Unique Holiday Cottages in Suffolk and Essex

Here at The Grove Cottages we have a large range of unique holiday cottages and to stay in one of these is a truly special experience. You are unlikely to find anything similar elsewhere, with each cottage having its own unique, individual features.

We are a boutique cottage agency and we specialize in cottages that have been lovingly restored; both on the inside and out. When you see a beautiful old exterior, you will be certain to find beautiful period interiors inside the cottage – not just modern renovations.

The Cottages

A favourite of ours is the unique holiday cottage Cobblers Cottage in Stoke by Nayland; a 15th Century Medieval Hall house which offers guests a really exceptional experience in a pretty Suffolk village. Full of fabulously rich antique furnishings, this cottage has been meticulously and lovingly restored in the best way possible.

If a pretty cottage near the coastline, with lots of original character and quirky features sounds like your type of holiday, then check out Laundry Cottage. Featured in the Sunday Times ‘Coolest 100 Cottages’ list, this unique holiday cottage sleeps up to 5 and is a real Jacobean dream with features such as an antique oak four poster bed, original beamed interiors and the antique Breton bed.

The Lovejoy Studio sleeps four and is tucked away into the picturesque village of Belchamp Walter. Right in the heart of the countryside this unique holiday cottage is a restored stable block from the 18th Century. The TV hit series ‘Lovejoy’ was filmed in this lovely coach house conversion and in the surrounding grounds of Belchamp Hall in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

Borleymere Shepherds Hut may appeal to you if are feeling like taking a break away with nature. One of our most unique holiday cottages, the Shepherds Hut offers up to two guests a lovely, peaceful stay within your own private nature reserve - with the idyllic scenery just one of many delightful features. The cottage is very cozy and romantic, it includes a full sized double bed, a luxurious shower cabin and a cozy wood-burning stove.

The majority of these unique holiday cottages are all dog friendly and all of them will offer you a truly special experience as endless time and effort has went into making them have the romantic, luxurious and unique feel that they have.
