Description

This Suffolk self catering holiday cottage is perfect for all the family with a swimming pool, fishing lake and an exciting children’s climbing castle. 

This former stable block and tack room has been beautifully converted to provide excellent holiday accommodation in Semer for family or friends. Single storey accommodation is well presented with four stylish bedrooms and a lovely sociable open plan living area, perfect for relaxing over dinner. French doors lead out onto the beautiful private gated garden, a lovely spot for dining alfresco. This is a great place for a family holiday with a fabulous children’s play area complete with a wooden fort in the field beyond, suitable for toddlers and teenagers alike. Guests of Stable Cottage can cast a line and fish in the well stocked lake, roam the fields and paths to the river… you can even stable your own horse in one of the outbuildings provided and enjoy Constable country from the saddle.  With acres and acres of meadowland to enjoy, woodland walks and footpaths over the hill to Kersey and beyond you might be tempted to leave the car in the drive.

This really is a beautiful area of Suffolk; the delightful countryside with the winding River Brett close to the farm, is peppered by traditional and unspoilt villages and old market towns. Head into the village to stock up on local produce discover ancient market towns or drive to the beach at Aldeburgh.

Pub within walking distance. Village shops. Hadleigh 3.5 miles, Monks Eleigh 3 miles, Lavenham 6.5 miles, Long Melford 12 miles, Ipswich 12.5 miles  

Why we love this property… it’s idyllic! Breakfast in the garden, take a dip in the pool, fish in the lake or head to the beach - perfect!

Reviews

We had a lovely stay. Facilities were good. Boys enjoyed the space and seeing the horses every day and plenty of safe space for the dog to play and run. Very spacious accommodation.
