Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Horringer, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
The Cottage has recently been beautifully renovated and adjoins an historic 15th century courtyard surrounded by organic grassland, it is set in undulating open countryside with stunning views. Exceptionally quiet location with medieval terraced lakes (fishing available) yet only 5 mins drive from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds. The property has 2 bedrooms upstairs along with a large bathroom with bath and separate power shower. Downstairs is a fully fitted kitchen, a large sitting room with a woodburner, a cloakroom and a further sitting room/3rd bedroom. Outside a terraced area for alfresco dining and a lawn. The property is highly suitable for families with young children. A fabulous place to stay with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do.

Really nice cottage, clean and spacious in an excellent location. Very close to Bury St Edmunds but at the same time a feeling of getting away from it all. Owner very helpful.

Additional amenities & feature info
We have tried to make the accommodation as flexible as possible whilst not compromising the taste with which we have decorated and furnished. The bathroom upstairs has been finished to a very high standard as has the kitchen. The wood burner in the sitting room adds wonderful atmosphere although the central heating will keep the place warm and cosy on its own. There is plenty of parking area and a private garden.
