This is a really lovely cottage, so romantic with its big log fire but slightly less expensive.

Rose Cottage is a very welcoming place to come home to after exploring Suffolk's beautiful countryside and tiny Medieval villages and is one price band down from our standard cottages for a couple.

Description

Rose Cottage is a really lovely and romantic cottage with its big log fire, but slightly less expensive than our normal rate for a Cottages for a couple.


The Cottage

  • A very welcoming place to come home to after exploring Suffolk's beautiful countryside and tiny Medieval villages. It was once part of the early 1700's dairy and the front of the building is built in the unique ‘soldier’ style of bricking, forming part of the large double-quadrangle that is the old Grove Farm.
     
  • This is where I am based and where my other 5 cottages are that makes up the Old Grove Farm: This is where it all started and where the template for all the cottages on my website was developed! Guests to Snow Cottage, Rose Cottage and Dons Barn walk through a small small sunny herb garden to reach their front doors.  We have put a breakfast table there for these guests to use and the herbs are also there to be used.
     
  • Rose Cottage is single storey with lots of light and overlooks a small sunny herb garden & breakfast patio, as well as leading directly out to the orchard gardens. It is an ideal little getaway, being a romantic and cosy single storey cottage, sleeping a couple with large gardens to roam in, ample off road parking and lovely countryside walks straght from the cottage.
     
  • You can enter the cottage from the orchard front garden or from the sunny herb garden that you see below, the main room has a beautiful old wood floor, an impressively high vaulted wooden ceiling with pretty old soft redbrick walls, distressed pink lime washed lime plaster and a lovely big raised log fire.
     
  • At the far end of the cottage there is a well appointed hand crafted kitchen with a belfast sink and oak work tops. Beyond this is a cosy bedroom and and bathroom with a massive easy access shower. With the cleverly placed external and internal windows make this a sunny cottage and bring light into every room.
     
  • This Cottage also has benefits for those who need single storey accomodation because of moderate limited mobility as it is all one one level. The shower is big and easy to get into and we can arragnge for you to park in the inner courtyard, so you can step right onto the footpath leading to Snow Cottage - please do call us to discuss this further and we can also supply you with a set of access dimensions and step heights.
     
  • Dog owners please note there is an acre of dog excercise Orchard and meadow at RosCottage - plus footpaths directly from the cottage into open countryside with a lovely dog friendly pub just a 15 minute walk away.
     
  • Along with 'The Old Monkey' this is a slightly more affordable option but where you can still stay in style and enjoy Suffolks hidden treasures.
 

The Location

  • We are just outside a tiny hamlet and three fields away from The Edwardstone 'White Horse' our local CAMRA Pub, which also brews its own excellent Cider and Beer - putting them to good use on its live music nights. Cycle routes run past the cottage, and the prettiest of Suffolk famous Medieval Villages like Lavenham, Long Melford, Polsted and Nayland surrounding it.
     
  • There are bicycles freely available to guests and you can even hire one of my Canoes to explore the lovely river Stour where John Constable painted 'The Haywain'

    Lovely few days - a wonderful cottage. This is the second cottage we have been to on the Grove site and both are so good.

Everything needed for a relaxing enjoyable stay, all catered for especially dogs which is a bonus and so hard to find.

    We came to Rose Cottage for 2 days of rest and relaxation to get away from every day stress of work. What a wonderful choice we made!

    As soon as you come into Rose Cottage you relax! Not sure what it is but it could be the nicely lit beams, the distressed pink walls, the wooden floors with rugs, the wonderful new bathroom, plenty of warm radiators and the unusual waist high log fire to name but a few! It's a quiet location amid glorious Suffolk countryside and we love it all.

  • Monday, 19th of December, 2016, Riosin:

    A little glimpse of country living heaven, Rose Cottage is a dream come true. We walked in to a warm cosy glow of soft lighting, lit candles, and the dulcet tones of Miles Davis on the sound system. We took a deep breath and felt all the stresses of our other world drift away...

  • Friday, 9th of September, 2016, Andrew :

    Great location and lots to see close by - nice place to chill.

    Excellent and very welcoming, could not be faulted.

  • Monday, 6th of June, 2016, Jo:

    This place is absolute perfection - the tiny, homely cottage looks like it's straight out of the pages of Country Living. It is beautiful and well appointed and a lazy breakfast in the sunshine in the herb garden is quality time well spent. Cycling the country lanes to the pubs, stopping to buy local honey and home grown strawberries is what a June day looks like in my dreams. This place makes it a reality!

  • Friday, 3rd of June, 2016, Paul & Penny:

    Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. We found the cottage to be a home from home to strike out in any direction to enjoy all that Suffolk has to offer.

    We loved the cottage, very cosy, relaxing and comfortable. Our visits around the area were easy to find and the local pubs had good food.

  • Friday, 29th of April, 2016, Anne & Don:

    I loved it on the website and wasn't disappointed. A dear little cottage all beams and a log fire (and no cobwebs!). The welcome basket was a delightful addition. The bed is probably the most comfortable we have slept in and we rent cottages twice a year. If anyone is looking for a little cottage for a few days away, you couldn't do much better than this. We loved it. Mark - you are a perfect "host" - there for anything we needed but unobtrusive.

  • Sunday, 10th of April, 2016, Jess:

    A wonderful house in a superb location for getting away from real life! Does everything it says on the tin - and more! Will strongly recommend to family, friends, loved ones ... even strangers! Will be back again.

  • Friday, 18th of March, 2016, Katy:

    This was my first time staying at Grove Cottages. I really need a relaxing break to recharge and I wasn't disappointed. The cottage lived up to my expectations and I really appreciated the extra little things. The welcome pack was great, the shower was amazing, the bed super comfortable and it was great laying on the enormous sofa watching the fire!

  • Friday, 11th of March, 2016, Tony & Sue:

    We have been very busy with our own business since Christmas and needed to get away for a few days to relax. Rose Cottage has fulfilled that aim admirably. A bolt hole we will be pleased to come back to for relaxation.

  • Sunday, 6th of March, 2016, Geoff & Hugo:

    Another wonderful, relaxing and restorative dose of Rose Cottage.We are now ready to face the world again.

  • Friday, 29th of May, 2015, Penny:

    We have had a relaxing but very interesting short stay in an area of the country, we did not know. So many National Trust places to justify the annual membership!! Great cottage with all comforts provided - delicious bacon, eggs and break in welcome basket. The dog has had a wonderful time too. Thank you very much.

  • Friday, 15th of May, 2015, Danusia:

    Lovely cosy cottage with an eclectic mix of furniture and design which makes it a special place to stay. The garden and facilities are great. This particular area in Suffolk is really beautiful with lovely villages. We mainly came to walk and had some great days. Lots of nice pubs and places to eat.

  • Sunday, 15th of March, 2015, Josh:

    We have had a super chilled relaxing weekend at Rose Cottage. The surrounding area is lovely, we had a great walk to the White Horse and met some lovely people. Such a nice way to detach yourself from the hectic working week. Thank you.

  • Friday, 6th of March, 2015, Geoff:

    Very comfortable and welcoming as always - a great break!
