If you are looking for accomodation for additional guests then why not consider booking The Stables with neighbouring properties The Cowshed or The Butterchurn. A fantastic option for bringing family or friends together for a memorable stay!

A perfectly converted former stable has been beautifully renovated to provide a gorgeous countryside retreat, overlooking the old apple orchard and woodland.

Every detail within this luxurious property has been carefully thought of to enhance your stay. You will love the rustic feel with exposed wooden beams and high vaulted ceilings but with a stunning modern twist! Chic vibrant fabrics and Moroccan style tiles offer a wonderful pop of colour to the property. Large welcoming Hypnos cashmere beds await, with a perfect star gazing window above you. There is also a fabulous fully fitted kitchen and a large open plan living-diner area with french doors out to your terrace.

If this wasn’t enough, you can book a day at The Firs Suffolk Spa facilities* (see below for details and prices) which include an outdoor wood fired hot tub, sauna room, indoor and outdoor shower, changing facilities and a plunge bucket. 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, picnic in the woods or stop by at the courtyard to cook and create homemade pizzas using the outdoor oven and seasonal ingredients from the kitchen garden. Whatever you choose to do here, you will have a fabulous stay.

Fantastic short break, spa was amazing.

Mr W,

This is a truly beautifully designed and thoughtfully curated setting. It was both tranquil and luxurious; the wood fired hot tub and fire bowls really added something special. The hosts could not have been friendlier or more welcoming they even messaged us about the potential to witness shooting stars in the Suffolk sky one evening, which we were indeed lucky enough to experience. Highly recommended.

Ms L,
