Description

Farm Cottage is a very cosy and romantic holiday cottage set in the countryside, and only 90 minutes from London, full of light and character.  It is priced as a standard cottage for a couple but has the advantage of having a small second bedroom with a nice single bed.

Well behaved Dogs are always welcome, please refer to All About Bringing Pets for charges, rules and how this cottage may suit your pet.


The Cottage

  • Farm is an old 1720's farm worker's cottage, situated at the end of the The Old Grove Farm buildings. It retains all of its original simple homeliness and charm with sunny windows looking out onto the beautiful Orchard gardens, which catch the dazzling evening sunsets. 
     
  • The hand made kitchen with its lovely butler sink and reclaimed wood cupboards curl discreetly round the back of the chimney, providing a gas hob, electric grill and oven cooking. The main room has a handy utility room off it, ideal for drying off wet doggies after a long walk. 
     
  • The main room itself has a beautiful open log fire and a comfy sofa to enjoy it from, windows on two aspects make this a very sunny location and adds to the romantic atmosphere of this cosy countryside cottage. 
     
  • Hidden behind an old cupboard door in the old wood panelled wall is a staircase winding up to the bedrooms, glazed pigeon holes bring extra light into the stair well. The pretty master bedroom has the original broad elm wood floor which was traditionally painted black and the big old iron bed that we dug out of the vegetable patch and restored at a stupid cost just for the history of it!
     
  • The second small single bedroom is adjacent plus a little shower room. Farm Cottage was originally the farm workers cottage and makes up part of the large double quadrangle of buildings that is The Old Grove Farm; where I am and where my other 5 cottages: Snow, Rose, The Bakery, Dons Barn and Orchard Cottage are. This is where it all started and where the template for all the other cottages on my website was developed.

 

Outside

  • This pet friendly cottage includes a large private car park at the rear of the barns, which has another acre of pretty Orchard next to it. This can be used as a dog exercise area, meaning dog owners don't have to walk all bleary eyed down the country lanes first thing in the morning.
     
  • Dog owners please note there is an acre of dog excercise Orchard and meadow at Farm Cottage - plus footpaths directly from the cottage into open countryside with a lovely dog friendly pub just a 15 minute walk away.
     
  • Bikes are provided for guests free of charge.
     
  • Farm Cottage has a very contented and peaceful atmosphere, in a wonderful part of Suffolk. There is a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer and there are 12 bikes for the free use of the guests, with the South Suffolk Cycle Route running past the cottage. We also usually have some eggs from our own bantams and chickens available.

A very generous welcome basket full of goodies (much appreciated) and masses of information, maps etc about the area. The cottage is warm, comfortable and cosy. A perfect retreat to return to after a day spent sightseeing, walking - or maybe just lazing in the lovely garden.

  • Friday, 21st of August, 2015, Jane:

    Astonishingly quiet, can only hear owls at night - the quietest cottage we've ever had! Our dog loved the orchard - as did we. The space, freedom and simplicity were just what we needed. The cottage is endearingly idiosyncratic and full of thoughtful touches. No general "English Country Cottages" regulation items, but everything well thought out.

  • Sunday, 26th of July, 2015, Mikaela & Alex:

    Extremely relaxing weekend. Good homely feel and the White Horse pub is a must visit! We will be back to this little slice of heaven!

  • Saturday, 4th of July, 2015, Rebecca:

    Wonderfully peaceful time. Beautiful setting, comfy beds and great customer service. Would have loved another night or two. Very restful.

  • Friday, 25th of July, 2014, Patricia & Michael:

    Grove Cottages are that "something special". Soothing and calm when you need a break, a romantic special hideaway. Tastefully furnished throughout to the highest standard. We often stay in country cottages and at the first chance of a break, this easily comes top of the list - a class of it's own!

  • Tuesday, 1st of July, 2014, Matt:

    Beautiful, tranquil, rustic, chic stay was all too short!

    A beautiful peaceful weekend in your gorgeous cottage – just what we needed.

  • Thursday, 27th of March, 2014, Mary:

    Grove Cottages expect very high standards from the owners of cottages listed so you will not be disappointed with the cottage of your choice! They are so individual that choosing is very difficult!

