Snow 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. It is an ideal little getaway, sleeping a couple with large gardens to roam in, ample off road parking and lovely countryside walks straight from the cottage.
You can enter Snow Cottage from the little herb garden, the main room has a beautiful old wood floor and a big Persian rug, an impressively high vaulted wooden ceiling with pretty old soft redbrick walls, distressed lime washed lime plaster and a lovely ‘extra big’ sofa..
On the left there is a hand crafted kitchen with gas hob, electric oven and a Belfast sink set into a handmade oak and tiled work top.
Beyond this is a cosy bedroom and a luxury marble bathroom with an oversized walk in shower.
The cleverly placed external and internal windows make this a sunny cottage and bring light into every room.
Snow 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 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 Snow Cottage.
Please do call us to discuss this further and see our access statement with a set of access dimensions and step heights.
Snow 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 Snow Cottage – plus footpaths directly from the cottage into open countryside with a lovely dog friendly pub just a 15 minute walk away.
Well behaved Dogs are always welcome, please refer to All About Bringing Pets for charges, Rules and how this cottage may suit your pet.
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 building, where guests can laze around under the apple and pear trees and have a BBQ in Summer.
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 and maps in the cottage with good routes to help explore the tiny lanes and pretty little Medieval Villages.
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 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.
Snow Cottage is a very special place that is much loved by guests and perfect for a romantic escape to the lovely Suffolk countryside.
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.
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 offer guests an occasional egg from our own chickens (they are rather temperamental), 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.

The welcome pack was amazing and the information folders help when planning days out. We would like to thank Mark for being a welcoming, friendly host and for his stories about the locality
We Had a wonderful stay in this cosy and lovely cottage. The Stormy weather (Storm Ciara/Dennis) outside gave us time to appreciate how lovely being in this little cottage really is !
There is nowhere better to de-stress, than a weekend at Grove Cottages. You will return home a new and envigorated person 🙂
A lovely stay in a cosy well thought out cottage. Location is brill with lots of walks and dog friendly pubs nearby. The little welcoming touches were lovely, a warm welcome too!
We have had the most magical stay here in Snow Cottage. Immaculate, quirky, friendly and historical. We were greeted by the very charming mark who showed us around the beautiful grounds. At the cottage soft classical music was playing, fire lit to give a warm glow. We had arrived at our own little haven of magic. Thank you so much, we will no doubt see you again. Johanna
My husband and I and our dog, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is cosy and beautifully decorated. The dog exercise area next to our cottage was lovely for our dog to make full use of. The cottage is ideally located for a short drive to great pubs and amazing walks in Suffolk. We hope we can come back soon!
Lovely quiet peaceful surroundings, perfect for unwinding from the city! Loved the warm rustic charm of Snow Cottage, especially the beams that have all the contours and character of their original trees. A very relaxing stay, thank you! Fantastic that we could bring our cat with us – very much appreciated, she loved her stay also.
We have had an absolutely wonderful stay. The welcome hamper was such a thoughtful touch and we really enjoyed it. The Christmas tree was a great idea and made the cottage feel really homely.

Mark went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and advise us of things to do in the surrounding area.

Such a beautiful cottage to spend time away from our busy lives. Thank you for making our stay truly magical.
We had a truly magical stay in Snow Cottage. There is so much to explore in the local area but leaving the cottage to do so was very hard as it is so beautiful! We will be back many times, that’s for sure! Fabulous welcome by Mark. Felt part of the family. Decorated in such an eclectic, beautiful style.
Snow Cottage is lovely as are the grounds it sits in. There are plenty of things to do and the amenities here are plentiful. Just what we needed! Thank you Mark, for your hospitality! The greeting was warm and informative. Sofa was comfy, and most times in cottages they aren’t!
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. So nice to have a welcoming safe environment for the dog too.
As interior designers, we have high standards for decor and it didn’t disappoint! Mixing modern and old, the cottage was extremely clean and well appointed.
Lovely stay in this cosy cottage which was well presented. Excellent welcome package – thank you
We simply cam from a stressful daily life and here we have truly found peace. We have no bad words we can say about the hospitality we had and the places we discovered. Note 10+! Thank you!
Superb accommodation. Tastefully and thoughtfully decorated – feels like home. Mark has thought of everything to make your stay memorable from from the gorgeous welcome basket, free use of bikes, helpful tips and maps – and everything to make your day happy!
I have stayed in a number of cottages under Grove Farm group, but first time on the farm itself. Snow Cottage is funky meets Suffolk traditional. Eclectic mix of decor which strangely works. Thank you Mark and family.
I cannot think of such a wonderful place to stay. A ‘get away’ space that delivers on so many fronts. Beautiful location, cottages that are beautifully decorated in an eclectic style, clean, tidy and hosts that are simply outstanding. Will we be back, you bet……!
Snow Cottage was a quaint little cottage with a lot of original features. Nicely decorated thoughout; contemporary with a touch of quirkiness. Ideally situated with a lot of pubs, walks and shops nearby.
Snow Cottage – Grove Cottages fabulous for a short break in the Suffolk countryside. Peaceful and quiet and the cottage is well equipped and comfortable
We have had an excellent four day break in Snow Cottage; it’s warm, extremely comfortable and an interesting mix of old and new. We’ll certainly be recommending it to family and friends. Great location for a cycling holiday – even if the weather did curtail this a bit! Mark is a mine of information too.
Stayed at a couple of the cottages now. Cosy, warm, clean with great attention to detail. A fantastic welcome pack and flowers greeted us, with a warm welcome from the owner. Nothing was too much trouble if we asked. Will be returning. Thank you
A garden full of herbs. Bring your menus!
Snow Cottage was wonderful and we realy admired the effort put into making the interior a wonderful place to be. It was beautiful and everything you needed, Mark and Zuzi were the same, lovely knowledgeable hosts, as we experianced a few years ago.
Really enjoyed Snow Cottage especially the funky eclectic touches like, the groovy mirror, lava lamp and firey rocks. We appreciated the bikes and had a great cycle to Lavenham.
Lovely, comfy cottage – great situation and very dog friendly. Nice walks, we loved…. fairy lights, super shower, quirky decor, really nice local produce welcome basket and helpful host!
