About the property: Situated in breathtaking countryside (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Coralline is a one-bedroom apartment within Butley Mills. On the first floor, accessed by an internal staircase, this cosy holiday let features an open plan kitchen and living area, with a small dining table. There are lovely Suffolk views of the reed beds and Butley creek to the west, and of the flowing river lined with Willows to the east. All windows are double glazed and sit behind the original iron grilles of the old mill windows.

The neat master bedroom features twin aspect views of Butley River; wake up to the gentle sound of flowing water, before digging your toes into the warm, sheepskin rugs either side of the bed. 

Sleeps: 2 in one double bed.

Parking: There is a dedicated parking area immediately opposite the Mills.

This property is ideal for: Couples keen on walking and bird watching. Coralline is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Lovers of the countryside will adore the magnificent views of reed beds, forest, Butley River and meadows and fields in all directions. Next door is Laurence Edward's studio; you can see one of his bronze sculptures in the reeds opposite the Mills. Rather basic, Coralline makes the perfect base for ramblers and for those keen to explore nearby Orford. 

Music lovers will enjoy Snape Maltings, just a short drive from Butley. With it's impressive concert hall, you will find many concerts and productions taking place here throughout the year. 

Why not get active with the whole family and have a go at mountain biking? There are some great trails around to suit all abilities - hire the high performance Trek Mountain Bikes and get exploring! Qualified guides can be arranged to lead your group, and lunches can be organised too. For information contact the Big House Holidays team on 01394 389188

Eating and drinking out: The closest eatery is The Froize Freehouse at Chillesford - easily within walking distance, taking 15 minutes on foot. Top quality, seasonal fresh food, sourced locally. The restaurant serves both lunch (everyday but Monday) and supper on Thursday - Saturday. 

Pubs in Orford include The Kings Head Inn, serving excellent food and Adnams ale in front of the woodburner, and the equally delightful Jolly Sailor, right near Orford Quay. The Crown and Castle restaurant and bar in Orford has a truly unstressed and relaxing atmosphere, and serves really good, unpretentious food. Journey a little further out and you will find the The Crown Inn and The Golden Keyat Snape, both serving locally brewed Adnams ales.

As well as tea rooms and an array of good shops, Snape Maltings houses The Plough and Sail, a modern restaurant with a delicious menu consisting of local, fresh, seasonal ingredients - perfect before an evening performance at the famous Maltings concert hall!

Venture even further afield to Woodbridge or Aldeburgh and sample some of the top quality fare served in the pubs and restaurants. See Visit Woodbridge and Visit Aldeburgh for ideas.

Self catering eating: In nearby Orford, you will be well supplied with local produce. Fresh fish can be bought at Brinkley's Fish Shed, down by the quay, or from The Butley Orford Oysterage, where you can get oysters grown at Butley Creek, and freshly smoked trout, mackerel, cod roe, wild and farmed salmon, kippers and eel. For shopping, go to Orford General Store, which is just off Market Hill. From Wednesday through to Sunday try the Pump Street Bakery, a continental type patisserie/boulangerie for the crustiest bread and arguably the best doughnuts for miles!

Lovely warm apartment, views superb, well fitted out and plenty of room in the communal areas. We had a lovely ten day break and would go back again and would recommend the apartment to others.Rosemary W, Kent - 28th April 2015
We had a great holiday in Coralline - a very comfortable stay and we would recommend it highly.The Bennetts - 23rd October 2014
We would just like to say that we had a really lovely stay at Coralline, Butley Mills. The apartment was all that we could have wanted and the welcome tea, biscuits and milk was a very nice touch. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Mill as a great base to explore that area. On our last morning, we were able to watch kingfishers and a cattle egret from the window!Mrs D, Lowestoft. - 28th February 2014
