  • "A very interesting conversion of an old farm building, with loads of footpaths, but with easy access to the coast , Framlingham & Ipswich etc."

  • "On the whole an enjoyable holiday in Suffolk staying at the old stable."

    A couple of things to note that may be of interest to future occupants:- 1. The hot water pressure to all basin taps and kitchen sink very poor (3 in all). 2. The significance of the nearby public bridleway that crosses the property was very much downplayed. There were literally dozens and dozens of walkers from time to time, including most with dogs, ( some off the lead) making their way past the house effectively through the garden. We had on one occasion one owner who'd lost control of their animal as it made its way into the kitchen whilst we were having breakfast!!!( Our door was open as it was a beautifully hot morning). If privacy is important to some tenants whilst sitting out in the sun, you will not find it here. Having said that, we were out most of the time so weren't too bothered ( most people were friendly however, if not a little awkward themselves being so close to us at the times we spent outside). 3. The shower room w.c seemed very weak in its flush. 4. The bathroom basin seemed to drain very slowly and became almost unusable by the final two days ( may just need some sink unblocker)... Whilst these points do imply a negative picture somewhat, they are fairly minor and didn't negatively impact our stay but they do need raising as without honest appraisal, people can't make an informed choice. We had a great stay and came away having had a lovely break in a beautiful setting...

  • "Really nice property."

    There is a footpath running right past the property so that's something to bear in mind. Also there was no welcome pack. Lots of places we've stayed at provide some milk, tea bags coffee etc...sometimes even wine but there wasn't anything provided at this property. Lovely place and location though. Thanks

  • "Great situation for us, as it is near family, with easy access to the coast."

    Also has loads of 'walks' around Witnesham. Ticks all our boxes.

The property

Ipswich 5.1 miles.

Enjoying an idyllic rural setting in Witnesham close to Ipswich in Suffolk, The Stable is a beautifully presented barn conversion, which is ideal for a family holiday or couples travelling together.

Boasting a wealth of traditional features, the property still offers all the home comforts you’d expect from any holiday home.

The open-plan living space has that real ‘wow’ factor as you walk in with original tiled flooring, exposed wooden beams and wood panelling helping to create a truly rustic feel.

The area is separated into a large seating area which is a lovely sociable space with an elegant dining area all set up ready for guests to enjoy long, lingering meals together.

There is also a fully fitted kitchen which is well-equipped with everything needed to produce wholesome food for the whole family and if the sun is shining, then you might be able to dine alfresco in the gorgeous gardens which offer stunning views over the surrounding countryside.

Come bedtime and the two bedrooms are both beautifully appointed with feature wooden beams and wood panelling helping to create a wonderfully cottagey feel.

In the morning, jump in the bath for a relaxing soak, grab a coffee on the patio and soak up those views one more time before heading out for the day.

The nearby village of Witnesham is a beautiful rural village with a small selection of shops and a traditional pub, whilst the town of Ipswich is just a few miles away and is well worth a visit.

If you want a round of golf then check out Fynn Valley Golf Club which is open to non-members and there are loads of walks, hikes and cycle rides in the area which make the most of the captivating rural views.

About the location


Bramford 3 miles; Holbrook 6 miles; Woodbridge 9 miles.

Ipswich is one of England’s oldest towns, believed to have been created in Anglo-Saxon times and built up more and more around the dock since then. Now, the dock area has undergone a large redevelopment, offering a good selection of restaurants and bars overlooking the marina. As well as a selection of historic buildings around the town, it is also home to the youngest Grade I listed building, a large, glass-built commercial office building in the town centre. Ipswich was awarded the cleanest town award in 2007 and has a number of things to do, including a good selection of shops to browse and brilliant restaurants and bars, not to mention being home to Ipswich Town Football Club! The town offers a central location for exploring the popular county of Suffolk, with its beautiful heritage coastline, historical villages and beautiful waterways; a great place to visit, all year round.
