If you are looking for a romantic holiday cottage with an open log fire just look at the photos of the wonderful Inglenook fireplace; this 15th Century Medieval Hall House really is 5 star luxury...

Lovingly and meticulously restored using traditional materials and original techniques, this beautiful cottage transports you back to medieval England without depriving you of modern comfort.

Cottage Walk Through

  • Cobblers Cottage was built in 1420 but it was not until April 2003 when Sara and Kevin started the ambitious project of restoring a derelict village cottage, that a rare and historically important Artisan’s 'Hall House' was uncovered. A historical survey commissioned by an eminent architectural historian is on view in the cottage and the project was open to public display and followed in magazine publications.

  • Situated on Stoke Road, Cobblers Cottage has off road parking for one car. You enter to be welcomed by a homely cottage kitchen with traditional flagstone floor and dining area for four. Fully equipped, the kitchen includes a large gas and electric range cooker, microwave and dishwasher. Leading off from the kitchen is a large sunny lobby with a massive mullion window overlooking an enclosed terraced garden.

  • A stable door opens onto a patio area with garden furniture and barbecue. At the bottom of the garden is a leafy arch which leads into a cottage vegetable patch and herb garden, this is for the use of guests.

  • The sitting room is dominated by a wealth of exposed beams and the fantastic original ‘working’ inglenook fireplace. There is a huge Knoll sofa, which allows you to curl up and relax in front of the open log fire. The room is carefully furnished with antiques, Persian textiles and carpets on a Suffolk brick floor. Discreetly concealed is a LCD TV, DVD and CD stereo. 

  • Where ever possible Sara has added layers of texture and colour to Cobblers Cottage with a collection of hand made rugs and textiles from her shop ‘The Rug and Carpet Studio’ in nearby Long Melford. Guests at Cobblers Cottage are offered a 10% discount at Sara's shop.

  • There is also a cloakroom/utility room with washer/dryer and Belfast sink.

  • Off from the sitting room is a small library tucked under the stairs. You ascend the narrow winding staircase into a medieval vaulted ceiling bedchamber with a massive arched tie beam and fine octagonal crown post. Uniquely this impressive crown post has been re-used from an earlier building of the mid 14th century.

  • Part the drapes at the top of the stairs and you enter a romantic bedroom of medieval splendour. Furnished with a fine antique bed and French armoire the room is decorated with lime wash of the original colour and sumptuous fabrics.

  • Through oak panelling you enter a lovely traditional bathroom containing rolled top slipper bath with shower attachment, loo, basin and heated towel rail all under a vaulted-tented ceiling. Staying in Cobblers is a truly unique experience and a very romantic holiday cottage to spend time in and relax.


The Location

  • Nayland is a beautiful Suffolk village with a great riverside pub. The pub is called The Anchor and is just a 5 minute stroll from Cobblers Cottage. It serves good beer and has a good menu if you want to eat out in the evening.
  • There are some wonderful old fashioned village shops and some beautiful countryside for walking and exploring The River Stour, The Pilgrims Way and Dedham Vale; which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  • There are many beautiful walks into the countryside straight from the cottage.
