Award : 4 Star GOLD VisitEngland 

 Rose Cottage is a really lovely and romantic cottage with its cosy log fire

Superfast Broadband is supplied to this cottage. 


Cottage Walk Through

The Cottage

Rose Cottage is single storey with a high arched ceiling exposing all the ancient beams up to the apex of the roof underlining the historic and cosy atmosphere of this much loved cottage.

The Cottage 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 with lovely countryside walks straight from the cottage.

You can enter the cottage from the orchard front garden or from the sunny herb garden, 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 hand crafted kitchen with gas hob, electric oven and a Belfast sink set into an oak work top.

Beyond this is a cosy bedroom and a luxury marble bathroom with a massive walk in shower. 

The cleverly placed external and internal windows make this a sunny cottage and bring light into every room.

Rose Cottage also has benefits for those who need single storey accommodation because of moderate limited mobility as it is all on one level. The shower is big and easy to get into with no steps, curtains or shower doors. If anyone books with limited mobility then they are welcome to park in our inner courtyard directly in front of the short pathway to Rose Cottage.

Please do call us to discuss this further and see our access statement with a set of access dimensions and step heights.

Rose Cottage is 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 (ex).

Dog owners please note there is an acre of dog exercise Orchard and meadow at The Bakery along with a pretty Dog washing station for muddy doggies including white fluffy towels ! – plus  there are footpaths directly from the cottage into open countryside with a lovely dog friendly pub just a 15 minute walk away.

The Gardens

 You enter the cottage through a small herb garden, where you are welcome to take any herbs you wish.

There is a lovely mature orchard garden at the front of the cottage where guests can laze around under the apple and pear trees and have a BBQ in Summer, we have created a private ‘snug’ out of woven willow fencing on a patio outside Rose Cottage and put out a table with chairs in it for you to enjoy watching the gardens in more privacy if you wish.

We have a large central courtyard where you can unload your car when you arrive, in the courtyard there is a big open sided historic ‘Cart Lodge’ barn were guests can pull out a BBQ or sit in the barn which is lit with fairy lights and candles and watch the night skies.

There is also a barn with bikes for guests to use, a big coal bunker and log pile for guests to purchase extra fuel after the complimentary basket of logs and bucket of coal has been used (don’t worry the cottage is warm and cosy with its central heating alone).

Behind the ‘Cart Lodge’ Barn here is also an acre of Orchard and lawn with a pond at the back of the property where I have established some peaceful private areas with tables and chairs or benches and where I have planted some very rare apple trees. This is an ideal dog exercise area. Next to it is a large off road car park.

You can walk directly from the gardens onto footpaths leading to the Church, Pub or circular countryside walks.

The South Suffolk Cycle route runs past the cottage and I provide bikes for free.


The Location

The Old Grove Farm, is set in open countryside and made up of brick buildings in a E shape which were a farm workers cottage, winnowing barns, dairy’s and bakeries. 

It has a large central courtyard with a long barn creating a double quadrangle, the buildings are now converted into 6 lovely holiday cottages with individual entrances from different areas and surrounded by gardens and Orchards, affording guests a high degree of privacy. It is where our business started and where we are based.

While being right in the countryside, we are not cut off from civilisation and a 5 – 10 minute car drive will get you to shops and supermarkets, café’s, swimming pools. Museums, the Quay Theatre and the river Stour.

There are good Pubs are all around us and our local which is ¾ mile walk across the fields from us has its own Macro Brewery and a selection of the best beers and ciders you can come across: The White Horse Edwardstone.

Rose Cottage is a very special place that is much loved by guests and perfect for a romantic escape to the lovely Suffolk countryside.


Green Credentials

This building dates back to 1700 and is renovated and repaired with traditional and reclaimed original material’s like the ancient reclaimed wood, doors and beams, traditional lime plaster and paints, original Suffolk White floor bricks, locally sourced timber and locally fired or reclaimed bricks.

We operate our own Clear Water Treatment plant which biologically cleans all our waste water to such a pure degree that it can be discharged back into the environment.

