    “The Bullpen is fine but the road to it is dreadful.”

    Pot holes along most of it. Ideal for walkers quite far from facilities.

The Bothy & The Bull Pen

Eye 4 miles. A pair of wonderfully converted farm buildings, resting within the Suffolk countryside, on the outskirts of the town of Eye. Tucked away on a 160-acre piece of land, The Bothy and the The Bull Pen have been designed to offer a peaceful friends and family gathering to this part of beautiful East Anglia. Each cottage offers a warm welcome and are well-equipped for a weeklong break with loved ones. Look forward to spending time within the spacious sitting room or prepare a delicious home-cooked meal within the kitchen areas, each housing all the necessities to fulfil your culinary needs. To the outside, each cottage benefits from a private garden area, where you will be able to gather during the summer months to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining or soak up the sun with a refreshing beverage in hand. If you feel like cooking one evening, venture to the small town of Eye, where you are certain to find a selection of shops, pubs and eateries to suit all tastes and requirements. To keep you busy whilst staying here, a short drive will bring you to the breathtaking Suffolk coastline, where you can soak up the sun at the beaches of Kessingland and Aldeburgh, whilst Dunwich houses a RSPB site for wildlife watching. Alternatively, spend an afternoon at the city of Norwich where you will be delighted to find further amenities and attractions including the Norman castle and the 11th century cathedral. The Bothy and Bull Pen are a superb base for a relaxing holiday with family and friends.
