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.


Historic Features

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.


Some of our Historic Cottages:

Wren CottageJust fifteen minutes from the wonderful seaside location of Aldeburgh lies Wren Cottage in Wickham Market. Wren Cottage includes features such as, a pretty courtyard with a bench, a table, chairs and barbecue facilities, a beautiful roaring log burner and an Aga type cooker to prepare some tasty meals.

Rafe Hall Coach House: A bold, contemporary cottage with an artistic touch, dates back to the early 1500’s and was once used as a Merchants home and double fronted shop.