We had a lovely two nights in Snow Cottage. The cottage itself was so charming, from the breakfast basket waiting for us on arrival, to the interior details like lava lamp and beautiful plant in the living room. We especially loved taking the bicycles and exploring the countryside on our first sunny morning.
We wanted to thank you for a great weekend. We will certainly recommend The Grove – what a special gem we’ve found here. X
Snow Cottage was a lovely escape with lots of beautiful touches. Mark made us feel so comfortable and we’d love to come back for longer and take advantage of the grounds and bikes
Our host Mark was a perfect gentleman, with outstanding local knowledge, where to go and what to do, with a real passion for the area. Snow cottage was beautiful, fitted out to an incredibly high standard. If you are ever in or around Lavenham, you would be hard pushed to find a nicer place to stay. Fantastic quality at an amazing price, you won’t be disappointed
Another enjoyable weekend at Snow. Had a late check out which I would recommend. Chilling morning and Sunday lunch before leaving the beautiful tranquility and back to reality.
A lovely cottage, rustic feel but all mod cons included. Ample parking, warm welcome and an unexpected basket of goodies for breakfast!
We stayed in Snow Cottage for a long weekend break. The cottage is a mixture of rustic charm and modern decor. It was a joy to sit in the comfortable sitting room and the bed was very comfy; it has a lovely luxury bathroom with wet room. Well placed for visiting local towns and sites. We will book again. Thank you x
Mark was extremely welcoming & ran through all the local Area with us. The Cottage was lovely and cosy, we would definitely recommend it to friends & family. We thought the Breakfast Hamper was such a lovely touch ! Thank you.
Had a wonderful time here. The medieval town of Lavenham was a good lookout. Good place to bring your dog because of all he dog friendly places to go
Just to say we have had a lovely stay. Snow Cottage is just so cosy and had everything we needed. We hope to come back again one day. Thanks you 🙂
Lovely peaceful cottage with friendly owners and lovely pet cat! Great getaway with useful map to get your bearings. Very cosy and easy to feel relaxed at home. Well needed peace and quiet and lovely hamper.
Warm Welcome, stylish but cosy cottage – beautiful bathroom – would highly recommend
We loved this place – rural cottage bolthole meets Austin Powers!
We were welcomed by a friendly lady who showed us around the grounds, local hot spots and popular locations to visit. The cottage was a great size for the two of us, cosy and a real country feel but still with all the modern appliances and a smart TV. The bedroom and bathroom both very well made up and space for everything you’re likely to bring along. The whole place and villages around really are a must if you are looking for a rural retreat. 5 stars!
Beautiful cottage, well equipped and cosy. Booked to stay the night of our wedding but liked it so much we stayed another night!
We had a lovely time at Snow Cottage. Very relaxing and cosy cottage. Fantastic facilities and used the bikes – lovely to cycle around the country lanes to the nearby pub !
We both loved the whole ‘package’: the setting in such beautiful countryside; Snow Cottage itself oozing with character; lovely welcome; superb information resources and advice and great music to boot. Our first visit but definitely not the last. Thank you
Another enjoyable break at Grove Cottages.
Wonderful to find somewhere so delightful. Cottage is beautiful, cosy and welcoming and in peaceful rolling landscape. It’s enough to tempt us out of our Dorset village more often. You’ve thought of everything – great attention to detail. Thank you.
We Certainly enjoyed ourselves ! This cottage is a little Gem in a wonderful surrounding. It has everything that one wishes for a relaxing break away. Our dog loved to be in a lovely countryside setting with many different walks at the doorstep. Thank you !
After weeks and weeks of sunshine it decided to rain on our weekend at Snow Cottage. But this enchanting place was cosy and welcoming and we had a lovely relaxing stay. We will be back. Mark & Zuzi you are great hosts.

Lovely. We enjoyed the Welcome Basket, most generous one yet, we have experienced !
We have had a lovely if all too brief stay. The Cottage was Spotless & loved the touches like the breakfast basket. Would definitely recommend to friends. Lovely & quiet. Lots of places easily accessible from here. We had a good meal at The Bell in Kersey.
We’ve had a lovely time. Beautiful walks, ice cream at Dunwich, walks on the beach and down the country lanes, and even across the field at night to the White Horse. It’s all been brill!
We’ve enjoyed a love five day break at Snow Cottage. Weather was great apart from one very dull and damp Wednesday.
How lovely to arrive at the cottage and the heating was on and the music was playing… we arrived late (by arrangement) after am awful journey so it was really welcoming… Thank you so much.
Snow Cottage was spotless with every facility you’d need for a relaxing holiday. Thank you so much for the wonderful welcome basket. Our third stay with Grove Cottages and I’d never hesitate to recommend you
If this property was an ‘A’ level, it would have achieved an A*. Cosy, comfy base to explore the Suffolk county.
Wonderful cottage, all modern appliances but full of character. Has everything you need. Lots of places to explore all a short drive or cycle away. Loved every minute!
Second stay with Grove Cottages and it didn’t disappoint! A beautiful comfortable place to stay, a complete getaway. A huge luxurious treat, worth staying here than any local hotel for the price you pay.
Wonderful Week ! Lovely Cottage, wonderful quiet spot, great things to see and do in the area. Extra touches so thoughtful such as the Breakfast Basket ! Use of the gardens with seating, Orchards and various items to add to your stay such as deck chairs, bicycles, and helments as well as BBQS. All in all a “Fantastic Find” !
Superb location, tranquil, relaxing…we would love to come back!
Weather this week was amazing. Lovely places to visit. Cottage supplied us with everything we needed. Very comfortable and with a lovely bathroom. Brilliant quirky features.
(Leo Stayed in Rose, Dons and Snow Cottages – over 3 weeks with different elements of his family ) We have had a wonderful time
This is the third time we have stayed with Grove Cottages. All the properties have such character, are well equipped, comfortable and have peaceful and relaxing surroundings. For us ‘townies’ it is like living the ‘rural bliss’ for a week. Love the new shower room at Snow Cottage and the welcome baskets are really appreciated – thanks
Perfect weekend getaway – cottage & facilities are excellent. A great base to explore Suffolk’s pubs and villages ! Will definitely be returning
Every visit to The Grove is very special. So peaceful, we had a magic time. The team at Grove cannot do enough to make your time very happy
Another lovely weekend at Grove Cottages. This has become our Go-To location for battery-recharging ! Thank you again for all the lovely touches – the Welcome Pack etc. And we had a gorgeous weather bonus this time .
