The handsome, Dutch-gabled house, built of soft red brick in 1846, is where Sue does B&B. The Coach House, listed and lovely, is approached off the main drive, peaceful and secluded behind its little gate yet two steps from Sue’s wonderful garden. Imagine clouds of banksia roses and clematis montana, peacocks, hens and majestic trees, black swans on the pond and a heated pool in a suntrap garden, surrounded by trellises of honeysuckle and jasmine. Spring and summer flowers find their way into your cosy retreat, with its new seagrass matting on old pine boards, calming colours, books, DVDs and wood-burner with unlimited logs. The bath, shower and bathrobes are downstairs, but it’s a quick flit to the bedroom above, in the vaulted hayloft. No hay now, just a pretty bed under the rafters, a large built-in cupboard, crisp white linen and a goose down duvet. The kitchen is newly equipped, there’s a butcher’s in little Earl Soham, an unspoilt pub too (simple meals, their own beers) and lots to love in Framlingham.
