Atmospheric and romantic, this converted stable offers a magical couples’ escape in the heart of the Waveney Valley. Set within a serene smallholding amid 20 acres of paddocks and woodland, this adults-only retreat is perfect for couples and solo adventurers seeking a peaceful and rejuvenating break. With facilities including an outdoor swimming pool, a treehouse, hammocks, fire pits and a BBQ area shared with a handful of other properties, relaxation is assured.

Lovingly converted in 2022, this former stable block oozes charm and romance. With magical views across the grounds and high quality fixtures and fittings throughout, it exudes a relaxed rural elegance. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner has a definite wow factor, with high ceilings, a feature brick fireplace, and a deer antler chandelier. The sleek corner kitchen is beautifully equipped for preparing meals at home, while the deep sofa whispers of cosy nights in, snuggled by the wood burner watching a film or chatting over a bottle of wine. When night falls, head up to the luxurious first-floor bedroom to get cosy under the covers of your king-size bed. With a roll-top bath at the foot of the bed and skylights allowing you to stargaze from bed or bath, it feels relaxing and indulgent. Next to your bedroom, a mezzanine balcony gives you a bird’s eye view over the lounge, while the shower room is on the ground floor. Outside, a bistro table and chairs on your covered patio offers a delightful spot for breakfast.

With the enchanting shared amenities plus a delightful menagerie of fallow deer, sheep, ducks, chickens, geese, peafowl, and guinea fowl wandering around, there’s plenty to do without leaving the grounds. A short walk along The Lows (0.5 miles) takes you to the ancient market town of Diss, where you can wander around Diss Mere, explore independent shops, and hop on a train running between Norwich and London. Located close to the border of Suffolk, this is a great base for exploring the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads and heritage coast.

Groom's Rooms was everything we could hope for in terms of comfort and had everything we needed. We were so lucky to have super sunshine all week. All the animals are delightful and many are tame, to such an extent that they literally eat out of your hand. The location was idyllic for us and extremely peaceful. Having the car allowed us to tour aroRead moreund the area. Framlingham was particularly pretty and had a real buss on Saturday market day. Bury St Edmunds is aways worth a visit. Hide

We had the most amazing week in the Grooms Rooms. The property was immaculate and a perfect way to spend half term. We couldn't recommend this place enough and will be coming back in the summer. Shout out to the owners for being friendly, helpful and communicative.
