Windmill
Trickers Mill is a 5 storey Grade 2 listed Tower Windmill with its own private courtyard in the heart of Woodbridge close to the Market Square. The ground floor and first floors have been converted to provide fabulous accommodation for two people. From the bedroom there is a staircase and trap door to the upper levels where stunning views over the roof tops of Woodbridge and the River Deben can be enjoyed. This part of the windmill is a step back in time and is as it was 200 years ago. Care needs to be taken as the stairs are steep and some machinery is at head height.

Lovely stay at this historic building.
We had a lovely stay at this historic building. Excellent location and well appointed. It was a privilege to be able to see the remaining mill machinery too.

A Home from Home with Great Character
A very characterful, converted, windmill in a central location to access all of Suffolk. Excellent fittings and furnishings and very well equipped kitchen. Fascinating to see original mill workings on upper floors. Added bonus of garage for a medium sized car. Short flight of stairs to massive bedroom on the first floor. Shops and restaurants just a 5 minute walk away.

Perfect quirky short stay .
My husband booked this for a surprise 50 th getaway , just perfect inside . Sadly we are in middle of snow storm so venturing outside was difficult. Shops and cafe shut due to weather conditions so had to stay and enjoy this perfect rest . Upstairs the views not disappoint but very cold so wrap up warm it is worth it . Due to steps not for faint hearted to get to the top . The marmalade left was amazing and homemade . Can not fault it hope to return in better weather .

Lovely short break
We arrived a bit early, the mill was all but ready for us so we parked in the garage and strolled the short distance to our stay. The windmill has been converted to a very high standard, well thought out, spacious and comfortable, the welcoming flowers and pot of jam was a nice touch. Exploring the upper floors was chilly but very interesting as were the good views across the town. Set in a quiet residential area it was very peaceful, if it was a bit warmer we could have sat in the patio! This is a nice place to stay, we'd love to revisit in future.

Can't wait to go back
The main reason we booked was for the opportunity to spend the night in a converted windmill. We didn't research the area very much, the property itself was our main interest. Before I touch upon the property, I just want to say how marvellous a town Woodbridge is, it's truly a lovely place to stay. The windmill itself was incredible. Refurbished to a very high standard, and decorated very intelligently given the space to work with. Thoroughly homely, my partner and I didn't want to leave and had such a wonderful time staying here. The upper floors of the old windmill were tremendous to explore, stunning views and a truly unique experience (assuming you haven't looked around a 200 year old windmill before). Tessa was a helpful, and gracious host that looked after us very well, whilst giving us absolute space and autonomy of the property so it really felt like a private getaway. We would 100% recommend this property to anyone, and genuinely look forward to staying there once again. Thank you!

Fantastic Experience
The location, interior of the windmill and the lovely welcome pack for breakfast and fresh flowers made the whole experience 5star. It was a great experience living in the windmill and the views and private court yard were superb. We had very decent weather only one day of rain within our 7day stay. We will return, thank you Tessa.

Perfect bijou stay for a beautiful area of Suffolk
We stayed at Trickers Mill in Woodbridge for 2 nights as a base for a wedding we were attending nearby. We wanted to make a weekend of it, and explore the lovely surrounding countryside too. Tessa was very helpful with directions and what to expect on the day of arrival. The mill is situated in Woodbridge, within a small, peaceful retirement residential area. Parking was easy, as it has its own garage. There is also a small pay and display car park a couple of mins away. On entering the mill - WOW. Its fantastic. Very cosy and homely, tastefully decorated and incredibly clean, everything looks fresh and new and all the soft furnishings are high quality. The sofa is incredibly comfortable, as is the huge, sumptious bed! The pictures do not do it justice as its actually more spacious & comfortable than it looks online. The best part was being able to go up high into the top parts of the windmill and look out & take pictures, whilst absorbing some of the history of the mill itself. A lot of the working parts are still in tact as is the last staircase (ladder!) to the top. Not for the faint hearted, and you really do need to be very careful if you go up/down these steps. Fun though! Location - on the first morning I walked into the centre of town and back, which is very pretty, and this took less than 15mins to do, the location is great. You can walk to & along the River Deben too. We noticed some lovely pubs and restaurants and also a cinema in town. We were staying for a wedding at Woodhall Manor (15 mins away by taxi which cost £11) and we also visited the pretty village of Orford (20mins), and the fantastic Snape Maltings (15mins) which is a shopper & foodie paradise! We loved our relaxing stay at Trickers Mill and highly recommend this as a great base for Woodbridge and the surrounding area.

About the neighbourhood
The Mill is just minutes from the Market Square where there are numerous boutique shops, bars, pubs and restaurants. A further stroll down the hill brings you to the bustling Thoroughfare with a further variety of shops, eateries and bars. We love Honey and Harvey for a light lunch and The Table for great evening meals . Walks along the Deben river wall with views of the Tide Mill are also enchanting.
