Ipswich, Suffolk

Perfect pre-wedding retreat!

Ipswich Farm House, comprising two seamlessly connected but beautifully different properties, will draw you into rural Suffolk life from the moment you arrive. Overlooking the River Deben and in a fantastic setting for long country walks, these properties vaunt a stunning combination of both contemporary and rustic décor throughout, from exposed oak beams, old brick fireplaces and a cosy crackling log burner, to modern yet classically designed bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen which provide the right balance for all tastes. Just minutes from the Suffolk coast and only a two-hour drive from London, Ipswich Farm House will lend the perfect pre-wedding retreat.


Property Information

Let Ipswich Farm House invite you with spacious gardens, roaring log fires, deep comfortable sofas and superbly designed bedrooms and bathrooms which will give you a slice of much needed luxury for your hen party. If you have a larger group, you can book both the House and Cottage which are situated within the same grounds and these sleep up to eighteen guests combined, allowing you to hold a stunning celebration without leaving anyone amiss. Create memories in the spacious patio and garden areas where you can fire up the barbeque on a warm day next to the open pond.

You may also hire the use of a private hot tub to make your stay extra special, and you can take the party outdoors; while the hot tub bubbles away, allow yourself to relax and enjoy a glass of wine with your girls. After long brisk country walks or a trip to the seaside nearby, sink into your luxurious bed after a hot shower. Wake up to an array of invigorating spa treatments provided by our beauticians, and then rejuvenate with a delicious and delectable afternoon tea. Ipswich Farm House gives you the most indulgent fusion of bucolic fixtures and current comforts, just waiting for you to appreciate.


Hot Tub & Living Spaces

Enter the Cottage through the entrance hall, and follow through to the open plan living room which seats up to six guests. Curl up and enjoy a film in front of the flat-screen TV or play your favourite music with Blu-Ray, DVD and an iPod docking station to choose from. The living space is open plan with beautiful exposed beams and spotlights. You will find a well-equipped kitchen with all you need to whip up your favourite meals and treats, and this boasts a large central island for preparation or just a morning catch up over a freshly brewed coffee. In the dining room, you can enjoy a three-course meal prepared and cooked by a private chef in front of the crackling log burner in the evening.

In the House, the layout has been closely mirrored, with an entrance hall, open plan living space with another log burning stove for those cool evenings post-walk, and a beautifully appointed kitchen. The dining room table seats up to eight guests. Large gardens surround the property and you can enjoy al-fresco dining from the barbeque on the patio beside the open pond. There is ample off-road parking for up to three cars, and additional overflow parking can be utilised if you wish. The hot tub can be hired for up to three days or up to seven, depending on the length of your stay. Wi-fi and oil central heating can also be used throughout the properties. Enjoy a well-deserved pamper retreat at Ipswich Farm House before your wedding day, a trip to remember!
