For a cosy, warm and homely self catering abode look no further than The Kiln. Sitting on the Suffolk/Norfolk Borders, this single level accommodation is just waiting to welcome couples to the rolling Suffolk countryside. 

About the Property: This comfortable cottage has all the ingredients that couples could need to have a peaceful and relaxing holiday in Suffolk. Dating back to the 1800's, The Kiln was once a vital part of the village life in Mendham, with examples of tiles being made on site visible on the walls. Recently converted, along with neighbouring holiday let The Golden Cross, The Kiln provides stress free accommodation for two people. The front door opens onto an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, with french doors looking out to the small, private patio to the front and the owner's garden in the distance (holidaymakers are welcome to make use of this). A door leads to the bedroom with King sized bed and en-suite shower room. 

Adults and pets alike will love this property and all that can be explored if you only step outside. 

Ideal for: Couples or friends wanting to escape the rush of life and relax in a countryside village. Mendham is just a short drive from the nearby town of Harleston, where trains can be caught to London Liverpool Street if required. 

Pets: 1 well behaved dog welcome at The Kiln. Owners are welcome to use the owners garden for exercising their pet, but are asked to keep them on a lead. 

Exploring: There is plenty to do within just a short walk or drive of The Kiln. Just across the road is access to footpaths leading around the connecting fields, great for dog walkers or hikers alike. We would certainly recommend packing a bicycle and seeing where the country lanes take you; there is plenty to explore and we can guarantee you're bound to find a good pub for a pit stop! For those wishing to visit the city of Norwich, a 40 minute drive by car will take you to the centre; with plenty of shops, a theatre, cinema and castle - there is certainly more than enough to keep you entertained for the day. If you dream of the sea, Southwold and its beach are just a 30 minute drive by car - we recommend fish and chips from the pier with lashings of ketchup; yummy! 

Eating and Drinking out: Whilst there are a small selection of eateries to choose from in the nearby town of Harleston, the closest pub to The Kiln is The Wortwell Bell. If you fancy a lighter bite, The Broken Egg Cafe on the outskirts of Harleston offers a great cafe menu; with an American Diner style menu being served on Friday evenings. 

Self Catering: Most big name supermarkets will deliver to The Kiln, but the closest supermarket is a Co-Op store in Harleston.
