Combine the former estate’s stables, the four bedroom Clockhouse, with its clock tower and Georgian proportions with the Barn which interconnects discreetly to create a seven bedroom escape perfect for families with children and larger groups.
There is underfloor heating throughout the accommodation, which is all arranged on one floor. The large kitchen & breakfast room has doors opening onto the private courtyard. From the dining room, double doors open to the drawing room with its kilim-covered sofas, large open fireplace and views to ancient oaks.
Step through an interconnecting door into the Barn, a 17th century Suffolk ‘long barn’ nestled in the hamlet within the estate’s Arcadian pleasure grounds. There’s a large open-plan kitchen & dining room with professional range, Art & Crafts furniture and doors opening up onto a private terrace. Think toasty underfloor heated flag stones, Nespresso coffee, teapigs teas and vaulted ceilings. The sun room opens to the master suite with its four-poster, eclectic furnishings and wet room with freestanding roll-top bath and powerful shower. Two further en suite bedrooms are found along a beamed corridor and both feature king-size Hypnos beds. Upstairs, the vaulted sitting room with its cosy armchairs and day beds (which can create extra space for two guests) has views across the parkland to ancient oaks plus its own adjacent wet room.
Outside, enjoy BBQs in the private courtyard or terrace, explore the estate on Pashley bicycles or hold your own tournament on the nearby tennis court open year-round. 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 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. In the beautiful fir trees of Thetford Forest discover your inner jungle explorer by climbing rope ladders, swinging through the trees and hurtling down zip wires.
