Eco-chic Luxury Cabin as Featured in The Times Newspaper
Hare Field Cabin is the perfect effortless escape. Just a short drive out of London takes you to a quiet spot in the heart of Suffolk’s gentle countryside, but the cabin’s modern elegance keeps the best of urban comfort close to hand. You can laze in the king-size bed with the sound of birdsong in the background and the golden fields on show, pad across the heated floor to the monsoon shower, then throw open the doors to the terrace while you cook breakfast in the fabulous kitchen. Owners Richard and Rachel have considered the environment in everything from the reclaimed wood of the veranda and the air-source heat pump, to the careful positioning that blends the cabin into its surroundings.
If you feel like an adventure, you can follow the miles of footpaths and bike trails that criss-cross the sleepy landscape from the door of Hare Field Cabin to medieval towns and villages, or make a day trip to the coast. Come home via the local farm shop to pick up something for the barbecue or marshmallows for the firepit, then lie back on the loungers and watch the stars. There’s even a spa nearby, although with the cabin itself working its mellowing magic on you, you’re hardly likely to need it.
There is parking for one car on the driveway. The modern kitchen features an oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge and icebox. The garden is not enclosed and leads onto farmland.

About Richard Doubleday
Meet Richard & Rachel It was a chance discovery of the quintessential Suffolk village of Foxearth that made Richard and Rachel want to move to this ‘secret’ area of the country; a tranquil location where everything slows down and the pace of life seems so much more relaxed. With narrow, picturesque country lanes and undulating expanse of countryside with 360 degrees views, they decided this was the place where they wanted to stay.
Why Richard Doubleday chose Foxearth
They decided this hidden Suffolk would be a fantastic place for people to visit. The perfect spot to build a holiday let, right next to an open field taking in the magnificent views. Our ethos, to construct a building that fits seamlessly into the countryside and has a low impact on the environment. The cabin reflects a traditional Suffolk hit-and-miss style that had been used for centuries on many old barns, built using Larch, a material that blends with age. Surrounding the property is a veranda made from reclaimed scaffold boards and the off cuts were used to create an original dining table and dressing table. Inside handcrafted Bentwood Oak light shades by Tom Raffield, continue the wooden theme. The log burning stove, outdoor fire pit and an Eco air source heat pump which also cools in the summer, adds to the cabin's low impact.
What makes this House unique
Wildlife & Environment Backing onto a golden cornfield, with uninterrupted views right on the headland of the fields and surrounded by miles of rolling countryside, an abundance of wildlife can be seen from your cabin. Deer, owls, pheasants and birds of prey are regular sightings, but the highlight has to be on a sunny morning with a light mist in the air, sitting on the veranda and watching boxing hares vying for their position within the husk.

A delightful birthday surprise
I was looking for a special romantic weekend getaway for my husband who has been travelling overseas a bit too much recently for his work. This wonderful wood cabin was the perfect answer. Richard has been most helpful with my requests and enquiries and for accommodating our 6 month old puppy. Even though the weather was quite wet, we went for walks with the doggy, visited nearby Sudbury, Long Melford and Lavenham. In the evenings we just switched off completely from work, lazed around, watched TV and chit chat with a glass of wine...or two:-). The cabin is beautifully furnished and well equipped for self catering.
We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing weekend away.
Awesome wood cabin. Really well designed and a great place to escape for a few days!
Lovely stay in a relaxing cabin
We had a great time at the Hare Field Cabin. It is decked out to a very high standard, and offers everything you need for a short break.
Bacon, eggs, bread and milk were provided on arrival , and was a nice touch.
The log burning stove was easy to light and created a very warm and cozy environment in which to relax.
It is close by to some lovely towns and villages, which were fun to explore.
Whether you’re looking for a relaxing stay to do nothing but put your feet up, or a more adventurous break, the Hare Field Cabin is the place to do it.
All in, a lovely and relaxing stay.
Guests will love to immerse themselves into the charming local communities. Long Melford was voted 7th most desirable village in Britain by Savills and boasts the longest high street in England (at 2.5 miles long!) along with two romantic Tudor mansions. Lavenham on the other hand is a classical English market town celebrated for its medieval half-timbered cottages and Harry Potter fame. Indulge in a smorgasbord of gourmet delights sourced from the farm shops and roadside food stalls; pick up a bottle of English wine on a vineyard tour of Giffords Hall to enjoy alongside a cheese board from Sudbury market.
