Oozing style, beauty and spectacular views this impressive tower property is sure to provide an unforgettable trip of a lifetime for all who visit. From hen-dos to family gatherings, everyone is welcome in this magnificent property that sleeps 18 across nine beautifully furnished bedrooms.

Set in the heart of the beautiful Suffolk countryside, enjoy bike rides, wildlife spotting and afternoon strolls along the River Orwell nearby (2.5 miles away).

Despite spanning across seven spectacular levels, there is not one bit of detail that has been left throughout this property. Finished with a contemporary and luxurious feel throughout, you are sure to be delighted by every element, from the extensive, brilliantly equipped kitchen that can cater for up to 18 people, right through to the tiered seating in the theatre style cinema room that will leave you feeling like you've just attended the premier of the latest Hollywood hit. Hop in the lift and delve deeper into every little detail that has been cleverly thought of throughout - whether it's the games room complete with games consoles or one of the nine beautifully furnished bedrooms that stretch across three floors. It's this clever layout that make this property ideal for several groups of family and friends to get together, as it allows space for all to gather, whilst still having your own element of privacy.

If the spectacular heights of the 80-foot high roof deck aren't brilliant enough, then head outside to the ground floor to enjoy the BBQ area for a spot of al fresco dining.

Getting all the kids and grandkids together in a great venue was a terrific time had by all. Lift doesnt stop at every floor though. 9 double bedroom, terrific roof terrace, large cinema, 2 gaming areas, a significant lounge, huge kitchen diner, and a basketball hoop. Friendly hosts. Nothing to complain about at all.
