Saddle up for a blissfully romantic break for two in a converted Victorian stable block, set in the pretty and picturesque grounds of a Suffolk farmhouse.
A Victorian stable block may not be the first setting you tend to picture when you think of a romantic holiday haven packed with design-led style. However, following a stay at The Workshop you may find it's the very first place that springs to mind!
Luxuriously spacious, The Workshop spectacularly combines the very best of 21st century design with all the traditional red-brick delights of the building's original architecture...resulting in a sumptuous sanctuary set in one acre of breathtakingly beautiful, wildflower-strewn countryside.
Styled with sleek contemporary minimalism in mind, with natural light and colours throughout, you'll feel as though you've stepped right into a boutique London loft apartment - that is, until you take a glance through the glass doors and view the friendly local wildlife and sparkling dew pond outside!
Discover intricate attention to detail throughout, with a stunning open-plan living space that features designer lighting, a French-designed spherical steel fireplace, and a chaise longue that's ideal for lounging in true style - cocktail in hand of course - as you gaze out onto the meadow.
The dining area is the perfect setting for romantic feasts, furnished with 1950s Danish-designed table and iconic ‘Series 7' chairs. Even if you're not a natural cook, you'll love preparing meals in the stylishly-equipped kitchen with its built-in Smeg cooker and white stone surfaces throughout.
Follow the gently curving white wall to the bedroom, and discover the sumptuous setting for endless lazy lie-ins, with fresh meadow views through double-aspect windows. The king sized bed, dressed in crisp 100% cotton sheets and duvet, is ideal for snuggling, while an iPod docking station allows you to set the perfect mood.
The beautiful bathroom is warmly welcoming, featuring a large double-ended bath and luxurious circular shower cubicle...washing the day away simply doesn't get more decadent than this!
Perfectly built for cosy conversations under the sun and the stars, the generous oak decking is the scenic platform for you to enjoy everything the countryside has to offer throughout the year, with buttercups, sheep and moorhens all frequent visitors.
Of course, this is seriously stylish and contemporary living that comes fully equipped with Wi-Fi and a large flatscreen TV with DVD player...meaning you may decide you simply can't tear yourselves away for the duration of your stay!
Should you decide to venture out however, from your doorstep you'll easily discover the delights of the heritage Suffolk coastline (with plenty of fish and chip stops on the way), together with a wealth of East Suffolk villages and market towns just waiting to be explored. Framlingham is a quintessentially British market town that's delightful to visit, while antique lovers will adore Yoxford.
So for a romantic holiday for two that's infused with chic comfort, head to The Workshop...where you'll discover absolutely no work, but plenty of seriously stylish rest and play!
