  • "The property was not available for my last trip to the area so I had to stay somewhere else."

    The result was that I think I am better postponing my visits than going elsewhere. This time the guests were my Grandson and Grandaughter who also loved it as much as I do. I cannot recommend it enough.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback John. It is really appreciated. Property Owner

  • "This has to be the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in."

    It is absolutely beautiful! Everything you need is there and it is all thoughtfully and tastefully arranged. It just felt like home ftom home. The garden is lovely too. Clearly well maintained with lovely garden furniture. The conservatory is also a big bonus with 2 very large and comfy cane rocking chairs! Linda left us a lovely welcome pack of wine, cookies, enormous scones, butter, milk and savoury snacks. How amazing! Then we found that there was tea, coffee and sugar in the canisters too! The kitchen is spotless with a wide range of cooking equipment. The bathrooms were absolutely spotless too with good quality towels and complementary soap and shampoo. Plus plenty of extra loo roll and cleaning stuff in lovely baskets. I could go on and on about this place it was so impressive! We will be definitely book it again and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    Thank you so much, Sue, for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovey week, the house had everything we needed (and more)."

    It was lovely to sit in the conservatory when we got back from our days out, looking out on the beautiful well kept garden. If it was warmer, the garden would be lovely to sit out and perhaps use the bbq etc. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated and the owners were very helpful.

  • "A very comfortable property with a lovely garden at the back."

    Well equipped and the owner was very helpful. Just right for us as a base to explore Suffolk and visit family. We would definitely book again if we're coming back to the area.

    Thank you very much. Property Owner

  • "Extremely comfortable and very well equipped house, very enjoyable stay."

    The only very minor criticism would be to say the mattress on the bed seemed a little firm.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I take your point about the mattress, although as it is a very new medium support one, it may soften a little in time. Property Owner

The property

Haughley 1.8 miles.

Nestled in the quaint village of Old Newton, a stone's throw away from the historic village of Haughley, rests this charming two-bedroom holiday cottage, 1 The Gardens.

Boasting a homely and traditional interior and set within easy reach of both the coast and country of East Anglia, 1 The Gardens makes for a lovely base for a romantic retreat for two.

Park up in the handy car park nestled at the rear of the property before making your way through the well-kept front garden and into your home-from-home for the duration of your stay.

Kick off your shoes and make use of the storage space tucked away under the stairs to house your belongings before venturing through to the cosy living/dining room to put your feet up and enjoy a moment of peace in front of the television following an action-packed day.

Utilise the modern amenities provided in the nearby kitchen/diner to prepare a romantic meal for two, and choose to gather together at the intimate dining table to recount the days adventures, or serve up the fruits of your labour in the open-plan living/dining room to indulge with the background noise of your favourite show on the television.

Carry the conversation outdoors and soak in the peaceful setting of your private patio garden, toasting your favourite tipple enveloped by the colourful and well-maintained plants.

As the evening draws to a close, prepare for bed with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the family bathroom, or opt for a refreshing rinse with a shower in the en-suite adjoining the sumptuous double bedroom.

Escape the excitement with an intimate retreat to the snug single bedroom, or snuggle up under the covers in the double bedroom.

In the morning, enjoy a leisurely wake-up before heading downstairs to kick-start your day with a steaming cup of coffee and a sumptuous spot amongst the natural lighting that floods the delightful sun room.

Head off on foot and take the short stroll into the heart of Old Newton for a kick about at the Old Newton Playing Fields; a lovely spot to indulge in a picnic, or if you time it right, catch a spot of live entertainment or a fun-filled event at the Old Newton Sports & Social Club.

Venture further afield and explore the nearby village of Haughley, treat your loved ones and indulge in a bite to eat at The Kings Arms or, if you'd prefer, head to the local convenience store to pick up some ingredients to prepare from the comfort of your holiday home,in Haughley you will also find the Haughley Castle, built in the 11th century in a motte and bailey design.

The bustling market town of Stowmarket is within easy reach, boasting a fabulous selection of amenities including shopping opportunities and a range of eateries to suit all tastes and budgets; keep entertained with a visit to the Food Museum, or take a scenic stroll along the banks of the water via the Gipping Valley River Path.

With all of this and more, treat your significant other to a memorable stay at 1 The Gardens.
