This magnificent timber framed cottage has been carefully restored to its former glory. The wonderful beams and massive inglenook fireplace create a lovely atmosphere for the lucky guests who want to stay in a historic house. As you enter the cottage into the main room, it is divided in two by a central open fire that faces the dining area to the right. Straight ahead is the main living room with its massive inglenook fireplace and roaring wood burner. This room looks out over the pretty cottage garden. Beyond here is a small coffee room and galley kitchen, which has direct access (completing the circle) back to the dining room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms; two kingsize doubles and one bunk bedroom with standard size single beds. The bunk room is suitable for two children please as it is a small room. There is an elegant bathroom next to the bedrooms with a lovely roll-top iron bath with a handheld shower attachment.
Water Cottage has a very pretty garden, which is completely enclosed. It has an old apple tree providing shade when you use the outside furniture to eat your meals in the garden.
The famous village of Lavenham, known as England’s best preserved medieval village, is just a few miles away and the area, immortalised by England’s renowned landscape painter, John Constable and known as Constable Country, is right beside the property. There are many great country pubs, special gastro pubs and some high quality restaurants in the nearby villages of Lavenham and Stoke-by-Nayland. This area is amazingly rural and untouched by city life. It has tiny single track lanes leading nowhere or to a pub, footpaths galore and tiny Medieval Villages where time seems to have stood still. If you are staying for more than a weekend then a day out at the unspoilt Suffolk Coast is always a lovely trip.
The nearby medieval villages of Long Melford, famed for its setting for the Lovejoy’s TV series, Nayland, sitting prettily on the river Stour, Polstead, with its bluebells woods and impressive views over the Box river valley are all close by and there are many more tiny villages with lovely walks and Pubs to explore. This is an area you can feel a million miles away from city life and really relax and enjoy just being part of. Beach 24 miles. Pub and restaurant 50 yards.
