The Experience

The thatched Deepwell Granary is part of a stunning Grade II listed building dating from the C16th to serve the farm small holding at Deepwell.

This cottage has a private enclosed garden and there is also a large wildflower meadow and wooded garden to enjoy with campfires, hammocks, seating and a bell tent to dream away the sunny days.

Deepwell, where the owners also live, is set in the pretty vale of Buxhall. This is a magical countryside retreat.

Deepwell Granary is happy to accept dogs.


Cottage Walk Through

Cottage Walk Through
The entrance to the Granary is via the private off road car park and through to the enclosed garden with its fire pit and outside seating area.

The front door takes you into a hallway, with the luxury shower bathroom to one side and then into the main room.

Downstairs is a large double height open plan room with the original timber frame exposed, and a large floor to ceiling window with views to the garden.

The comfortable sofa faces a cosy gas flame fire – this being a sensible alternative to a wood burning one due to the ancient thatched roof 🙂 The room forms an L shape and within that is a modern well laid out kitchen.

Leading from this beautiful and airy ground floor is an open staircase which brings you to the gallery level, containing the luxury bedroom and reading area, this overlooks the open plan area beneath and out onto the garden.

Well behaved Dogs are always welcome, please refer to this web page All About Bringing Pets for Charges, Rules and how this cottage may suit your pet.

The Gardens

You have your own private enclosed garden to enjoy meals, or sit beside the fire pit and relax with an evening drink, there is even a ‘cocoon’ to get into and swing from the tree in.

Just off the drive to the Granary you enter a magical two acre area of grassy woodland glades, lawns and orchard. Here you can take a stroll around, swing from trees, lie in a big hammock, or light up the fire pit and enjoy a sun downer by the pretty French table and chairs, and enjoy the views over the rolling countryside.

If you are feeling a bit more active then you can play boules, badminton or croquet as there is ample space and all equipment is supplie.

Set in the rural Vale of Buxhall, surrounded by gentle rolling hills and views across the fields; Deepwell Granary is in an area of beautiful countryside, woods and arable farmland.

There are plenty of footpaths for walking, local picturesque villages to visit and good pubs to investigate.

You can walk across the fields to The Buxhall Crown which is just 25 minutes away, for a well-earned pint and a very decent meal.

Green Credentials

The grounds are a haven for many birds and small animals and a patient guest will see a wide array of wildlife there.
