    Property description
    Bury St Edmunds
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    The Forge, Flempton is located in the Lark Valley, situated very close to Thetford Forest (within easy walking distance) superb for walks, hiking and cycling. The West Stow Anglo Saxon Village is a 10 minute walk or 5 minute drive away, as is the beautiful Fullers Mill Garden.

    The Forge has just about everything you could need, the only thing you need to bring is your food and drink. The kitchen is fully fitted with an array of cooking tools should you want to stay in. The garden is very quiet with wooden steamers where you can put your feet up and enjoy the sunshine and in the evening you can make use of the gas BBQ and listen to the bird song.

    Of course, if you would rather see a little more action, then a 10 minute drive gets you to the centre of the historic city of Bury St Edmunds,...

If you are a couple looking for a short break in Suffolk you would be hard pushed to find better. The Forge still retains all it's old world charm, yet has been fitted out to make a very comfortable stay. A modern kitchen with new equipment, central heating, (not that we needed that), and Wi-Fi. Also very comfortable bed which...

Lovely spot, beautiful property. Owner next door and could not do enough for us. Many thoughtful small touches that added such pleasure. Would not hesitate in recommending this property for a quiet stay, but with lots going on in nearby Bury St Edmunds if you wanted to venture out from under the duvet! more

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review. The property does have that certain "je ne se qua". Visitors do seem to love the cozy nature of the property and you are quite right, there are some fantastic places to visit around Bury St Edmunds and indeed this part of Suffolk generally! more
