Country cottages or log cabins set deep in the heart of Suffolk’s beautiful and rural countryside, offer the chance to escape the busy working week and relax properly, knowing that there are no deadlines to meet and no phones to answer or emails to read. In a Suffolk country cottage or log cabin, your time is your own, to do with what you will. There is no set time for breakfast so you can lie in for as long as you wish, there’s no menu for lunch or dinner, so you can choose exactly what you want to eat and when to eat it. Best of all, there’s no itinerary for the day, so you can do as you please and go wherever you want.


You may wish to go for long romantic walks in the Suffolk countryside. You could go early in the morning as the mist and dew are clearing from the heaths and woodlands or during the day as the temperatures rise and the air fills with the sweet scent of flowers and birdsong. There can be nothing nicer or more romantic than meandering along one of the county’s gently winding roads or taking a walk along one of its many bridle paths, enjoying the peace and quiet of some truly idyllic surroundings and all the time knowing, you’ve nothing to rush back for. Before long you’ll find your natural walking pace has slowed to a gentle stroll and you’ll be taking the time to notice even the smallest detail. You’ll wish you had a camera, holidays like these are the reason many people get hooked on photography.

The kids will enjoy their walks in the country too; there is so much for them to see, particularly at this time of year. Spring is sprung and the birds and animals are looking to find mates and build nests together. This is the time when nature is at its busiest so there’s a lot to see, if you know where to look. Challenge them to see how many different types of bird they can spot or take photos of the wild flowers so you can have fun naming them later. Don’t pick them though; many wild flowers are protected under the 1981 Wildlife and Countryside Act so you run the risk of getting in trouble if you do.

Whilst out on your travels you may happen upon one of Suffolk’s old country inns. You’ll find them dotted all over the place, serving a fine selection of bitters and real ales, many of which will be locally produced. The Adnams Brewery Company supplies many a Suffolk tavern as does Greene King but there are many other, much smaller local brewers besides, each producing their own peculiar tastes. The quality of the food on offer at many of these establishments is very good and the menus are often filled with local organic produce, why not stop for a while for a bite to eat and quench your thirst.

If you prefer to cook for yourselves, you can always pick the ingredients up en-route and take them back to your holiday cottage for a barbecue. Once back at your log cabin, you can fire up the barbecue and set the table for an al-fresco meal while the kids go for a swim or play around by the lake. They may even want to jump straight in to the hot tub before dinner. Each of our 7 log cabin lodges comes complete, with its own private high spec hot tub. These are great fun for the kids to splash around in and after the kids have gone to bed, they’re great fun for the adults too. Is there anything more romantic than relaxing alone together in your own, private hot tub whilst sipping on a glass of sparkles? If you left it till a bit later, perhaps until nightfall after the kids have gone to bed, you could enjoy the hot tub and wine experience while looking out for constellations in the night’s sky. Now that’s romantic!

Our log cabins are as well equipped, warm and luxurious as some of the best country cottage accommodation. While staying at Windmill Lodges, you also get the benefit of your own private hot tub, our indoor heated swimming pool (Easter – October only) and a private catch and release fishing lake on site.
