English Country Cottages

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


With its own unique charm and character, this holiday home enjoys a beautiful location on the slopes of the Alde Valley.

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.

Offering convenient accommodation all on one floor, this detached cottage has its own patio. Large, comfortable living room with south-facing windows overlooking orchard , dining area and wood-burning stove. Arch to fully fitted and equipped Spanish-chestnut kitchen. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Full-size bunk bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet. Spacious shower room with toilet.

    Nice cottage in lovely surroundings but perhaps a bit too remote, particularly with respect to communicating with the outside world. Whilst its nice to "get away from it all", this was perhaps too much for the modern, "connected", world. (EG No mobile signal and somewhat flaky wifi only available in the games room - which is attached to the main house about 100yards away.)

    Came back for the 2nd year and loved it, the first time we've ever been back to the same place twice to that says something in itself! You won't beat the location and the grounds, plus the play room if the weather isn't too good.

    Lovely location and beautiful gardens. Cottage itself was clean and tidy but probably could do with a little updating. No Wi Fi or phone signal in cottage, but overall very satisfied

    Really lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Well equipped and perfect for our weekend stay. Lovely to have a roaring wood burning fire - which helped as it was a bit chilly at times! Access to the gorgeous walled gardens and woods made for lovely walks and a fun Easter egg hunt! Really enjoyed our stay and would go back again as Suffolk has lots to offer.
