English Country Cottages

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


Columbia simply has something to suit everyone’s tastes as there are plenty of facilities in the estate and beautiful walks nearby.

If you are looking for that extra comfort after a day of exploring or a long walk, these 17th-century cottages with luxurious soft furnishings and floor to ceiling windows, make an ideal romantic location for couples. The three cottages offer a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Each has been restored to the highest standard, brimming with character, boasting open plan living spaces with contemporary décor and all your home from home comforts. Nestled deep in the Suffolk countryside, located just outside the charming village of Cotton. A footpath leads from door into the village, having a local pub with roaring fire, a great place to sample the local ales and enjoy traditional good pub food. There is also a footpath leading from the garden, where you can walk through the surrounding countryside and enjoy the views. Within 15 minutes is the local farmers market for fresh and local produce. Why not try before you buy, the café serves an excellent breakfast made up of its local produce.
The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers or cyclists wishing to meander through the sleepy and picturesque villages. Follow the tourist route onto the Suffolk Heritage Coast, just 45 minutes away. Enjoy all the famous coastline attractions, including the charming town of Southwold with its lighthouse and colourful beach huts, Aldeburgh with galleries, shops, restaurants, fish and chips, and the fantastic RSPB coastal nature reserve at Minsmere. The market town of Stowmarket is 7 miles, for supermarkets and train station, having a regular service to the fine cities of Cambridge and Norwich. The historic market town of Bury St Edmunds is 17 miles away, with prestigious shops and an award-winning market, ideal for some retail therapy. Well worth a day visit are the villages of Lavenham and Orford, 30 minutes drive. Beach 25 miles. Shop 1¾ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Great holiday! Apart from the few steps in living room/kitchen it worked very well having kids there with the out door and indoor play areas and pool on site. A bit noisy for any going to bed earlier as no doors between living room/kitchen/dining room but would definitely stay again!

    Although nice and clean the interior was a bit 'tired'. In particular I found the mattress the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on. This resulted in a very bad night's asleep, every night, waking up with a painful stiff back every morning!

    Lovely cottage with a great swimming pool. The living room was cold but the rest of the house was lovely and warm. Definitely recommend this for families

    Everything was brilliant - very well equipped and very kind and friendly owners. We arrived to find a plate of mince pies and a welcome letter. Swimming pool and Sauna a real bonus. Great Christmas had by all We appreciated the recycling bins and bottle bins too - great not to have to drag all our rubbish home with us! The only thing was the two dishwashers didn't work properly - but that is easily rectified I'm sure!

    We had such a fabulous stay at the Columbia, large enough to house all four family Groups comfortably. Facilities were superb for cooking, and the games room and pool were perfect for entertaining the children and adults alike! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to our friends!
