The space
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

WE WILL BE OPERATING AS ADVISED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THEIR SAFETY GUIDELINES

WE ALWAYS HAVE A 24 HOUR BREAK BETWEEN GUESTS.

THE PROPERTY IS PERFECT FOR A QUIET GET AWAY WITH BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY WALKS.

THE GARDEN AND HOUSE ARE LARGE ENOUGH NOT TO HAVE TO MOVE FROM DURING YOUR STAY.

WE WILL STILL BE DELIGHTED TO HOST YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

The house has 9 double bedrooms.

Two double bedrooms downstairs, one is suitable for a wheelchair user with wet room next door. The other is also suitable but not so spacious.

Lettings are for two nights min and three nights over special holidays such as Xmas, New Year and Easter but you can rent it for week or a month with great discounts.

The space is totally unique and beautiful, suitable for the larger family or several families .

Close to our pretty town of Bungay and 1.40 hours by train from London to Diss, trains also run to Halesworth & Beccles that are only 10 mins away from the Lodge. Norwich 30 mins and Southwold 30 mins.

Walberswick has dog friendly beaches and takes 30 mins with great pubs for the best ever fish and chips. We recommend The Bell

Always beautiful nearby for walks, winter or summer, and with good heating it is warm and toasty inside the Lodge.

Dogs are welcome but only downstairs.

NO DOGS ALLOWED UPSTAIRS AT ANY TIME

There is easy access to all of the house from the cottage end. The cottage can be let separately or the house but they join up with interconnecting doors inside.

The downstairs bedrooms have level access both with access to a wet room suitable for disabled guests or the more elderly.

There are two large kitchens with electric cookers, plus a Rayburn cooker, with ample seating and a piano for a little musical singalong!

There is an American fridge freezer in the large kitchen and a small fridge freezer in the small kitchen.

We have an outside games room with a pool table, darts board and table football. This is in the barn and is not heated.

The house has two entirely separate kitchen areas, dining rooms and sitting areas.

There is one terrace looking at the enclosed lawn and Castle ruins, a large garden table and chairs with level access into the drawing room.
There is another terrace looking out over the park this leads out from the large conservatory where you can sit up to twenty for long lunches enjoying the view of the park. Both peaceful and totally private.

Parkland is owned by us it has electric fencing for the horses that are turned out there. This is private and absolutely no access to our guests, please stay out. The garden is securely fenced to help with keeping young children and dogs in.

There are two neighbouring barn conversions one about 50 yds away and the other 75yds and the main Castle house is about 100yds all behind the huge castle walls so out of sight but not out of hearing.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE DOING PRIVATE B&B LETTINGS TOO

We can let the cottage end, or the house end, or the whole property which easily converts into one large house

*****
All the big supermarkets deliver but book in lots of time & please give them a realistic time slot and the correct post code as I am not happy meeting them or unloading your shopping

********

We have an American fridge freezer in the large kitchen and a small one in the cottage kitchen

There is a Rayburn in the large kitchen
Please do not touch any of the controls. This is a range cooker that does the heating as well as the hot water. You can cook on this and in the oven. You do not have to turn it off after use. It is warm and always on in the cold weather.

I’ve just counted six different entrances to the property so you can rest assured that there is enough room to keep your distance from each other if you need to!

THANK YOU FOR RESPECTING OUR HOUSE RULES

We have lovely countryside all round and beautiful beaches within easy reach so it's no wonder I'm a happy person!!
