About this property

Explore the Wilderness Estate with 18 unique properties, each boasting distinct features and character. Set within this 5,000-acre estate with rolling parklands, woodlands, lakes, and landscaped gardens, The Cider House is a traditional Suffolk pink thatched cottage. So named because of the remnants of a 15th century apple orchard nearby. Sleeping up to 12 guests, the property showcases free standing copper baths and underfloor heating. The Cider House also has its own terrace featuring a private pool, sauna, steam room, private treatment room, outdoor fire and hot tub.

Tucked away amidst the picturesque wildflower apple orchard, this retreat not only embraces the rich tapestry of rural history but also extends a warm welcome to furry companions. The authentic craftsmanship of the structure, echoing traditional Suffolk construction, weaves a captivating narrative with its intricate brickwork chimney, thatched roof, and limecrete walls melding gracefully with ancient stripped oak beams. Within this historical haven, the six en suite bedrooms, each graced with freestanding copper baths, offer a seamless blend of heritage charm and modern comfort, featuring underfloor heating and a comforting open fire.

While the chunky rustic kitchen and heated dining area, anchored by a roaring fireplace, beckon guests indoors, the outdoors holds its own allure. Sliding glass doors effortlessly connect the interiors to a verdant landscape where an inviting heated pool, hot tub, sauna, and steam room beckon, creating a serene atmosphere for relaxation. This 2454-square-foot haven provides an ideal retreat for up to 12 guests, allowing them to unwind amidst the perfect union of history and luxury.

Beyond the charming interiors and lush surroundings, this estate recognizes the importance of including four-legged family members in the getaway experience. The retreat is not only pet-friendly but also features amenities like a barbecue, ensuring that both human and canine guests can revel in the idyllic escape. From exploring the grounds to cozying up by the fireplace, this retreat promises an inclusive experience, where the joy of tradition and luxury extends to all members of the family, including those with wagging tails.
