Laxton Fortune is a delightful combination of country lodges Laxton and Fortune which are part of Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa and together accommodate six guests in the peaceful, idyllic surroundings of Constable Country, near Stoke by Nayland in Suffolk. The lodges are perfect for romantic escapes, cosy family and friends' reunions and golf and spa breaks.
Spacious and bright, each of the two floors offers a large open-plan living, kitchen and dining area which features floor-to-ceiling windows at one end, with patio doors leading out onto large balconies looking out over the beautiful Suffolk countryside – just perfect for a leisurely breakfast or barbecue, a spot of sunbathing or perhaps an evening cocktail or two as the sun goes down. On the ground floor there is a spacious en-suite double bedroom, a second large bedroom with access to the family bathroom. On the first floor there is a luxurious penthouse en-suite bedroom with high ceilings and chandelier. Each of the three bedrooms offer zip and link beds which can either be twins, or can be zipped together to make a super king-size bed.
Up to ten lodges offering a total of 16 double bedrooms can also be booked together for much larger groups of up to 32 guests. These are all within a five minute drive of the nearby outstanding facilities at the family-owned Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa.
