Property Description

Nestling in 15 acres of ancient meadows, woodland and orchard on the slopes of the Alde valley, these three holiday cottages have been sensitively converted from the outbuildings of nearby Cransford Hall. Featuring an Edwardian walled garden, the grounds are a refuge for a variety of wild birds, including owls. Of individual style and character, the cottages boast exceptionally well-equipped kitchens and fittings, furnishings and fabrics of the highest quality. Each has its own private garden area with furniture, all enjoy shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, pool table, table tennis and a children’s area with toys and games. There are excellent walks, too, and facilities for croquet and other lawn games. The owner, who lives nearby, is a gourmet cook and offers evening meals for delivery to the cottages (only by prior direct arrangement). Within walking distance is Bruisyard with its Saxon church. Framlingham (4 miles) is a small market town with shops, restaurants and inns; in its picturebook setting, the 12th-century castle dominates the town. Sutton Hoo, with its visitor centre, is just a 20-minute drive away. Aldeburgh (about 12 miles) is popular for sailing and famous for its music festival and concerts at Snape Maltings. The coastal area is an excellent one for bird-watching, particularly at the RSPB reserve of Minsmere (10 miles). Sports centre, golf and riding all within 20 minutes’ drive.

Offering convenient accommodation all on one floor, this cottage has its own patio. Large, comfortable living room with south-facing windows overlooking orchard , dining area and wood-burning stove. Arch to fully fitted and equipped Spanish-chestnut kitchen. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Full-size bunk bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet. Spacious shower room with toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great way to spend a few days over New Years Eve. We had a wonderful time at the Pottery. Local supermarket/town was only a 5 minute drive away. Cottage had everything we needed, and was very comfortable. We arrived late in the evening due to bad driving conditions, and the cottage had been left open for us, with the fire lit and the Christmas tree lights on, making it very warm and cosy. Mince pies and milk had also been left, which was lovely touch. Games room was great, and the sounding grounds were lovely, very peaceful. We enjoyed ourselves hugely and would recommend to anyone. Dec 2011.
  2. This is the best christmas holiday we have had the cottage was comfortable the children enjoyed our stay and asked when we can come back, the owner was very helpful. Dec 2011.
  3. Excellent property and excellent hosts. Really enjoyed the holiday. Lots of different things to do in the area and yet plenty of time to relax in the surroundings of the Clock House. We would recommend the White Horse at Sibton and Lemon Tree Bistro in Framlingham. Fish and Chips in Aldeburgh should not be missed. Aug 2011.
  4. Very tranquil location. Owners very friendly and helpful, but do not intrude. Local pubs serve very good food. March 2011.
  5. Layout, attention to detail, it had everything we needed and more. It is the best property we have booked in a long time. Feb 2011.
  6. Lovely setting in the beautiful autumn countryside. Cottage very comfortable and kitchen the best equipped we have ever had. Very efficient woodburner! Our teenage children liked the games room and we borrowed some excellent games from the games room to play in the evenings. Oct 2010.
  7. Generous living room enabled us to have a great space to eat and be social at the same time as the children played. Good accommodation for hot weather as the trees surrounding the property offered some shelter meaning the temperature inside was comfortable. June 2010.
  8. It was accessible for those with mobility problems although not for a wheelchair. Well equipped kitchen. Style was modern but comfortable, good TV equipment. Level access to car parking. May 2010.
  9. A great location for exploring Central and coastal Suffolk but in a beautiful and tranquil setting. April 2009.
  10. We had a lovely break at the pottery. There was loads of space indoors and out for the children, who had a great time exploring the grounds. The cottage was very comfortable and very accessible for a disabled member of our party. Although we hadn’t come far for our break, we really felt we had "got away from it all". The option for the owners to cook our evening meals was a fantastic added bonus - and one we highly recommend people take advantage of! Feb 2009.
  11. Quiet and secluded location, good access to grounds, good games room for children, croquet was a hit with the kids. Accommodation was good. Good class accommodation, with character, in ample grounds. Only a shortish drive to the beaches and places of interest. July 2009.
