A Suffolk getaway like no other, The Cartlodge offers a breath-taking abode, nestled in the idyllic and rural Suffolk countryside. The Cartlodge is situated just outside of the rural village of Sibton. This property enveloped by rolling Suffolk countryside is an ideal romantic retreat for active couples.

This beautifully presented Cartlodge is situated in the grounds of the main farmhouse and surrounded by far-reaching countryside views. The Cartlodge has exclusive use of the grounds during your stay so you’ll have complete privacy. There are so many special added touches to ensure you have an unforgettable stay and will want to return again and again.

Despite being a newly built Cartlodge, the property has been built to provide a chic yet charming ambience and furnished to the highest standard for that added touch of luxury. Deceptively spacious, this is so much more than your average Cartlodge! Enter via a private doorway and you will be welcomed into a cosy and sophisticated sitting room with wall-to-wall TV, chesterfield two seater sofa, and a cosy armchair. There is also a chest of drawers and two chairs. With large bifold doors leading into the garden you can truly appreciate the glorious views from here. The ground floor is also equipped with wet room, large utility space and your very own gym room!

When you climb the stairs and reach the first floor, it is sure to give you the ‘wow’ factor as this stunning space is much more spacious than one would first think. The first floor stretches the width of the property and provides an open plan studio style living and sleeping space, with three neat zones including bedroom area with a grand four-poster bed, the seating area with log burning stove taking centre stage, and the kitchen/diner area at the far side. Lovingly furnished to an exceptionally high standard, the owner has thought of everything to make this a wonderful getaway providing top quality self-catering accommodation, including bathrobes, Sky TV, and a few added extras.

This dreamy Cartlodge provides a serene setting for your next Suffolk stay with its tucked away location. The gardens truly are the cherry on top – there’s so many elements to enjoy including: an outdoor barbeque kitchen area, indoor garden dining room, golf net, wildlife ponds, and even an orchard.

Set in an idyllic countryside location, positioned not far from the Suffolk coastal favourites such as Aldeburgh and Southwold, you’ll have a network of wonderful walks on your doorstep. At the Cartlodge you’ll be just 8 miles from the coast and heath at Dunwich and if you’re a keen birdwatcher, then RSPB Minsmere is just 9 miles away. If you enjoy a spot of golf, then Halesworth is just a 10-minute drive from the property. There is an abundance of fantastic cycle rides to be had, allowing you to truly make the most of this scenic countryside location. On those days where a cycle ride doesn’t take your fancy, a Peloton is available in the gym room.

The Cartlodge is a very high quality rental. The standard of finish, fixtures, fittings and equipment are outstanding with the garden, outdoor kitchen & rekaxatiin lounges, sunroom, putting green and ponds excellent. There is nothing else you would need for a wonderful break at this location. Mini gym with Peleton, excellent kitchen, 3 TVs, strong Wi-Fi, gorgeous roll top bath - and superb finishing touches. The area is lovely and quiet but the coast - Southwold, Walberswick, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Woodbridge are all easily accessible with lovely pubs for food and independent stores including artisan bakers, butchers and general stores. Superb welcome pack on arrival too. No hesitation to recommend and we hope to return.

Mrs I,

The Cartlodge is a beautiful, spacious property and perfect for a holiday getaway. The accommodation was immaculate and extremely well kitted-out – in particular the kitchen. We really enjoyed the thoughtful extras on arrival, such as slippers, firewood, and a selection of local food products. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Dr A,

Easily accessible from the A12, set in a secluded rural location, the accommodation is furnished and equipped to a very high standard as described on the website. We had access to the gardens of the main house, which was not occupied by the owners during our stay, giving a wonderful, relaxing place to unwind. The owners had arranged a shopping basket of food including bread and other treats with fresh milk in the fridge which was plenty to get us started without having to find a local shop. Overall, 5 star accommodation and we plan to visit again.

Mr A,

Absolute perfection. Everything you could possibly want in a holiday property and a whole lot more, all to the highest standard. Without doubt the best place we have stayed in the UK.

Ms F,

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We could not have asked for anything more. The gardens are truly magnificent. We really enjoyed the peace and tranquillity and beauty of the outdoor spaces. We are sad to be leaving but feel we have experienced a slice of heaven. Thank you.

Mr Glyn B,

We were the only people on site, 2 acres of garden. It was private, peaceful and relaxing. Fantastic weather while we were there. Very welll equipped accommodation, lovely bath and shower; stunning loction. Wifi and moble signal better than at home. I think the farmhouse may do B & B, not sure as it was closed at the time, which would mean that some of that lovely space would be communal - makes it a good spot for larger groups when life gets back to normal. Fantastic for country walks, whether lcountry lane or across fields. It's also located on National Cycle Route 1 for the more energetic. Wish we had booked for longer. Visited Aldeburgh before we arrived on the Monday, and Southwold when we left.

Mrs K,

Thank you for the most wonderful stay. You have created a little slice of heaven and we wanted for nothing. The location is perfect, your gardens are sublime and the attention to detail is inspiring. We cannot wait to come back for another relaxing and comfortable break.

Past Customer,

Excellent location with high-class facilities. Everything seems to be catered for, whether active or relaxing.

Mr F,
