Overlooking a moat, with your own south-facing private sun deck and views of the water from all rooms, this cosy, converted barn is the ultimate escape to the country. Enjoy tranquil mornings wandering the two-acre garden with your four-legged friends (they're allowed), fish for rudd and perch in the pond just next door or identify as many birds as you can while sipping your steaming coffee – from Kingfishers, Treecreepers to Long Tailed Tits and Pheasants, the birdlife is a real added bonus. Follow the idyllic walking paths and cycling trails of the Suffolk countryside to the old market towns of Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth for plenty to eat, drink and do. Further afield (although, less than a half-hour drive away), you'll find the popular seafront town of Southwold and its dazzling pier for fun family days spent along the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Back home, curl up under the exposed beams and sloped ceilings with a mug of hot cocoa or a glass of wine as you scour the cookbooks for inspiration. Knock up a hearty meal for your loved ones in the charming, country-style kitchen that benefits from grey cabinets and a white metro-tiled backsplash to boot. Natural light pours into the living space, thanks to the double doors and elegant bi-folding windows, so you relax on the brown leather sofas while keeping one eye on the squirrels and muntjac deer outside.
