Beautifully converted, this home is the ideal getaway in a tranquil spot filled with fantastic facilities for everyone to enjoy.

Nestling in 15 acres of ancient meadows, woodland and orchard on the slopes of the Alde valley, these three holiday cottages have been sensitively converted from the outbuildings of nearby Cransford Hall. Featuring an Edwardian walled garden, the grounds are a refuge for a variety of wild birds, including owls. Of individual style and character, the cottages boast exceptionally well-equipped kitchens and fittings, furnishings and fabrics of the highest quality. Each has its own private garden area with furniture, all enjoy shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, pool table, table tennis and a children’s area with toys and games. There are excellent walks, too, and facilities for croquet and other lawn games. The owner, who lives nearby, is a gourmet cook and offers evening meals for delivery to the cottages (only by prior direct arrangement). Within walking distance is Bruisyard with its Saxon church. Framlingham (4 miles) is a small market town with shops, restaurants and inns; in its picturebook setting, the 12th-century castle dominates the town. Sutton Hoo, with its visitor centre, is just a 20-minute drive away. Aldeburgh (about 12 miles) is popular for sailing and famous for its music festival and concerts at Snape Maltings. The coastal area is an excellent one for bird-watching, particularly at the RSPB reserve of Minsmere (10 miles). Sports centre, golf and riding all within 20 minutes’ drive.

The Foundry (BER), The Pottery (BES) and Gardeners Cottage (BEX) can be booked together to accommodate up to 13 guests.

Set in the corner of the walled garden with its own south-facing patio, this detached, single-storey cottage has been extremely well furnished and equipped. Large living/dining room with wood-burning stove and French doors to patio. Arch to well-fitted kitchen with small breakfast bar. Steps down to double bedroom. Single bedroom. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet.

    My memories of our stay. A beautiful, tranquil setting, if it is peace and quiet you want, this is the place. The roads nearby are mainly single track but there was little traffic and within a few miles there were plenty of places to eat and drink. We both enjoyed our time here.

    This was an excellent base for attending the Aldeborough Festival at Snape and birdwatching at Minsmere and Dunwich. The cottage is in a delightful setting in a walled garden that is beautifully maintained. The lack of phone signal will be a plus or a minus depending on what you need to do during your holiday!
