Gardens Edge Suffolk

Garden's Edge East of England

Good times within these walls…THE ULTIMATE SUPER-LUXE HIDEAWAY

This is a wonderful party house on a beautiful country estate in Suffolk, set on one side of a walled garden. And it has been designed with loving care. The grand central hall is a great place for a big gathering, and it exudes rustic charm with its vaulted ceilings and exposed beams and bookended by French limestone fireplaces. The sunroom opens out into the garden itself and is just perfect for a relaxing afternoon at any time of the year. There are eight large bedrooms plus, for larger groups, there’s an adjacent property, Garden’s Cottage (at additional cost), with three double bedrooms and a room with six bunks. There is something rather special and magical about living in a walled garden property.

Guest Reviews

What a find! I wanted somewhere really special for my 50th birthday, and boy did I find that! Garden's Edge was the perfect place to celebrate - we arranged a lovely casual BBQ on the Friday night, and then a really special meal on the Saturday to mark my old age! I had so many comments over the weekend about how fantastic the house was. Thank you!
