Dating back to the early 1800s, The Golden Cross in Mendham along with its neighbouring cottage The Kiln are Grade II listed cottages situated within the owners grounds which have been cleverly converted into holiday accommodation. The Golden Cross is a single storey cottage accommodating up to four guests in the most comfortable surroundings with everything you could need for a self-catering break on hand.

The cottage is accessed by French doors from the front patio area which lead into the open plan room consisting of your living space, dining area and kitchen. With wood flooring throughout, this area is perfect for your pet to curl up and enjoy your company whether you’re dining, relaxing or cooking up a feast.

There’s a choice of two bedrooms with the master having a king size bed and the second bedroom having two single beds. Both bedrooms feature ceiling beams and come with large wardrobes for storing personal items, with the twin bedroom having a dressing table and stool.

Outside there’s a small enclosed patio area private to the cottage, in addition, guests can also take advantage of the owner’s garden.

Mendham is perfectly placed for exploring the Waveney Valley with its glorious landscapes waiting to be found by foot or bicycle. A day out on the Waveney water is a must - be it by boat or canoe - you can even book mini cruises for short trips. You’ll find local tourist information centres packed with route maps, cycle leaflets and further information on all attractions and days out whilst exploring this part of Suffolk. Don’t forget if a trip to the coast is on your agenda the postcard coastal town of Southwold with its colourful beach huts and award winning Pier is just 18 miles away by car.
