A charming two-bedroom thatched cottage oozes character, with beams to the Tudor stone floor and a huge fireplace for those cosy winter evenings set in a peaceful location offering a unique stay.

Nestled on the edge of Constable Country, with many beautiful Suffolk villages in easy reach, such as Boxford, Lavenham, Dedham, Flatford, Hadleigh, Long Melford and Clare with the latter two being renowned for their antique shops and boutiques. Colchester is just seven miles and offers a castle, museums, zoo, excellent sports & leisure facilities, cinema, shopping and good restaurants. The surrounding area is ideal for walking and cycling and inspired John Constable’s fine paintings of nearby Dedham Vale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Castle Hedingham is nearby with its Norman Motte and Bailey, the Moat is one of the finest still standing in Europe. The coastline of Suffolk and Essex are both within easy reach, making this a location with something for everyone.

Stepping into the cottage, you will enter into the charming lounge/diner. The first thing you will notice is the prominent inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel burner which can be used as an open fire and will keep you toasty on those winter evenings. The characterful beams date back to the 1500’s and the room is lined with a Tudor stone floor. There is ample comfortable seating, alongside a dining table. Leading through to the kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and microwave. The kitchen looks over the garden and has a door that leads directly outside. The spacious downstairs bathroom offers bath, shower and WC. Head up the steep winding staircase to the two bedrooms, one double and one twin, with pretty countryside views being enjoyed from each window.

Outside, the rear garden offers a patio area leading to a  lawn lined with mature shrubs and there is a lovely summer house with a fire pit outside. The small front garden has space to park one car and there is shared off-road parking for an additional car. There is a charcoal BBQ available to use.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Blossom Cottage. It felt homely and welcoming the first moment we arrived. Chip (my dog) loved the garden and bringing me apples from the tree! Very relaxing stay and would definitely recommend.

Blossom Cottage was just lovely - extremely comfortable. The stairs could be a bit tricky for the less able. Welcome hamper on arrival was much appreciated and the fresh flowers were a lovely touch. Lovely walks from the door and fascinating places to visit. We really enjoyed it all.

A charming character cottage, well equipped with large garden perfect for our dog. Good location for exploring local attractions, coast only 40 mins away. Owners went to great lengths to ensure we had a comfortable stay. Made our first holiday with our dog stress free.

Lovely cosy cottage. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Located in a quiet, picturesque south Suffolk village. Good location for walking and medieval villages. Dog friendly garden! Would visit again

Reviewed by Garry, 21st July 2017

When booking a break often the pictures in a brochure or on line look great but sometimes don't always match up when you arrive, but this cottage was fantastic and felt homely as soon as we opened the door. the garden was great for the dogs who had a great time chasing each other. The owner had taken time to provide a brilliant folder of informatioRead moren of places to go and about the history of the building itself, it was perfect. Hide

Beautiful cottage and enclosed garden with lovely walks from the doorstep. Lavenham, Dedham and Long Melford all within easy reach. A great place to enjoy the Suffolk countryside. Local pub serves great food just down the road.
