    “Had been told Wi-fi wasn’t working but when we got there apparently it had been fixed by BT.”

    Unfortunately it was still slow and patchy but probably to be expected in such a rural area. This also accounted for the very poor television reception. However it gave us plenty of time for reading our books.

The property

Eye 4 miles.

A charming, detached cottage resting on a 160-acre working arable and livestock farm, set in a rural location in the village of Stoke Ash.

The Bothy has been designed to offer a peaceful base for couples looking to get away to a beautiful part of East Anglia.

The large kitchen is ideal for rustling up a tasty dinner for your partner and getting together around the dining table, while the spacious sitting room has doors out to the lovely lawned garden.

There is one double bedroom with bedside tables and reading lamps, and the family bathroom offers a shower over the bath.

To the exterior, you have your very own private garden area in which to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining or soak up the sun with a refreshing beverage in hand.

Eye itself offers a variety of shops, pubs and eateries, while nearby Stowmarket and Diss provide yet more choice.

There are many museums in the area, as well as a golf course at Stowmarket, or slightly further afield lies the picturesque Suffolk coastline, while inland are the cycle trails and Go Ape!
