Enjoying a private indoor
heated swimming-pool separately housed in its own building, this spacious, single-storey holiday property offers
the perfect rural retreat whatever the time of year. The purpose-built swimming-pool building has underfloor heating all year
round and includes two changing rooms with showers, separate W.C. and a large sitting area for spectators. Lark Rise sits
in three-quarters of an acre of colourful gardens, with apple and plum orchard, and is surrounded by open countryside. It
lies less than 2 miles from the village shop and inn, and 3 miles from the ancient market town of Stowmarket, which offers
a leisure centre, children’s indoor play area, golf course and many amenities.
The location is ideal for day trips to the coast or the Norfolk Broads, as well as racing at Newmarket. There are many historic buildings within easy reach, including Ickworth House Park and Gardens (NT), Euston Hall, Framlingham Castle, Eye Castle, Wingfield Old College and many more. For excellent country walks, Gipping Valley and Thornham Estate have 12 miles of footpaths, while at Suffolk Water Park and Needham Lake there are water sports available. The area also offers plenty for animal lovers, with British birds of prey at Stonham Barns, the Otter Sanctuary at Bungay, and the Suffolk Wildlife Park all within easy reach. Nearby is the busy port of Ipswich, which boasts several medieval churches and some fine 16th-century buildings. The Museum and Art Gallery houses replicas of the famous Sutton Hoo archaeological finds, and Christchurch Mansion, set in a large park, is a lively domestic museum with furniture, doll’s houses and children’s toys, as well as a fine art collection.
