Set amongst 120 blissful acres of picture-perfect Suffolk countryside, Kingfishers at Cretingham Country Park has that fresh, unspoilt feeling of rural heaven.

This is the place to enjoy fresh-air-filled adventure, with epic walking trails, golf, cycling, kayaking and rowing all readily available on-site. You can enjoy private yoga, meditation and mindfulness sessions or why not try indulge in a full range of treatments which can be enjoyed in our lakeside treatment rooms or outside under the trees… and when you’re finally worn out, there’ll be a friendly lakeside café, a café bar , and a fully-stocked bar waiting!

Also boasting accommodation of all shapes and sizes, it’s The Nest that promises to tempt romantic couples the most.

An other-worldly retreat cleverly crafted under its very own ‘hill’, there’s a magical storybook sense to your surroundings; almost as though they’ve been plucked straight from an iconic fantasy tale.

Relax in the cosy lounge, snuggling up on the squishy sofa with a welcome glass of wine. Although there are dining options available on site, if you prefer gazing into each-other’s eyes over a private romantic supper, there’s a kitchen and a dining table, complete with countryside views.

You’ve always got the option of dining al fresco, too, getting up-close and personal with nature – followed by a stargazing soak in your private hot tub!

When the day is finally done, curl up in your cosy king sized bed, knowing that when morning rolls around, you get to greet that incredible sunrise with an al fresco coffee, to a joyous soundtrack of birdsong.

More information

Freshen up in your en-suite shower, and then it’s onto the important business of planning your day.

If you’re not staying on site, the good news is there’s plenty to see and do in the local area. Just four miles from the bustling town of Framlingham – the setting for Ed Sheeran’s smash-hit song, ‘Castle on the Hill’ – and 12 miles from coastal Aldeburgh, all you have to do is decide where to go first!

Visit nearby Southwold, only slightly further afield, to enjoy a traditional fish-and-chip supper, washed down with a brewery or distillery tour at the locally-famous Adnams… you could even arrange a gin-making class if you felt so inclined.

But if all that sounds a little too complicated or energetic, you’re free to remain on the dreamy Kingfishers site all holiday long, perhaps indulging in a gentle yoga or meditation session or a pampering treatment, until that spectacular sunset rolls around again.
