Description

Lake View Cottage is a beautiful a 4 star self contained rural holiday home. It was converted from our stables in 2010 and awarded 4 stars by the English Tourist Board. We have made many more improvements to the grounds since then and guests have said it is more like 5 star accommodation. The cottage sits within our grounds of 4.1/2 acres and includes a carp fishing lake, with summerhouse and jetty. We also have a 4 hole golf chipping green (or 5 hole over lake which is not for faint hearted)(clubs supplied). There are two games rooms one with pool table, table top football, small library and outdoor games. The other has table tennis and darts. We supply BBQ and lounge chairs. Walkway round grounds for dogs and walks from door. Plenty DVDs to keep children and adults amused. Sand bin for smokers outside lounge French windows.

The accommodation, which is all on one level with a ramp and step entrance, has 1 double on-suite power shower room with sink and toilet. A twin

Walkway round grounds for dogs and walks from door. Plenty DVDs to keep children and adults amused. Sand bin for smokers outside lounge French windows.

The accommodation, which is all on one level with a ramp and step entrance, has 1 double on-suite power shower room with sink and toilet. A twin bedroom with bathroom opposite. The lounge has a leather bed setee and very comfortable lounge chairs with French windows opening onto enclosed garden with view over small lake. The garden has table and 6 chairs, also plenty seating areas around grounds. The kitchen has all the usual mod cons, ie dish washer, washing machine, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and all crockery, plus table and 4 chairs. Hair dryer supplied. There is a wide entrance hall with doors off to bedrooms, bathroom and lounge through to kitchen. So no walking through anyone's bedroom to get to bathroom. There is a large car park next to cottage, so never a problem parking. Travel cot and high chair can be supplied on request.

We are situated in a quiet sleepy country village on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. Walks abound from the doorstep, so ideal for walkers or anyone with a well behaved dog. You can stay on the grounds and just relax and enjoy the wildlife, free range chickens (and eggs), ducks and ducklings, moor hens and much more (home made bread on request). We grow our own organic fruit and vegetables and make our own apple juice.

Visit the Suffolk/Norfolk coastline. The famous Southwold about 40 mins drive as is Aldeburgh. Train from Diss (10 mins drive) to Norwich (about 17 mins). Visit Bury-St-Edmunds and loads of other places (places of interest book in cottage) Diss has 3 supermarkets, chemists, restaurants, coffee houses and the Corn Hall which shows films, theatre etc. and the famous Mere where you can sit and relax and feed the ducks, or have a glass of wine or coffee and look out onto it.

The Railway Tavern pub is at the top of Mellis Road within walking distance, dogs welcome and food served daily. This is a taste of the good life.

The East Anglia region

Thrandeston is a sleepy country village surrounded by fields and wildlife. The village boasts a pond with duckhouse surrounded by thatched cottages. We have our village green where we hold a hog roast in the summer and village hall for other local events, coffee mornings, table top sales, carvery, and different varying events.

We have numerous country pubs with lovely food, lots of local walks and bikes can be hired from Diss.

We are about 40 minutes drive from the coast and Southwold and Aldeburgh are well worth a visit. We have Wyken Vineyard about 25 mins drive with wonderful gardens to walk round and grounds where grapes are grown. Hugh converted barn for coffee or lunch/dinner and craft shop. About 15 minutes drive is the famous Thornham Walks with good paths for wheelchairs and woodland paths for walkers, there is also a café and restaurant in grounds. There is the 4 Horseshoes Pub in Thornham reputed to be the oldest pub in Suffolk and also haunted.

Eye

This is a farming community so the only noise you will hear are those of the farmers. At the moment they are harvesting, taking in their crops of wheat, corn, rapeseed and beet, so you may encounter a tractor or a horse. There are a lot of horse riders around and keen cyclists apart of course from walkers. The area is flat so easy walking and there are local walking groups.

If you are around in June come to our hog roast on the green, or one of the many other local events in Thrandeston and Mellis. We even have a Jazz festival in Mellis Church in September which is packed to the seams.

We have Banham Car boot sale on Sunday mornings which is huge and of course Banham Zoo for the children. There is Bressingham Railway with Thomas the Tank Engine for the children just outside Diss. We have Blooms Garden Centre with coffee house and soft ball area for the young children - watch while you have coffee and cake of course.

There is plenty to do in Diss with Tesco, Morrisons and the Co-op, Boots, restaurants including Chinese, Indian, Kebab and wonderful fish and chip restautant. We have an arts centre at the Corn Hall with weekly films and theatre. Hardware shops and lots of coffee shops some of which overlook the Mere where you can relax and watch the ducks.

Diss has an excellent train service half hourly to London and to Norwich so no problem about driving. Car park at station and also taxi service too.
