A charming cottage that provides comfortable, modern and spacious accommodation for two people, this property is ideally situated for a rural romantic break away from the stresses of urban life.

This cosy detached house is set within 160 acres of working arable farmland on the outskirts of Stoke Ash, a small village just four miles from the town of Eye. Boasting a large kitchen with dining table and a spacious sitting room with doors to the well-maintained lawned garden, this property is a wonderful place for a relaxing break. The nearby town of Eye provides a variety of shops, pubs and eateries, whilst nearby Stowmarket and Diss offer yet more choice. The surrounding country is full of interesting activities, all within easy driving distance of this charming little cottage.


First the blackbirds start in the morning, then the pheasants, then the pigeons, then the pigs. What lovely country sounds! And we could hear them all without getting out of the warm, firm bed. But it we hadn't done that we would have missed the glorious ghostly blackthorn blossom and the cowslips, primroses and stitchwort on the banks. All mod cons too. We particularly made use of the washing machine and WiFi.

We loved it all, the accommodation was exceptional. The farm was clean and tidy. We will return. The Bothy was just perfect.
