Self Catering Apartments in the Mill

Located Near Woodbridge, Orford, Aldeburgh and Snape

Straddling the parishes of Butley and Chillesford and overlooking Butley Creek, the four storey building Butley Mills stands on the side of a narrow lane and backs onto the original mill pond. It has been converted into five high standard self catering holiday apartments, each of an individual nature, but all enjoying wide views of the surrounding countryside. There are nine bedrooms in total, providing accommodation for a total of 18 people.

An extensive area of west facing decking, which is linked to a patio with bar-be-que facilities, overlooks the mill pond. The decking is completely fenced with child proof wire netting and is not readily accessed by young children.

Four of the apartments are accessed by a wide central staircase with shallow risers, whilst the fifth enjoys a private external staircase.

Bed linen and towels are provided, but not bedding or linen for cots.

There is usually a member of staff at the mill between 9.00 and 9.30am to offer any help and assistance guests may require.
