The area:

The cottage is located close to the Sotterley Estate which holds various local events throughout the year including the pony club meetings and horse trails around the estate. The estate is well known for the snowdrops in the grounds in the spring and is a haven for song birds and other wildlife, supported by the combination of sensitve farming methods, traditional field sports and 400 acres of carefully managed mixed woodland.  

As well as being close to the Suffolk Coast and nearby market town of Beccles, The Granary is also within easy reach of beautiful historic houses like Somerleyton and other National Trust properties, the castles at Bungay and Framlingham, wildlife sancturaries at MinsmereCarlton Marshes and Lopham Fen as well as local farmers markets, farm shops, restaurants and pubs.


The Granary has central heating and WiFi. 

A small basket of logs and kindling is provided on arrival in the winter months (November-March)

Two medium-sized well behaved dogs are welcome at the cottage but should be kept under control whilst walking in the countryside as the cottage is located within the Sotterley Estate where country pursuits take place. We ask that dogs do not go on the furniture. A dog bath and shower is provided on the terrace!

What a beautiful place to stay - surrounded by stunning countryside yet within easy reach of towns and coastal walks! Quality of accommodation was excellent, furnished to a very high standard, with lovely bits and pieces to make it feel homely. Log burner at the ready, although it is a warm building so we didn’t need to use it. Great nights sleep for all in super comfy beds. Fully equipped kitchen (and I do like to cook when I’m away) so all good for us!

Mrs C,

It’s often difficult to find a high end property that is good for a family with a dog. However, this property ticks all the boxes! A charming property a short drive from Southwold. The property has been thoughtfully designed and there’s great attention to detail. For colder days, there’s the cosy living room and log burner and for warmer ones, there’s quiet outdoor space to relax. Highly recommend this property.

Mrs S,

The Granary is a comfortable cottage in a great location, route 31 for cyclists makes it easy for cyclists to enjoy the quiet roads.

Dr M,

Very well equipped accommodation with lovely log burner and plenty of logs. Good location to explore Suffolk from.
