The property

A beautiful terraced cottage located in the heart of the market town of Clare, Winter Cottage is perfect for a couple, friends or small family looking to explore the countryside of Suffolk.

Park on the roadside to unpack into this delightful cottage, punctuated by it's historic charm.

When planning the day ahead of you, relax in the sitting room with beautiful exposed beams, flame effect fire and exposed wooden flooring.

Whilst the kitchen is small and long it has everything you need to cook up a form, with contemporary cream cupboards and ample amenities for you to cook a light bite, which can be enjoyed at the antique dining table or outdoor seating area.

As the day draws to a close, freshen up in the first floor bathroom with a bath and shower above, before retreating to either the front bedroom with king size bed or the rear bedroom with small double bed.

The property benefits from a small outdoor area located separately to the property, with a bistro table and chairs to enjoy your morning cup of coffee.

Winter Cottage is located in the heart of the historic market town of Clare, Suffolk's smallest town, set in the beautiful countryside of West Suffolk's Upper Stour Valley, brimming with history and nature just waiting to be explored.

Clare boasts a host of independent shops, cafes and pubs, along with the magnificent Wool Church and museum.

Winter Cottage is located just 5 minutes from the charming town of Long Melford known for its antique shops, art galleries, tea rooms and independent shops.

Just outside of the town is Kentwell Hall and the picture postcard village of Lavenham is also nearby.

Jump in the car for days out to places such as Castle Country Park, Go Ape Thetford, Framlingham Castle, Helmingham Hall and Open Gardens and Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens.

The cottage is situated near to, not one but two, designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Dedham Vale and Suffolk Coast and Heaths, so there is no shortage of scenic walks and hikes.

Towns within a short drive worth visiting include Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds or head to the coast and check out Aldeburgh, Southwold and Thorpeness; just don’t forget your bucket and spade.

A memorable family holiday awaits with a stay at Winter Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
