Description

1 John O’ Groat Cottages is a cottage centred in its own forest haven. Located in the heart of The King’s Forest just north of Bury St Edmunds, this pretty, carefully restored cottage, one of a pair of former estate workers’ homes, offers its guests a location like no other. Here you are completely surrounded by natural open space, and mature woodland trees. Peace and tranquility are the order of the day. With its natural surroundings comes a wealth of wildlife on your doorstep including some more unusual visitors - look out for the Red Deer which roam this part of the forest and on summer nights you may hear the call of the rare Nightjar - and the night sky here is something to behold!

The cottage itself is well furnished throughout and offers a cosy and comfortable holiday home perfect for families or couples looking to switch off and truly get away from it all, or as a base to explore historic Suffolk or the activities of Thetford Forest Park and more . The fully-equipped kitchen makes meal times a breeze and the traditional sitting room with its open fire creates a calm and cosy atmosphere for you to enjoy. On the first floor there are three bedrooms offering versatility to cater for up to five guests. Outside there is a huge two acres of garden to explore, the perfect space for garden games or simply for just soaking up the fresh air and the commanding views over the forest.

Venturing outdoors you have plenty of areas of interest to explore close by to 1 John O’ Groat Cottages. You’ll find a bus stop within 1.5 miles which takes you to Bury St Edmunds - Suffolk’s “Jewel in the Crown” - and for lovers of Suffolk’s history a 15 minute drive will take you to the West Stow Country Park sited on the ancient Icknield Way, boasting a recreated Anglo Saxon Village and close to the Lackford Lakes Wildfowl Reserve. For those seeking adventure of a different kind, the attractions of Thetford Forest Park, the Elvedon Estate and go-karting at Red Lodge are all within easy reach. Shop: 3.6 miles Pub: 3.6 miles.
