  • “Wonderful location for relaxing holiday”
    We were the first paying visitors to the Granary Mill unbeknown to us on booking. Wonderful location for a relaxing holiday, barn conversation done to a very high standard all round, loved being able to sit on the balcony and watch the local barn owls - what a treat along with deer in the distance. as well as the daily visits from friendly grey wagtails, swans and of course the owners dogs. Great walks from the door including to pub (s) , we were lucky enough to have nice weather so to come ...

Wonderful location for a relaxing holiday, barn conversation done to a very high standard all round, loved being able to sit on the balcony and watch the local barn owls - what a treat along with deer in the distance. as well as the daily visits from friendly grey wagtails, swans and of course the owners dogs. Great walks from the door including to pub (s) , we were lucky enough to have nice weather so to come back and spend an 1/2 hr in the Jacuzzi in the sun watching for otters was fabulous. Owners extremely helpful and friendly, keen to ensure our visit was going well with recommendations for places to visit and eat out. Would definitely recommend this cottage and would go back if we visit this area again. Went home feeling very chilled and relaxed.

About the location

WORTWELL

Bungay 5.7miles; Harleston 3.4 miles, Framlington Castle 17.5 miles, Southwold 19miles; Aldeburgh 27.7 miles

Wortwell is a picturesque village situated in Norfolk but very close to the Norfolk/Suffolk boundary. It is located on both the River Waveney (which forms the county boundary) and the A143 road, some 13 miles east of Diss and 22 miles west of Lowestoft. The village of Wortwell is one of the few Norfolk villages actually listed in the Domesday Book. Today it is home to an award-winning local pub where you can enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal, and there are plenty of footpaths to wander to soak up the glorious surrounding countryside. The village is situated within easy reach of the Suffolk Heritage Coast and there are endless beautiful towns and villages just a short drive away. Nearby Harleston is a friendly town offering ancient inns, charming individual shops, good restaurants and cafes, an art gallery and local museum, and a weekly market. Bungay is a historic bustling market town where you can enjoy following the local Village Trail or pop into one of the many cafes and shops for a bit of refreshment. Other nearby places include Framlingham Castle, a Norman castle currently looked after by English Heritage and well worth a visit. Wortwell is an ideal location for touring the delights of both Norfolk and Suffolk.
