Magnificent, medieval big house to rent. Sleeps 26. Vibrant waterfront location one hour from M25. All facilities expected of a large self catering house hire. Historic character combined with comfort and style creates the perfect weekend house party rental.
The Old Neptune offers luxurious and spacious self catering accommodation in a spectacular setting. Steeped in history and painstakingly restored over recent times, the interior decor has been stylishly updated to complement the historic architecture. The house features superb entertaining space together with 13 double bedrooms (several featuring Indonesian teak 4 poster beds) and 9 bathrooms, all set around a beautiful Italianate courtyard within yards of the thriving Ipswich Marina.
Celebrate: The 4 reception rooms work seamlessly with the courtyard to provide a real sense of space day or night.
Each room can accommodate all guests but part of the joy ofa house like this is wandering around discovering groups of people as the mood takes you. Dancing in the dining hall, pool in the games room, chatting by the fountain, captivated by the fire in the living room whilst someone offers to get more drinks from the kitchen!
The Old Neptune will comfortably sleep 26 persons in 13 double bedrooms. The house is a paradise for children with its spaciousness and hiding places and offers total privacy and security and they can either have their own rooms as part of the 24 or some rooms also have an extra bed so they can share with Mum and Dad (or Grandparents if you’re lucky)
Relax: The Old Neptune feels very much like a country house but is actually in the centre of a town, which offers the best of both worlds. Once inside you feel like you have escaped modern life and been transported to a different age with total privacy and luxury and many guests never actually leave (during their stay obviously). However step outside the door, and you have The Marina, a wonderful place to stroll around or stop for a drink and something to eat. Yacht charter is easily arranged and can be designed to accommodate all groups and skill levels, spending the day navigating The Orwell and The Stour. The paved walkways and historic architecture of the town centre are within easy walking distance with supermarkets, shops, restaurants and take-aways and places to keep the kids entertained.
Catering can be done yourself in the well-equipped kitchen, outside caterers can be arranged or if you prefer, there are several excellent cafes and restaurants on the doorstep.
Enjoy: Experience the pleasure of sharing a big historic house with friends and/or family and make your celebration a special memory. The house truly comes alive with big groups of people and has hosted some memorable occasions in its 500+ years.
To celebrate or relax and always to enjoy, The Old Neptune offers you your very own fantasy venue.
