Nestling in the grounds of the owners' large Tudor farmhouse (as featured in the publication 'The Perfect English Farmhouse' by Ros Byam Shaw) this is a wonderful location to peacefully while away the hours. The Nook is approached by a long gravel driveway and there is private parking adjacent to the cottage. The Daily Telegraph Newspaper review of Packway Farm which included The Nool said it was a 'Suffolk Beauty whose stylish renovations achieved a perfect blend of old and new'. The Nook offers a stunning open plan living space. The kitchen is fitted with a Belfast sink, electric hob and oven, a fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, coffee machine (Tassimo T discs) and a washing machine. The wood burner brings a cosy traditional feeling to this characterful. A convenient starter basket of logs and kindling is supplied. The dining area has seating for two and there is a comfortable sofa and arm chair. There is a flat screen TV with Free Sat, DVD, and free Wi-Fi connection. The bathroom has a bath and hand held shower attachment. There is a table and chairs and BBQ. The owners welcome guests to share the rest of the five acre garden from which there is also direct access to bridleways and footpaths to enjoy the surrounding countryside. The Nook is set in the tiny hamlet of Chediston which is in the heart of the Suffolk countryside just 2 miles from the market town of Halesworth. Minsmere, Dunwich and North Warren Reserves are within easy reach, and the whole area is ideal for walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, golf and sailing. There is a secure bicycle store available to guests.Steeped in natural beauty the Heritage Coastal towns of Aldburgh and Southwold are just a 20 minute drive. Slightly closer is the world famous Snape Malting concert hall with its international musical offerings and in particular its annual festival in June. In addition to those mentioned above there are many pretty villages within a short drive. For example, Framlingham with its castle and Thorpness with its boating lake and 'house in the clouds'. Further, but still an easy drive, are Woodbridge with its Tide Mill, Sutton Hoo burial ground, Stoneham Barn crafts and birds of prey centre, and Beccles and the Norfolk Broads to name but a few.
