Overview

Strikingly refurbished school house offering the perfect country retreat for two. Set in rolling Suffolk landscape, this stylish holiday home has panoramic views. Ideal for relaxing or walking the land together with your dog.

Countryside and those vast skies stretch as far as your eyes can see. Perfect for contemplation à deux while you’re lounging on your patio, snuggled up on your plush sofa or soaking long in your roll-top bath.

Scenic Suffolk

Its profile gives a hint of its previous life, but everything else at the Old School House is about the perfect retreat for two. Take the setting for a start – placed deep in the Suffolk countryside at the heart of miles (and miles) of rolling fields. This rural getaway couldn’t be quieter and more at home with nature.

The position makes the most of the views that stretch gloriously ahead in shades of green and yellow, and upwards across those vast skies famous for their light. You’ll be contemplating the vistas from every angle too. All windows in your holiday haven offer stunning views, ever-changing as the light shifts along the day.

Enjoy them from your outside patio where two armchairs wait side by side for you to sit back and relax. Gaze out from the wonderfully plush settee placed perfectly to get the best views and make the most of the warmth from the woodstove. Nod off and wake up to them from your king-size bed, also placed to benefit fully from the views. And the delight of delights, gaze again at the views as you soak luxuriously in the roll-top bath with a little something in hand and contemplate the dusk and first of the stars.

The two of you have more than enough space in the open-plan interior where high ceilings and masses of natural light make the loveliest of spaces. The rustic kitchen comes fully equipped and even the washing-up stops being a chore because the Belfast sink looks out onto, yes, those views.

Should you manage to leave, great walking lies on your doorstep as you explore the views on foot. Perfect for your furry friend; this unique holiday cottage is pet-friendly too. And then at the end of the day, it’s back to your views.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The Old School House has one bedroom with a king-size bed and roll-top bath. Panoramic views through the picture windows are heavenly. There’s also a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Reviews

When we saw The Old School House on the website we instantly knew we wanted to take our short break there, we could tell from the photo's that it would suit our needs perfectly and we weren't disappointed at all. The house, the setting and the total peace and quiet was all we could ask for. We fully intend to go back. Bury St Edmunds is a short distance away by car. We took part in the Green King Brewery tour which was fascinating. There are lots of nice places to eat in Bury too. We read in the information pack at the house about the walk to a local pub which was tempting but we opted to just stay in and enjoy the endless view. Mrs Lisa Lingwood - 11th May 2019
We stay in lots of self catering cottages, this is one or the best great renovation stunning views and close to big towns. We loved it. - 2nd May 2019
