The Bailiffs House Hero2

The Bailiff's House East of England

A quaint cottage with fun features

At first glance, The Bailiff's House is a tranquil Suffolk hideaway; a gabled country property with a beautiful cottage garden. Step inside, and a hidden personality emerges. This quaint cottage has a fabulous games room, complete with table tennis and table football. And then there’s the Gin Palace, a one-room cottage in the garden, complete with gin bar, perfect for a pre-dinner drink. Add the traditional Finnish sauna, swimming pool (only available for use until 2pm daily) and tennis courts (only available for use until 2pm daily) and you have a great place for good times with friends and family.

Unwind after a day exploring the countryside in the sanctuary of the vaulted sitting room with wood-burning stove, the cosy library, or the Aga-warmed kitchen. Upstairs, versatile rooms have beds that convert from kings and super-kings into singles. Outside, catch the sun in one of the many secluded seating areas and enjoy the views. A walk across private farmland gets you to the local gastropub, while the coastal villages of Orford and Aldeburgh are a short drive away. Gather your favourite people and head to The Bailiff’s House to take a break, have some fun, and explore this picturesque location.

Guest Reviews

We recently stayed at The Bailiff's House as a family week away. The house is beautiful, it's spacious yet cosy and has everything you need for chilling out and lots to do if you're 'Do'ers'. The location is glorious surrounded by open countryside and walks and a pub close by to walk to. Although situated out of the hustle and bustle, we were only a short drive from the centre of town with leisure activities no more than 15/20mins away. The hosts live close and were very helpful with any questions we had. Can highly recommend.

The Bailiff's House was superb. Totally perfect for our 25th wedding anniversary celebrations with 8 of our friends. The size was totally suitable. We had a catered dinner in the vaulted ceiling dining/living room, and then danced the night away. The sauna and hot tub helped us recover the following day. The house was spotlessly clean and our host had made a delicious chocolate cake for us, the log burner was roaring making sure we had a lovely warm arrival.