  • Sunday, 23rd of March, 2014, Elizabeth:

    Lovely spot – peaceful! Welcome basket most welcome! A plus for us was the bikes – made for a good trip on the quiet comfy loves.

  • Monday, 20th of January, 2014, Fiona:

    An ideal place to listen inwards while walking or cycling among the flat green fields. Then very lovely to come back to the warm (heating is excellent), elaborately furnished and perfectly lit Rose Cottage. The old wooden floor, beautiful carpets, radio, candles and table lamps make the space very cosy. Ah and a great welcoming! Lovely place, lovely people.

  • Saturday, 18th of January, 2014, Lettice:

    Not sure if we want too many people discovering this absolute gem! Rural bliss for everyone, dog, children and adults, NOT to be missed. Blazing fires in picture perfect countryside... The welcome basket and supplies were exceptional. A generous and thoughtful touch to make you feel at home and connected to the country, also very practical as we could only bring so much in the way of supplies. Log fires were a high spot AND having country walks straight from the front door was ideal with 3 children and a dog. The cottage is very well thought out and your hospitality with the bikes, animals and local knowledge really takes Grove Cottages into a league of its own.

  • Friday, 3rd of January, 2014, Neil:

    A relaxing, restorative New Year break after a tough year – just what we needed!

  • Monday, 30th of December, 2013, Natalie:

    Our second time staying here, we loved staying in The Bakery on our first visit, so thought we would bring the kids to stay for the Christmas season. Once again had a wonderful time, fire was going 10 minutes after arriving and didn’t stop the whole time. Fab. Although the cottage was a little small, it is perfectly formed for a lovely cosy stay. Thanks again. See you in the summer.

  • Sunday, 8th of December, 2013, Panos & Gloria:

    Had a fantastic time. The Children liked the cats, fire place & winding country lanes the most.

    Charming, well stocked cottage. Beautiful grounds and welcoming hosts. We will return for a longer stay next time!

  • Friday, 4th of October, 2013, Margaret:

  • Friday, 27th of April, 2012, Gary+Donna:

    Like walking into a Constable paining – our cottage was the perfect compliment to the idyllic Suffolk county selling surrounding it. Each morning we had our fire going and sat with our farm bread and bacon watching the ducks, moorhens and pageants gathering their own breakfast. One duck friend went missing for two days, only to reaper with 5 little ducklings in tow!

  • Sunday, 2nd of October, 2011, Gill and Malcolm:

    Batteries charged for another 3 months! See you in February 2012. The only Olympic events I want to watch is 1) the high jump - which moorhen can get to the roof of the bird table 2) Sprint - which duck gets to the bread first and the marathon - how far can I walk on the footpaths before I hear a car or have anything disturb the tranquillity.

    Brilliant weekend - would love to move here !! Sad to be going!!

  • Sunday, 28th of March, 2010, Gill :

    It's so exhausting at 'The Grove' feeding ducks, watching the superb Suffolk sunsets, glorious walks and sitting next to a log fire finding new treasures to seek out from Marks guide - seven years of visits - never grow tired of it!

    Wonderful. Our second visit to The Grove, a different cottage this time as we brought our daughter (Gun Cottage) and our stay was every bit as pleasant as our stay at The Bakery. A few days in the calm of Suffolk and the gentle pace of life in the cottages and we feel refreshed and renewed. Thank you all at The Grove Cottages. We will be back.

  • Friday, 6th of November, 2009, Liz:

    I can't tell you how much this 'Me' time has meant. On my first night here I stepped out of Gun Cottage and stood looking up at the stars - Chicken Soup for the soul. I don't remember the last time I woke up, decided what I'd like to do and just went and did it! It's been a relaxing, battery charging; ignoring the clock, fun time and I can't thank you enough for your kindness.

  • Friday, 13th of February, 2009, Adam:

    Gun Cottage far outweighed our expectations. It was the dream short break in every respect. This to us was how self-catering should be done. The accommodation was better than advertised. Please speak to our employer to give us more days off to visit you on a regular basis!

  • Friday, 30th of January, 2009, Ed & Lisa:
