In the 18th century, the success of landscape and portrait artist Thomas Gainsborough immortalised Sudbury—a hitherto unassuming Suffolk market town on the banks of the River Stour. Tug on your wellingtons, embrace the winter chill with a blustery stomp in the fresh country air, and stop by a traditional Christmas craft market as you discover the historic civil parish for yourself—all courtesy of this week's Escape to the sumptuous Mill Hotel.

You and your other half will kick off your muddy boots in a lavish superior room at the rustic-luxe venue for two nights for £119 (up to a £348.78 value). You'll warm up after your country walk with a hot soak in the bath, before sinking into your double bed and relaxing in front of your large flat-screen television, or planning tomorrow's itinerary with the help of the complimentary Wi-Fi.

There's no need to source your own local produce when you can get stuck into it at the Riverside Restaurant: a traditional afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, scones with preserves and cream, and homemade cakes is included on the first day of your stay, as is a full English breakfast each morning and a bottle of wine if you dine at the eatery on either night.

As you wrap up and step out into the invigorating air, you'll appreciate not only the first-hand views of Gainsborough's pastoral scenes, but the skills of other locals at the reams of festive craft fairs and workshops across the county throughout November and December. Alternatively, wade further back into the history of the area with a visit to the National Trust's 17th-century Sudbury Hall and Museum of Childhood—simultaneously a decadent ancient manor and an enchanting woodland playground. The hotel's close proximity to Colchester and Bury St Edmunds also affords additional opportunities for local exploration.

This Escape is for two people. The hotel is a short walk to Sudbury Train Station and approximately a 30-mile drive to Stansted Airport.

  • "Located in the centre of the Stour Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Sudbury is an ancient market town dating back to Saxon times."
