The Round House
A sumptuously quirky, elegantly restored round house in an historic Suffolk village, perfect for a relaxing family holiday.
Sleeping up to six guests in idyllic comfort, The Round House is exactly that - a lovingly restored circular home that will welcome you with open arms.
Boasting a huge garden and a ground-floor bedroom, this is a setting that's sure to suit just about everybody, making it the ideal family escape. Better still, your location is the historic, picture-perfect Suffolk village of Easton, which is just 20 minutes away from the coast.
You'll make a grand entrance as you arrive, through the five-bar gate and onto the gravel drive (there's space for four cars). The gorgeous, solid oak front door sets the sophisticated scene - this is a luxurious break to savour.
There's plenty of light-and-bright space inside, set off with soft-toned décor, oak flooring, and cosy rugs. The living room is a perfect catch-up spot, with its gently curved walls, hand-made sash windows...and plenty of irresistibly squishy seating.
(If you get tired of chatting to your loved ones, simply switch on the Smart TV instead, or make your selection from the packed bookshelf!)
The kitchen and dining room are equipped with everything you need to break bread and drink wine with the whole family, including a breakfast bar, a huge American-style fridge-freezer, and that all-important dishwasher.
Head to the conservatory for after-dinner drinks; a sumptuous space that features a warming stove, cosy seating, and of course, wonderful views of the garden and the grazing cattle beyond. Throw open the doors on warmer evenings to bring the outside, inside!
There's a convenient ground floor kingsize bedroom and a rainfall shower-equipped bathroom - ideal for those who can't manage (or who can't be bothered with!) stairs. Head for the first floor to discover two more stylish kingsize bedrooms (one can be made into a twin if preferred), and a shared Jack and Jill shower room with toasty heated towel rails.
On sunny days, you'll want to while away some time relaxing in the garden...and there's plenty of wildlife to spot, too - keep an eye out for the resident barn owl.
Meanwhile, the west-facing patio, with its large oak table and chairs, is perfect for watching the sunset over an al-fresco supper.
Wander into the village if you fancy a change of scene during the day. Home to a farming museum and rare-breed animals, it's a great opportunity to educate the kids about rural life.
Framlingham is close by too, a town made famous by its former celebrity resident, singer Ed Sheeran (and his song, ‘Castle on the Hill'!)
On the other hand, it's could be that you fall so in love with the style and comfort on offer at The Round House, that you decide not to leave...all holiday long.
