Farm Cottage is a charming unspoilt farm worker’s cottage dating back to the late 17th century. This romantic little cottage has a very contented and peaceful atmosphere about it. As you warm your toes by the log fire you can imagine how it has been used and loved over the centuries. Snug, cosy and bright with views across the orchard and fields in a delightful part of Suffolk, with an acre of orchard to exercise your dog and walks across the fields straight from the door. Farm Cottage is situated at the end of the Old Grove Farm buildings with its own entrance down a short footpath onto the road. It retains all of its original simple homeliness and charm, with sunny windows looking out onto the beautiful orchard gardens, which catch the dazzling evening sunsets. The handmade kitchen with its lovely butler sink and reclaimed wooden cupboards, curl discreetly round the back of the chimney breast. The main room has a handy utility room off, ideal for drying wet dogs after a long walk. It also has a cosy open log fire and a comfy sofa to enjoy. Three windows on two aspects make this a very sunny room and add to the romantic atmosphere of this cosy Suffolk countryside cottage. Hidden behind an old cupboard door in the ancient wood panelled wall is a staircase winding up to the two bedrooms and shower bathroom, and glazed pigeon holes bring extra light into the stairway. The pretty master bedroom has the original broad elm wooden floor which was traditionally painted black, and a comfy kingsize bed.

You can enter the cottage through the gardens, from the large courtyard, or from the garden gate on the tiny lane. There is a small herb garden off the big courtyard where you are welcome to take any herbs you wish. There’s also a lovely mature orchard garden at the front of the cottage which you overlook and where guests can laze around under the apple and pear trees and have a barbecue in summer. There’s even a table with chairs and a bench onto the grass directly outside Farm Cottage for you to enjoy watching the sunsets.

The Old Grove Farm is set in open countryside and made up of brick buildings in an E-shape which were a farm worker’s cottage, winnowing barns, dairies and bakeries. It has a large central courtyard with a long barn creating a double quadrangle. The buildings are now converted into 6 lovely holiday cottages with individual entrances from different areas and surrounded by gardens and orchards, affording guests a high degree of privacy. While being right in the countryside, Farm Cottage is not cut off from civilisation and a 5 – 10-minute car drive will get you to shops, supermarkets, cafés, swimming pools, museums, the Quay Theatre and the River Stour. There are good pubs all around and the local which is ¾ mile walk across the fields has its own Macro Brewery and a selection of the best beers and ciders you can come across.
