About the Owner

We have owned Nowton Lodge Farm since 2007, and in that time have completely restored it, and have been successfully renting it out as a fantastic and friendly large holiday home since 2012. It is our only holiday home and we manage everything ourselves from the bookings to the laundry and cleaning. Kay & Gary.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A gorgeous farmhouse located the near picturesque Bury St Edmunds, and the beautiful Nowton Park just minutes away. We spent a week during the summer holidays in Nowton Lodge farmhouse - the large, historic property is surrounded by beautiful grounds and was perfect for our family and children. With local attractions and the town a sort distance away makes this holiday home the perfect place to stay. We will definitely be visiting again next year! The owners were really helpful ahead of our stay and were always happy to respond to any queries we had during our holiday - a very welcoming feeling. Thanks Gary & Kay for a truly memorable stay!



Just to let you know we enjoyed our stay at Nowton Lodge Farm it was a great place for a family gathering and our 95 year old mum really enjoyed her stay.



We really enjoyed staying in the farmhouse and I especially loved seeing the horses everyday - and the two fabulous cockerels who seemed to know the moment we were up and about.

Very comfortable and ideal for family get together

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with my extended family and really enjoyed it. It was cosy but there was room to spread out a bit, and we found the house to be ideal.

Excellent group holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Nowton Lodge Farm as part of a large group of friends who had traveled from various parts of the country. This was our second stay in the house as we enjoyed the first so much we were pleased to return.

The house is comfortable and beautiful in a lovely setting. It is well-maintained and well-provided for. We enjoyed time spent in the house, walks in the near-by park and trips into Bury St Edmunds.

The owners were easy to deal with and very helpful. One morning we had a slight problem with the kitchen sink and the owner was round and had dealt with the problem within half an hour.

I would heartily recommend this property to other holiday-makers and hope that we will return there ourselves.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family group varying in age from 9 months to 64 years. We spent three nights at Nowton Lodge as we were in the area for a wedding. Our stay was just lovely. The house and garden are beautiful. The discovery of Nowton Park over the road was amazing. Kay was easily contacted when needed. We'd happily return. Thank-you.

Long before cars it was the nightly stopover for the Colchester to Norwich leg of the London to Norwich coach, passengers staying in the Lodge Inn with the Coach House for the coach man, so has been welcoming guests for hundreds of years. It was once owned by Gainsborough Dupont, nephew of Thomas Gainsborough - unfortunately no masterpieces were found in the attic!

Bury St Edmunds is approximately 2 miles away, Newmarket 19 miles, Cambridge 31 miles, Nowich 44 miles and London just 83 miles.
