Location & Things to Do
We are down a quiet lane just outside the village of Stonham Aspal in the heart of the beautiful rural Suffolk countryside. We are in the middle of nowhere and the middle of everywhere, perfectly situated for, um, everything in Suffolk!
We are surrounded by fields, public footpaths, walks, clear skies, hedgerows, wildlife and tranquility that’ll make your shoulders drop if you are visiting from a town or city!
Suffolk is one of the driest counties in the UK. It doesn’t mean it never rains here but we are pretty lucky.
We have tons of information on our website to give you ideas for things to do! If you want to get out and about, within half an hour in any direction you have the choice of our stunning heritage coast, not one but two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a plethora of historic villages and small towns.
You’ll be within easy reach of so many fabulous, interesting places such as the stunning heritage coast and many beautiful Suffolk villages, with more than you could possibly have time to fit everything in. So you’ll need to come back as many of our regulars already do.
To complete your experience we have teamed up with a select bunch of local business ‘partners’ to bring you the best of everything for your holiday in Suffolk we possibly can. Read our thousands of testimonials and all our Five Star Tripadvisor reviews and judge for yourself.

“Our second visit and everything as lovely as before. So peaceful, so very special. Thank you Carl for thinking of all those little touches”
“An enjoyable break in a lovely cottage. Didn’t realise Suffolk was so pretty! A lovely spot with lots to do, and not too far to travel”
“A lovely relaxing stay. The barn makes for a good base to explore Suffolk. Very cosy but quickly adapts to sunny days by opening the doors and relocating to the garden area”
“We loved this place, lovely walks and blessed with the weather. Thank you Carl”
“Excellent location. Took a nice bike ride, great to have them to borrow and much more in the shed. The outside garden room provided a relaxing space to enjoy the birds singing”
“We have had a lovely relaxing break. This is the perfect place to unwind, only the sound of the wind in the trees and the birds singing break the peacefulness”
