Characterful thatched cottage with private enclosed garden
Cottage in Foxearth, near Long Melford, Suffolk. Ideal for touring the Fens in the west to Constable country in the east.
Part of the cottage originally formed the end section of a small aisled hall built in the 13th century with later additions from the 1600s to date. Whilst retaining its charm and character, it has been sensitively refurbished/restored in recent years to provide very attractive accommodation. One of the more recent additions is an oak veranda on the side of the property which provides a very pleasant place to sit with t cup of tea or a glass of wine!
The cottage is situated on a quiet lane with views over the grounds of a large country house. There are several footpaths near to the cottage and easy access to the south Suffolk cycle route. There is designated parking for two cars at the front of the property. The garden is enclosed.
The cottage has three bedrooms, a king, a twin and a single, sleeping five in total. A cot is available for a little one. Bedlinen, including cot bedding if needed, is provided along with towels and tea towels. Use of high chair and stairgate. The stairs are in keeping with a property of this age. There is a door at the bottom of the stairs, a stairgate can be fitted at the top of the stairs.
The dining room is an attractive beamed room with large oak table and chairs. French doors open onto the small back terrace. This room leads into the comfortably furnished sitting room with flat screen TV with DVD player and ipod connection. WI-fi is provided.
A pretty country kitchen with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with small freezer compartment, microwave. The washing machine is located in the out house.