Snow Cottage lived up to expectations and beyond. Cosy but with a quality 60s vibe. We had a self indulgent and lovely time interspersed with ‘wet’ walks! Wouldn’t hesitate to come again.
We had an exceptional First Time experience at The grove cottages. We received a very warm welcome from Mark and his wife which we really appreciated . Snow Cottage was exquisite. We have visited other 5* cottages ; this exceeded our expectations. The welcome felt like you really cared that we had a good stay. The level of comfort was exceptional and I felt so very spoilt staying here. It is so clear that you pay a lot of attention to guest comfort by providing a wide range of entertainment and such detail in your interiors. I can see the cottages are a real labour of love. I really appreciated the musical welcome.
The best romantic cottage escape – so much to take in. A warm, welcoming and cosy place. Fabulous place, thank you very much
Amazing place, beautiful cottage. Lovely welcome and could not fault anything. Stayed for 3 nights and had the most relaxing and wonderful stay. Will definitely return.
Mark and his team as always provide the most wonderful country holiday cottage experience. Snow cottage was both comfortable warm and well equipped For our New Years break in the stunning Suffolk countryside. The smart TV and wireless was an added bonus. THANK YOU!
The cottage is absolutely beautiful, we love how it has it’s own character and the modern gadgets go really well together. We felt really at home – your are so lucky to have such a beautiful cottage, we could live here. We have stayed in many places, but by far this is the best!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the cottage was more than we expected. The quirky style and layout made it really unique and we felt very at home here. I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay and explore the lovely area
Cosy, warm and relaxing, everything one needs for a short break.
A lovely stay in a unique cottage. Very cosy but with all the ‘mod cons’ and overall stylish design. A great base for exploring the local area, a thoroughly enjoyable stay
A welcome return after 13 years. We have had a peaceful 3 days in this lovely cottage. Much needed – thank you
Just delightful………as always! Don’t change please.
A lovely part of the country previously unknown to us, but recommended by a friend. So much to do and relaxed friendly inhabitants. Grove Cottages are the ideal place to stay, efficiently run and every need taken care of without fuss. Even the dog felt happy here! We felt we were in the hands of experts with many years experience of holiday lets!
Fantastic place to stay as usual warm welcome loved the bikes
Very comfortable cottage with everything we needed. Ideal location for seeing some of the Suffolk countryside. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated – that ‘little bit extra’ was a nice touch, as was the owners help – even a willing hand to clean down our muddy dog. Thank you, we appreciated it.
Another very enjoyable stay in Snow Cottage. A lovely place to relax and unwind and explore the Suffolk countryside. I can’t recommend Grove Cottages enough, they never fail to please in every way.
I have had the best time here! It’s beautiful and the people have made it very genuine, down to earth and soooo welcoming. I’m looking in my diary already to re-book. Top banana!
Good location for exploring this part of Suffolk. Cottage has everything you need – home from home
The cottages at Grove Farm have a wonderful atmosphere in any idyllic, quiet setting – we have had the most restful and refreshing few days, thank you.
What a fantastic find! Beautiful cottage, exactly as it’s described on the website. Excellent size for 2 people, spotlessly clean, everything you need – they have thought of everything – including a fantastic breakfast basket!
Quiet, relaxing, comfortable, character, charming cottage with everything we required.
Small but perfect! Snow Cottage is everything we needed for a peaceful getaway – complete with friendly cat! This is our third ‘Grove Cottage’ stay with a consistently high standard and hope if won’t be long before our next….thanks
Lovely cottage, beautiful location. Would definitely return again. Welcome basket was a nice touch.
Lovely cottage, friendly and welcoming hosts ! Gave us lots to do, good recommendations of where to go and places to eat ! The Cottage was lovely and had everything we needed including a game of Scrabble ! Thank you for the Welcome Basket, it was a lovely touch. We will definetely look at staying again ! X
A most delightful cottage with quite outstanding hosts in an idyllic setting. By far the best cottage holiday experiance ever. If you love countryside and fresh air it is not to be missed. Our dog loved it too.
Very nice cottage beautifully decorated in a fantastic area. Will definitely be returning very soon. Everything was spectacular.
What a fabulous place. Been visiting the area for work for many years, so just wish I’d discovered this place earlier. As a loan business traveller the cottage provided home from home and so nice to have other guests to chat to in the evening. Great cycling, quiet roads. Never knew this area was so beautiful. I will definitely be back – also think I need to come back with the other half!
Beautiful cottage. Had an amazing stay here with our 5 week old son! Absolutely lovely people. Thank you x
We are working our way through Grove Cottages! The last time we were here in Farm Cottage in January, we did have snow – but happily none in June at Snow Cottage! Delightful and comfortable cottage as always – thank you. These are becoming our ‘go to’ places when in need of some R&R without having to travel widely – so it’s great to know you’re here.
We had a lovely stay at Snow Cottage, surroundings are so pretty and peaceful. We appreciated the breakfast basket, it was a lovely touchy! Highly recommend this and The White Horse, Edwardstone. We would stay at Grove Cottages again as we felt so welcome.
Lovely welcome from Mark. Great cottage with all the things you’d want when having a short break.
We immensely enjoyed our stay at Snow Cottage. We came here for rest, peace and tranquility from the rush of London life, and that’s exactly what we received. Lovely place and would love to come back again.
All excellent – wish we could stay longer. Will definitely recommend.
Very cosy and quirky cottage, very clean and warm. Nice quiet spot to stay with plenty of outside space to wander. Helpful hosts and we appreciated the welcome basket. Enjoyed our stay very much in this part of Suffolk. Thank you.
