Comfortable Holiday House, near Darsham (SFOHBSF)

A very imposing Big House Holiday home created from two adjoining 16th century barns, now completely integrated, on the top of a hill, high above the meadows and woodland surrounding Westleton, Dunwich and the sea. Entering The Property, one can immediately see evidence of the fine craftsmanship which went into both the construction and refurbishment of this beautiful building.

This Suffolk Holiday Property:

The Property is set in very private landscaped grounds of around an acre with a wonderful new hot tub and sauna and large terrace with table and benches, loungers and parasol. Children will enjoy the garden where there is a large lawn with climbing frame (suitable for children 3 - 14) with ropes, ladders, slide, swing and tree house and trampoline. There are fantastic views over 75 acres of paddocks and meadows around the barn. There is ample parking in the private drive and outside the cart lodge.

Deer roam the fields while barn owls and marsh harrier wheel overhead.

Accessible by road and rail, Darsham Station is just ten minutes walk from the house. On the East Suffolk line, you can get trains direct from London, Ipswich and Norwich.

The Property is in the heart of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to Suffolk's Heritage coast at Dunwich and the world famous RSPB reserve at Minsmere. Halesworth (great for shopping and browsing) and the famous seaside town of Southwold are both close by and with Westleton just down the road there are plenty of lovely pubs and restaurants close by. There is a good country pub in the village and an excellent farm shop, Emmerdale Farm, just a couple of minutes walk down the drive.

The Property has magnificent two storey drawing room with large Inglenook fireplace and log burning stove and minstrels gallery with room for the whole party to lounge and relax. Much of the ground floor has been reconfigured in 2017 to include a top quality and very spacious newly fitted kitchen, perfect for cooking and entertaining a large party and a new second sitting room with TV (including Sky). The Property makes the ideal property for a gathering of friends, or a family reunion. The ground floor twin bedroom works well both for someone with some mobility limitations (there is a ground floor shower room as well as a guest cloakroom) or for two to four children (there are two put up beds available). All bathrooms have been fully upgraded in the last year.

LocationSuffolk

The somewhat curious county of Suffolk forms a part of the region known as East Anglia. Its eastern edge is bounded by the North Sea, with neighbouring Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. The county of Cambridgeshire lies to the west. It has no cities and no motorways, but it does have many gardens and ruins and history in spades, from the Magna Carta to the Saxon relics of Sutton Hoo.

Unusual (for Britain) timber-framed buildings, dating back to the 16th century, vie with Tudor mansions in the attractive streets of market towns. In common with Norfolk, it is a fairly flat county, with much of its area devoted to farming and other rural pursuits. Its coastal geology of sand and clay, combined with the longshore drift current of the sea, means that the land is eroding constantly. Sea defences protect many of the towns but, equally, a good deal of property has been lost as the cliffs are worn away, and more is threatened.

Suffolk is famous throughout the UK for its distinctive dialect, horse racing (the town of Newmarket is the epicentre of British racing) and the arts. Festivals and other shows are common, and fish and chips and Adnam's ale are the order of the day.

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
