Nestled in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, The Garden Flat is a truly tucked away haven, oh so perfect for two longing to rest and re-charge their batteries, or merely 'escape to the country'. Small but perfectly formed, this single level apartment offers all that you could need for a truly relaxing and memorable stay in this beautiful county. The front door opens onto a small shaker-style kitchenette; a perfect spot to heat up a delicious frozen meal from COOK in Woodbridge, or perhaps a warming bowl of soup come winter. Put the wine on to chill as you arrive, and look forward to a refreshing glass on the courtyard overlooking the rolling fields; you deserve it!

Leading on from the kitchenette is the main room, divided by a curtain, housing the comfortable king sized bed, wall mounted TV and dining table. Dream of kicking back and relaxing after days spent exploring the area; this space is cool and calming, with smatterings of grey and turquoise married with the gorgeous exposed wooden beams that make this converted barn so unique. 

Cretingham provides much to enjoy for holidaymakers. A friendly village pub offers a good selection of meals year round and has a beer garden to the front for those summer evening G&T's! The local golf club has also been recently renovated and welcomes day visitors; you must head to their restaurant for one of their delicious cooked breakfasts! With lots of wonderful walks throughout the rolling fields, there is plenty to explore should you wish to don your walking boots, or cycle. The nearby village shop in Otley is just a short drive away and has been nominated for many awards. You'll find everything you need there from pastries to greetings cards! 

Why not look to give your partner a special treat on your next holiday? The owners of The Garden Flat live next door and, as a professional chef, are delighted to offer guests private cooking lessons, as well as delicious evening meals by prior arrangement.
