    “We stayes in the property for a week in May.”

    6 people, four adults and two kids (4 and 2). Lovely property. Really well appointed and clean. Plenty of space for the kids and dogs to run around in the garden, which was really safe and well fenced to stop small people getting to the ponds. Great location and easy to get to most places we wanted without too much of a drive. Lovely comfy beds, everyone slept well. would love to return and stay again. 10/10

The property

Settled in gardens approaching 1 acre in the rural village of Windsor Green, is this 17th century thatched cottage; The Abbey Cottage. Enjoying a character interior with exposed chimney breasts and wonky floors, this pet-friendly dwelling is idyllic for a family of up to eight looking for an adventure to Suffolk. Be greeted by off-road parking and substantial grounds, hosting a bubbling hot tub for a night-time soak before making your way inside. Enter the spacious kitchen, with shaker-style cabinets; here, you can conjure heart-warming meals with the range cooker and for a fuss-free clean there is a dishwasher to assist you. Gather in the dining room to tuck into a feast and pour some fizz to celebrate your getaway; afterwards kick back in the sitting room, which houses a large fireplace with electric fire and a Smart TV for a family favourite. When the sun is shining, curl up in the conservatory to escape into a book or throw open the patio doors to explore the wonderful garden; at night climb into the hot tub to melt your stresses away. The extensive gardens combine a variety of areas which include a lawn for entertaining and a game of croquet, woodland, three ponds and a paved cottage garden square. The ponds and gardens are all fenced for peace of mind. The outbuildings are a particular feature with a games room for a game of pool or table tennis, a summerhouse to enjoy the sunny days, a playhouse for the kids and a reflection room nestled in the wood for some quiet time. As the day draws to a close, choose between three charming bedrooms to rest your head, there is a ground-floor King/ Zip Link Twin with an en-suite or climb upstairs to discover another two King beds, all with Smart TVs. There is also the option to sleep in the traditional shepherds hut in the garden which features another king/zip link twin bed. Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee and home-cooked breakfast, courtesy of the kitchen appliances before making a plan of action for the day ahead. There is an espresso machine, cafetiere as well as a Tassimo coffee pod machine. Jump in the car to visit the ancient town of Bury St Edmunds, certain to impress history buffs with its medieval cathedral, Moyse's Hall Museum to unveil the past and just outside the town is the fascinating West Stow Anglo Saxon Village. Ramble around Bradfield Woods National Nature Reserve or visit the National Trust site of Ickworth to explore the grand interior. For timber-framed buildings and a quaint museum, take a short drive into the village of Lavenham, where the famous Harry Potter was filmed and soak in the medieval charm of the place. For a special escape in a unique property, choose The Abbey Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
