Property details

This handsome Grade II listed Georgian former coach house to Sibton Park dates from 1827 and has been thoughtfully converted to provide guests with an eclectic, yet modern, country cottage. All of the rooms, which are on ground floor level, wrap around the central south facing courtyard, providing beautiful open plan living, resplendent with ornamental flower beds and a large table for dining under the stars.

The property can be booked on its own or in conjunction with The Barn with which it discreetly interconnects. The rustic charm of the sunlit, brick floored kitchen & breakfast room is perfectly informal for gatherings large and small with large floor-to-ceiling french doors opening to the secluded courtyard.

Set within 4,500 acre of parkland, Sibton Park is a haven for wildlife, alongside offering guests the facility of an outdoor swimming pool (April-October) and tennis court. An additional concierge service is available upon request which can include a chef or bespoke spa treatments.

Surrounding local area

Sibton Park Estate was developed from the 17th Century on land to the east of Sibton Abbey, a picturesque ruin itself dating from 1150. The current house was built in the Greek manner by Robert Sayer, once Sheriff of Suffolk, to replace an earlier Queen Anne house and features giant pilasters and a central bay of full height Ionic columns forming an open semi-circular portico to create a dramatic entrance.

Sibton Park Estate is becoming a haven for wildlife with well over 100 different bird species. Over 2,000 nest boxes have been erected, including 38 owl boxes as part of the Suffolk Barn Owl project and the Estate is home to significant breeding populations of raptors, including a dozen pairs of Barn Owls and eight pairs of Buzzards, as well as many other at risk species. They are establishing a reed bed for migratory wetland species, particularly the Reed Bunting and Reed Warbler plus there are significant mammal, amphibian, moth and butterfly populations developing through the planting of woodland, field trees and hedgerows and the introduction of ponds, lakes and meadows.

Set deep in the Yox Valley in the county boasting the greatest expanse of sky and cleanest air in England, Wilderness Reserve is nestled between the pretty Suffolk villages of Peasenhall and Yoxford yet just a short drive from the celebrated Heritage Coast. Southwold, on the mouth of the River Blythe, has a fine Victorian pier, colourful beach huts and is home of the famous Adnams Brewery. Nearby Walberswick is a favourite spot for crabbing with the children and is connected to Southwold via the quaint ‘foot ferry’. Equally fashionable is historic Aldeburgh, with its spectacular beach, world-famous festival and renowned fish & chips.

Within the Yox Valley, guests can choose from a wide variety of award-winning traditional and gastro-pubs, such as The Westleton Crown, a delightful country pub serving a hearty British menu, the Sibton White Horse, an informal pub serving home-cooked food and fine ales and The Queen’s Head in Dennington, a fine 16th Century pub serving excellent cuisine. Restaurants include the Crown & Castle in Orford and Mains, in nearby Yoxford. The Crown in Walberswick and Brudenell in Aldeburgh, both within easy reach of Sibton Park, are also not to be missed.

Aldeburgh and nearby Snape Maltings are a mecca for musicians, artists and poets. Together, they play host to the Aldeburgh Festival, a yearround cultural event founded by composer Benjamin Britten. The Snape Maltings Concert Hall, operated year-round by Aldeburgh Music, hosts a wide array of recitals, travelling theatre companies and musicians and Aldeburgh also hosts its own poetry festival. Excellent shopping and even more culture can be found just over the county boundary in the world-famous university city of Cambridge. Peer into the many colleges with their manicured quadrangles, hear the choir sing in spectacular King’s College Chapel or go punting on the River Cam, a must for any visitor.
