UK: Hospitality group Chestnut has opened seven lodges at The Weeping Willow in Barrow, Suffolk.
The new dog-friendly timber lodges sleep up to five people and are categorised as Best, Best Family and Good. All offer king size beds, rainfall showers, a desk and workspace, coffee machine and complimentary Bramley products. The Best accommodation provides wood-fired hot tubs and the Best Family lodges feature bunk beds.
All the lodges are located behind The Weeping Willow – a 16th century country pub, kitchen and garden.
Philip Turner, founder and chief executive of Chestnut, said: “The Weeping Willow lodges have been one of our most exciting projects in our journey so far and support the increased demand we have seen from short breaks in East Anglia. The lodges offer a new style of accommodation and now guests from further afield can enjoy the food and overnight experience at one of our most popular destination pubs.
“The lodges also represent Chestnut’s commitment to being environmentally aware,” Turned added. “The methods chosen in the construction of our lodges support biodiversity and ensured there was minimum disruption to the land and surrounding habitats. They offer a low-carbon stay with no single use products, energy saving systems and recycled glass carafes. We are proud of what we have achieved and have had great feedback from staying guests so far.”
