English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Beautifully converted, this home is the ideal getaway in a tranquil spot filled with fantastic facilities for everyone to enjoy.

Nestling in 15 acres of ancient meadows, woodland and orchard on the slopes of the Alde valley, these three holiday cottages have been sensitively converted from the outbuildings of nearby Cransford Hall. Featuring an Edwardian walled garden, the grounds are a refuge for a variety of wild birds, including owls. Of individual style and character, the cottages boast exceptionally well-equipped kitchens and fittings, furnishings and fabrics of the highest quality. Each has its own private garden area with furniture, all enjoy shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, pool table, table tennis and a children’s area with toys and games. There are excellent walks, too, and facilities for croquet and other lawn games. The owner, who lives nearby, is a gourmet cook and offers evening meals for delivery to the cottages (only by prior direct arrangement). Within walking distance is Bruisyard with its Saxon church. Framlingham (4 miles) is a small market town with shops, restaurants and inns; in its picturebook setting, the 12th-century castle dominates the town. Sutton Hoo, with its visitor centre, is just a 20-minute drive away. Aldeburgh (about 12 miles) is popular for sailing and famous for its music festival and concerts at Snape Maltings. The coastal area is an excellent one for bird-watching, particularly at the RSPB reserve of Minsmere (10 miles). Sports centre, golf and riding all within 20 minutes’ drive.

Set in the corner of the walled garden with its own south-facing patio, this detached, single-storey cottage has been extremely well furnished and equipped. Large living/dining room with wood-burning stove and French doors to patio. Arch to well-fitted kitchen with small breakfast bar. Steps down to double bedroom. Single bedroom. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet.

    A very nice country cottage in a lovely setting. It backs into a large walled garden which is very well maintained. There is also a very nice woodland walk and open fields. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need.

    The holiday cottage and its grounds were beautiful. Everything we needed was in this clean and comfortable cottage, which lead to a care free stay. The owners were helpful and on hand if needed. A lovely welcome from the owners , to show us around and the scones/jam on arrival was the icing on the cake.

    Beautiful location and very close to attractions while secluded away. Very relaxing holiday in this quiet spot. Our only gripe was that it was quite cold in the cottage even with the storage heaters on, unless the fireplace was in use and that the kitchen where we took our meals (didn't want to risk using the carpeted dining room with a 4 year old) was not heated. We paid £30 for the electricity bill and bought £20 worth of logs externally for the week.
