 CHAPEL BARN ESTATE 

AUTUMN 2019

The newly renovated Chapel Barn Estate will open in Autumn 2019, significantly expanding the Wilderness collection. Chapel Barn itself is a traditional Suffolk long barn converted with sensitivity to offer generous space for celebrations and events at ground level, with a lower level pool and hot tub. Across this new estate, Chapel Barn offers 14 bedrooms beside the 7 bedrooms at The Grange, 6 bedrooms at The Cider House, 6 bedrooms at Moat Cottage and two unique one bedroom boltholes perfect for romantic escapes - ‘Tennis Pavilion’ and ‘The Tabernacle’.

This Tudor farmstead experienced its heyday in the 16th century when the main house, remnants of which can still be seen in the oak frame of the barn, sat alongside an old pilgrimage route from Dunwich to Bury St Edmunds. This collection of worker’s cottages and barns has been lovingly restored and the rolling landscape brought back to life, with cattle and sheep once again grazing the valley sides and a traditional apple orchard being replanted.

Set in this forgotten corner of Suffolk, the renovation has been led by the Estate build team using natural materials and working with local crafts men and women on the oak frames, lime pargetting, and long straw and read thatch, to preserve these traditional techniques.


 THE CIDER HOUSE 

The Cider House is our traditional Suffolk pink thatched cottage. Sleeping up to 12 guests, the property will showcase free standing copper baths and underfloor heating. 

The open kitchen area will comfortably sit all guests to dine and will feature a large island, professional cooking equipment and large slidding glass windows. Guests will be able to move between the bright kitchen and cosy living room boasting a large open fire. 

The Cider House has its own terrace featuring a private pool, sauna and hot tub.

 THE HOVEL 

Hidden away in a secluded and tranquil area of the estate, The Hovel is a romantic one-bedroom cottage offering a haven for 2 guests. The cottage is deceptive and designed for its namesake, hidden in the woodland past flower strewn streams, this den only revealing its luxury once inside. 

Enter the spacious kitchen and living area before moving through to the king size bedroom where your copper bath sits alongside. Finally, don’t forget to step outside into the property’s own private hot tub for an ultimate relaxation.

 CHAPEL BARN 

Chapel Barn is the perfect place to bring together friends and family in a property that manages to be both intimate and spacious. The standout space is our renovated 15th century barn, which can be set both informally or in a more traditional banqueting style, designed to be completely flexible to the needs of our guests. 

The ‘wow-factor’ doesn’t stop there. Off the main barn to the east is a beautifully laid out kitchen and dining room for 30. To the west is the relaxed drawing room, set in Wilderness’s signature cosy style. 

Descend to your private entertainment area, complete with games room, cinema, fully-equipped gym, and indoor pool, to keep all the family diverted. Situated around the enclosed courtyard are the 14 bedrooms, each fitted to the highest standards with luxurious interiors, en suite bathrooms and underfloor heating throughout. 

For those unforgettable events which deserve/demand a special touch, the Barn has been installed with a catering kitchen so you can wine and dine without worry.

This one bedroom cottage is already a favourite amongst the team. Unlike anything we’ve created before, this fairy-tale shack sits atop a small lake with its own island. Accessed only via rope bridge, sunken into its centre is a private hot tub and secluded dining spot for two. 

The luxury continues inside with cosy loveseats nestled by an open fire to deep free standing baths alongside a king size bed. The Tabernacle is the ultimate in romantic escapism.
