A postcard perfect holiday cottage with beautiful interiors, charming gardens and views over Kersey, the prettiest village in Suffolk!

Described in The Observer as a 'quintessentially English' Thatched Cottage. And The Times wax lyrical about the location…  "Suffolk has dozens of beautiful villages, but none matches Kersey for sheer eye-catching perfection." There are so many accolades for this charming holiday cottage and village but why not come and see for yourself… Dating back to the Tudor times, Priory Holme oozes character with beamed ceilings, large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and broad wooden oak floorboards on the first floor. Accommodation is cottage style with pretty furnishings throughout. The three bedroom accommodation has the benefit of two bathrooms and plenty of living space for six guests. The traditional well equipped kitchen is well set up for your self catering holiday and the sitting room has comfortable seating for all, complete with well stocked bookshelves… perfect for curling up with your favourite read in front of the stove. Outside there’s a charming cottage garden for relaxing, an orchard and a pretty lilly clad pond.

Considered one of Britain's 10 best villages, Kersey is a quintessential medieval village. In the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Take a stroll up the road to  The Bell for a pint or dinner and simply relax… the views are pretty awesome too!

A beautiful period property that wears its age well.

Mr Fraser M

A period property that typifies Kersey and it's heritage. We stayed in December it would be glorious in summer.