We use many ecover products when possible.

We encourage guests to explore the local area by bicycle or foot. 

We occasionally offer guests eggs from our own chickens (but they are terribly temperamental), Guests are welcome to take fresh herbs from our herb garden and fruit from our own Apple, Pear, Plum and Quince Trees – some of these trees were thought to be extinct but we have them.

We sometimes keep Bees and have many flowering plants to encourage bees to our gardens.

We share our grounds with bats, badgers, fox, hare, rabbits, deer and an amazing array of birds  – from Buzzards and Owls to blue-tits, goldfinches and woodpeckers: all these animals and more find food here and shelter in our many hedges and various gardens.


Local Area

The tiny Village of Kersey, which is widely regarded as Suffolk’s prettiest Medieval Village, is just a leisurely 10 minute bike ride down the lane from us, and luckily has an excellent Pub right by the ford for thirsty cyclists.

Supermarkets and shops are within a 10 minute drive.

The famous village of Lavenham ‘England’s best preserved Medieval Village’ is just 4 miles away and the area immortalised by England’s renowned Landscape Painter ; John Constable and known as ‘Constable Country’ is right beside us. 

There are many great country pubs, some special Gastro pubs like The Crown Inn at Stoke-by-Nayland and some high quality restaurants like The Great House or The Swann in Lavenham.

Please see my Local Guide tab for more information.

This area is amazingly rural and untouched by city life, with tiny single track lanes leading nowhere or to a pub, footpaths galore and tiny Medieval Villages where time seems to have stood still.

If you are staying for more than a weekend then a day out at the unspoilt Suffolk Coast is always a lovely trip.

The coast starts just 30 minutes away near Colchester or Ipswich and our favourite beaches and places on the coast are between 50 – 70 minutes away, places like Pin Mill, Nacton, Levington, Orford, Aldeburgh, Dunwich, Southwold and Mersey Island.

The nearby Medieval Villages of Long Melford, famed for its setting for the Lovejoys TV series, Nayland, sitting prettily on the river Stour, Polstead, with its bluebells woods and impressive views over the Box river valley are all close by and there are many more tiny villages with lovely walks and Pubs to explore.

This is an area you can feel a million miles away from City life and really relax and enjoy just being part of.

  • In the heart of the prettiest area of Suffolk we were blessed to be afforded the opportunity to stay for 3 days in Rose Cottage. A delightful picture perfect luxury home from home. The decor, furnishings and atmosphere of this quaint wonderful rural idyll is stunning inside and out. Tastefully designed with a comfy bed, lush towels and every amenity one needs to self cater. The garden is a tranquil setting, with ample privacy, gorgeous flower beds maintained to a very high standard.

  • The cottage itself is a beautiful cosy little place with everything you need. The photos of the grounds surrounding the cottage don’t do it justice, it really is incredible. There’s also some great little villages to explore in the local area, Lavenham was our favourite and I can highly recommend The Swan Hotel for Afternoon Tea and The Greyhound for drinks. My partner and I would 100% stay here again in the future. Our only issue with the the whole experience, is that we didn’t stay for longer.
  • Monday, 3rd January 2022, Vittoria & Tommaso:

