Stoke Cartlodge

1 Bedroom Cottage in Suffolk

Stoke Cartlodge is a detached 17th-century stable and cart lodge, recently renovated to an exceptional and luxurious standard. Discreetly nestled away in the centre of one of Suffolk’s finest villages, the cottage is equipped with high-end modern conveniences, retaining its appealing historic character thanks to the original features. Generously proportioned throughout, the cottage features a log burning stove, well equipped open plan reception room and kitchen with French windows opening on to a private West facing terrace, and large lawned garden beyond. Being just a stone’s throw away from two of the area’s best pubs, and with easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside, it is perfect for an immersed Suffolk getaway.
