The detail

Rising high over the surrounding rural idylls, Harkstead Hall is a vast and imposing detached house with a storied past and excellent amenities, ideal for groups in search of a self-catering countryside retreat. Easily capable of accommodating 20 guests between six bedrooms, Harkstead Hall boasts private planted grounds, stunning interiors and pubs within easy walking distance.

The house itself is a sprawling and private home, with a combination of charming original features and slick modern additions, creating a space which combines grandeur with comfort. Step into a historical property with high ceilings, large windows and far reaching views, and immediately feel the relaxing embrace of serious luxury.

With expansive indoors and outside space, Harkstead Hall is ideal for all sorts of large groups and remains popular with families hosting reunions, celebratory wedding parties and old friends looking to take a holiday in style. Spend your days strolling in the grounds and beyond with a picnic, or checking out the nearby beach, enjoying excellent local ales in the region's winning pubs, and cooking up feasts for your whole party to enjoy.

Of the six bedrooms, two contain a large double bed, and the other four contain a large doubled bed as well as a sofa bed for two. No detail has been overlooked in kitting out this magnificent house, which boasts a widescreen TV for movie nights, speedy WiFi throughout, and a stately hot tub to unwind in after a long day of hiking. Curl up in the lounge or the drawing room, each with their own open fires, or strike out into the surrounding region and take in the stunning vistas of the River Stour.

While the property feels tranquil and private, convivial guests will be delighted by the nearby amenities. As well as breathtaking footpaths snaking around the property, you can be at one of several pubs in less than 15 minutes on foot. From casual dining spots for families to high-end restaurants for special meals, there is a wide selection of cafes, pubs and bars nearby, and of course a wider selection once you get into Ipswich proper, just over five miles away.

Head to Harkstead Beach on foot, or make the slightly longer journey to Felixstowe South Beach. In the summer, spend all day out in the sea and on the sand, enjoying crab sandwiches and ice creams, and in the winter wrap up warm and head out along the Shotley peninsula, treating yourselves to cosy pub lunches, roaring fires, and wine in the hot tub.
