The Cider House │ Chapel Barn Estate │ Suffolk

Traditional thatched suffolk cottage. A six-bedroom, traditional Suffolk cottage, The Cider House, one of our new spa houses, is full of luxurious features. Freestanding copper baths, a heated swimming pool and deep-filled sofas set a tone of relaxation, indulgence and country living.

Being a little further out brings guests a little closer together
Sunken amongst the wild flower apple orchard, this is a place steeped in rural history. The building has been authentically crafted using traditional Suffolk methods, with an intricate brickwork chimney, thatched roof and thick limecrete walls filling the space between ancient stripped oak beams. There’s every modern luxury too. Underfloor heating, a roaring open fire and freestanding copper baths in every en suite bedroom keep things cosy, while the outdoor heated pool, hot tub, treatment room, sauna and steam room sustain the chilled-out vibe. A chunky rustic kitchen, heated dining area with a roaring fireplace and an entire corner of sliding glass doors helps connect inside and out and everyone with each other.
