Escape to the countryside in this stylish self catering cottage in Suffolk. The perfect family holiday home for animal lovers. 

This beautiful barn conversion is great! Accommodation is all on one level with plenty of room for six guests in three bedrooms. The open plan living area is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine over dinner. A characterful and spacious area with vaulted ceilings, a wood burning stove and French doors onto the enclosed garden complete with a swing, swing boat, trampoline and a summer house.

Shepherd’s Watch is on a working farm so a must for animal lovers! Children will love to learn about the animals and they can even help out with bottle feeding the lambs and watching the sheep shearing. Whatever the season there’s always something going on: from the lambing  in January and February, calving in the spring to the swallows nesting in the barns and kingfishers on the moat, hares in the fields and barn owls in the woods, this is a haven for wildlife!   

Pubs and shops Halesworth and Bungay 6 miles, Southwold 14 miles, Minsmere 17 miles,  Framlingham 17 miles.

Why we love this property… stunning interiors in a beautiful location! Kids with love collecting fresh eggs from the nest boxes and bottle feeding the lambs.
