The Cowshed

What was once the former cattle shed for the farm has now been exquisitely renovated to provide a luxurious countryside rural retreat in the heart of Suffolk.

Imagine star gazing from your superking Hypnos cashmere bed, your morning coffee in front of the Esse Bakeheart stove, warm summer evenings on your private veranda in front of the BBQ firepit and unspoilt views across the fields to the village church. A sense of calm and relaxation is immediately felt when you arrive here, and every little detail has been lovingly thought of to ensure you have the most enjoyable stay.

If this wasn’t enough, you have the opportunity to enjoy The Firs spa facilities which include a wood-fired hot tub and a sauna room. Perhaps you would like to enjoy an evening around the firepit BBQ in the comfort of your cottage.
