On the outskirts of the pretty village of Thorington this little hideaway offers a wonderful retreat within the beautiful Suffolk landscape. Adjoining the impressively prominent Thorington Hall, this former gate lodge is screened by a hedge and gated entrance to provide a small parking and courtyard garden area, separate from the Hall.

Things to see and do nearby

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    The cottage was a delight. It was beautifully presented in a delightful location. We appreciated the little touches such as the treats, bowl and towel that had been left for our dog. We have stayed in your cottages before and not previously experienced this before. There were other nice details we have not seen before and we look forward to returning to this cottage.

    We enjoyed being able to look round Thorington Hall at the invitation of the housekeeper. It was unoccupied at the time. The standard of the cottage was excellent. We would like to thank the housekeeper for her interest and high standards.

    Everything. The property was extremely well appointed , very clean and well presented and ideally located for the relaxing week away the three of us sought. It allowed us to draw breath before returning to the run up to Christmas. Thanks National Trust.
