  • "Positives: "The Old Cart Shed" is lovely, it sits in a very quiet setting in the Suffolk countryside, was perfect for our dogs too as the garden was completely safe & secure."

    The Beds were comfortable, the accommodation was warm and welcoming, plenty of hot water, shower very good. Negatives: The code for the Key Safe didn't work, after ringing the owner & Sykes we were given the correct code. Two of the three beds had not been made up, after another phone call the manager came over to make them. The Sofa wasn't very comfortable. After these initial hiccups and plenty of cushions on the Sofa, we enjoyed a lovely stay and would reccommend "The Old Cart Shed"....

The property

Hopton-on-Sea 2.3 miles.

Resting in the rural village of Lound, near the amenities and shoreline of Hopton-On-Sea, Suffolk, is The Old Cartshed, a contemporary, two-bedroom barn conversion.

Located a short journey from The Broads and enveloped by nature-filled walking and cycling trails, The Old Cartshed mixes both character and style, offering a delightful base for a group of friends or a family of four.

Benefit from two off-road parking spaces, before entering this sympathetically-renovated barn.

Be welcomed into the well-equipped and spacious kitchen/diner, where you'll find all the essentials to prepare and enjoy delectable meals.

If the weather permits, bask in your surroundings whilst dining alfresco, making use of the private, well-presented rear patio.

For a space to socialise and unwind, head to the sitting room, oozing elegance, and style, with a rustling woodburning stove to light on cooler evenings; sink into the plush sofa with the TV for entertainment, or for a quiet nook, locate the snug, also offering a handy sofa bed.

As day turns into night, select between two luxurious king-size bedrooms, the first complete with a TV and en-suite shower room for full privacy.

The second is serviced by a spacious bathroom, housing both a bath and shower to suit all preferences.

Once you're ready to explore, grab your walking boots to travel through The Broads, stopping off for lovely riverside views across River Yare, or head towards the coast to birdwatch whilst visiting the Carlton Marshes Suffolk Wildlife Trust, before touring the Lowestoft Museum, or enjoying a day at the beach near South Pier Lowestoft.

Great Yarmouth Beach is within proximity, brimming with amusements, a golden sandy shoreline, arcades, and a host of attractions to fill your itinerary with, or perhaps remain local to take in the breath-taking landscape surrounding Lound Lakes, the perfect setting for a leisurely stroll.

For further beauty spots to discover, make your way through the Mid-Yare National Nature Reserve, or travel south to Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB, plus many further picturesque landscapes across the region.

Escape to rural Suffolk at The Old Cartshed.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
