Temptingly close to the historic market town of Framlingham (whose 12th century castle inspired Ed Sheeran’s hit song, Castle on the Hill), The Silos Framlingham is a true wow-factor retreat in rural Suffolk.

Designed and built by the award-winning artist John Christie, the two interconnected silos are filled with visual delights, including original artwork and ceramics by renowned creators including Sonia Delauney and William Kentridge.

There’s also plenty of cosy attention to detail: the ‘living’ silo boasts a squishy two-seater sofa and a wood-burning stove that sets the perfect scene for intimate chats over a bottle of wine.  The well-equipped kitchen means you can easily whip up a romantic feast to be savoured at the dining table, positioned right by a scenery-showcasing window.

Wander along the bespoke hallway when it’s time to turn in, where the ‘sleeping’ silo is ready to welcome you with a downy kingsize bed.  There’s an en-suite shower room to freshen up in, too.

Linger over morning coffee out in the private garden, with views that lead your gaze across miles of lush greenery.  

Should you decide to explore, you’ve got plenty of options.  Wander into Framlingham and while away some time browsing the independent shops – there are some fantastic cafés and restaurants too.  Or jump in the car and drive to nearby Aldeburgh, a bustling seaside town that’s well worth a visit.
