Details

Nestled on the Essex/Suffolk border with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, The Pheasant is a glorious, award winning country pub and boutique hotel with luxurious accommodation.

Welcome to The Pheasant, the award-winning pub, restaurant and hotel on the Essex/Suffolk border.

The pub’s Coach House country hotel opened its doors in July 2006, and have already welcomed guests from as far as Southern California in America. Our new, stylish hotel rooms are proving to be a big success. We decided to name the hotel rooms after local notable people to celebrate East Anglia’s heritage. Iconic figures like Gainsborough and Constable are well known, but we also wanted to celebrate lesser known people who have strong connections to the area.

Guests arriving for a refreshing drink, delicious dinner, or peaceful overnight stay in our boutique hotel, soon see that comfort and quality are served as standard. We have created a warm and inviting restaurant, serving freshly prepared, locally sourced regional food every day of the week. Comfortable chairs, beautiful oak tables and an open fire create an intimate and friendly atmosphere. We want our guests to know where they are in the country, and what time of year it is when it comes to our menu.

The Coach House is a boutique hotel, located on the grounds of The Pheasant, Gestingthorpe. Having opened in July 2011, the five impeccably designed and furnished rooms have proved to be hugely popular.

The Coach House boasts five unique and individually designed large rooms, all complete with a stylish en suite bathroom. Each of the five rooms would be the ideal choice for a relaxing getaway in the countryside. Historic local icons inspired the design of each room, and with views over the rolling Suffolk hills - you're sure of a bit of a peace and quiet. Generous helpings of good food at The Pheasant will really top off your stay with us.

  • image description
    Sleeps 2
  • £85 - £165 per room per night

This stylishly furnished hotel room is available with either a super king-size bed or comfortable twin. The en suite bathroom is designed with relaxation in mind. Next door to the en suite is a private dressing room area, complete with large wardrobe. The Gainsborough hotel room also has French windows, leading out onto a private patio area.

This hotel room is named after Suffolk’s well-loved artist, who painted many royal portraits. The damask curtains that drape the French windows and the wool tapestry on the wall behind the bed, reflect the time of Gainsborough, adding real character to this new hotel room. The colours and textiles were chosen as they were inspired by Gainsborough Silk Weaving Mills and Gainsborough House, in Sudbury, which was the artist’s family home.

    Sleeps 2
  • £85 - £165 per room per night

If you’re looking for an elegant and relaxing hotel experience, choose the Mark Catesby hotel room.

The Mark Catesby hotel room was named after the notable botanist who was born at Castle Hedingham and lived in the nearby market town of Sudbury.

This collection of work was commissioned by King George III and is now on view in the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace. The rich and luxurious colours and fabrics used in the room were inspired by Catesby and his passion for flora and fauna.

  • £85 - £165 per room per night

This much sought-after hotel room is located on the first floor of the Coach House and boasts a comfortable king-size bed and immaculate en suite shower room, as well as stunning views over the countryside’s rolling hills.

The fabric above the bed’s headboard is a beautiful crushed velvet in regal purple, a colour Courtauld introduced. The well-considered interior design of this room reflects the glamorous art deco period, with silvers and greys influenced by their designs at Eltham Palace, Greenwich, from the 1930s.

His bravery and heroism are still admired, almost a century later. The hotel room which bares his name is the largest of all the five rooms at the Coach House hotel. The design was inspired by Oates’ time spent with the Royal Dragoon, with smart light blues and greys being combined with a warming tartan.
