Large historic house sleeping 26 for celebrations and long weekends with family and friends in Ipswich

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Old Neptune Inn, Ipswich, Suffolk, sleeps 26 in 13 bedrooms.

The Old Neptune offers a spectacular setting for a special event such as a birthday celebration, anniversary, family get together, wedding, school reunion or company event.

Steeped in history and painstakingly restored over recent times, the interior decor has been stylishly updated to complement the historic architecture. The house features superb entertaining space and a beautiful Italianate courtyard within yards of the thriving Ipswich Marina, just over an hour from M25.

The Old Neptune feels very much like a country house but is actually in the centre of a town. In many ways, this offers the best of both worlds. Once inside you feel as if you have escaped modern life and been transported to a different age with total privacy and luxury, and many guests never actually leave (during their stay obviously). However, step outside the door and the paved walkways and historic architecture of the town centre are within easy walking distance with supermarkets, shops, restaurants, takeaways and places to keep the children entertained.

The biggest attraction of the location is that The Old Neptune is in the heart of the picturesque Marina in Ipswich, where luxury yachts and power cruisers berth and the excellent bars and restaurants give it a ‘St Katherine’s Dock’ type feel. In 2001 Haven Marina received the Yacht Harbour Association’s Five Gold Anchor rating – the highest possible accolade for a marina. It is a lovely place to take a walk and depending on the time of day you could pop into the café for breakfast, have a drink at the Vodka bar or dine out at one of the highly recommended restaurants and bistros. There are swans for the children to feed, and river cruises depart directly from the Marina.

Suffolk is a beautiful county, with glorious beaches and pretty villages. Alternatively, London is readily accessible, by road or train.
