Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

The Butler's Pantry 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 beautiful conversion from the servants' quarters has resulted in a stylish comfortable property which has been furnished with individually selected pieces. The Butler's Pantry is accessed via 13 steps into a Victorian brick courtyard.

Both the kitchen and the wet room have high sloping ceilings, giving the cottage the air of spaciousness. Enjoy the luxury of the very large bedroom which has a super king bed made-up with cotton linen, sumptuously furnished and with atmospheric lighting. Add a separate Lounge/Dining room and you can be sure the Butler's Pantry offers a perfect sanctuary for couples.

The Butler's Pantry features:

•Well equipped modern galley kitchen;
•Separate lounge/dining room;
•A large bedroom suite with a super king bed made up with soft cotton linen;
•Integral seating area in the bedroom;
•A massive wet room.
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

We normally welcome you personally to The Old Rectory and show you around your cottage. We are here during your stay in the event that you wish to contact us. We have a good knowledge of the local area which enables us to recommend places or events that many visitors to the area do not get the opportunity to experience and our philosophy is to go the “extra mile” to ensure you have a really enjoyable holiday!

We offer short breaks between October and the end of April, but it is always worthwhile telephoning us or looking at our website at other times if you are arranging a last minute break.

The village pub is a short stroll away from the cottages, The village is also the home of the fascinating Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum.

The market towns of Bungay; Harleston and Beccles offer a good range of shops; Norwich with its excellent cultural and shopping facilities is 19 miles away from the holiday cottages. The Suffolk Heritage Coast is also within easy driving distance. The area is a paradise for walkers and birdwatchers.

Whilst we can't guarantee good weather during your holiday at The Old Rectory, the statistics are in your favour, Suffolk and Norfolk boast one of the best climates in the country and the lowest rainfall in the UK (as little as one fifth of the South West and half that of the South Coast).

“as dry as Jerusalem, particularly Suffolk, with about the same rainfall” - Collette Nicholls Anglian Water media manager.

Suffolk, has an excellent sunshine record when compared to the rest of the UK and research has shown that it enjoys two more hours of sunshine a week than the national average.
