1 Customer Review

  • "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, where you will find the Haughley Castle, built in the 11th century in a motte and bailey design; treat your loved one 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.

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 Museum of East Anglian Life, or take a scenic stroll along the banks of the water via the Gipping Valley River Path.

A short journey will bring you to Needham Market, home to Needham Lake Play Area And Walks, where you can cast your line and test your luck at a spot of course fishing, or take in your peaceful surroundings with a walk along the lakeside followed by a well-deserved ice cream at the on-site parlour.

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

Stowmarket 2.9 miles; Bury St Edmunds 13.5 miles; Ipswich 14.9 miles.

The quaint village of Haughley is nestled in the sought-after English county of Suffolk, a stone's throw away from the vibrant market town of Stowmarket. Steeped in history, the village was named in the Domesday Book, and was once home to neolithic, pagan, Iron Age, Roman and Saxon settlements. The streets of the pretty village are decorated with traditional thatched cottages as well as a delicious takeaway, local country pub and a well-stocked convenience store, providing everything to cater for your self-catering needs! The medieval Haughley Castle towers above the village, dating back to the 11th century and built in a striking motte and bailey design. Within easy reach is the town of Stowmarket, the largest town in Mid Suffolk, home to a host of amenities along with a range of fun-filled attractions including the Museum of East Anglian Life and the Gipping Valley River Path; a lovely spot for a scenic stroll. Further afield are the bustling towns of Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich, both full to the brim of things to see and do and well worth a visit. Explore the delights of Suffolk with a retreat to Haughley.
