The House

Price Upon Request

The gorgeous Cart Shed has been reinvented using the best of modern design to highlight the best of this antique building. Open-plan living spaces over heated brick floors with shuttered Crittal glass doors that slide open characterise the main part of the building with deep sofas, comfy throws and an iconic Ergo Focus wood burner for chilly evenings. The kitchen is a cook’s delight with a professional range, large island and butler sink and there’s a dining table for eight. The four en suite bedrooms feature king-size Hypnos beds, quirky furnishings and splendid views across the estate. Two of the bedrooms feature enormous in-room freestanding roll-top baths, whilst the others have luxuriously-appointed shower rooms with endless piping-hot water and fluffy towels. Outside, enjoy BBQs on the private terrace, explore the estate on Pashley bicycles or hold your own tournament on the nearby tennis court. Swim in the estate pool, try your hand at paddle boarding or rowing on the serpentine lake, learn more about the nature that calls Wilderness Reserve 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.
