About our home

We discovered this gem of a house in 2014 when we bought and renovated it from top to bottom adding a 3m extension along the back of the house with large sliding doors onto the garden. Open views across farmland give you a wonderful feeling of space and light and plenty of opportunity to bird watch.

With five bedrooms (2 double, 2/3 twin bedrooms), a large open plan kitchen, TV area and separate dining room/playroom the house is spacious and adaptable. When you're not using the dining table (seats 14) you can use it for table tennis, we have a trampoline in the garden (no fencing), a boule court, swingball, a Wii and plenty of board games so lots to entertain kids both large and small.

Tan House has an adjoining guest wing with a double and a twin bedroom, so ideal for two families to have their own space or one family who want lots of space! Friends have always commented on spacious, comfortable and practical the house is to stay in. There are a lot of lovely places to visit locally or you can hop on a train into London or drive to some lovely Suffolk beaches. AVAILABLE FROM 25TH JULY -15TH AUG 2018 but feel free to approach us about other dates also as we are very flexible. We look forward to hearing from you.
