This elegant medieval manor house has 3 acres of walled gardens, and is located just off the A14, 3 miles from Stowmarket. An exceptionally well appointed, spacious, traditional family home, in the style of the village Manor. Nothing was too much trouble, I slept well and very much enjoyed the full tasty English breakfast, using all local ingredients and home cooked bread.
Located in Stowmarket in the Suffolk region, The School Room has a garden. It was cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The gardens are lovely. The host was very welcoming. The School Room is traditional and modern at the same time. The log burner was a treat to.cosy up by.
Located in Stowmarket in the Suffolk region, Charming Town Center Character Cottage With Parking features a garden. We loved the feel of the cottage and how warm it made us feel. The welcome gift made our day and the basket of postcards and information of the local area was a nice touch. We were really impressed
The hotel is 5 minutes from Stowmarket and 7 minutes from Needham Market. We preferred Needham Market as a country town as a bit more lively. Beautiful area and would recommend for a weekend away. We did some great walks and really enjoyed browsing some shops too. We went to Alder Call (I think it was called) nursury, just behind the high street. A lovely walk there past cottages and old bridge and had home made ice cream in the Cafe which was in the converted barn. Best ice cream ever!
I visit family in stowmarket, have always found it a warm, friendly town, quirky folk,surrounding areas beautiful, I'd avoid Ipswich which I'm not keen on at all, and go to Bury st Edmund's everytime, and felixstowe not very far away, Needham and the lake so pretty and relaxing, a lovely quaint old fashioned English village, with a great farm shop there too
Didn't see much of the town as we went for a party on the Sat evening returning home Sunday am after breakfast. Driving thorough in the cab it looked very nice and would have liked to have a wander round when we had more time.
Apart from Haughley House, there is very little to cheer about in Stowmarket, which is run down, saturated with housing, but close to the A14. There are only 2 restaurants in the town, Chequers, which serves tasty Chinese food and Prezzo the pizza chain which is poor value for money. Fortunately, when you stay at the house, you do not have to go through Stowmarket to travel away from the area and that is a big relief.
there is not a lot for visitors in the town itself. We were surprised by the lack of restaurants in the centre of town. Although our hotel was within easy walking distance we did not feel tempted to return in the evening. We visited Bury St Edmunds during our stay and found that a much better place to visit.
We were strongly recommended to visit the Museum of East Anglian Life, and we were far from disappointed. It really is a place not to be missed. It is excellent value for money in every way and for all ages.There is a plethora of exhibits of agricultural buildings, machinery and tools with easy-to-read fascinating information provided. In addition the catering facilities are first-rate. On a future visit to Stowmarket we would hope to see more of the town and the beautiful surrounding Suffolk countryside.
