A pretty Victorian cottage with wood burning stove and many original features. Placed well away from the hustle and bustle, the cottage serves as a peaceful rural retreat, just twenty minute's drive from Bury St Edmunds and 4 miles from the Suffolk/Norfolk border, making it a perfect touring base.

Luxurious Egyptian cotton bedding, feather pillows & duvets and white Turkish cotton towels are provided.

The space
Built in 1861 this former estate worker's cottage enjoys a tranquil rural location and there are lawned gardens with a small pond to the front (unfenced so small children need to be supervised) and a private courtyard area with seating at the rear of the property. The garden is visited by a wide variety of birds such as robins, greenfinches, collared doves, long tailed tits, goldfinches to name but a few.

The shaker-style kitchen with breakfast bar (seats 4 people) includes:

Electric oven
Microwave
Brita filter kettle
Toaster
Fridge freezer
Washing machine
Tumble dryer

The cosy sitting room has a wood burner (logs are provided), 42" flat screen TV and DVD player. There is a selection of children's DVDs.

The shingled courtyard area with seating at the rear of the property is perfect for alfresco dining.

Other things to note
Whilst we wait for BT to connect Bowbeck to super-fast broadband, the broadband speed can sometimes be slow compared to urban areas.

Location

Suffolk, England, United Kingdom

Bowbeck is a charming little hamlet which lies within the parish of Bardwell (shortlisted for 2017 Village of the Year). The Royal George pub in Barningham and Six Bells pub in Bardwell are merely a mile and a half away and the nearest shops are SPAR in Barningham which sells freshly baked bread and Hillcrest Farm Shop in Stanton (3 miles). Golfing, horse riding, segway and kayaking are a short drive away. The area offers great opportunities for walkers with the Peddar's Way and Icknield Way just 4 miles down the road at the Suffolk/Norfolk border. Food at the Norton Dog pub is highly recommended (popular so booking is advisable).
