Set within beautiful rural Suffolk, this countryside retreat has been wonderfully renovated to provide a romantic getaway for two. 

The stunning interior oozes luxury and caters for your every need. Open plan living is at the heart of this home. From your luxury Hypnos cashmere bed you can gaze through the window above and watch for shooting stars or sit in front of the Esse stove with a cup of coffee in the mornings. This humble abode is designed to escape everyday life, switch off and recharge those batteries. 

Every effort has been made to ensure you have the most relaxing and restful stay. With private access to spa facilities, a wood fired hot tub, relax by the pond and a sauna room or perhaps you would like to enjoy an evening around the firepit BBQ in the comfort of your cottage. Take a stroll through the 4 acres of gardens and woodland or stop by at the courtyard to cook and create homemade pizzas using the outdoor oven. Whatever you choose to do here, you will have a fabulous stay.
