Surrounded by the beautiful Suffolk countryside and located on the edge of the idyllic National Trust Ickworth Estate; The Potting Shed is the perfect romantic, rural retreat for two.

This gorgeous holiday home has been exquisitely furnished to create a welcoming, chic, and stylish countryside bolthole. Bright and bold colours are showcased throughout The Potting Shed, from its sumptuous blue velvet sofa, to its vibrant orange, patterned headboard. All the soft furnishings and curtains have been beautifully designed and locally sourced giving this property a truly unique interior and every effort has been made to ensure you have the most luxurious stay.

As hard as it will be to leave the comforts of this stunning property, there is so much to explore from your doorstep. Head out across the rolling fields for lovely long walks around the Ickworth Estate, finishing your day at The Greyhound pub at the top of the lane, famous locally for its delicious homemade curries. Newmarket, the home of horseracing is only a 15-minute drive away, making this lovely home the ideal spot to enjoy the seasons meetings and in the opporsite direction, Bury St Edmunds is only a 10 minute drive away with plenty of lovely independent shops and restaurants to visit.
