Located on the private grounds surrounded by beautiful countryside and farmland you really will feel relaxed and at one with nature during your stay at this property.

Hadleigh, one of the old wool towns, has a choice of pubs, shops and coffee shops and is just 3.7 miles away. The popular medieval village of Kersey (5.1 miles) and Lavenham (12 miles) are both well worth a visit and both have a choice of places to shop, eat and drink and keen golfers will enjoy a visit to Hintlesham Hall just 4.6 miles away. There is an abundance of cycle routes close by, enjoy the meandering country roads and the picturesque villages. Upon entering you instantly notice the care and attention the owners have put into this renovation to make your stay feel as comfortable as possible and have even raised the roof to give a superb sense of space. The open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area is the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a busy day out exploring so why not fire up the wood burner and read a book, or even catch up on your favourite show on the Smart TV.
