This stunning ground-floor accommodation wraps around a pretty courtyard garden, where you can gather with family and friends, and dine al fresco while the sun goes down.
The Stables, situated in beautiful rural Suffolk, is a handsome Grade ll-listed Georgian building, formerly a coach house, that dates back to 1827. This eclectic yet modern four-bedroom country cottage accommodates up to eight guests, all at ground-floor level, in a beautiful open-plan living space, ideal for families with young children. The property wraps around a stunning central south-facing gated courtyard which features outdoor seating and ornamental flower beds.
Upon entering the property through the entrance hall guests will first notice the generously sized kitchen and dining area. This large beautiful space is decorated in subtle shades of cream and flooded with plenty of light thanks to the large double doors that open out onto the private courtyard. In addition to the dining area within the kitchen space, there is also a separate dining hall, which also seats eight in a slightly more formal setting – ideal for a special meal or celebration.
Double doors open up from the dining hall into The Stables’ generous living area, which also offers plenty of light and space. There are stunning views of ancient oak trees from the living room, and a large flatscreen TV, iPod docks, Wi-Fi, and even a selection of board games make this room ideal for an evening of family entertainment in front of a roaring fire.
There are four luxurious king-size bedrooms featuring Hypnos beds, flatscreen TVs, and all with en-suite facilities; two with showers, one with a rolltop bath, and one shower wet room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are decorated in classic neutral shades of shell, taupe and fresh cream. Patterned headboards, armchairs and lampshades add eclectic touches of colour, and every room is light and spacious with stunning views of the estate and access to the courtyard.
For al fresco dining on a beautiful summer’s day, or a few drinks and a light supper under the stars, The Stables’ central courtyard is the perfect location. Complete with barbecue and large table and chairs with umbrella, this area is made for entertaining. Families with young children can enjoy a relaxing evening safe in the knowledge that the private gated courtyard offers complete peace of mind.
The Stables is one of several private holiday properties on this exclusive 5,000 acre estate that offers some shared amenities. There are stunning grounds and lakes to explore, and guests can hire rowing boats, paddleboards and bicycles. There is also a tennis court and outdoor heated pool for guests of the estate to enjoy, before venturing further afield to all that Suffolk and the heritage coast has to offer, or heading back to your own private and secluded accommodation for an evening with family and friends.
