Woodbridge at Butley Mill - for historic building enthusiasts, dog walkers and art lovers
This reformed watermill nestled by the riverside in the quiet village of Butley is perfect for pet owners who want to take a step out of the fast lane for a while. With its collection of antique French-style furniture and traditional cottage architecture, Butley Mill is a fusion of authentic old fashioned taste where residents can enjoy the pleasure of waking up to the sound of the river. With an artist's sanctuary based at Butley Mills Studios just down the road, where open weekends welcome members of the public for viewings, this is a spot for the artistic, the walkers and the country retreaters.
Rates: £134 per night or £935 per week
6 Coastguard Cottages, Shingle Street - for solitary sea lovers, star gazers and tennis players
With a Napoleonic Martello tower and a coastguard station, Shingle Street feels like it has frozen in time with not even a road or street to its name. However, it embodies what most of us treasure - peace, tranquillity and stunning coastal scenery. Evacuated in 1940 which resulted in an abundance of birds and wildlife, including seals basking in the estuary, Coastguard Cottages offers a beach life steeped in World War 2 history and stories. Pets are allowed at this ocean haven, which sleeps up to four people, with marshland surrounding the area behind. With lagoon-style water inlets where you can take a sheltered swim whilst enjoying crystal clear night skies and unforgettable sunrises, a tennis court is also available on site.
Rates: £76 per night or £530 per week.
