Curlew Cottage

Barn -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
This grade 2 listed barn has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and has been awarded a 4 star rating with a gold award from visit England. It is situated in a large enclosed and landscaped courtyard garden which has access to a well equipped games room, surrounded by Suffolk Wildlife Trust's Lackford Lakes Nature reserve which is a birdwatchers paradise. Wildlife is all around, many migratory birds come to Lackford Lakes and from here you can enjoy the sound of owls, nightingales, turtle doves, Canada geese and deer. Here you can really get away from it all yet the beautiful historic town of Bury St Edmunds is only 5 miles away and the racing town of Newmarket is 12 miles away. Ely, Cambridge, Norwich, the suffolk coast and Norfolk coasts are all easily within reach.
