Welcoming Group Retreat, Halesworth

Style
Dating back to at least the 16th Century, Church Farm is a fabulous large country house which has been converted into a unique holiday let, set back from Halesworth town centre and only a fifteen minute drive to Southwold and the Suffolk Heritage coastline. Whilst only a short walk from the local pubs and shops, this fabulous, stylish property boasts a large garden with lawn and raised decking - perfect for family gatherings and group getaways. Five individually designed and styled bedrooms add to the charm of this characterful house with its exposed beams and rustic timber flooring. Statement, oversized lighting and mirrored accessories create a modern chic throughout the property with a masculine undertone. With two formal living areas, an attic games room and large garden, this is an attractive property to both families and groups of adults.

Living and lounging
When entering this property there are stunning, subtle suggestions of what is yet to come; exposed beams and original tiling propose a humble farmhouse while statement antler chandeliers are a hint at the surprises that lurk in this stylish home. The bespoke strip wood kitchen is heavily beamed with oversized copper down lighters and a granite effect worktop. A fabulous Range cooker with double oven and six ring hob sits between the kitchen and dining area and teamed with a large fridge freezer, washer dryer and dishwasher, creates a delightful and well-equipped kitchen. Through exposed beams and an open doorway, the kitchen leads into the dining area which boasts a fabulous ten seater dining table and stunning wicker seating adding a delicate and muted colouring with a hint of copper and dusky pink tones.

The first sitting room has a sophisticated yet inviting quality with indulgent large sofas and a large woodburner, perfect for cosy winter evenings. This living space has all the modern luxuries including a 50" Smart TV while an exposed brick wall encourages the characterful charm. The walk-through to the second sitting room has a door which leads out into the large garden. The second sitting room has a more formal atmosphere with a log piled feature fireplace, mahogany dresser and writing desk. Images of country sports and views of the large lawn and decking give one a real sense of traditional country living, away from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Church Farm comprises of five individual bedrooms, an En-suite and two bathrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. Each bedroom has been thoughtfully designed with its own personality and bold features which add to the extravagance of this fabulous holiday home. The first master has a boutique French theme with gold accents, oversized lamps and an ornate, fully mirrored French Louis Style wardrobe. The gold bed and decorative chandelier add to the feminine elegance of this charming bedroom.

The second master, aka "The Grand Room", is a bold, courtly room which invites you to relax while oozing style. The solid deep grey bed frame, Linwood heavy check curtains, statement mirror and decorative fireplace all contribute to the gentlemanly charm of this room. The Grand Room will never cease to disappoint with its hidden En-suite which vaunts an impressive shower cubicle with corresponding white suite and floor to ceiling subway tiles.

"The Ship Room" merges the indigo depths of the ocean with the pleasures of the broads as its Linwood sailboat wallpaper and full sized wall-mounted oars give reference to the location of Halesworth within the Waveney Valley, only fifteen minutes from the Suffolk coastline. The copper, directional lamps on either bedside table give the sense of search lights at dusk.

"The Garrett Room" is a cosy twin with cream and pink furnishings and a bold, sloping ceiling. Two 3ft beds sit in industrial style, white bedframes which create a light and airy space, perfect for two.

The family bathroom is a relaxing and sophisticated space as it unites old-London with English country. The dramatic roll-top slipper bath and white subway tiles radiate elegance which balance with the humble nature of the stone flooring and exposed-beam walls. As if this wasn't enough, an oversized rain-shower sits quietly in the corner, adding to the luxury of the country getaway.

The Old England Room is located on the ground floor and has the flexibility to present as a king or twin bedroom with classy features and oversized lighting. Period miniature portraits create an Old English Country feel to this bedroom which taps into the age of this charming country house. A window-style mirror creates a playful mood with a 'Secret Garden' elegance.
The ground floor shower room marries maritime and tradition with its deep, inky, indigo paintwork, Emily Bond Cornish Crab linen union window blind and wood-effect flooring. The classic white suite and floor to ceiling subway tiles team with the oversized shower to create a luxury yet sophisticated escape.

Attic and Cellar
A set of steep steps lead up to the attic from the first floor. This secret hideaway is half overcharged play room with a football table for those with the competitive, holiday spirit and half bean-bag bliss. With fabulous views, exposed beams and a playful colour scheme, rainy days will never be a disappointment. From the main hall an alcove leads to a second set of steep steps leading to 'The Cellar Room'. This underground den is a quirky yet sophisticated hideaway with unique lighting hanging from exposed beams, perfect for a few pre-dinner drinks and leisurely socialising.

LocationHalesworth

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.

Suffolk

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.
