Orchard Cottage, West Stow Hall.

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
West Stow, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Orchard Cottage is a delightful retreat in the grounds of historic West Stow Hall. Tucked away in a very private location with beautiful views over fruit trees and paddocks, it is the perfect place for a peaceful holiday and an ideal base from which to explore Suffolk...if you can bear to leave!
Newly renovated in a sympathetic manner with traditional Suffolk flooring, exposed beams and distempered, the cottage has everything that makes a comfortable holiday home. The open plan kitchen / living area is fully equipped so Christmas dinner should be no problem! With its full length double doors it is cool on the hottest day whilst there is oil fired central heating for the depths of winter.
Both bedrooms are light and airy and have their own en-suite shower rooms with powerful showers and plenty of built in storage space.
We hope guests fi...

Interaction with guests
Andy and I own and live in the Hall so we are usually around if anything needs sorting or to offer advice but equally unless you need us we might only way to wave to each other when coming home or going out! We will welcome you and explain how things work and are always happy to offer suggestions as to places to visit or where to eat. Many people are also interested in our home as it is so historic and timie permitting, we are usually able to show them the rare wall paintings. We are Alamo members of Invitation To View so some forward planning guests have booked their stays to coincide with a tour and had the whole 2 hour experience!

This place is perfect. This is our second stay and already looking at booking our next one. It’s really comfortable and well equipped with adequate room for 4 people. The setting is very private but with Eileen (who is always extremely accomodating and friendly) literally...More

About the neighbourhood
West Stow is ideally suited for those who enjoy walking, birdwatching, fishing, horse riding and golf. There is fly fishing at the end of the drive at Larkwood fisheries, the Kings Forest is a five minute walk whilst riding lessons and hacking is available at either Culford Riding school or West Stow equestrian centre. We are surrounded by excellent golf courses! Lackford lakes iare a two minute drive and offer wonderful bird watching experiences.
The only Anglo- Saxon village in England is to be found in West Stow. Interesting in its own right it has wonderful events and re- enactments during the summer. Though younger guests would probably be just as happy playing in the super playground.
Getting around
Bury St. Edmunds, a lovely, historic town which is well worth a visit is only a 15 mins drive whilst Cambridge, Newmarket and Lavenham are 30 mins away. All are accessible by public transport. There is a frequent train service and good bus service from Bury.
We are ideally suited for visiting many NT properties including Ickworth ,Long Milford and Anglesey Abbey.
The heritage coast including Aldburgh, Southwold and Holkham make very enjoyable days out.
Car advised
How to get there
Getting to us is quite straightforward. Stansted is an hour away, there is a good railway service via Cambridge and Ipswich and the A14 is 10 mins drive.
If coming from London we have found it best to stay on the A 14 until junction 43 , signed Risby, and then come across country via Flempton to West Stow.
It is just as quick as using the A11 and less stressful.
Please note we share a drive with West Stow Stud which has a security camera. At the end of the drive turn left and park in front of the Hall.
The cottage is found by going up the steps, across the lawn and into the Orchard. The gravel path will lead you directly to it. There is automatic lighting which comes on in the evening. The cottage will be open with the keys inside
