    The accommodation is modern and comfortable. The description is accurate. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Hosts were always available to assist should anything arise. The cottage and well kept farmyard/garden was a particularly enjoyable space to spend our obligatory ‘self quarantine’. We especially enjoyed watching the ducks from our sofa view as well as the horses enjoying some much needed time outdoors when it wasn’t raining. There were welcome flowers, biscuits, milk along with coffee, tea and a few condiments available when we arrived. We also had some fresh eggs from the chickens available to us as we hadn’t managed to sort our breakfast needs before arriving and we so appreciated this! The bed was comfortable and it was quiet at night, which was very restful. We enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend this property.

Sudbury 5.4 miles.

In a quiet, rural village location on the Essex/Suffolk border this beautifully converted Granary sits in the grounds of the owners home.

Internally it has a wonderful open-plan living space with the a fully fitted kitchen, housing all the appliances you could possibly need for a weekend away in the countryside.

The dining area is a cosy space where you can dine together as a family, or plan the day's events.

Gather together in the sitting area and enjoy the views over the extensive grounds.

There is a ground floor twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a spacious first floor double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower over.

Outside there is an enclosed private patio area with seating an ideal spot to sit and enjoy a morning coffee while planning some of the many things to do in the area.

The outdoor space includes a wonderful pond for wildlife and is a perfect spot for watching the sun going down.

The area is wonderful for exploring and ideal for those more sporty types.

Cyclists can enjoy a network of quiet roads linking pretty, historic villages such as Lavenham, Long Melford, Dedham Vale, Flatford (Constable Country) and Bury St Edmunds to name a few.

About the location


Colchester 15.5 miles; Dedham Vale 11.2 miles

This small market town in Suffolk boasts pretty half-timbered houses, characterful sloping roofs and is home to the famous painter Thomas Gainsborough. Take a stroll along Gainsborough Street and down a little alleyway where you will find Gainsborough House, his birthplace and where he resided for many of his younger years. In this modest, late-medieval brick house is a marvellous collection of some of his finest work to be admired. Resting in the Stour Valley in an Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty, the surrounding majestic countryside of Sudbury is what inspired most of his paintings. Stroll along the River Stour and soak up the tranquil atmosphere or meander through The Croft with its green lawns and pretty wildlife, a lovely spot to take the kids to feed the ducks. Enjoy the beautiful architecture in the area, Sudbury presents a combination of Victorian terrace houses, Georgian manor houses and medieval timber framed Halls. Belle Vue Park is a lovely spot for kicking back and watching the world go by and there is an array of shops in the town to delight in. This ancient market town is only fifteen miles from Colchester where you will discover Colchester Castle, an 11th century edifice and manicured grounds, Hollytrees Museum showcasing local history exhibits, Colchester Zoo and the stunning High Woods Country Park. Sudbury is also not too far from the coast so why not take a day trip and explore the 350 miles of stunning shoreline in Essex, it is one of the most diverse places of surprising, natural wild beauty. This is a delightful town and a spectacular location to base your family holiday.
