English Country Cottages

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


Set in the picturesque Suffolk village of Cotton, this beautiful cottage is an ideal base in from which to explore this amazing county.

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. Each property enjoys its own seating area within the enclosed courtyard, and use of the hot tub shared between three cottages. Guests are welcomed to enjoy ’The Garden Walk’ a large enclosed paddock with garden bench seating, a great place to relax and to exercise your dog. 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.

    We had a very enjoyable week staying at this property, but there were some disappointments. I'll start with the not-so-good: 1. The shower is designed for short beanpoles - I grant, I'm not the smallest person, but I prefer showering without having to keep my arms down at my sides! 2. The floor around the bathroom creaks like an arthritic ship in a storm, making it impossible for one person to answer a midnight call without alerting the other (and the neighbours, I suspect, given we could hear their floor doing the same). 3. If the sofas were any lower, they'd be rugs, making the simple act of standing up a complex operation requiring careful planning. 4. The little notes everywhere, reminding us to clean up after ourselves, made my contrary brain want to do the exact opposite. My particular favourite was the one banning suitcases from the bed (which we are nevertheless directed to strip at the end of the stay) in favour of a luggage stand the size of a medium briefcase. 5. The 'welcome pack' consisted of a couple of teabags, sachets of instant coffee, the world's smallest packets of biscuits, and a few sachets of sugar in a small compartmented tray. It was all appreciated, and this is only a mild comment, but it felt far more like a travel or holiday inn room offering, rather than a welcome to what will be your home for the next week. I know this may sound harsh, but keep in mind, this property is rated five stars. We have stayed in many 4 and 3 star rated cottages over the years, often larger and more comfortable than this one. Little things, like posting photos that make the property look twice the size it actually is, and providing a television in the bedroom but failing to mention until you arrive that it's not connected to anything (so you can only use it for DVD playback), mean Cater doesn't live up to the expectations it sets. The cottage page proudly proclaims 'Luxury Collection', 'Washing Machine' and 'Welcome Pack' on its features list, so I believe it's fair to expect these things without caveats (it costs £5 for a single use of the shared washing machine, for example). I wanted to get all those out the way because I think they bear mentioning, but it's far from the whole story. On the plus side: 1. The location is beautiful - quiet, peaceful, and out of the way without being remote. The cottages are clearly signposted, with ample parking and a lovely shared courtyard area - there's even a comfy swing seat for a nice read in the evening sun and a collection of friendly cats doing the rounds if such is your thing. There are fields and footpaths around for walkers and dog-owners, and it's generally a lovely place to be. 2. Most of the equipment is very high quality and the cottage is pleasantly decorated. The furniture is comfortable and well-made, the television is excellent and even has a Blu-Ray player attached to it. There's a good little sound system, a Tassimo machine for making 'posh coffee' and a good dishwasher, cooker, and fridge-freezer. 3. There are plenty of lovely places within reasonable distances - we headed to the coast, animal-orientated days out, and National Trust properties (there's even an excellent cinema in Ipswitch!). Closer by, there are some beautiful villages, a wonderful tea room in a chilli farm, a decent Indian restaurant, and the Alder Carr farm shop/cafe, which was amazing. 4. You can buy eggs on-site, and there's a generous library of DVDs and books available for use. I hope this all doesn't sound too critical - my intention is to manage expectations rather than put anyone off. As I said, we had a lovely week at Cater cottage and I'm sure others will too - just take certain things with a pinch of salt.