    For a short break away, where you are seeking some quiet countryside cycling, the cottage and facilities are perfect. Indeed, it ticks all the boxes.
  • Sunday, 24th of November, 2019, Graham & Jenny:
    A snug, rustic hideaway for an early winter weekend break. The photos on the website don’t do the place full justice, they cannot convey the atmosphere, warmth and character adequately. Silence outside, quiet crackling from the fire inside, so peaceful.
  • Monday, 23rd of September, 2019, Gennie & Marco:
    Amazing, cosy and quiet place – everything you need for a peaceful getaway. Thanks so much!
  • Friday, 20th of September, 2019, Gill:
    We’ve loved it. You’ve thought of everything in the cottage – it was especially nice to get a ‘proper’ started pack of essentials – thank you. You’re in a great area with plenty to see and do, and you annotated map and file made it much easier to decide what to do.
  • Friday, 13th of September, 2019, Caroline & Steve:
    Simply excellent ! 🙂
  • Sunday, 8th of September, 2019, Holly:
    Another perfect stay with Grove Cottages! We come every year and even though each time we choose a new cottage, we are never disappointed. Luxury, comfort, a thoughtful breakfast basket and plenty of peace and quiet is always on the agenda. Rose Cottage is beautiful, the perfect place to come for our babymoon!
  • Monday, 2nd of September, 2019, Bernard & Jane:
    What a wonderful week we have had in this very cosy cottage. Not large but everything we needed for ourselves and our dog Norma. Super shower and a very comfortable bed – altogether an absolute delight.
  • Friday, 23rd of August, 2019, Anton:
    We had an excellent stay in this cottage. The weather was with us. A lot to visit, small villages, churches. Also the trip to Cambridge was worth doing. Even we could test 2 9 hole golf courses (Clare was best). Also the welcome basket is very well appreciated. Hope to come back as soon as possible. Best regards and thanks for all the tips
  • Sunday, 11th of August, 2019, Jianshen:

    Thank you for another wonderful weekend. As soon as we arrived and unpacked we were relaxed. So much so we didn’t talk or feel the need to, in such tranquil silence. To summarise we have again made some fantastic memories. Just excellent! Amazing! Everything was perfect. Thank you. Love Sarah & Phill
  • Friday, 19th of July, 2019, Karen & Rod & Louis & Emmie:
    We have just returned from a lovely stay in Rose Cottage. The cottage is cosy and comfortable for a couple – AND 2 greyhounds! The bed is extremely comfortable! The welcome from Mark was exceptional and he made sure we knew where everything was. An especially welcome sight was the basket of goodies. Mark provides very comprehensive information on where to eat, visit and walk. Grove Cottages are set in an idyllic location and the grounds around the Cottages are wonderful. So many places to sit and relax with a book and a glass of wine. The orchard is a brilliant area for dogs to let off steam. We love the fact that it is so dog friendly. There are “rules” with regard to dogs in the Cottages and if people find them too strict then we would say maybe they shouldn’t have dogs!!!!! All the rules were common sense to us as they ensure everyone can enjoy their stay. Would highly recommend Grove Cottages to anyone with dogs. We will definitely return.
  • Friday, 12th of July, 2019, Hanne & Jonathan:
    This is a fairy tale cottage!
  • Monday, 8th of July, 2019, Rose:
    We had the most lovely time in Rose Cottage. Cosy, romantic and totally relaxing. A welcome break from the city. Everything at Rose Cottage was wonderful and every need was met. We loved the welcome basket. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks!
  • Sunday, 30th of June, 2019, Pol:
    Second time we spent a week in one of the Grove Cottages. This time in Rose; small but very cosy, romantic….with lovely terrace among the herbs. We love the quiet and beautiful surroundings and all the possibilities to walk.
  • Friday, 21st of June, 2019, Emma:
    A great stay in every way but what really stood out, was the welcome basket of locally sourced, fresh food, some of it grown on site. Fantastic.
  • Friday, 14th of June, 2019, Paul & Carol:
    Ideal place for touring the area
  • Sunday, 26th of May, 2019, Linda:

    Rose Cottage is a delightful cosy retreat in beautiful Suffolk countryside. It is easily accessible for anyone with limited mobility. The herb garden was a lovely aromatic way to approach it. The Welcome basket was also a very nice touch. I hope to return.
  • Thursday, 16th of May, 2019, Simon & Natalie:
    Booked as a birthday treat for my ‘husband to be’. He loved Rose Cottage, we both found our stay very relaxing and the cottage itself is cosy. Great welcome basket, well thought out with quality local produce. You will find lots of great places to visit in the information pack. We will book with Grove Cottages again. Thank you for a lovely stay

