Haughley HouseBrochure Page. 73
Set in the historical surroundings of a small village in the heart of Suffolk, the imposing timber framed Haughley House is a late medieval manor offering luxury bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation to visitors to this lovely part of the UK.
Inside the manor there is a sumptuous mix of high quality Georgian furniture and exquisite silk lined walls. Antique weapons, fans and plates add to the country house style of a more leisurely age. B&B guests will be offered tea and home made cakes upon arrival here in Suffolk.
The luxury B&B Wolsey Lodge guest accommodation at Haughley House offers three guest bedrooms which are in the oldest part of the house and original oak beams are visible in all three. Both double rooms have period beds (including a majestic mahogany four poster) and en suite shower, whilst the twin room has en suite bath and shower. The comfortable sitting room offers a quiet retreat for B&B guests all year round and a log fire burns in winter.
Outside, the three acre garden has well stocked flower beds and guests can relax in the shade of the ancient Cedar of Lebanon and magnificent beech tree. The orchard and walled kitchen garden provides virtually all the vegetables for the house, whilst the host's own flock of hens provide eggs for the table and their stock provides beef and game for the B&B guests.