After searching through quite frankly, a lot of ‘dross’ cottages in Suffolk, Grove Cottages seemed to set itself apart from everything else on offer. We booked at short notice for a weekend and managed to book delightful Snow Cottage. Coupled with great weather this place allowed us to relax, unwind and be amazed at the stunning Suffolk countryside. The cottage is well thought out and has everything you need. You will not be disappointed with Snow Cottage – really can’t find any negatives, such a shame we only booked for the weekend!
Really wonderful! Very cosy and comfortable, we loved that we could bring our dog too. We did one of the local walks and it was amazing. Went to 2 of the recommended pubs and enjoyed food and drink!
Lovely relaxing place with rustic charm, natural materials, peace and a tranquil location away from it all, but not too far from beautiful villages, countryside, the sea… The hosts are kind and helpful people. Thanks for having us to stay!
Quiet surroundings, clean – very clean, spacious, modern cottage. Lovely walks around the area. Prepared the cottage very nicely with a welcome basket. Excellent service for a great short break – couldn’t be better!
We had a lovely time, very peaceful 10/10. We will definitely come again.
Very comfortable and cosy cottage. Thank you for the lovely basket of goodies. It was a thoughtful surprise. Could not fault the cottage , most enjoyable, cosy and warm and a great location.
An excellent location for exploring Suffolk with our dog. We had booked Snow Cottage but when the opportunity arose Mark upgraded us to The Bakery. Both cottages are lovely and we felt at home immediately. The welcome basket is the best we have ever encountered. Thank you.
Fabulous place to stay – we will be back. Perfect cottage, amazing location, friendly host. Loved all the extra touches – welcome basket, free bike use etc.
We had a lovely time as always!
Lovely fresh breakfast, nice to know that it is all local. Special thanks to Mark for showing us the local area, the best pubs and walks. The map was very handy – we also loved playing the games in Snow Cottage. Couldn’t fault it, everything we need and wanted.
The welcome basket was a lovely touch and a very helpful surprise! Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.
Delightful cottage, enjoyable, relaxing, peace and quiet, lovely setting. Welcome basket – excellent! Even after 13 years since our first visit, it is still very relaxing, and so ‘away from it all’ – a great experience.
Return Visit � Such a great place to get away from it all, lovely setting..
More than reached our expectations, absolutely stunning place and area. Welcome basket was fantastic. We wished we could have stayed longer (forever). Will be back again and again and again. Thank you so much.
Everything was perfect. I wound’t change a thing. Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings.
Snow Cottage is an enjoyable mix of past and present. It has all you could need for a relaxing stay.
Cosy, yet spacious cottage in a lovely rural setting. Well placed to explore Suffolk. A real “get away from it all”
All very good stayed previously and would stay again. Cottage and outside areas excellent and great to relax in day and night.
Our first visit to Suffolk has been brilliant. Your ‘What To Do’ guide has been very helpful when planning what to do each day and your extensive dog friendly pubs suggestions has been useful when planning meals out. Snow Cottage is a lovely, it’s cosy and characterful and perfect for us and our dog Desmond. The welcome basket was a lovely treat which we all enjoyed – thank you very much.
Lovely cottage, lovely setting. The owners have thought of everything you might need. Would like to try other cottages in the future.
Snow Cottage has a wonderful feel that makes your feel at home straightaway.
We had a fabulous stay, loved the cottage, loved the peace and quiet and loved the surrounding villages. The welcome basket is a huge plus, full of local fresh ingredients. Thank you x
An exclusive cluster of interesting recycled buildings in a very quiet country setting, with lots of bird song to lift ones spirits.
Snow Cottage – quaint, rustic and utterly charming. Loved the cottage – loved our stay and the welcome pack was great. I will certainly recommend to all my friends.
Thank you yet again for a wonderful stay! We really can’t express enough what a first class business you are. The cottages are beautiful, the attention to detail and effort in making them homely and unique is wonderful. The little extras like the welcome basket really make it special. The booking is simple and you are all so helpful – nothing is a problem. This is our third visit and we can’t wait to come back soon.
Wonderful weekend stay. Cosy cottage – absolutely perfect for a getaway. All really lovely thank you so much. We stayed for a wedding and would definitely come back for a holiday!
The cottage is beautiful and a cosy home from home. We very much appreciated the breakfast basket, tea, coffee and essentials provided. We will definitely consider another stay.
We have had a lovely stay at Snow Cottage. Grove Farm as a whole is beautiful and very dog friendly. The extra touches (breakfast basket) are great and all staff are warm and friendly. High recommend staying to everyone!
This is our third stay in Grove Cottages (twice in Snow, once in Orchard) and we love it here. Thank you.
You know you’ve picked the right holiday cottage when you’re greeted with Miles Davis as the “ambience” music…utterly stunning surroundings, beautiful getaway cottage. Great cycle routes and lovely hosts, couldn’t have been much better. The basket of goodies was amazing. This is by far the best stocked cottage we have every rented, it made us feel so at home during our stay. Thanks for making it so wonderful
Had a lovely time at Snow Cottage. Very cosy and comfortable with lovely walks for the dog and friendly pubs, where we had some great meals, would definitely come back.
A relaxing base to return to each evening after some fairly stressful days spent house hunting. Really cosy, well equipped and set in beautiful countryside. Our third break in a Grove Cottage property; what you see on the website is what you get and they never disappoint. Walking to the White Horse is a great way to unwind. The breakfast basket was once again delicious. Thank you.
Nice, well equipped snug cottage.
My partner and I came here for a last minute 2 night break with our baby daughter. All I can say is what a delightful little cottage in a picturesque setting with such friendly and helpful owners. The welcome basket was such a thoughtful touch and the cottage had been heated in preparation for our arrival. We wished we could have stayed longer to explore more, but what a base for a well deserved break!
Corinne and I have had the most wonderful weekend.We had a great welcome on Friday night and then were left to relax with our delicious welcome basket of fresh and local produce. Had lots of fun exploring the local area too – would highly recommend. It was all brilliant – really liked walking to The White Horse pub!
Really impressed with Mark, who was very warm and welcoming. The cottage was perfect and full of character. It’s just a shame we were not staying longer. Perhaps a revisit is on the cards, to enjoy more of it’s surroundings?
Cottage was warm and cosy on arrival. High ceilings all to spacious feel. Had everything we needed, welcome basket appreciated. Thank you very much.
