About Owner

In 2000 we purchased Hundon Grange and its various outbuildings after it came on the market for only the 2nd time in its 400 year history. Originally owned by Cambridge College it was in need of renovation and took us many years to restore. After completion we decided that it was just too lovely to keep to ourselves and the idea of converting the former Grain store and obtaining permission to have Yurts on site became a plan. We opened our doors in 2012 and have been simply delighted with the wonderful feed back we have received.

In 2013 we extended The Granary to accommodate up to 10 guests and in 2015 we have added a 3rd Yurt and cottage room and hot tub for Yurt guests too.

Why Owner chose Suffolk

From the first time we visited Suffolk we loved every minute of it. The slower pace of life and old fashioned values of the local people, the wonderful and interesting historical sites and places of interest with a mix of tea shops, antique fairs, old traditional pubs and restaurants give Suffolk a unique charm.

What makes this bungalow unique

Easily accessed from London. A peaceful and tranquil location for all to enjoy.We have the most amazing and very large natural pond. It is stocked with koi carp and freshwater fish. It holds an abundance of wild life and we have seen kingfishers, woodpeckers, dragonflies, otters, voles, rabbits, deer and much more. We have a permanent family of moorhens living on it. We also get visits from various birds including swallows, swifts and Canada geese and often have a flock of ducks land. As dusk falls bats come out of hiding and you can see them over the pond catching insects.

We have the most incredible sunsets - no two nights are ever the same. Pour yourself a glass of wine and see for yourself.

Outstanding - blown away!

  • 5 of 5

Last week I stayed at the Granary and yurts with a group of ladies on a hen weekend. Everyone was completely overwhelmed with the place which exceeded all our expectations. The grounds are stunning and the house is very well maintained and high spec and very thoughtfully equipped. The yurts were gorgeous and very cosy with the wood-burners and tea lights. We were so pleased we added the hot tub to our package and spent many hours in there. On Saturday we had a BBQ and Ottelenghi style salads from Handmade in Hundon Ltd who I would also highly recommend for great service and delicious food. I can't fault this place and can't wait to return...although I sort of want to keep it a secret too!

amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of girls have just came back from our break staying at Suffolk Retreats, We do not have a bad word at all to say about it, everything was as it was described, if not better, its a very spacious building, it was clean, fresh bedding and towels, great showers and baths! the jacuzzi bath was a highlight! everything in a kitchen you would need. The owner was very welcoming to us, and we have had a few people ask where this place is as they are interested in it. The games room was great fun, it would keep the men happy for hours!

we really can not fault this place at all, and would consider staying here again.

Better then expected. Thank again.

Natasha, kelly, Nina, Laura, Harriet, Tia, Becca, Aimee and Chelsea.

Nearest Town of Clare is approx 3 miles. Here you will find The Old Priory, Church, shops, tea rooms antique shops, restaurants, and circular walks. You can walk to the nearest Pub (1/2 mile) which has an extensive restaurant menu too. Local village shop and post office also nearby. Approx 30 minutes drive to the old town of Bury St Edmunds. Here you can visit the cathedral and see the wonderful Abbey Gardens, and Abbey ruins. Bury also has an abundance of shops, restaurants and cinema, and regular markets. If you are a race goer you are half an hour from Newmarket. Visit the Newmarket racecourse or famous horse museum. A day out to the university town of Cambridge is well worth the trip. Why not take a punt on the river Cam? The pretty town of Lavenham is less than 20 mins drive. It is a picturesque town, with old buildings, church and tea shops. Closer to home is Cavendish, with a wealth of antique shops and lots of traditional pubs and restaurants. So much to see and so much to do in the curious county of Suffolk.
