Description from owner

Description

The Cottage has recently been beautifully renovated and adjoins an historic 15th century courtyard surrounded by organic grassland, it is set in undulating open countryside with stunning views. Exceptionally quiet location with medieval terraced lakes (fishing available) yet only 5 mins drive from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds. The property has 2 bedrooms upstairs along with a large bathroom with bath and separate power shower. Downstairs is a fully fitted kitchen, a large sitting room with a woodburner, a cloakroom and a further sitting room/3rd bedroom. Outside a terraced area for alfresco dining and a lawn. The property is highly suitable for families with young children. A fabulous place to stay with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do.

Further details indoors

We have tried to make the accommodation as flexible as possible whilst not compromising the taste with which we have decorated and furnished. The bathroom upstairs has been finished to a very high standard as has the kitchen. The wood burner in the sitting room adds wonderful atmosphere although the central heating will keep the place warm and cosy on its own. There is plenty of parking area and a private garden.

Reviewed 10 Feb 2020

Beautiful place, shame that it was filthy. Mould in dishwasher (dishwasher wosnt working properly)dirty fridge, and absolutely filthy owen. Sofas and armchair need deep cleaning. This whole place needs deep cleaning. Outsite bin full of rubbish, rusty bbq (very small). Would return only if the place was deep cleaned!

Reviewed 10 Oct 2015

In itself the location is 5-star. Absolute peace and quiet. Okay, some noise during the day, but not really disturbing. No traffic, a few buildings huddled together on a hill amidst undulating farmland, offering great views. Starry nights (weather permitting of course), And from this pastoral picture you are in buslting Bury St. Edmunds in just a few minutes. Area is great for cycling and visiting all those gorgeous ancient churches. Bury can be reached by bike via quiet country lane. Cottage is great too: soak your tired limbs in the bath, comfy beds, well equipped kicthen, cosy lounge with wood burner. The owner, Rupert, very friendly and accommodating. Far too much praise already, since we would love to keep this place a secret.