We have had such a lovely time staying in Snow Cottage. It has been our first stay here but definitely won’t be our last. Snow Cottage has been a delight and has been a snug and cosy home from home. It is very clean and welcoming and stocked to a very high level – we didn’t really need to bring anything with us.We had a lovely welcome and the welcome basket provided in the cottage was much appreciated and full of tasty local produce. We found the location ideal and it gave us a good base to explore the surrounding villages and countryside.
We had a very relaxing and quiet break. Very much needed! Beautiful cottage with everything we could possibly need. Great welcome. Sad to leave. Will be back!
A lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful place. Everything was just right – from the flowers to the welcome basket. The extra finishing touches that make an extra special holiday. I don’t think I will bother using any other companies now I’ve found Grove Cottages!! I know it will be guaranteed bliss!
Lovely cottage, dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves, weather couldn’t have been better. Well done!
We have had a lovely two night stay in Snow Cottage. We came for a local wedding and have managed to fit in lots of dog walks in the beautiful surroundings. The set up is brilliant (bikes, BBQ area, welcome basket, local info, marked-up map). You really have thought of everything. Thank you!
Charming cottage, lovely stay. Love the orchard, great location. Quiet and peaceful stay. The welcome pack was much appreciated and delicious.
We have had a lovely weekend break. Snow Cottage was very cute and had everything we needed to relax. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast using the welcome basket treats. The grounds are lovely and lots of effort has been put into making sure we find our way around the local area, with great information on what to see and do. Would really recommend taking some of the walks highlighted and sampling the pubs along the way.
Our first visit to Suffolk – Grove Cottages are an excellent central base to explore it, visit friends and just relax.
Had a wonderful stay and very much enjoyed the cottage – the welcome pack was much appreciated.
Always a pleasure to return when we need to get away from it all, and just ‘stop’ for a while. Always feel we would like to stay longer!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grove Cottages – a perfect getaway in beautiful surroundings!
We had a lovely time staying in Snow Cottage. It is a very cosy cottage and we loved the high ceilings. We did a lot of baking and the oven was great! It was brilliant having the bikes, deck chairs and BBQ available – all things we don’t have at home. We would highly recommend staying at Snow Cottage.
Here for my brothers wedding, which was amazing. The locale is very beautiful and the cottages fit this rustic splendour. There were a few of us in various cottages and we all had a great time. Wish we had longer here! Until we meet again……
Snow Cottage is a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a lovely break. With the other Grove Cottages in this setting it is a wonderful place for a family get together.
We knew right away that we had picked the ‘right’ place to stay. I can recommend it highly, it was exactly what we were looking for.
We loved our stay. So nice to have our dog with us. Really comfortable feeling to the cottage and the hamper of breakfast goodies, set us up perfectly for our day.
Wonderful countryside, fabulous accommodation, super hospitality, what more could you ask for? Plenty to see and do either by car, bike or walking – definitely exceeded our expectations, you will not be disappointed.
Beautiful cottage in a stunning part of the world – thank you for sharing it with us. We’ve enjoyed great walks, fantastic local produce and ale and all underneath sunny Suffolk skies. So much to do here – we’ll be back.
We enjoyed our stay! We loved the cottage! The fresh eggs, tomatoes and fruit were lovely. Thanks to all!!
We’ve had a lovely few days cycling round the area on our tandem. The cottage was just right for us – we love the eclectic mix of furniture. The welcome basket was really appreciated.
Lovely welcome, peaceful, relaxing stay. Would recommend to family and friends. No doubt we will be back!!
Excellent facilities, clean and cosy. Perfect short break.
A little oasis of calm, with good local walks and easy access to tourist attractions. Plenty of good places to eat and dog friendly! Thanks for a very pleasant Bank Holiday break.
A lovely week for relaxing and enjoying the Suffolk countryside. Hopefully we will be able to return as there is so much to see and do. Loved The White Horse (they even use ‘Kent Hops’ in one of their brews – very unusual these days). We leave with two happy and tired dogs.
We had a fantastic stay! Beautiful attention to detail in the cottage, making it a relaxing and romantic holiday. Thank you.
We booked with the intention of a peaceful, romantic weekend away and that’s exactly what we found in Rose Cottage. The facilities were excellent and all the information provided about the area meant we were never bored. We loved the personal touches that Mark provides, including the breakfast basket and annotated map. It really felt like a home away from home, will definitely be coming back!
Cannot fault it at all. Lovely cottage, clean and cosy. Very comfortable and a great welcome pack.
Felt very welcomed as we arrived. Surpirsed by the lovely complimentary breakfast basket, which definitely came in handy! Perfect romantic getaway, if you want peace and quiet away from everyday busy lives.
A beautiful cottage, a great option for new parents looking for a little luxury, whilst being kind on the wallet!
The best farewell gift anyone could wish for! Absolute tranquility and comfort in such beautiful surrouindings, were a great start to my retirement. We love the quirky style and character of Snow Cottage and plan to come back. We have appreciated being made to feel welcome.
Returned to Snow Cottage after 3 and a half years. As comfortable and beautifully appointed as ever. Fabulous cycling countryside and too many great pubs!
Our second stay at Grove Cottages, as great as our first. We stayed in Snow Cottage for a romantic Valentine’s treat. It’s a cute little cottage, with lots of quirky nik naks, and nice touches. We stayed in The Bakery last time and thought we’d miss the open fire, but it didn’t make any difference. The welcome basket is a lovely touch, and we’ll definitely be back.
Had a wonderful weekend at Snow Cottage, which is cosy and very comfortable. The welcome basket was lovely and the fresh eggs very tasty.The cottage is in a great location for visiting the surrounding villages and places of interest. Next time we will have to stay for longer.
Lovely weekend! Perfect for walking the dogs and relaxing. Welcome basekt was wonderful and tasted amazing – thank you!
Another enjoyable stay at Grove Cottages. Everything you need is here, delightful cottages, cosy, warm and clean. Always a great welcome and a basket full of goodies. The surrounding countryside and villages, are stunning. One cannot fail to enjoy Suffolk and staying in one of Mark’s cottages, makes for a perfect break.
