Lake View Cottage overlooking carp lake

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Eye, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Lake View Cottage is a beautiful 4 star self contained rural holiday home. It was converted from our stables in 2010 and awarded 4 stars by the English Tourist Board. We have made many more improvements to the grounds since then and guests have said it is more like 5 star accommodation. The cottage sits within our grounds of 4.1/2 acres and includes a carp fishing lake, with summerhouse and jetty. We also have a 4 hole golf chipping green (or 5 hole over lake which is not for faint hearted)(clubs supplied). There are two games rooms one with pool table, table top football, small library and outdoor games. The other has table tennis and darts. We supply BBQ and lounge chairs. Walkway round grounds for dogs and walks from door. Plenty DVDs to keep children and adults amused. Sand bin for smokers outside lounge French windows.

We spent a lovely couple of days at this peaceful, comfy accommodation. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. The welcome from Jean (including the bread, eggs and dog treats) was warm and genuine. There is plenty to do and the enclosed garden within the...More

About the neighbourhood
This is a farming community so the only noise you will hear are those of the farmers. At the moment they are harvesting, taking in their crops of wheat, corn, rapeseed and beet, so you may encounter a tractor or a horse. There are a lot of horse riders around and keen cyclists apart of course from walkers. The area is flat so easy walking and there are local walking groups.

If you are around in June come to our hog roast on the green, or one of the many other local events in Thrandeston and Mellis. We even have a Jazz festival in Mellis Church in September which is packed to the seams.

We have Banham Car boot sale on Sunday mornings which is huge and of course Banham Zoo for the children. There is Bressingham Railway with Thomas the Tank Engine for the children just outside Diss. W...

If coming from the A143 take the turnoff for Yaxley/Mellis which will come up on reaching Wortham (at Wortham Tea Rooms and PO/Store). Follow this road for a couple of miles till you cross over the railway crossing and pass the Railway Tavern Public House. The next left is singposted Thrandeston. Take this road (Mellis Rod) and we are about a mile down the road on the left hand side, a pink house, red tiled roof, no neighbours.

If coming from the A140 take the Yaxley turnoff. On passing the Cherry Tree Public House and PO/Store follow this road round and you will pass the school. Next right is signposted Thrandeston.
