The Cottage in Charsfield is a pretty timber framed property dating from the 17th Century which has been lovingly decorated and furnished by the owners to create a cosy self-catering holiday retreat for you to enjoy. There is a wealth of period features throughout including beams, a beautiful fireplace and quirky cottage stairs. Surrounding The Cottage is a lovely garden for you to relax and enjoy during the warmer season - there is even a delightful summerhouse creating an extra outdoor dining area. The fully-equipped kitchen has all you could need to rustle up a fantastic cuisine during your holiday. The sitting room is the heart of this home and comes complete with a woodburner to keep guests warm and toasty on a cold winter’s day. The three bedrooms make this cottage perfect for a family although they would also be suitable for a couple and small group of friends looking for a peaceful and relaxing slice of the good life in rural Suffolk.

The house was lovely, exactly what we had hoped for. The location was ideal to take the dog for a quick walk in the morning and the villagers were very friendly. It was a great idea to receive a local food parcel.

Mrs Dawn Z,

Beautiful chocolate box cottage- very idyllic and peaceful.

Previous Customer,

Very quaint property and nicely situated

Past Customer,

Like before, lovely old cosy cottage, much like home. Lovely comfy nights sleep.

Previous Customer,

We had very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the cottage. We felt very comfortable and at home and found it very well equipped. The tranquillity of the surrounding countryside was wonderful

Previous Customer,

The cottage was beautifully presented with lots of character. It had been decorated for Christmas as requested and offered a very generous welcome pack. I was very impressed by the large quantity of kitchen equipment available and it was a real pleasure to cook Christmas dinner in. It does have very low beams and a quirky cottage staircase to keep you on your toes!