A wonderfully cosy cottage with a wonderful welcome, and a tremendous welcome basket. A peaceful haven, perfect to explore hidden treasure of villages and countryside from.
It was the perfect end to our wedding weekend. A warm, cosy cottage to relax and reflect in and enjoy our first weekend as a married couple. Thank you for your hospitality.
We’ve had an amazing, relaxing, recharging couple of days here. Snow Cottage really felt like home when returning from our days out. The welcome basket lasted for the duration of our stay, energising us in the mornings in preparation for our outings – a beautiful touch.It was always good to get back to Snow Cottage – warm, cosy, homely. A big thank you to our hosts, who really seem to have thought of everything. We look forward to our return to this lovely part of England. Who needs to go abroad???!!!
Quite amazing really. Quiet, practical location and amazing scenery. The facilities are really decent and having brought our 1 year old child, we found we were lacking nothing! I’ll definitely be coming back here….with friends 🙂
The ideal place for a relaxing break. So peaceful, plenty to do in the local area. Loved the bike ride to the White Horse pub.
Very nice compact cottage. Perfect for my short break – Hamish and Hector enjoyed the lovely quiet lanes to walk down. Worth walking to the White Horse!
This is our second Grove Cottage holiday (first was Cat;s Cradle). The cottages are warm, cosy, quirky and, as every guest says, the welcome baskets mean your breakfasts are sorted for the whole weekend. We are still enjoying the jam from Cat’s Cradle!
Beautiful cottage – welcome basket was just great – we plan to come back. Hall Farm Shop was excellent.
We needed a quick tranquil type of holiday and Grove Cottages fitted the criteria exactly. Beautifully appointed in lovely grounds, there was something on site for everyone to enjoy. Peaceful with wild life in abundance, nice outdoor spaces to sit and read to take a cup of tea! Good parking off road and safe. The cottages whilst having luxury you would not expect to find in a holiday cottage, felt like home. Loved the eclectic mix of furniture, good shower and comfy bed. Although we don’t have a dog, it was certainly dog friendly. Hope we can return again soon!
A lovely cottage for an anniversary weekend. Loved the eclectic mix of styling and comfy bed! Very good value but still feeling ‘special’ and cosy, but definitely not cramped. Breakfast hamper lasted all weekend and delicious too! Thank you x
Snow Cottage is delightful – quirky but very homely and comfortable. Welcome basket and fresh flowers very welcoming.
We have had a wonderfully restful week in this beautiful, unspoilt part of Suffolk. Coming from London, the peace and quiet has been very restorative. The cottage is excellently equipped, warm, cosy and comfortable, with every attention to detail, and the welcoming breakfast basket a real joy!
This is our second visit to Snow Cottage. Lovely location to unwind and relax.
A lovely place to come for a special occasion and to get away from everything. An unforgettable holiday – thank you!
Every need met. Warm welcome and all recommendations for visit, pubs, restaurants – first class.
Superb accommodation, welcome pack was brilliant and the bacon to die for. The cottage was really comfortable and with an eclectic mix of furnishings. We even spent time sitting in the orchard on the deck chairs, a first for us… Really lovely.
We arrived jet lagged and tired, and left rested, refreshed and totally relaxed � what a great place to start our English vacation.
A most enjoyable stay in Rose cottage. The welcome basket was a very nice touch and we enjoyed our cooked breakfast and freshly baked bread!!
Lovely peaceful break. Quiet surroundings would recommend for a tranquil break away.

Fantastic Cottage, very warm and friendly. Great base for visiting and relaxing. Will definitely be back, especially when the little one is a bit older so we can enjoy some of the great walks that are around.
Truly wonderful weekend escape. The cottage was gorgeous and a real home from home. Using the bikes to explore the beautiful countryside was great. Being Shown around on arrival was lovely and very welcoming. All of the local information was extremely useful and really helped us get the most out of our short time here Thank you So Much
The Snow Cottage was great! A very relaxing and very beautiful area! Can�t wait to return.
The cottage is ideally situated for the places we wanted to visit, with the added bonus of being close to Lavenham (such a pretty place). The cottage layout suits a couple looking for relaxing hideaway.
This was our first visit to Grove and we certainly feel that we would like to come back and stay in every cottage. It has been the perfect most relaxing weekend. Our stay was full of rustic charm and far exceeded our expectations. Extremely informative Welcome The arrival to the cottage was like stepping into a different World. The Welcome Basket was so lovely and generous and really added to the feel of the cottage. Thank you so much.
This weekend stay was a surprise birthday present from our children. And what a surprise! The welcome we had from Millie, the basket of goodies and the flowers were lovely. Nice warm and cosy cottage. Very relaxing. Would love to go back.
Beautiful and cosy cottage, lovely welcome basket and will definitely be coming again! Thanks for a great weekend.
Perfect balance of privacy without feeling totally isolated. Lovely cottage, warm welcome, great value.
Fab, fab, fab, cosy, comfy cottage. Have had a lovely break. Coming back in the summer.

Lovely cottage. We have had a much needed relaxing break.
Like so many before us, we have had a wonderful stay at Snow Cottage. Part of the secret is that you are made to feel as if you have been invited to stay for a few days at the house of a friend who has just popped out for a while. If you think this might before you, don�t hesitate. Many thanks.
Had a lovely and relaxing time. Came to celebrate my wife�s birthday and retirement and couldn�t have chosen a better location
All really excellent! Welcome basket was very generous and tasty. Bed was comfy and the shower was spacious. Would love to return.
Perfect cottage, perfect location, very warm welcome & just the perfect country break in every way.
Beautiful cottage and grounds. Very relaxing. Welcome basket fabulous. Had a wonderful time.
It’s mine & Justins first wedding anniversary & we wanted peace in a romantic idyllic setting – which is what we got at Grove Cottages. Beautiful surroundings in a warm, comfortable and well presented cottage.
I think that it would be genuinely hard to improve on this cottage. It has all things that you might possibly want with the added bonus of being warm (how many country cottages I’ve been to & they’ve been cold….)
Gorgeous cottage and grounds, set amidst lovely countryside. Terrific welcome basket on arrival. Will most certainly return.
