At a glance : Heated swimming pool, hard tennis court, 2 acres of gardens, pool furniture, garden furniture, barbecue.

The house stands in about 2 acres, all for your exclusive enjoyment. Situated right in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, Cravens Manor is very secluded.

The gardens are quite mature, with recently re-planted borders. There's lots of open grassland for play.

The spacious terrace, bright with herbs and flowers, enjoys both sun and shade. Here you can linger over moonlit meals.

The swimming pool and tennis court are in the grounds of the house. The pool is 10m by 5m with a shallow end of about 1 metre shelving to a deep point of over 2 metres. It is open in the summer months and is heated by the sun and calor-gas and maintained at a temperature of about 27 degrees Celsius. It’s professionally serviced weekly.

The clear blue water tempts even the most reluctant swimmer. What could be better than a dip in a nice warm pool on one of the hot sunny days we generally enjoy on the East coast. And if it’s not so hot, you’ll find the children just enjoy themselves anyway.

The poolside furniture is there to help you relax – enjoy a nice lingering summer lunch while the children splash happily (but please don’t swim after eating and drinking!) Or simply sunbathe.

The hard tennis court is there for a bit of family fun and friendly rivalry. It won't stage serious matches but bring your own balls and racquets and have a knock-about.

There's a large table and eight chairs on the front lawn to enjoy the warmer weather and In the summerhouse you’ll find more garden furniture, designed to be easy to move around the garden and to seat all guests for meals.

The moveable barbecue is ideal for a summer evening party – you’ll just need your own consumables.
