Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Earls Hall, Suffolk, East Anglia, sleeps 12-16 in 6 bedrooms.
Regularly listed in the Times newspaper's top 10 big houses for hire, including in 2017, Earls Hall is a 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom house in West Suffolk which can accommodate a group of up to 20 people. The house offers relaxation and good cooking facilities, and is a perfect place for a quiet country weekend in a multi-generation group, or for a family celebration. Please note that there are neighbouring properties, so Earls Hall is not suitable as a big party venue, and please keep noise to a respectable level.
The house has a certain dignity, dating back to the 17th century, and offers a warm and relaxed welcome to its guests. Bygone grandeur vies with the seventies style of some of the furnishings and wallpapers, which have survived the passing decades, adding humour and humanity to the house. This is a much loved, charismatic family home, offering the opportunity to get together with family or friends in a peaceful rural setting.
Earls Hall is set in 4 acres of beautifully kept organic gardens, with a stream, vegetable garden and orchard, of which guests are welcome to pick the produce. The garden and our adjoining fields are pesticide-free so the wildlife is abundant. There are good walks from the house.
In the bounds of the village of Cockfield in the heart of Suffolk, with only the former farmhouse and a couple of converted residential barns on the other side of the road, Earls Hall enjoys rural tranquility and dark skies at night. Lavenham, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, and Long Melford are all within easy reach by the hourly bus.
There is a post office in the village, offering fresh bread, fruit and veg and saucy greetings cards, or a good range of shops in Lavenham, including an excellent baker, a good country grocer with a cheese counter, a butcher and a late opening Co-op. The Three Horseshoes with pub food is a seven minute walk away.
Earls Hall is within a 7 minute walk of an hourly bus service, or by car, 15 minutes from Bury St Edmunds, 20 minutes from Sudbury and 40 minutes from Stansted Airport. It's only 1.5 hours drive to London.