    One of our favourite places we’ve every stayed. Super cosy and completely charming. We will definitely come back!
  • Thursday, 7th of March, 2019, Caroline & Steve:
    A wonderful get away from it all retreat. Cosy cottage and a wonderful atmosphere, with a gorgeous outside space. Lovely walking here, good local pub with fabulous home cooked food. The cottage looked wonderful on the website, however once we arrived it had the most lovely feel and was even better than the photos. The attention to detail, welcome basket, spring flowers made it so special. Loved going to the shed to get our coal and logs, a real novelty for us. The twinkling lights everywhere made it a magical place. Jazz music in the cottage on arrival, right up our street! Will definitely return.
  • Saturday, 2nd of March, 2019, Dayna:
    Lovely weekend at Rose Cottage. Beautiful setting, great host and excellent value for money. Beautiful cottage, love the decor!
  • Friday, 1st of March, 2019, Tina & Stephen:

    Rose Cottage was exactly what we needed to charge our batteries. An idyllic countryside escape.

Our second stay in Rose Cottage, one of several spent at various Grove Cottages. For us, it is perfect with our 2 small dogs. Brilliant bathroom and the cottage is welcoming and cosy. We always love being here and find different walks, pubs and places to see – so pretty perfect for us.
  • Sunday, 3rd of February, 2019, AJ & Jacqui:

  • Friday, 19th of October, 2018, Tricia & Ken:
    We absolutely loved the delightful, romantic Rose Cottage. Definitely a little piece of heaven on earth, so peaceful, so remote and so utterly perfect in every way.

    Grove Farm cottages are a lovely quiet getaway for a relaxing break. We stayed in Rose Cottage this time and The Bakery previously. Both very quaint on the inside and outside as is not always the case on other sites. Lovely welcome and welcome basket of food. Worth a visit to explore lovely Suffolk.

    Fine (mainly) sunny days at the end of October – can’t be bad! Just the tonic at this busy time of year.

    Another 5 star Grove Cottages visit. Rose Cottage was a delight – even better than the photos! Beautiful beamed ceilings and so lovely having a real fire. Marion and Mark were very welcoming and the location is fantastic – walks, pretty villages and good pubs on the doorstep.

    Lovely few days – a wonderful cottage. This is the second cottage we have been to on the Grove site and both are so good. Hopefully we will try very many more, they are so unique and well thought out. Nothing more to say everything was up to the Grove Cottages standard. Everything needed for a relaxing enjoyable stay, all catered for especially dogs which is a bonus and so hard to find.
  • Friday, 27th of January, 2017, Tracie:
    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!

  • Friday, 30th of December, 2016, Michael & Christine:
    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.

  • 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:

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

    We loved our stay in Rose Cottage over the New Year, walking our dogs in the glorious snow-covered countryside and returning to the joy of an open fire.

  • Sunday, 5th of July, 2009, Bryn and Julia:
    There can’t be many places where you can have a relaxing holiday with a lively 11 month old, but the pretty, peaceful cottages, and the attention to detail here, have helped to relax-although the baby is still lively!

    Rose Cottage is so peaceful, romantic and relaxing – it is often too much trouble to venture outside.

Warm, friendly atmosphere – just what’s needed to unwind and relax ! We’ve never felt so relaxed and tranquil for ages
  • Thursday, 7th of August, 2008, Tim & Paula:

  • Monday, 7th of July, 2008, Rhiannon & Robert:
    Thank you so much for providing excellent accommodation; it exceeded all our expectations. The pictures on the Internet make it look good but really didn’t do it justice.

  • Wednesday, 4th of June, 2008, Graham, Fiona & baby Jack:
    After just a few hours, you feel like you’re living in your own country cottage. Everything you could possibly want is provided with the cottage, or available from Mark. All this makes a trip to The Grove Cottages a ‘No Effort’ break. Thank you!

    Hello Mark, Thanks for your newsletter with regards to your winter offers …Unfortunately we probably wont be staying with you this year because, after we had such a wonderful time here early last year, we have moved here!
