

This Kelsale holiday cottage is centrally heated and cosy, it is open all year around including Christmas and New Year breaks.

There is a generous entrance hall and large bathroom with free-standing double ended bath.

The Mill has its own enclosed garden suitable for pets and al fresco dining.

Things to do in and around the area are Sutton Hoo Saxon burial grounds, RSPB at Minsmere (as seen on Springwatch 2014-16), Southwold, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Birds of Prey Centre, Suffolk Punch Horses, Framlingham Castle, Orford Ness and Castle, Dunwich Heath, Rendlesham Forest and many coastal towns.

If you'd like other family members or friends to join you, Hillcrest, another cottage in the grounds that sleeps 4-6 can be rented in conjunction with Harveys Mill.

When making a booking or an enquiry, please tell us that you found this Suffolk holiday cottage in Kelsale on the My Favourite Holiday Cottages website. Thank you.
