The Details...

Arrive at your Tudor farmhouse and delight in its seclusion. Tucked in the countryside, on this spacious estate in Suffolk is where you’ll find this charming cottage.

Inside are six spacious rooms with valley views, including one bedroom perching over the water of your moat in a Huckleberry Finn style cabin. All rooms have a king sized bed with en suite bathrooms, and there are some huge baths to spend a whole morning soaking in. Downstairs is a spacious dining room with huge bi-fold doors to let in plenty of fresh air and light in the morning as you enjoy a fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine or tuck into some of the fresh, local produce provided.

And if you don’t want to cook, that's no problem. With a team of chefs the estate offers everything from locally sourced home-cooked food to fine dining dinners for a pinch more formality. Seasonal picnic for 4? It’s the fridge. Black tie dinner for 16? Take a seat at the table. And you’re allowed to be picky, so order what you like and enjoy eating with a view for your cottage.

Moat Cottage sits on top of your very own secluded hill, approximately a 15 minute drive from the main Wilderness Reserve estate. When you’re ready to venture out and explore, you can enjoy a dip in the swimming pool with integrated hot tub designed by leading landscape architect Kim Wilkie, or play a game of tennis on the private tarmac tennis courts. Sit and fish, or shoot, or simply go exploring in the wilderness.

Sailing, golf and horse riding can also be arranged nearby, as can kite-surfing, waterskiing, parachuting, gliding and even flying lessons. Over a 100 different bird species have been spotted on the estate, including many owls and buzzards, so make sure you bring your binoculars. The estate hosts 'moth breakfasts' at certain points in the year and you can also take a 'morning chorus' birdsong tour with estate ornithologist Steve Piotrowski.
