Exquisite single-storey holiday home located within striking Suffolk countryside. Invite your loved one and furry friend to this beautiful property to enjoy a romantic break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Take off your walking boots, hang up your dog leads and make your way into the cottage, where you'll instantly warm those chilly toes on the underfloor heating. Sink into the plush sofa in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and fire up the wood burner for evening snuggles with your other half. Nearby, a modern kitchen offers all the equipment required to impress your hungry guest before serving at the booth in the corner. A lovely large garden with a patio and lawn provides scenic surroundings for nighttime tipples and early morning cuppas or soaking up the views from the bedroom. Here, a king-size bed and free-standing bath provide luxurious comfort, while the bi-folding doors offer the opportunity to soak up the fresh breeze that will drift through this incredible room.

If you can tear yourself away from this romantic bolthole, the nearby village of Wickhambrook has a rich history of Anglo-Saxon settlements, wine marking and 16th-century homes. Visit here to join many glorious walking trails out in the sticks with your contented canine in tow. Head to Bury St Edmunds for a look around its cathedral and colourful Abbey Gardens (9 miles), Newmarket for a day out at the races (11 miles) and Long Melford for independent shops and galleries (12 miles). There's something for everyone here!

Whilst this is in a lovely location with peaceful vista and great wildlife, we found this cottage disappointing and not worth the price charged. The bifold doors were broken and couldnt be used, the cottage was not very clean and a bit shabby in multiple respects. We were also surprised that the welcome pack comprised of a sellotaped up, almost empRead morety pack of coffee. Overall pleasant but not worth the money. Hide

Beautiful place in a stunning location. Very peaceful and we had a lovely 5 night break. The wood burner helped make it even more cosy. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to come back in the summer.

The Old School House is a fantastic property to stay at. It is very relaxing with impressive countryside views all round, we even saw a barn owl in the back garden. We loved our stay here. The only slight issue we had was with the property draining system but I believe the owners are aware of the problem and are planning to fix it.

Absolutely stunning property in a gorgeous location! We were sad to leave! Furnishings are extremely well done, the bed was super comfortable and the views outside were amazing! There were also a fair few walks nearby including one which we did from the end of the lane. It wasnt too far a drive to get into town and we were lucky enough to be aroundRead more on a weekend where a local event was taking place in a nearby field to partake in candy floss and watch a bit of Morris dancing! We will definitely be coming back in future and Ive already recommended the place to just about everybody who will listen. Thanks for providing a home away from home! Hide
