The Guildhall is a picture-perfect thatched cottage which dates back to the 16th century and is set in a very lovely part of the picturesque Dedham Vale- Higham. With wonderful wooden beams, a wood burner and a beautiful private garden, this is a very appealing country cottage.

The private garden is enclosed and edged by mature trees and shrubs and is a lovely place to relax with its corners of shelter and sun spots for outside dining. Inside the Guildhall, a spacious sitting room with plenty of comfy sofas, chairs and a woodburning stove is a great place to relax with friends or family. Within the farmhouse style kitchen, the Aga adds warmth and atmosphere, whilst the vaulted ceiling gives a light and airy feel. The spacious dining room which seats up to 8 is perfect for enjoying some good old country hospitality. A cosy log burning stove is also a feature of this room and adds to the magical setting of this charming property.

South Suffolk is a very unspoilt and rural area even though it is so close to London and the Midlands. It is defined by The River Stour which was immortalised by the Master Painter John Constable and by the Suffolk coast where hidden inlets, where Vikings raided (Sutton Hoo) and where heathlands sweep down to the sea. The immediate area is a maze of tiny lanes meandering through tiny Suffolk Pink Hamlets and Villages. An ideal place to relax in and discover unspoilt England. Only 90 mins from London - it's a great weekend escape cottage.
