For a unique holiday experience, Lock Cottage is unbeatable. Surrounded by water and accessed via a footbridge, this delightful, detached lock keeper’s cottage is an oasis of peace and tranquillity, yet is in the heart of the medieval village of Nayland on the Suffolk and Essex border. Built in 1805 with a later extension, the cottage is one of two remaining lock keeper’s cottages from the Stour Navigation which allowed barges to travel from Sudbury to the sea. The setting of the cottage is truly breathtaking with a delightful garden and the River Stour tumbling over a weir, there is plenty of wildlife to see with kingfishers, swans, herons and sometimes an otter on the weir. There is also the opportunity to fish in the lock pool, or venture out in the canoe and rowing boat provided at the property (life jackets provided). With views across the water towards the open countryside of the Dedham Vale AONB, it is hard to believe that just a 55-yard walk along the tow path leads to the village amenities. The surrounding area is a delight to explore, there are many footpaths in the village and golf is available at nearby Stoke-by-Nayland (3 miles). Flatford Mill and Dedham Village, in the heart of Constable Country, are a short drive away whilst keen gardeners may enjoy a visit to Beth Chatto’s Garden. Nearby Colchester, famous for being the oldest town in England, has a castle and museum set in attractive parkland that stretches down to the River Colne, a zoo and an interesting range of shops, restaurants, galleries and pubs. For a day by the sea, guests can choose between the sunshine coast of Essex at Frinton-on-Sea, or the nearby Heritage coastline of Suffolk where the beaches at Felixstowe, Aldeburgh, Southwold or Walberswick can be enjoyed. Shop 50 yards, pub 300 yards.

    Idyllic spot with stunning views. Peace and nature all around. The cottage itself is full of character, comfortable and warm. It would be difficult to beat this cottage for a family break

    The most beautiful location. We were three artists meeting up to paint together. The cottage is old world almost entirely surrounded by water with a weir and wonderful views from a very pretty wild garden. The sound of running water is very relaxing, There is wonderful wild life including a family of swans which frequently visited us. The cottage is warm and comfortable with a log burner and an open fire in the large comfortable sitting room for the evenings. Parking is on the road which wasn’t difficult but you must be prepared to have to cross a wooden footbridge and take your belongings along a footpath to get the cottage. A very handy trolley is provided. We would thorough recommend Lock Cottage for a really quiet getaway. The area is lovely with plenty to go and see. There are also great pubs with lovely food. Our favourites were The Marlborough in Dedham and The Anchor in Nayland itself.
