Say hello to Bank House, Wickham Market

Bank House is an impressive Grade II listed house which has been sympathetically renovated, furnished and equipped, to provide unique self-catering accommodation for a short break or holiday. There’s a wealth of wonderful period features throughout this exceptional mid-sixteenth century Tudor timber framed property with nineteenth-century extension; heavy exposed timbers and lovely stone and brick floors, plus a large inglenook fireplace, all complemented by stylish furnishings, modern appliances in the handsome kitchen, and quality bathrooms. An attractive sunny walled garden and off road parking for three cars in this thriving market town are an added bonus!

This is an exceptionally large house for six guests, with ample space throughout for guests to socialise or enjoy a degree of privacy. The entrance hall is furnished for use as a more formal dining area, study or sitting room with TV; there’s a comfortable living room with the huge inglenook fireplace housing a wood burner; as well as a wonderful and well-equipped kitchen – a great place for entertaining or simply relaxing. There’s a single room on the ground floor with en-suite shower room and access to the garden; suitable for a Grandparent or Nanny. The other three charming bedrooms are up a quirky wooden staircase, two with king size bed and the third with a double; all with easy access to the large family bathroom and one with an en-suite shower room.

To the rear of Bank House is a lovely private area of garden which is an ideal sun trap, with a table and chairs for dining and a long bench. The garden path, bordered by lawn, fruit trees and shrubs, stretches down to an enclosed parking area for three cars.
