Set within rural surroundings, this stylishly quirky ground-floor accommodation has all the elements for a perfect family holiday.
The Gardener’s Cottage, in its stunning rural estate setting, is the perfect holiday accommodation for those looking for a cosy country retreat, just a short drive from Suffolk’s celebrated heritage coast. This uniquely styled four-bedroom cottage can sleep up to 12 guests, with a maximum of six adults across three double bedrooms, and a bunk room that can comfortably sleep up to six children. This former gardener’s cottage, built into the wall that surrounds the estate’s original flower and vegetable garden, retains original architectural design features, such as gothic round-headed ogee mouldings and round-headed windows, while its elevated overlooks woodland and hedgerows.
The Gardener’s Cottage is just as picturesque inside as it is out, with a cosy, homely feel. Entering into the large family kitchen, which is decorated in natural tones of stone and light clay, you’ll notice the vast skylight that floods the room with light, while the bespoke cabinets and zinc-covered dining table add a unique style to the whole room. The kitchen features a large professional range cooker, butler sink and dishwasher, as well as a Nespresso coffee machine for that much-lauded morning cup of coffee.
Through to the living room, the first thing you’ll notice is its quirky design and plush cosy interior. This room features an unusual carved open fireplace, inspired by the ‘Green Man’ from Suffolk mythology. Driftwood tables and natural stone flooring are offset beautifully by chunky dusky pink sofas and brightly patterned soft furnishings in a variety of luxurious shades and textures. This living area features a hidden flatscreen HD LED TV, and a selection of board games for your entertainment, as well as dimmer lighting and underfloor heating for extra ambience.
The Gardener’s Cottage is a ground floor property, ideal for those with children or mobility issues. There are three double bedrooms, two featuring an in-room, freestanding rolltop bath, and the third an en-suite shower room. All the rooms have king-size Hypnos beds and offer incredible woodland views. The spacious bunk room with en-suite offers a unique space for children or young adults to stay. Light and airy, this room makes the most of the space with sturdy wooden bunks dressed in crisp white linen and plump cushions.
Outside, guests can enjoy stunning views and plenty of fresh air. Just a short drive from all of the wonderful offerings of Suffolk and its heritage coast, The Gardener’s Cottage is surrounded by acres of beautiful grounds, including lakes and woodland. All guests staying at properties on the estate have the opportunity to hire bicycles if they don’t wish to explore by foot, or rowing boats and paddleboards to take out on the serpentine lake. There is a shared tennis court and outdoor pool for you to enjoy before heading back to the private terrace for a barbecue and relaxing sundowner with family and friends.
