    “We had a lovey stay at the gig house.”

    Absolutely stunning property surrounded by beautiful fields and overlooking a wonderful garden. Our dog absolutely loved watching the doves through the window over the archway! It was spotlessly clean and welcoming. ! The Kitchen could do with some better cutting knives, but we got by. We also found the beds very firm but they had wonderful linens and plush duvets. It was cold at night time but we didn’t light a fire so can’t really complain! would definitely recommend taking slippers ...

It was cold at night time but we didn’t light a fire so can’t really complain! would definitely recommend taking slippers and a dressing gown . Over all all of the highs outweigh any minor lows ! Stunning , beautiful perfect setting , we loved it .

The property

Guests arriving at The Gig House will come down the main drive of Columbine Hall, where they first reach The Gig House, with ample parking outside. The door opens straight into the sociable living space with a door to the wonderful vegetable garden at the side, impressive fireplace and wooden stiars taking you to the first floor. All three bedrooms have a restful country feel and lovely rural views, with the bathroom conveniently located for all of them, off the landing. A real treat at The Gig House are the award winning gardens which you can explore; perhaps take a picnic and find a quiet spot beside the moat to relax in complete peace and quiet with plentiful bird and insect life. Ground Floor Guests arriving at The Gig House will come in through the solid wood door from the gravel drive and enter the living space, which has a tiled floor and plenty of space in cupboards under the stairs for hats, coats and boots. There is another door leading from this main space into the kitchen garden beyond.

About the location

STOWUPLAND

Stowmarket 1.8 miles; Ipswich 12.1 miles; Woodbridge 20.1 miles; Aldeburgh 29.7 miles

Close to the charming market town of Stowmarket in Suffolk, Stowupland is a delightful rural village which boasts a small selection of shops and a couple of popular local pubs. Known by the Saxons as ‘Ultuna’ due to the presence of a large number of owls in the nearby woods, the village is a prime example of a traditional English village with some spectacular countryside surrounding it, making it the perfect spot for walking and cycling. Nearby attractions include Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, Stonham Barns Golf Park and the infamous Food Museum with the bustling town of Stowmarket just a few miles away, where you will find an impressive array of shops, pubs, restaurants, boutiques, galleries and cafes.
