Property details

A simply stunning, secluded property in the heart of Suffolk. The Old Foundry is an exceptional property located in one of Suffolk’s most idyllic spots. This is the perfect retreat for anyone looking to get away from it all and discover this delightful corner of Suffolk with its abundance of spectacular walks, cycle routes and wildlife.

Originally a substantial workshop and five bay cart lodge, The Old Foundry has been sympathetically converted into a spectacular space. The owners have retained the original character of the building, whilst finishing it to an exceptionally high and exacting standard. Some of the key features include a handmade Henry Gordon-Jones kitchen, two sophisticated bathroom suites and, of course, the sheltered veranda, accessed through sliding doors and overlooking your own private, south-facing expanse of garden.

On entering The Old Foundry you come into a tastefully decorated, vaulted reception hall/second sitting room with large working fireplace. This leads through double doors into the drawing room where 3 sets of large sliding doors open out onto the veranda with its own outside furniture and garden.
The private expanse of garden is laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedging.

Surrounding local area

The Old Foundry is situated in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is characterised by the gently rolling farm land, picturesque villages, ancient woodlands and a variety of wildlife. The countryside has been made famous by the world-renowned painters Constable, Gainsborough and Munnings. Within the area there are a number of museums which show case their work, showing off the countryside which has changed very little since it was painted by them.

Heading out from The Old Foundry there are numerous footpaths to explore the area on foot and you can join up with the Stour Valley Path which follows the meandering path of the River Stour from near Newmarket to Cattawade where the river runs into the estuary. There are also opportunities to explore the countryside on bikes. Suffolk Cycle Hire can help you with this.

Besides the rich history of the region there are some fun things to do with younger guests. A trip to Kentwell Hall will allow you to experience the life of a Tudor estate while Colchester Zoo boasts a wide range of animals to meet and find out about how the zoo is helping with conservation. Colchester Castle has over 2000 years of history on display, in particular finds from Roman times.

The Old Foundry offers the best of being able to explore the area whilst also being able to return at the end of the day and relax in the peaceful settings.

Guest reviews

We booked the old foundry for a couple of reasons 1) not far from Ipswich 2)Ideal for our grandson as all on one level throughout . Upon arrival the layout did not disappoint, as described in the brochure and on line.The property is well appointed and there is plenty of space for a family of four plus one grandson. The ample enclosed garden is very restful with sun visiting the balcony and garden throughout the day.Access to the property is easy ,especially with the aid of sat nav. Quite an easy journey to/from Ipswich . The whole family enjoyed staying at the old foundry, could not fault any points as shown above. Not to forget , the local pub the Cock Inn very good for food and drink , very good host , also the crown in Stoke Nayland is good too.
