Large Country House, near Halesworth (ATF2SS)

The Property is a holiday cottage with a difference. When approaching the property along the private drive, guests are greeted by the 16th Century House, its beautiful original chimneys, leaded windows and thatched roof.

With extensive grounds and living areas, it’s the perfect place for large families and groups who can enjoy time together in a variety of spaces. The sizeable centre room has wooden walls, a tremendous fireplace, original floors and an eight-seater round dining table. The kitchen is well-appointed for self-catering, complete with a well suited Aga. The outside barn has been renovated into a games room where guests can enjoy a spot of table tennis and the gardens offer an abundance of space along with lawn tennis. Exposed timber beams run through the farmhouse which boasts four bathrooms, five bedrooms and cosy snug areas for when guests feel like having some time alone. Come rain or shine, Ashtree can cater for all needs. Guests can cosy by the fire, or enjoy an evening drink outside in the courtyard.

Ashtree is surrounded by the Suffolk countryside, where stunning views of rolling hills can be seen from every window. Situated in Wissett, Ashtree is just a mile from the town of Halesworth and a twenty-minute drive from historic coastal towns such as Southwold and Walberswick. Shop: 1 mile Pub: 4 miles.

Why We Love This Property: The Property does not only have everything one would need for a self-catering holiday and more, but its character is something to behold. We especially love the view of the house when entering the property from the private drive.

Easy access to the coast with a choice of beaches, this market town has a packed calendar of exhibitions, plays, music and cinema. There are number of small independent shops and local produce available from the weekly market.

The cultural hub is the New Cuts Arts Centre, as well as lots of fun events there is also the opportunity to take part in a work shop or an exercise class. Steeple End Gallery has a lovely collection of pottery, sculptures and paintings. Also the town museum is housed within the old railway buildings, which makes for an interesting visit to learn more about the local artefacts which have been excavated and the past history of this Victorian station. The Airfield Museum has an extensive range of WW2 memorabilia and aircraft exhibits.

The Millennium Green is the largest in the country, there are over 50 acres of meadowland and marshland. The perfect spot for a peaceful walk with the chance of spotting a kingfisher or an otter. The Blyth Estuary is also great for watching the local wildlife and migrating birds. The Oasis Camel Park is an ideal day out for all the family, with interactive talks throughout the day and the chance to have a ride on a donkey or camel. There are also smaller pets such as rabbits, and guinea pigs plus a train ride which is a fun way to see the park.


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.
