About Gainsborough Cottage

Comfort and charm, toasty and warm! A beautiful barn complemented by a private patio which includes a new hot-tub and only a short hop to the shared indoor swimming pool and sauna.

So thoughtfully converted and accessible to less mobile guests and small children with ramped access, front and rear, plus all accommodation based on the ground floor.

Pretty features all around, a split stable door to a new farmhouse style kitchen. The cosy living area with a log burning stove and exposed wooden beams for the ultimate appeal. With a choice of master king bedroom and a twin bedroom this is super holiday home for a family or couples set in a gorgeous rural farmyard.

The cottage is well equipped with plenty of space for a cot and highchair. Indoor and outdoor games, toys and other items of baby equipment can be borrowed. The kids will love the choice of activities. Outside they will find an adventure playground and lots of space to race around! Smaller tots will be safe and happy in the playbarn with soft-play.

The perfect base for a Suffolk holiday, enjoy fantastic facilities such as the all-weather tennis court, the indoor pool, sauna, beauty salon, cabin-style shop offering local and well known treats, woodland walks, fishing pond and many animals to fuss and feed.
