WINTER ESCAPES: Dream in the clouds on this unusual Suffolk Staycation

on in Travel

Because getting away from it all doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

House in the CloudsStill got some holiday left to take at work but can’t afford to go abroad this close to Christmas? Why not ditch the plane and take a Staycation instead? Staycations – holidaying in the UK rather than going further afield – are a great way to take the stress out of your trip. And with so many amazing places to stay in the UK you’ll never want to leave again…

The House in the Clouds looks like something straight out of a fairytale. This unusual guesthouse is guaranteed to give you the kind of break you won’t forget in a hurry!

With five bedrooms, a sofa bed, three bathrooms, a drawing room, dining room and the magnificent ‘room at the top’ giving the finest views of Suffolk – there’s plenty of space to kick back and relax.

Set in an acre of private grounds, the House in the Clouds overlooks Thorpeness Golf Course, Thorpness Meare and the sea on the stunning Suffolk Heritage Coast. It’s close to Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings, Minsmere and other bird and nature reserves too.

This remarkable building was erected in 1923 as the new water tower for nearby Thorpeness. The water tank was cunningly ‘disguised’ as a quaint little cottage – now a highly unusual holiday let.

Get your head in the clouds now…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
