For a venue with history, take a look at Tuddenham Mill on the Suffolk border. Overlooking an ancient mill pond and surrounded by idyllic countryside, it began life as a water mill around 1,000 years ago. Many of the original features - such as the huge cast-iron water wheel, lit up behind a glass wall - have been incorporated to create a strikingly original boutique hotel. The delicious wedding meals are created from scratch, so it's also a great choice for foodies.
