The Byre – traditional Suffolk cottage

This charming three bedroom cottage is attached to the owner’s beautiful Grade II listed 16th century house via a covered walkway in the traditional Suffolk village of Brent Eleigh, two miles from Lavenham in Suffolk.

This delightful property has been sympathetically built in keeping with the main property yet combining character features with modern living and would suit a family or couples wishing to explore this wonderful area.

Suffolk is famous for its antiques and picturesque villages in rolling countryside and also offers excellent walking and cycling.

Step in to this wonderful property and you immediately get a feel for the quality within.

There is a hand-built traditional kitchen and a comfortable sitting room with woodburning stove, ideal for catching a movie after a day out exploring.

There is a dining room, a downstairs double bedroom and a bathroom with a door from both the bedroom and the hall.

Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms, a double and a twin room (zip/link, can be super king-size double on request).

Outside offers a wonderful cottage-style garden shared with the owners, with lovely quiet places to sit and relax with a book on a summer’s day.

There are numerous footpaths on your doorstep and the local pub is just a short walk away, where you can grab some pub grub after a day out exploring.

Just up the road is the wonderful village of Lavenham, steeped in history and well-served with shops, restaurants, pubs and takeaways.

The area offers so much to do, from visiting a number of medieval villages scattering the area with fabulous Tudor architecture, to enjoying the countryside by foot or by cycle!

We are confident this will be a property you will return to again and again, whatever the time of the year.

Guests Comment

“The cottage was beautiful, like staying in a gingerbread house! Everything was spotless and perfect, a real home from home. The beds were comfy with gorgeous duvets. The owners made us so welcome. We would certainly hope to return to The Byre.”
