Cocketts is a 16th century listed cottage nestled along a country lane in the heart of Suffolk. It has oak beams, wonky floors and a large inglenook fireplace with log burning stove. However it is equipped to a high standard with all mod-cons expected these days; comfy seating, quality linen, an attic den with PS3 and games and toys for all ages. Sleeping 6 in 2 kingsize bedrooms, and a twin, there is also a double futon, if needed, and 1 kingsize bed can be made into a further twin if preferred. There is an acre of garden, with an enclosed 'safe' area for little ones which has the benefit of a wooden playhouse and outdoor toys. There is a patio and seating to enjoy the evening sun, a large grassy area and an old orchard with tree swing and picnic table, which provides for further adventure or relaxation. The garden is visited by a wide variety of bird and wildlife, and in season provides apples, pears, sloes, quince, walnuts and damsons. There are walks from the door, perfect if you are bringing the dog, and it is easy and flat for cycling. The owners live next door and keep chickens and friendly pygmy goats.

Despite a feeling of being 'in the middle of nowhere', Cocketts is easy to get to , and is well placed for exploring the many local picturesque villages, the Suffolk heritage coast, Constable Country, as well as Norwich, Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds. Suffolk has a wealth of farmers' markets, pubs and restaurants that pride themselves on high class local produce that will keep you well fed. There are plenty of places of interest to visit, and books, maps and information is kept up to date to help you make the most of your stay. Cocketts itself has an interesting history with links to the early Quakers and the English Civil War.

The East Anglia region

Visit Suffolk and your senses will be brought to life. From the wetland Broads in the north to the beautiful Wool Towns in the south; the shimmering greenery of the west to the stunning Suffolk Coast in the east - Suffolk offers some incredible sights. A holiday in Suffolk is all about sheer indulgence in wide open countryside and beautiful coastline, savouring incredible local food and drink and a wonderful range of luxury accommodation.

Enjoy a family break in Suffolk and explore a UK county that has so much happening, from hidden walking and cycle routes to festivals, events and farmers' markets. In Suffolk, tourism is all about fun, indulgence and creating experiences to remember.

You've probably seen countless pictures and paintings of Suffolk. But we want you to go one step further - to experience our beautiful, vibrant county. To smell the flowers that line the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds. Taste the finest fish and chips as the tide creeps in at Aldeburgh. Or hear the thunderous last furlong at Newmarket.


The local historic village of Mendlesham offers a pub, shop and fish and chips, as well as a medieval church that hosts a rare collection of ancient weaponry, and an annual May Fayre with stalls and Morris men etc. The area is mainly agricultural with many pretty villages that are worth a visit. Stowmarket (5 miles) provides for all day to day needs in terms of large supermarkets. There is easy access to Bury St Edmunds, Lavenham, Constable Country and the Suffolk Heritage coast, and a little further afield is Cambridge, Norwich and the Norfolk Broads. Farm parks, zoos, castles, museums, NT properties and the beach are all about a half hour drive away.

The area is good for walking and cycling, there are 2 leisure centres (1 with a swimming pool) within 6 miles, and 2 golf courses within 20 minutes.

"Utter bliss."

What a beautiful cottage, perfect break, lovely friendly owners and serene surroundings. As a family who visits Suffolk frequently we have stayed in various cottages but this one has proved to be the best. We came across this cottage by accident, but we are so glad we did. It is perfect for families of all ages and also couples. Our children didn't want to leave the cottage it was a dream come true.we will definatly return and spread the word of where to stay.

Louise - thanks for the review. I hope to see you back here soon. Doug
