A Spacious, Self-Indulgent Sanctuary with Shoppable Art

This stunning property was once home to a group of Benedictine monks, who founded a priory here in the 11th century. It felt into ruin in 1537, and the remains were turned into farm buildings.

In 2006, a fashion stylist and her art director husband discovered the rundown property and turned it into a contemporary holiday letting that makes the very best of its original features. Set in the Suffolk countryside, it’s within walking distance of the historic village of Eye.

The newest addition to the site, this is a huge gallery living space with an eclectic mix of mid-century Scandinavian and one-off pieces, and art throughout that is all available for sale. The Gallery sleeps two, but space for two additional guests is available in the nearby shepherds hut (at extra cost).

This vacation home rental in Suffolk is ideal for two people who love the countryside but want style and space, less than two hours away from London by car.

To see the other property on this site, visit Priory Grounds here.

  • Sarah Crompton, November 13, 2020

    The Gallery at Abbey Hall is a unique and magical place to stay. This converted barn is an impressive space, with history in its stones. Especially now, when everyone is stuck inside, it gives an extraordinary sense of airiness and light, and the opportunity to feel liberated. A huge wood burning stove adds to the atmosphere and keeps the place warm, though there are also other heaters. The downstairs area offers really grand dining while upstairs is for relaxing. It’s nice to be in the gallery surrounded by art – and the bedroom area is really cozy. The space has been cleverly converted so there are different areas – a lounge, a breakfast nook and a bedroom. There are – luxury – two loos and a great shower. The locality nearby is charming, a proper little town with great walks. It’s not a conventional choice for bed and breakfast. Instead it’s a place to inspire, somewhere wonderful to think, chill out, read, or work. We loved it!