Snow cottage really relaxing, had a nice time, luv the bedspread !
The sun shone, a good shower, what more could you want? PS: We really like it here. The local information was very good, much better than usual. Suffolk is lovely, so pretty, I’m not surprised that so many artists come from here.
Snow cottage was faultless. Perfect reception on arrival, perfect cottage, perfect location � thank you!! For all my fellow veggies, you must go to the Veggie Red Lion at Great Bricett Fab food, doggie friendly and animal lovers.
Lovely cottage and fantastic welcome basket! The information provided for things to do locally was much appreciated but a weekend certainly wasn�t long enough to do it all � we will be back!

Our�s was a group booking of wedding guests. The cottages are ideal for a family group.
A wonderful find in a beautiful setting. The Suffolk countryside is an absolute delight and the peace and tranquillity was exactly what we needed
Super, quiet little cottage with all you need for your holiday.
We were looking for somewhere �out of the way� at short notice. We found Grove Cottages by chance. We think we have found something quite extra � special… Now, do we tell everyone we know ? … or do we keep it as our secret hideaway?
Really lovely stay. Our dog�s first holiday and he loved all of the walking and open areas. Perfectly quaint cottage. Nice extra touch with a welcome basket of goodies. Will definitely come again.
Was a lovely short break and the heating was lovely for us old folks.
A very pleasing mix of old world charm, quirky character and modern creative comforts. Fantastic place to stay

This was our third stay in one of the Grove Cottages and we loved it! Each time a different cottage, but all equally beautiful.
A real home of a country cottage, welcoming, informal and friendly. Attention to the small details to make your stay so happy and relaxing as possible, loosing yourself in the sweeping beauty of the Suffolk countryside around Grove Cottages.
Repeat visits only make the experience even more enjoyable.
I loved the vintage reclaimed and imaginative interior in the cottage with the lovely herb garden to relax in – Glorious setting and lots of great extras e.g deck chairs to sit and chill in the orchard, even the artwork encouraged us to relax and let go of our daily worries! The cycle routes were fab – landscape and countryside was so much more enjoyable on 2 wheels.
Lovely cottage in a lovely setting!
Idyllic location, the land time forgot – yet only 60 miles from our home! My only worry is that I feel so relaxed here that I fall asleep without effort.
What a lovely relaxing break! The cottage was very cosy and just perfect for us to get away from it all, and the personal touch was carried through by staff from beginning to end. Thoroughly recommended as a country escape and we intend to return.
Smashing. We are connoisseurs of ‘Long Weekends’ and this was up there with the best we have experienced – home and abroad. Outstanding on all fronts – despite awful weather!!
So near to the M25…so far from the pressures of daily life. A great place to unwind.
Lovely peaceful setting. Great cottage.
We have had a fantastic honeymoon at Snow Cottage. The cottage is gorgeous, the weather perfect, Suffolk very relaxing. Our new friends Maxi the cat and the crowd of ducks have been a welcome addition.

Beautiful cottage with a generous welcome, lovely surroundings, all the mod cons and a very friendly cat…would definitely come again at any time of year, a lovely place to stay!
A wonderful retreat for a peaceful and relaxing christmas – perfect ! We will be back as soon as we can.
Like Suffolk beer Snow Cottage is full of character, well balanced and best enjoyed in a great swig of beauty, a sup of frothy joy, savour it slowly, to the great satisfaction it brings to all who intoxicate it !
Just what the doctor ordered, It’s the perfect retreat ! Within a 2 hour drive of London, beautiful walks, and pub, food to die for. All within walking distance of the Snow Cottages front door. I’m so glad we found the Grove Cottages or we would be missing out on one of lifes pleasures. See you soon. Alex, Di, Roxy “The Bichon” and Archie “The Springer”
Fantastic, thanks ! Great walks, lovely cottage.
Who would have thought a holiday in England, in November could be so great. I really looked forward to returning, after a days expolring, to my cosy, warm and comfortable cottage for a glass of wine, local organic food and a good book. Absolute bliss!
We didn’t think this attention to detail existed anymore. We will be returning.
Lovely cosy cottage, great dog walks in surrounding area and amazing farmshops!
Cosy and comfortable. Quiet and relaxing. Well equiped. A little gem ! Thank you so much.
Excellent interior design, the guidebook recommendation were extremely helpfull. In all we had a very relaxing time here.
Very comfortable and very peaceful – just what I wanted. The welcome basket was excellent and I enjoyed Maxi’s visit
Great way to escape London for a weekend – makes me resent my life of the tube and office even more ! P.s. Max the cat is awesome.
Glorious autumn sunshine for a relaxing, cosy break. Welcome basket for humans and welcome bonio for canines – a very nice touch ! Thank you for sending us the link to the rowing boats, great fun !
Found this cottage just by chance, how lucky we were. Fab cottage and location, just a few miles from home but feels like a different country. Snow cottage is comfy, cosy and quirky and very dog friendly, but we are not sure the chickens enjoyed meeting him when he escaped!! We would like a return visit to Grove Cottages.
A delightful stay in a delightful cottage in delightful Suffolk – very many thanks.
We’ve had the most lovely time in south Suffolk, exploring all the nooks and crannies of medieval England at it’s best. Grove Cottages is a fantastic haven in which to start and end your days.
I came here with my bridesmaids to get ready, then came back with my husband. What a beautiful place to put the perfect end to the perfect day.
Snow cottage is a great base from which to explore Suffolk and North Essex. It was always a comfortable sight to come home to after a busy day sight seeing. Top of the list if we ever venture to Suffolk in the future.
Beautiful cottage and location. Perfect for exploring Suffolk and having a relaxing holiday. Thank you.
Snow cottage was lovely and cosy. We found being here really peaceful and relaxing. There are loads of great places to visit and walk nearby. ‘Tranquil’ is the word that comes to mind.
Snow cottage has been an ideal country retreat, perfect for exploring the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Our stay has been everything we hoped for.
Had a fantastic time at Grove Cottages, will definately come back soon!
Excellent accommodation and lovely, peaceful, rural setting. We were really able to unwind and relax – local wildlife very entertaining – ducks, birds and cat! Thank you for a lovely holiday.
