Welcome to my second blog post, the dust has now settled, and the moving boxes are nearly all emptied, so I thought it would be a good time to tell you how we became the lucky owners of Suffolk Yurt Holidays and Oak Cottage.
We had talked for years about owning our own business and holidays and travel had always been a shared passion, but the time was never right. However, in April this year we decided we would take a look at some property in one of our favourite areas of Suffolk, we set a list of criteria that would need to be met, which was long and detailed, and it appeared we would never find a new residence without some serious compromise!!
After a few months of searching and some wasted trips it was becoming apparent that what we wanted just did not exist…..then out of the blue we received an email from one of the property search companies we had been using, they advised us of Oak Cottage a thatched house AND a leisure business on site, to top it all it was in one of our favourite locations Woodbridge.
I couldn’t make an appointment to view quick enough and the following day was on my way to Bredfield to have a look. My first impression when I pulled up and was greeted by the huge oak tree with a swing was one of joy, it was such a special place and after being given the guided tour by the current owner I knew in my heart this was the place for us and returned to Essex and put our property on the market. After a few frantic months of selling houses, solicitors, estate agents and removal companies we are eventually here with big plans for the future.
We had never considered Yurts before or any glamping for that matter but after staying here during the purchase I was smitten by the magic of these wonderful structures and watching the stars through the crown at the top of the yurt, sitting under an ancient oak or just enjoying the tranquillity of the place.
My advice is to come and try for yourself and enjoy some of the magic of Suffolk Yurt Holidays!
See You Next Year
