The doll-house like qualities of this charming cottage are matched by beautifully finished interiors with quirky accents all considered down to the finest detail.
A beautifully restored four-bedroom Victorian cottage built into the wall surrounding the estate’s original flower and vegetable garden. Built around 1848 in the cottage orné (or decorated cottage) style by the Brooke family, the picturesque former head gardener’s cottage occupies an elevated position overlooking woods and hedgerows. The Suffolk White brick cottage features gothic round-headed ogee mouldings, barge boards and round-headed windows with tuck pointing beneath a slate roof. Inside, the large family kitchen opens up to a quirky sitting room with its unusual open fireplace inspired by the ‘Green Man’ from Suffolk mythology. Two of the three double bedrooms feature in-room freestanding roll-top baths (the third has an en suite shower room) and a unique en suite bunk room provides space for up to six children. The country kitchen has a large professional range cooker, butler sink and dishwasher as well as a zinc-covered dining table for meals enjoyed beneath a vast skylight and bespoke cabinetry. The original 30 feet deep well sits under the kitchen, and guests can marvel at the depth through toughened glass. All rooms have underfloor heating and dimmable lights. Outside, enjoy BBQs on the private terrace, explore the estate on Pashley bicycles or hold your own tournament on the nearby tennis court. Try your hand at paddle boarding or rowing on the serpentine lake, learn more about the nature that calls Wilderness home with our estate ecologist or practice your shot with world-class clay instructors. Wilderness Reserve is nestled in 5,000 acres across three river valleys in the county boasting some of the cleanest air in England, yet just a short drive from Suffolk’s celebrated heritage coast. Here, discover one of England’s finest piers at Southwold, enjoy famous fish & chips in Aldeburgh or make your own gin at the Adnams Brewery. For the adventurous, take to the waves in a rib from Southwold with Coastal Challenger, or visit Go Ape, Suffolk’s biggest tree top adventure.
