About the property

A luxury 2 bedroom apartment in a delightful Manor House in the Suffolk countryside. Ideal for couples and business travellers looking for a comfortable base with easy access to Cambridge, Ely, Bury St. Edmunds, Newmarket - and still only 1.5 hours from central London.

The Manor is an exclusive retreat set in 15 acres of park-like grounds. It has been divided into 10 luxury apartments - all with a high level of quality finishes.

We live in Australia and use the apartment on return visits to the UK.

We only accept bookings for a minimum 3 week stay and don't allow bookings for families with young children, sorry!

About Kim

We live in Australia and use the apartment as a base for trips back to the UK. My husband grew up in Norfolk and our son is currently at his old school in Suffolk so we like to get over there at least once a year if we can!

Kim purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Kim chose Bury St Edmunds

We have stayed in a lot of cottages in the area but fell in love with this apartment when we saw it as it has such a spacious, quality feel about it. All the rooms are very well proportioned, it is beautifully finished throughout and makes a really comfortable base for the three of us. It's very central to Bury, Newmarket, Cambridge, Ely - and still an easy drive up to Norfolk or down to London.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is beautiful. It is very spacious and well appointed for cooking, reading and relaxing.

We had a wonderful month stay and the neighbors were great. Suffolk County is just lovely with many villages and historic sites to visit as well as country fairs and market days. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation time there.

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two-month stay in Kim and Martin's apartment. The apartment was spacious and beautifully appointed, in a peaceful rural location (although still just about within commuting distance of Cambridge). Kim and Martin were fantastically friendly and helpful before and during our stay.

Owner's Response: Katie and David were model guests and we're so happy that they were able to enjoy their time at the Manor as much as we do. They looked after the apartment as their own home, were great communicators and we'd love to welcome them back again one day!

Quiet and luxury appartment, not suitable for small children

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is in the back of the house, a little less luxury than the front side may be, but still very good, but no balcony. Everything was clean and in very good condition, complete kitchen including dishwasher, washing mashine & dryer, two bathrooms, TV, stereo, large rooms, 1 large bed and a less large one in the second bedroom.

Quiet place with park-like garden, but no playground etc. for children. No groceries or bakery (nor pub) in walk distance, so you need to use the car for everything. Two private parking bays available, one of them directly at the entrance door.

Beautyful landscape around, several cities close by, incl. Cambridge (30 Min. drive). From there train to London in 1 hour (fastest train).

Very friendly owner who helps in any questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rainer - it was a delight to have you staying in our apartment and to know that you enjoyed your time there as much as we do. Really appreciate your feedback on a couple of things that needed attention too - that is super helpful for us! I hope we might see you back here one day. Very best wishes, Martin & Kim
