Enjoy a peaceful break in this characterful cottage that sits in a pretty and charming Suffolk village
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Set in a quintessential Suffolk village, the Water Cottage, a lovely 15th Century weaver's cottage, offers everything you would want from a stay in a period property.
The timber framed cottage oozes character from every floorboard, and every wooden beam, and from the Inglenook fireplace to the roll top bath.
On entering the cottage you are welcomed by the huge fireplace, which acts as the centrepiece to the living area, which, just as the rest of property, is beautifully furnished in a style sympathetic to the age of the cottage. Velvet, Chesterfield-style sofas make the perfect spot to cosy up in after long days exploring the wonderful Suffolk countryside. To the side of the living area is the dining area, oak furniture and willow patterned plates really add to the character, as does an additional fireplace. What could be more atmospheric than enjoying cosy suppers in front of an open fire?
There is a further coffee room and small, but well-equipped, kitchen, which overlooks the pretty enclosed garden where you can enjoy al fresco dining on the lovely lawns. The property has three bedrooms, two kingsize double and bunkbeds, and a family bathroom which features a lovely roll top bath and hand shower.
Water Cottage is in the heart of the village of Kersey, affectionately known as 'The Splash'. The village has gained some notoriety after it was featured in a television commercial well known for it's talking meerkats! It is regarded as one of Suffolk's prettiest villages and has a historic pub, The Bell, a ford and a church. There are many pretty walks from Kersey and, with the medieval village of Hadleigh just a five minute stroll away, it makes a great base for exploring this pretty corner of England which has served as inspiration to some of Britain's most famous artists.
Guests will find many of the locations around Kersey instantly recognisable from the paintings of Constable. Many, including the famous 'Haywain' were inspired by locations near the village. For visitors yearning for the seaside, the Suffolk coast is an hour's drive away. The unspoilt Aldeburgh is a lovely seaside village, with a good restaurants and arts scene. Good eats closer to Kersey include The Bell and The White Horse at Edwardstone, which has its own micro-brewery.
