Get to know Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex when staying in this fantastically located cottage with so many attractions just a drive away. A local attraction in itself, the holiday home is located on the Hedingham Castle estate, complete with impressive grounds, private parkland, a pond, and an ancient orchard. For rainy days, activities including an escape room, while a private tour of the castle can be arranged. The accommodation is a delectable red brick cottage sleeping a total of four guests, ideal for smaller families or couples seeking a little bit of extra space.

Pass through the private garden and into the property to be greeted by a lovely living room with cushy seating and a pretty window seat, the perfect spot to unwind in front of the Smart TV as the wood burner crackles. Another option for relaxation is to be found in the drawing room, a quiet space with a desk, perfect for answering some mid-holiday emails. When it’s time to eat, cook up a feast in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, with ample space at the dining table for the group to gather. When night calls, find three charming bedrooms upstairs that are served by a well-appointed family bathroom; a sumptuous double room and two single bedrooms. Outside, unwind in the private garden, the perfect spot for a quiet morning coffee. Beyond, enjoy access to the estate’s private parkland, relaxing in the ancient orchard and ambling around the large lake, rich with wildlife.

Discover so many popular destinations just a drive away, including Colchester (19 miles), Bury St Edmunds (24 miles) and the great city of Cambridge (29 miles).
