Elegant retreat

This special place is one to return to, time and again. Exquisitely decorated and furnished to high standards, the owner has worked their magic to give this hotel standard cottage a home-from-home feeling. Subtle hints of the seaside are sprinkled through the cottage in individually picked, calming artworks that adorn the walls. Every room has a gentle atmosphere thanks to the clever use of light and colour. Oak flooring and doors lend a weight of quality to this lovely conversion.

Your kitchen is well equipped to make self-catering a breeze. The space is welcoming, the appliances just perfect. There is plenty of entertainment here, inside and out. You have free access to explore two and a half acres of woodland belonging to the owner. The garden is an enclosed treat, with lawned area and a sundial shaped patio. Just perfect for sitting out on for an al fresco meal. Woven fencing adds to the rustic feel in this countryside retreat.

When the day is done, choose from the collection of films to watch in front of a roaring fire in the gorgeous woodburner. Logs are thoughtfully provided. The charming sitting room is well proportioned and the furnishings just perfectly picked. Feel at ease in luxury here. What could be more appealing than a tranquil holiday in a beautiful mid-Suffolk village? Explore the Suffolk coast, Southwold and Aldeburgh from here. Framlingham’s historic castle is only a seven mile drive away and promises hours of fascination and roaming for all ages. There’s a cinema, shops, pubs and restaurants all close by too.

For larger groups, book two more guest in to adjoining Woodland Lodge.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

You’ll feel the hotel quality with luxury bathrobes and 500 thread count Egyptian cotton linen. Sink into the comfortable beds and sleep soundly. The bathroom is beautifully decorated and equipped with a stunning walk-in double-headed rain shower and sensor mirror.


Really high standard of accommodation in a beautiful area of the country. Lovely to be so rural and peaceful. It was easy to get to lots of places to visit such as beaches, market towns, pretty villages and pubs serving great food. We also had a great day at Alton Water.

Mrs F,

Like a Tardis, and excellently thought through. This lovely remote lodge is more of a home than a lodge. It easily accommodated 4 (um) shall I say, bigger than average adults. Well kitted out with things cleverly in the right place, I felt it has more than a touch of class. A great place if you like walking or if you prefer driving and visiting places, it is central to many popular attractions. Often you have an expectation, before you stay in our this exceeded ours. We would happily stay again. One find we had was Huttons in Earl Soham (posh village). It is a butcher/cafe/cheese counter / mini supermarket. Well worth a visit for a breakfast bap and coffee on a nice day. You will see what I mean.

Mr S,

Exceptionally well-appointed property, helpful owners - the lodge has two separate outside seating areas and a wood at the back for kids to explore in. We had a great time staying here, and would highly recommend it.

Mrs E,

Cottage located in a good position to visit variety of locations. Lovely cottage and lots of thought has gone into the tiny details. Would definitely stay again.
