Set in a woodland glade, the Round House offers some wonderful parkland walks right from the doorstep. You'll wake up in the morning to the sound of birdsong and see deer trotting past the garden. This unspoilt location offers tranquillity and beauty. If you have dogs, they'll love you for this treat.

A unique experience

The Round House, with its unique appearance and equally fascinating history, was first used as a shooting lodge and then a gamekeeper's cottage. It now offers a very cosy and comfortable stay at the heart of this 1,800-acre estate. Historic Bury St Edmunds is just 3 miles away, and the pubs in Horringer just a short walk.
