Situated in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, Grove House Farm Cottage provides perfect ground floor accommodation for four. Formerly the groomsman's cottage, the property has been converted to create the perfect self-catering holiday in Suffolk. 

Just a short drive from the bustling coast at Southwold and Aldeburgh, Grove House Farm Cottage escapes the noise and rush to provide total tranquillity. On the same site as the owners stables, the cottage is totally private with a parking area and a lovely garden overlooking the open countryside. The whole site is secure with a gated entrance so guests can totally relax and re-charge their batteries in this picturesque part of the county. 

The cottage comprises of an open plan living area with dining, kitchen and sitting space. The kitchen provides all that one could need to dine in, whilst the sitting area provides the ultimate retreat to cuddle up with a book and a glass of wine... Two separate bedrooms, one king and one twin/king sized bed (please specify at the time of booking) are just waiting to beckon you after a long journey - each with built-in wardrobes.

Outside, guests have access to a separate games and gym room complete with table tennis, pool table, dart board, punch bag, weights and treadmill. This is a great option for keeping fit or for family tournaments! Surrounded by fruit trees (guests are welcome to help themselves to produce) a separate garden area circles a large open pond (accessed by the driveway) - a summer house, with electric access, takes in the surroundings where you can sit back and watch the fish and terrapins darting through the water. Don't forget to pack your binoculars as a variety of bird life also frequently visit, including owls and herons. For children, a small flock of sheep are also waiting to greet you; all friendly, they run to the fence to greet you! The garden and the surroundings change throughout the year - with golden hues in Autumn to the luscious greens in Summer - we recommend seeing it in all seasons. 

Why we love this property: After long days spent walking through the Suffolk fields, dump your muddy boots in the outdoor cloakroom and enjoy playing a board game within the four walls of this comfortable cottage. The nearby games room and gym is perfect for keeping fit with the exercise equipment or by playing a game of table tennis.

Set in a beautiful, and very peaceful location. Owners family live on same site, they were very welcoming and friendly.

Mr Barry L,

Me and my family had a wonderful stay at the cottage. Great location to explore the local beaches and our favourite one Covehithe. Halesworth itself is lovely; lovely park and 'focus organic' cafe was really nice. Had a lovely meal at 'Massala Garden' curry house in Hales. Would definitely recommend to others to stay here.

The Fickling Family,

A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Loved seeing the horses and sheep everyday. Games room was great and we enjoyed teaching our child how to play pool and table tennis! The cottage was centrally placed perfectly for us to see family in Norfolk and Ipswich. Thank you for the welcome gifts. Thank you so much.

The Holland Family,

A fantastic cottage in a lovely, quiet part of Suffolk. Very comfortable and great facilities. Our dog enjoyed the huge garden. The area is fantastic with so much to do. Recommend Mrs Ts in Southwold for the best fish & chips ever! Thank you to Carl for being a superb host. We hope to come back again

The Nicholson Family,

Lovely place for a relaxing week - quiet and comfortable. We had a great time exploring the area - highlights include the town trail in Halesworth, a picnic by the river in Bungay, a boat along the river from Beccles to Geldeston ( hired from Hipperson) a walk in Walberswick, people-watching in Southwold and the food at Darsham Nurseries. We didn't manage to do everything we wanted to do so I guess we'll just have to come back again!

Thomas Family,

Lovely cottage, perfectly equipped. We loved the games room. Great location, thank you for the cake as we arrived. Will be happy to recommend this lovely place! Many thanks to the hosts they were helpful and friendly.

Deborah C,

Shhh! Can you hear anything? No, nor could we, so lovely and quiet, no traffic or people even the sheep were quiet. Lovely little cottage, chosen as all on one level. Great sociable living space with well equipped kitchen. Hosts friendly and helpful. Thanks for setting out the garden chairs, very welcome on our return. Great location very handy fr the coast in this beautiful rural setting.

A lovely, peaceful and rural spot. Comfy cottage, great DVD collection and much versatile space. Games room PERFECT! Friendly proprietors. We don't know very much about horses, but very therapeutic being in close proximity. Thank you
