The top 10 listing identifies small hotels where accommodation and good food go hand-in-hand, with Tuddenham Mill being described as “a graceful spot” which “surprises with its boutiquey bedrooms and ambitious dinners”.

Judges were impressed by “stylish, well-thought-out bedrooms, countryside portions and inspiring food combinations” and by the “generosity and graciousness of the Mill’s customer service”.

Lee Bye, chef patron at Tuddenham Mill, which has three AA rosettes, said: “It is terrific news for the hotel. The team and I are so pleased to be recognised as an Editor’s Choice.

“The housekeepers, front of house, porters and chefs, are all key to ensuring our guests’ experience of the Mill is a truly special one.”
