Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

The Old Coach House at the Old Rectory in Flixton near Bungay, is a one bedroom self catering holiday cottage. Situated on the border between Suffolk and Norfolk, and laying in grounds of almost seven acres – surrounded by farmland on three sides, the grounds are a haven for wildlife. The one bedroom cottage provides the ideal holiday location if you want to leave behind the strains of town or city living and relax in the tranquil surroundings of a Victorian rectory amidst rolling unspoilt Suffolk countryside.

Well behaved dogs are welcome

A clever conversion of the Rectory's Victorian stable block has resulted in a spacious single storey property, with excellent views over the Old Rectory's fruit orchard to the surrounding farm land. The high ceilings reinforce the ambience of spaciousness, add a log burner for those romantic winter evenings and The Old Coach House offers a perfect retreat to escape from the pressures of a busy life.

The Old Coach House features:

•Lounge/dining area with excellent views;
•Well equipped modern kitchen;
•Period features retained where possible;
•Bedroom with a King-size bed made up with cotton linen;
•en-suite wet room;
•Ideal for less mobile guests.

The holiday cottage has a 4-Star assessment by VisitEngland. In addition the cottage has received the accolade of a coveted Gold Award – reserved for accommodation that provides exceptional quality in all areas but in particular in service and hospitality
