A tasteful, generous and stylish cottage, surprisingly spacious inside and surrounded by a unique nature reserve resonating with birdsong

This is the larger of three cottages with 17th-century beginnings. The library has a double-sided bookcase filled with interesting books for all ages, with a chaise longue for quiet readers on one side and the sitting room on the other. Big comfy seats and a warming wood-burner will keep you happy indoors as will all the eclectic art and fresh garden flowers.

Light streams into a huge kitchen with French range cooker, big larder and utility room, and bi-folding doors to the terrace and the garden. Find homemade chocolate brownies, a loaf of sourdough, homemade jam or marmalade, homemade chutney, eggs from happy hens, a bottle of wine and local apple juice as well as all the basics for cooking. Stuart, a pastry chef and artisan baker can do food demonstrations here.

The dining room has a large table and another wood-burner; a barbecue, hot tub and lawn wait outside with water meadows behind you and the special Ling down the road.

Local points of interest from Sarah Pattison:

Puntos de interés sobre la región de
Sarah Pattison:

  • There are medieval villages, towns and churches to explore. We would recommend beautiful Bury St Edmunds - the ruins of the abbey & the Abbey Gardens; Clare, Lavenham and Long Melford; Norwich Cathedral, castle, 'The Lanes' pubs; and open gardens in summer
  • The beautiful gardens are full of roses in summer; the hot tub is perfect for summer sunsets or crisp winter mornings. One of the local shops boasts 200 artisan gins - perfect for sunset wind downs. If you don't like gin, there's a whisky distillery nearby
  • White House is close to the very beautiful medieval market town of Diss said to be Betjeman's favourite English town. You’ll find independent shops and cafes, an art centre (Corn Hall) and auction house (Gaze's). The area boasts lots of good pubs too
  • We would recommend a trip to Wooster's bakery at the windmill in Bardwell where you'll find the most incredible hand made sourdoughs, focaccia, croissants and pastries but get there early!! 8am-3pm Wed-Fri 9am-1pm Sat. You can grab a coffee too.
  • A trip to Wyken Hall is an absolute must. A country store, beautiful open garden, the best restaurant for miles, a café, woodland walk to the vineyard and a great weekly Saturday farmer's market (The Leaping Hare. Booking is essential for evening meals)
  • The Suffolk & Norfolk coast is just an hour away. Visit the Tim Hunkin 'Under The Pier Show' in Southwold, crabbing at Walberswick, take a boat out on the lake at Thorpeness, chips on the beach at Aldeburgh or fossil hunting at West Runton & Happisburgh.
