English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Enjoy the view from the property’s beautiful garden as it looks over this coastal countryside giving way to a peaceful setting.

Situated in the most idyllic coastal setting in the heart of the enchanting Suffolk countryside, these characterful and cosy, holiday cottages are situated on a large stud farm. Adjoining other properties, they have been renovated to a high standard and each has a private garden. Quiet and rural, the farm contains horses and natural birdlife, as well as superb country walks that can go as far as the beautiful heritage coast. Snape Maltings with its famous concert hall and wide range of shops and galleries is only 4 minutes’ drive, and the popular picturesque town of Orford, famous for its smoke house and harbour, is only 2½ miles. Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Framlingham, Dunwich and Southwold are all within easy driving distance. Shop and pub 2½ miles.

Large open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove and kitchen area. Twin bedroom (can be double on request). Bathroom with over-bath shower, toilet and underfloor heating. Spiral stairs to first floor: Double bedroom. Separate toilet.

    Absolutely lovely place to stay - if you like peace and quiet, countryside and animals, this is the place for you. Well equipped, comfortable and beautifully designed, but not immediately close to any amenities (not a problem for us but may be for others). Would highly recommend.

    What a great place to stay! The cottage is very comfortable with lovely views of the farm and surrounding countryside. It is about 2 miles from Orford which a place we love and have visited in the past. Would definitely recommend and hope to come again.

    A lovely cottage. Well thought out and beautifully presented. We stayed for a week in November and the cottage was lovely and warm. The surroundings are really quiet but you are not far from the amenities at Aldburgh or Saxmundham if you want them. The owners were very helpful. We will be going back.

    This property is very nearly perfect but doesn't get 10/10 due to one or two aspects that could be improved. However the lighting is absolutely excellent with many down-lighters and dimmer switches so one can read in comfort or have mood lighting at will. This was a big plus for us as we like to read novels in the evening when on holiday. Although the website states it is on a stud farm, in fact there are many more pigs around than horses but there was no smell or noise when we stayed (late September). The double bedroom is up stairs and has its own toilet but is let down by having no wardrobe and very limited open hanging space on one side of the bed. Installing the same on the other side of the bed would help. There is a large bathroom / shower downstairs and a twin bedroom (which is nowhere near as nice as the double but which has a huge wardrobe). Two improvements (again minor) could be made downstairs: One is a very noisy fridge freezer which is actually just inside the lounge area. It would be so much better in the kitchen / diner area. The other is the spiral staircase which is a very nice feature but which has obviously been made from a kit and which wobbles and creaks when used. It's safe enough but it's such a shame when the rest of the property has been built and furnished with high quality materials. There is a very nice private patio area with garden chairs and table outside with a safe enclosed garden. The surrounding area is very rural with the nearest supermarkets in Saxmundham. The nearest Post Office, paper shop, etc we found was in Orford which is a pretty village with a quay. If, like us, you enjoy country walks then there are plenty. One thing to watch is the almost complete lack of mobile phone signal at the property (a plus point for some!) but the owners have thoughtfully provided a decent wireless internet connection which means you are not completely cut off from the outside world. I'd seriously consider staying there again and at any time of the year as it is double glazed and well heated.

    A great cottage with some interesting features in a quiet location. Spiral staircase looked great, a little squeaky in use and wood burner took the chill off the autumn evenings. Nice surprise of a bottle of wine and biscuits upon arrival. Only real issue for us revolved around privacy, as with curtains open, to let in the light, anyone was able to look straight through the open plan downstairs which was disconcerting when people were accessing out-buildings a matter of a few yards from the windows.

    Barn Owl cottage was fantastic, on a Stud farm in the middle of the countryside. It was a quiet and relaxing break, ideal for relaxing and getting away from it all. It is a great location to explore Suffolk by car.
