  • A stunning waterside property, situated in a quaint village on the Norfolk, Suffolk border
  • A great base for exploring the Suffolk coastline, visit the beaches at Southwold, Aldeburgh and Dunwich
  • Enjoy relaxing at the property in the private hot tub, watch the wildlife come to you
Property code: 44959

The property, built in the 16th century, sits in a courtyard and offers delightful accommodation, retaining many original features. Overlooking a pond with terrapins and an abundance of fish, it is the ideal place to relax and unwind.

Situated in the quaint village of Hepworth in rural Suffolk, this charming property sleeps four across two bedrooms and welcomes up to two canine members of your family, too. With countryside walks and footpaths right on your doorstep, your four-legged friends will be in their element, racing through miles of countryside and sniffing hedgerows as they go. There is a treat for you too, once you have worn Fido out: pour yourself a glass of wine and relax in the private hot tub overlooking a wildlife-rich pond.

 

Spacious and light, there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out in this charming property. The open-plan living room is complete with a cosy wood burner where you will no doubt find your canine snoozing peacefully in the evenings while you discuss your day of adventures over a home-cooked meal. Spend the day relaxing in the stunning grounds, watching the wildlife come and go; try your hand at fishing, relax in the hot tub or head off along one of the many walking routes. Keep an eye on your four-legged friend, as the cool water of the pond may be too tempting on warm days.

 

Head to the beautiful Bury St Edmunds (12 miles) with its majestic cathedral and historic abbey, both of which welcome dogs. Explore the quaint streets, independent shops and quirky cafes and restaurants. Stop for a bite to eat at one of the dog-friendly pubs, where your hound will be greeted with a bowl of water and plenty of fuss. Stretch your legs, hire a bike or try your hand at Go Ape at Thetford Forest (11 miles), or enjoy long walks in the woodlands and park at both the National Trust Ickworth House and the English Heritage Castle of Orford.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Gorgeous property that felt very luxurious. Beautiful spot. The quality of the fixtures, fitting and furniture was all lovely. Hot tub amazing. The owners were always discreetly on hand and were so welcoming and helpful, giving us free range eggs for breakfast and going out of their way to help us barbecue safely. Highly recommended.
