The Gardener’s Cottage, in its stunning rural estate setting is the perfect holiday accommodation for those looking for a cosy country retreat, just a short drive from Suffolk’s celebrated heritage coast. This uniquely styled four bedroom cottage can sleep up to twelve guests - with a maximum of six adults across three double bedrooms, and a bunk room that can comfortably sleep up to six children. This former gardener’s cottage, built into the wall that surrounds the estates original flower and vegetable garden, retains original architectural design features such as gothic round-headed ogee mouldings and round-headed windows, and its elevated position means it overlooks woodland and hedgerows.

The Gardener’s Cottage is just as picturesque inside as it is out, with a cosy homely feel. Entering into the large family kitchen which is decorated in natural tones of stone and light clay, you’ll notice the vast skylight that floods the room with light, and bespoke cabinets and zinc-covered dining table add a unique look to the whole room. The kitchen features a large professional range cooker, butler sink and dishwasher, as well as Nespresso coffee machine for that much lauded morning cup of coffee!

Through to the living room and the first thing you’ll notice is its quirky design and plush cosy interior. This room features an unusual carved open fireplace, inspired by the ‘Green Man’ from Suffolk mythology.  Driftwood tables and natural stone flooring are offset beautifully by chunky dusky pink sofas and brightly patterned cushions and throws in a variety of luxurious shades and textures. This cosy living area features a hidden flat screen HD LED TV, and a selection of board games for your entertainment, as well as dimmable lighting and underfloor heating, to add extra ambience.

The Gardener’s Cottage is a ground floor property making it ideal for those with children or mobility issues - although this does mean it will be harder to decide which stunning bedroom to choose! There are 3 double bedrooms, two featuring an in-room freestanding roll top bath, and the third an en-suite shower room. All the rooms have king size hypnos beds and offer incredible woodland views. The spacious bunk room with en-suite offers a unique space for children or young adults to stay. Light and airy this room makes the most of the space with sturdy wooden bunks dressed in crisp white linen and plump cushions.

Outside guests can enjoy stunning views and some of the cleanest air in England. Just a short drive from all of the wonderful offerings of suffolk and its heritage coast, The Gardener’s Cottage is surrounded by acres of beautiful grounds, including lakes and woodland. All guests staying at properties on the estate have the opportunity to hire bicycles if they don’t wish to explore by foot, or rowing boats and paddle boards to take out on the serpentine lake. There’s a shared tennis court and outdoor pool for you to enjoy too before heading back to the private terrace for a barbecue and relaxing sundowner with family and friends.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • For groups of 12 travelling at the maximum capacity, one of the bedrooms features triple bunk beds sleeping 6 and is therefore best suited to children
  • There are other properties situated on the 5,000 acre estate, and so the lakes, tennis courts and pool are shared access. However The GARDENER'S Cottage still maintains plenty of privacy

While the grounds, lakes and tennis court are shared with the guests of the other homes, the Estate has been carefully designed so that your group will retain plenty of privacy.

The Estate is situated in a beautiful corner of East Anglia set just outside the Suffolk village of Yoxford and just a 10-minute car journey from popular Saxmundham, a market town which is just bursting with charm and boasts a variety of independent shops and excellent eateries. The closest coastal resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold are both just a 20-minute car journey away, whether you choose to sample fish & chips in Aldeburgh or take a stroll along Southwold’s Pier, a fantastic day out is guaranteed.

The town of Framlingham, home to the 12th century Framlingham Castle, the internationally-known “Castle on the Hill”, is just a 20-minute drive away and is well worth a visit while in the area
