A Georgian Suffolk farmhouse set in acres of woodland, just 5 minutes from the sea at Shingle Street. The 850 acre farm was for many years used as a shooting estate. Edwardian owners with a love of the Arts and Craft Movement added house decoration and garden seating areas.
WOODBRIDGE 7 miles, SHINGLE STREET 3.2 miles, ORFORD 12 miles
Style: Perrinott House is built in the Georgian style with high ceilings and large rooms to compliment the original house, Hollesley Lodge which is now occupied by the owners.
Grounds: The house is set well back from the road down a drive, the entrance through attractive wooden gates which open into a large gravelled parking area, surrounded by lawns, shrubs and mature trees. With windows and doors on the east, south and west sides of the house, holidaymakers can make the very most of the sun throughout the day. The woods are home to deer which frequently wander into the garden, nightingales, owls, bats, even the occasional badger, so you don't have to travel far to see the beauties of nature. Beyond the fenced garden is woodland, with cover for pheasant and partridge, and paddocks where the owners keep their ponies and horses.
Attractive footpaths and bridleways criss-cross the area leading down to the beach at Shingle Street in one direction and the wildlife rich Sandlings heaths towards Sutton and Woodbridge in the other.
Sleeps: 4 in two double bedrooms both with ensuite, one can be adapted to a twin.
Perrinott House has the advantage of an additional wet room shower in the ground floor cloakroom, ideal for walkers, sailors and children alike.
Eating and Drinking out: There are several good pubs close by including The Swan at Alderton, The Sorrell Horse at Shottisham and Wilford Bridge at Melton.
In Woodbridge, just a fifteen minute drive from the house, there is a really good range of excellent pubs and restaurants offering a wide range of menus including English, Indian, Italian, Chinese and Vegetarian. There is an excellent range of shops including many selling fresh local produce, fresh fish and organic bread.
Self catering: The kitchen itself is spacious and very well equipped. Holidaymakers can breakfast on the terrace, in the kitchen or use the formal dining table in the living room. The local shop is just a mile away in Hollesley village. Good food shopping can be had in Woodbridge and in the quieter town of Orford. Woodbridge has a weekly market - Thursday - and twice-monthly farmers' market on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month - well worth a visit.
Children: Children are extremely welcome and there is a cot, high chair, stair gates (available on request), a microwave and plenty of storage space for everything from buggies to bikes. The garden is fully fenced and has the added interest of old logs and mature trees for youngsters to explore. On a quiet road there is ample opportunity for cycling as well as delightful woodland walks to explore. Sutton Hoois close by - a wonderful treat for children and adults alike.
Just over a couple of miles from the coast at Shingle Street, and in easy reach of the wonderful coastal towns of Orford (Orford Castle) and Aldeburgh there is lots to do whether you are visiting for a weekend or a couple of weeks.
Packing Tips: Beachwear and walking boots. Golfing shoes as there are 18 hole golf courses in Woodbridge and Ufford. Binoculars of course for walking over the heaths - famous for ground nesting birds including the nightjar.
Also the house is close to Poplar Park riding stables which offers riding lessons and hacking, do book in advance.
