Self catering holiday cottage rentals in Clare, Suffolk, England

Clare is reputed to be one of Suffolk’s smallest towns and in many ways has a village feel.  If you are searching for somewhere picturesque in Suffolk for a cottage holiday then Clare could be just right for you.  Nestled amongst beautiful unspoilt countryside, Clare is a wool town with a wealth of historical quaint buildings which include pretty cottages, thatched cottages and timber clad buildings.  Some of these date back to Victorian times, some Georgian and some medieval times.  In total there are 131 listed buildings in Clare, making Clare one of Suffolk’s best places for beautiful historical architecture.  Enjoy browsing for country and rural cottages in and near Clare, we have cottages to suit all types of groups; pet-friendly cottages, for couples, for the disabled and more.

Brightly coloured painted houses are a feature of this area and so are houses decorated with pargetting, a technique unique to the East Anglian region.  Clare boasts an impressive Gothic church and the centre of the town is a protected conservation area.  The town also benefits from a number of country pubs, gift shops, antique shops and art galleries.

Situated in the Heart of Suffolk, Clare is in an excellent location when it comes to branching out and visiting some of Suffolk’s best towns.  A visit to Lavenham and Long Melford come highly recommended as do a visit to the quaint Essex village of Finchingfield with its idyllic duck pond.  Most of these places are just an easy drive away of around 10 miles or so.  Hedingham Castle and its gardens are also well worth a visit.

Within Clare there is a good country park with 25 acres of countryside to discover.  The remains of Clare Castle stand high on the castle mound and an excellent network of nature trails lead you around the park and by the river.  Clare is an award winning village which has won accolades for its floral displays as well as being recognised as ‘Suffolk Village of the Year’ for three years running now.

There is plenty to see and do within Clare on a cottage holiday and plenty of opportunities to simply take it easy if you prefer.  Sudbury is just 9 miles away, Saffron Walden 17 miles and Bury St Edmunds 20 miles away.  Whether you opt to rent a small cottage in Clare or a large family cottage, we hope you find good quality accommodation and that you have a wonderful time in Suffolk.
