Cottage
Lake View Cottage is a beautiful 4 star self contained rural holiday home. It was converted from our stables in 2010 and awarded 4 stars by the English Tourist Board. We have made many more improvements to the grounds since then and guests have said it is more like 5 star accommodation. The cottage sits within our grounds (KILN FARM) of 4.1/2 acres and includes a carp fishing lake, with summerhouse and jetty. We also have a 4 hole golf chipping green (or 5 hole over lake which is not for faint hearted)(clubs supplied). There are two games rooms one with pool table, table top football, small library and outdoor games. The other has table tennis and darts. We supply BBQ and lounge chairs. Walkway round grounds for dogs and walks from door. Plenty DVDs to keep children and adults am...Lake View Cottage is a beautiful 4 star self contained rural holiday home.

Walkway round grounds for dogs and walks from door. Plenty DVDs to keep children and adults amused. Sand bin for smokers outside lounge French windows. The accommodation, which is all on one level with a ramp and step entrance, has 1 double on-suite power shower room with sink and toilet. A twin bedroom with bathroom opposite. The lounge has a leather setee and very comfortable lounge chairs with French windows opening onto enclosed garden with view over small lake. The garden has table and chairs, also plenty seating areas around grounds. The kitchen has all the usual mod cons, ie dish washer, washing machine, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and all crockery, plus table and 4 chairs. Hair dryer supplied. There is a wide entrance hall with doors off to bedrooms, bathroom and lounge through to kitchen. So no walking through anyone's bedroom to get to bathroom. There is a large car park next to cottage, so never a problem parking. Travel cot and high chair can be supplied on request. We are situated in a quiet sleepy country village on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. Walks abound from the doorstep, so ideal for walkers or anyone with a well behaved dog. You can stay on the grounds and just relax and enjoy the wildlife, free range chickens (and eggs), ducks and ducklings, moor hens and much more (home made bread on request). We grow our own organic fruit and vegetables and make our own apple juice. Visit the Suffolk/Norfolk coastline. The famous Southwold about 40 mins drive as is Aldeburgh. Train from Diss (10 mins drive) to Norwich (about 17 mins). Visit Bury-St-Edmunds and loads of other places (places of interest book in cottage) Diss has 3 supermarkets, chemists, restaurants, coffee houses and the Corn Hall which shows films, theatre etc. and the famous Mere where you can sit and relax and feed the ducks, or have a glass of wine or coffee and look out onto it. The Railway Tavern pub is at the top of Mellis Road within walking distance, dogs welcome and food served daily. This is a taste of the good life.More

About the neighbourhood
This is a farming community so the only noise you will hear are those of the farmers. At the moment they are harvesting, taking in their crops of wheat, corn, rapeseed and beet, so you may encounter a tractor or a horse. There are a lot of horse riders around and keen cyclists apart of course from walkers. The area is flat so easy walking and there are local walking groups. If you are around in June come to our hog roast on the green, or one of the many other local events in Thrandeston and Mellis. We even have a Jazz festival in Mellis Church in September which is packed to the seams. We have Banham Car boot sale on Sunday mornings which is huge and of course Banham Zoo for the children. There is Bressingham Railway with Thomas the Tank Engine for the children just outside Diss. W...