This is a lovely quiet place to spend time relaxing.
We stay in Snow cottage every time we come from the states. We love this little cottage, perfect for two, nicely decorated, bright and airy with high beamed ceilings throughout.
Beautiful place which exceeded our expectations, lovely atmosphere – quiet, peaceful but more than enough to do. We have loved our stay with Grove Cottages.
We wanted to explore a part of England we had not experienced before and enjoy it with our dog. Snow cottage was just the answer and we have really been suprised by Suffolk. You gave us a really good welcome and the country has so much to offer. Lovely countryside, lots of good country pubs and wonderful for dog walking. Open footpaths everywhere. We will be back again.
Yet again we have had a fantastic stay at the cottages, it’s been truely lovely and we cannot wait to come again!
Everything we were looking for to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Good price, good local food, lovely walks, felt so relaxed after being here. Thank you.
We have had a great time at the Snow cottage, after one day there we were already talking about coming back. We’ve been looking for a place to get away from our hectic jobs and this is a perfect country retreat. See you soon x
We had a blissful time, staying in Snow Cottage. It was very cosy, even without an open fire. We’re planning to come back for part of our honeymoon later this year!
A true home from home. Every little details attended to. Absolute rustic charm. Great guides to local area. Very friendly welcome.
3 wonderful weeks of peace and comfort in Snow Cottage. Location superb with everything you need in the cottage to make your stay enjoyable.
Fabulous accommodation in rural Suffolk. Everything you could possibly wish for. Excellent facilities and the warmest & friendliest welcome you could want. Many Many Thanks!
Grove Cottages is a fantastic place to come for a relaxing time. You are made very welcome on arrival. We cannot think of a better place to stay than Grove Cottages, to discover this beautiful part of Suffolk.
A very enjoyable 2 weeks. Very cosy cottage with everything you could want to make a pleasant stay. Maxi made our stay a joy – what a gorgeous cat!
A lovely cottage, reminded us of Wind In The Willows! Cosy, private – a great chilled out break. Our dog Roxy loved the walks and the pubs were dog-friendly! Each village was quaint and pretty. WE will definitely come back!
It was perfect…for a weary Londoner…a little slice of heaven indeed!
We have had a truly wonderful holiday. This was our first break away with our 11 month old baby. The cottage was really cosy and we

Grove Cottages are quiet, comfortable and well-placed for exploring beautiful Suffolk
Grove Cottages offers the perfect escape only 2 hours from London and you feel like you are in another world! Marks passion for his special place and surroundings is truly contagious! But best of all Grove Cottages offer the best of both worlds the chance to do nothing or activities in the English countryside
A warm welcome and a beautiful cottage, sent us into relax mode within fifteen minutes of arriving. Come rain or shine this is the perfect antidote to real life. Well be back.
We arrived as two frazzled teachers from London and left as two relaxed and happy people. We cycled, walked, fed the ducks and stroked the cat, it was magic. We were made to feel very welcome upon our arrival. We fell in love with the cottage immediately.
Idyllic setting. Mark and staff are very welcoming. Wonderfully quiet with interesting and convivial resident fauna.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay
A perfect bolt hole in a beautiful cottage for us and our pets. Lovely surroundings and a very welcoming host. All put together with flair and imagination
Perfect weekend away from London! Everything we expected and more, totally recommend it!!!

The holiday can be complete simply enjoying the beautiful accommodation and surrounding countryside for walking and cycling. Throw away the car keys for the duration!!
Stylish rusticity in the heart of beautiful Suffolk, combined with a genuine welcome for dogs
We wish we could have stayed longer than a weekend ! The whole thing was pretty inspirational really. Mark has created an idyllic little getaway and the Welcome we got was ideal and actually pretty integral to the whole experience. Lovely furnishings, candles etc – very well tailored to what we were after.
Hi Mark, Thank you for continuing to send us your newsletters about the cottages – I forward them onto colleagues of mine looking for great short breaks! When I booked the last break we had, for Valentines week, my name was Heather Lay – you may remember me as the lady who burned the kettle! On Valentines day itself, Michael got down on one knee and proposed – so the picture of Snow Cottage brings back lovely memories. Since then, we have married & living in wedded bliss. So thank you for that – thanks to you we have some very special memories of those wonderful few days
It was awesome !
No other word but FABULOUS!
We have felt that The Grove team have made it a matter of personal pride to provide a beautiful, spotlessly clean cottage, and warm and informative welcome. They have gone on to respond to any concerns during the week speedily, but without any fuss. We could not have been more delighted.
I have never seen something more beautiful than this. All the cottages are decorated with love and care, for every single detail.
Believe the comments & pictures on the website – Its great here – very relaxing & cosy, plus it comes with a free cat!!
What a great surprise the Welcome Pack was, we have been self catering 30 years and this is the first Welcome Pack we
Idyllic cottage in a beautiful part of the world. Thanks for the warm welcome and directions to so many stunning villages
First Class Accommodation. Everything we needed was provided
What a marvellous area this is! It has to be one of the most beautiful areas in Great Britain and there is so much to do. The accommodation and the site are excellent. It is great to have such a good central location.
What a delightful place! The pillows and bed were so comfortable and snug, almost a shame to get up! A most beautiful piece of England and so peaceful. Thank you for the hamper!
Wonderfully relaxing environment. What every townie longs for (whether they know it or not) and what every local takes for granted. These three days of peace will see me through the next three months of London
Thank you for providing such a lovely accommodation in beautiful surroundings. It
Mark, you have found the famous formula of location, amenity and friendliness that everyone who wants to get away should be looking for! Three weeks of bliss, thank you.
In all our travels around the UK, we have never found a more beautiful spot. Little hamlets & thatched cottages throughout the area. And the ambience of The Grove Cottages! just what we like. Great local pubs with excellent food, favourite place Lavenham & further afield, Orford for the oysters. Wish we had another week!
A fantastic cosy cottage in a complex of lovely little places to stay. Very stylish and had everything you would need and more, including a lovely local food basket on arrival, bikes and tons of local information. A really good location within walking distance of a great pub, and a short drive from lots of Suffolk’s prettiest villages. Would definitely recommend!
