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 local weekly market as you discover the historic civil parish for yourself—all courtesy of this week's Escape to the sumptuous Mill Hotel.

Stay
You and your other half will kick off your muddy boots in a lavish refurbished room at the rustic-luxe venue for two nights for £139 (up to a £332.61 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.

Eat
There's no need to source your own local produce when you can get stuck into it at the Riverside Restaurant: a two-course dinner is included on the first night of your stay, as is a full English breakfast each morning and a bottle of wine if you dine at the eatery on the second night.

See
As you wrap up and step out into the invigorating air, you'll appreciate the first-hand views of Gainsborough's pastoral scenes. 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.

Know
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. This Escape is valid for all seven days of the week.

  • "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."
