This beautifully converted 19th century Methodist chapel sits in a tranquil, hidden spot directly on Knodishall common and is the perfect base for exploring all that Suffolk has to offer. The interior is deceptively spacious, well equipped and tastefully furnished in a wonderful mix of contemporary and unique furniture, accessories and art work, sourced by the owners during their travels.
At the heart of the chapel is a large living area , prefect for socialising or relaxing. There is a well equipped kitchen/dining area and a step up to the generous living area, where the wood burning stove will keep you warm on winter evenings. Both bedrooms are a good size and the chapel boasts an en-suite and an additional family bathroom. This single storey holiday home is ideal for a family (including one dog!), a weekend away with friends or romantic getaway.
Knodishall is a quiet working village with a small shop, farm store and pub. Ebenezer Chapel sits directly on the common, a mosaic of heathland and grassland and a designated county wildlife site. It is just over 3 miles from the magical seaside village of Thorpeness (a beautiful walk across the common, the fields and forests will take you there in about an hour). The seaside town of Aldeburgh is about 4 miles away and Snape Maltings is close by.
Due to it's location there isn't parking directly outside but there is ample free parking within a minutes walk of the property (see picture).
You’re welcomed into the sociable open-plan accommodation with kitchen/dining room to your right and living room up a step to your left. The majority of this detached holiday cottage has solid oak flooring with carpet in the bedrooms and tiles in the bathroom.
The stylish kitchen is well equipped with integrated Bosch oven, ceramic hob, extractor, under counter fridge with ice compartment, slimline dishwasher and a microwave. There’s also a Krupps coffee machine (bring your own Nespresso original compatible capsules), kettle and toaster. A sturdy marble topped dining table with five dining chairs sits by the shuttered windows and majestic oriental cabinet.
There’s ample space to sit back and relax in the living room with a couple of comfy sofas and an armchair positioned so you can make the most of the massive wood burner, your choice of entertainment on the TV, or just watch the sunset over the common. Games and books on the shelves encourage you to while away the time in the comfort of your holiday home.
