About Richard Doubleday
Meet Richard & Rachel It was a chance discovery of the quintessential Suffolk village of Foxearth that made Richard and Rachel want to move to this ‘secret’ area of the country; a tranquil location where everything slows down and the pace of life seems so much more relaxed. With narrow, picturesque country lanes and undulating expanse of countryside with 360 degrees views, they decided this was the place where they wanted to stay.
Why Richard Doubleday chose Foxearth
They decided this hidden Suffolk would be a fantastic place for people to visit. The perfect spot to build a holiday let, right next to an open field taking in the magnificent views. Our ethos, to construct a building that fits seamlessly into the countryside and has a low impact on the environment. The cabin reflects a traditional Suffolk hit-and-miss style that had been used for centuries on many old barns, built using Larch, a material that blends with age. Surrounding the property is a veranda made from reclaimed scaffold boards and the off cuts were used to create an original dining table and dressing table. Inside handcrafted Bentwood Oak light shades by Tom Raffield, continue the wooden theme. The log burning stove, outdoor fire pit and an Eco air source heat pump which also cools in the summer, adds to the cabin's low impact.
What makes this House unique
Wildlife & Environment Backing onto a golden cornfield, with uninterrupted views right on the headland of the fields and surrounded by miles of rolling countryside, an abundance of wildlife can be seen from your cabin. Deer, owls, pheasants and birds of prey are regular sightings, but the highlight has to be on a sunny morning with a light mist in the air, sitting on the veranda and watching boxing hares vying for their position within the husk.

The cabin ideal for a weekend away in the countryside. It has everything you could possibly need. It's very cosy and comfortable, and perfect for having a nice evening in with dinner outside. The surrounding area is really lovely with loads of nice villages, tea rooms and pubs.
This is the most perfect cabin for someone who needs to get away from it all, relax, de-stress and reboot. The views are absolutely stunning. The cabin itself is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was hard to leave this morning.
There are plenty of public paths from the cabin and cute little villages nearby.
This property deserves a 6th start!!
Absolutely loved our stay! So relaxing and the location is breathtaking, already recommended to family and friends. Would definitely visit the cabin again! 10/10
Beautiful cabin in idyllic setting
The cabin was beautifully presented with excellent amenities in a wondering setting. It exceeded our expectations. Lovely host and extremely easy process. Would love to return.
Great little cabin, nicely kitted out in beautiful countryside
Good communication from owner Richard who was very friendly and helpful with local sights and walks. Cabin itself is very smart and nicely kitted out with good quality furniture and soft furnishings. Well equipped kitchen. Lovely little outside space with fire pit and BBQ. Right on the edge of an agricultural field, not overlooked at all and very peaceful. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Brilliant cabin. Enjoyed it.
Guests will love to immerse themselves into the charming local communities. Long Melford was voted 7th most desirable village in Britain by Savills and boasts the longest high street in England (at 2.5 miles long!) along with two romantic Tudor mansions. Lavenham on the other hand is a classical English market town celebrated for its medieval half-timbered cottages and Harry Potter fame. Indulge in a smorgasbord of gourmet delights sourced from the farm shops and roadside food stalls; pick up a bottle of English wine on a vineyard tour of Giffords Hall to enjoy alongside a cheese board from Sudbury market.
