A hotel in west Suffolk has been named as one of the best UK getaways for spring. 

The Telegraph shared a list of the top 30 spots in the country based on how they encapsulate the season. 

The hotels were chosen for freshness, prettiness, a lightness of touch and a sense of happiness at this time of hear. 

Tuddenham Mill, near Mildenhall, made it into the top 10 and ranked ninth overall.

It is the second Telegraph list the business has featured in this year – in January it was named among the best family hotels.

Speaking about Tuddenham Mill, the Telegraph's hotel expert Fiona Duncan said: "Swans drift past the weeping willows and reedbeds that edge the stream and peaceful water meadows of this mill house, with its 18th-century whitewashed clapboard façade. 

"On warmer spring days, the Tipi on the Stream is a stylish al fresco alternative to the cosier upstairs restaurant.

"Take a springtime stroll along the ancient Icknield Way Path that winds through the village or in Thetford Forest nearby."
