Alton Water Reservoir is set in 400 acres of beautiful Suffolk countryside and is the perfect spot for walks, bike rides, wildlife spotting and fishing.

Guests can cook, eat and socialise all within this area and on a nice day the French doors can be opened allowing you to sit outside and admire the views of the surrounding countryside. There is a handy WC on the ground floor and lift stop number one.
Go up a flight of stairs and the entire first floor is given over to the main living area. Relax on one of the comfy sofas around the TV/DVD, play a game of pool or sit and read with a coffee – there is ample space for small groups and individuals to enjoy this room without getting in each other’s way. The sheer size of this property provides a layout that works effectively for many different groups.
With nine bedrooms over three floors the tower can easily accommodate individual families. Each floor has three bedrooms – a king-size with en-suite shower room, one twin and one twin zip-and-link (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) and also a separate bathroom with shower over bath and WC. All bedrooms have a TV and plenty of storage space. In addition to the large living area, on the top floor is the games room which is home to a Nintendo Wii and a Sega Mega Drive along with two separate TV screens which should keep everyone entertained.
Guests can also make the most of the high ceilings and wander around the overlooking gallery area – take a look at the renovation pictures or look out of the windows for an impressive view. Tucked away the theatre style cinema room provides an exciting extra luxury to this holiday home. The tiered seating accommodates all guests and the stairs can be lit up in the dark. The powerful sound system can also be used with the karaoke machine making this a perfect facility for hen parties and other celebrations. There is even a podium available for business presentations.
To get away from it all, take the stairs from the games room up on to the roof deck. Here you can sit in the roof garden with a cold drink and enjoy the backdrop of surrounding countryside from the viewing platform. At 80 feet high, you will be mesmerized by the views even on a misty day. If you don't have the head for heights, stay on ground level and enjoy the private hot tub with nearby seating, a perfect place to relax. There is a brick built BBQ surround so all you need to do is bring your own disposable BBQ's to enjoy dining alfresco. There are electric gates and ample off-road parking.
