Historic Holiday Cottages
My beautiful Historic Cottages – Grade I & II listed Holiday Cottages
‘Ever dreamt of waking up in a beautiful historic cottage, so meticulously restored it feels like you’ve stepped back in time?’
We have a wonderful selection of historic cottages from the 14th to 19th Century. Many of them Grade listed buildings, and all lovingly restored to reveal their original charm and beautiful, quirky atmosphere.
Historic Holiday Cottages set in rural Suffolk
Here at Grove Cottages we specialise in holiday cottages that are steeped in history, which help make your stay with us even more memorable.
Our historical holiday cottages go back as far as the 14th century and have all been lovingly restored to keep their features as original as possible. Locations include Lavenham, England’s best preserved medieval village, Kersey, a tiny hamlet amongst the rolling countryside of Suffolk, and Dedham, a village where John Constable spent much of his time.
As a Grade II listed building, these historic holiday cottages are known to have some kind of significant or historical interest, and to rent one of these self catering cottages is a really exceptional experience to cherish.
Each historic holiday cottage has its own unique features; 18th century kitchen ranges, Breton beds (also known as box-beds that look like cupboards, but are in fact beds), ancient bread ovens, old brick floors, magnificent old beams, wattle and daub walls, thatched roofs and Inglenook fireplaces.
Where possible, the owners have furnished the cottages with period furniture and wonderful antiques, beautifully restored surfaces, stunning textiles and the absolute finest attention to detail; combining together to provide a completely original and unique experience for you to treasure.
