About this property

With its idyllic location next to a large pond, this five-star accommodation is a memorable spot for a group trip within the pretty Suffolk countryside. It’s located within a gorgeous 1500-acre estate featuring stunning countryside vistas and lush green fields, so you can kick off each day with a peaceful stroll. With space for ten guests over its five bedrooms, this dwelling is perfect for a holiday with extended family or a celebratory trip among good friends.

On arrival, take a moment to admire the pretty pond before stepping into the attractive wood and brick building, whose interior is decorated to an impeccable standard. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and a large island, ideal for communal cooking and sociable dining. You can eat in the exquisite dining area inside or venture out to the wraparound deck for an al fresco experience absorbing the enchanting views. All five bedrooms have plush beds, soft linens and their own en suites. There’s even a dedicated dressing room and treatment room for if you need extra space to get ready. The outside space features an inviting hot tub where you can take a rejuvenating dip at any time of day or night. A sweet breeze house standing in the centre of the lawn is a wonderful spot for guests to enjoy a moment together and soak in the surrounding beauty.

      I would like to commend the quality of the cottage itself. My sister shared many important memories there during her hen do with friends and family. The cottage provided a beautiful and memorable setting for this special occasion, which was greatly appreciated by all attendees.

      Three generations enjoyed an excellent three night break in luxury accommodation to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday. The welcome pack was full of nice treats, and the kitchen was very well equipped for catering for groups. Bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful - the beds were very comfortable and the sheets and towels lovely. In chilly November weather, good use was made of the hot tub and the log burner was much appreciated. We would have loved to stay longer!
