Part of the cottage originally formed the end section of a small aisled hall built in the 13th century with later additions from the 1600s to date. Whilst retaining its charm and character, it has been sensitively refurbished/restored in recent years to provide very attractive accommodation. One of the more recent additions is an oak veranda on the side of the property which provides a very pleasant place to sit with a cup of tea or glass of wine! The cottage is situated on a quiet lane with views over the grounds of a large country house. There are several footpaths near to the cottage and easy access to the South Suffolk Cycle Route.

very nice and homley
we were down in Essex working and coming back to the property and being able to sit and relax after a hard day at work was a nice expirance
We were warmly welcomed by Lorna and David to this charming cottage packed with history. Staying here really does feel like you stepped back in time but with all the modern creature comforts. The house was warm and well equipped. 4 adults and 2 children fit well in this house and it felt like a home away for home, albeit only for 3 days. Such a peaceful place to stay and comfortable too. We would definitely return.
