Charming Sleeps 5 Cottage near Lavenham

Orchard Cottage was created out of the old hay and pigeon lofts that made up part of the long Eastern wall of the old enclosed farm quadrangles first built in the 1720’s. It sleeps 5 people in 2 bedrooms and a sixth in an emergency is available. It features a stunning Inglenook fireplace, above which hangs the old poacher's gun we found hidden away in the barn.

The large room with its Inglenook fireplace has a spacious dining alcove that seats 7 and an attractive farmhouse kitchen area, hand-made from reclaimed oak and tile with original cupboards. Twin comfy sofas, a quirky reading chair and an antique Kelim provide perfect relaxation in front of the fire. The floor is original medieval brick. The walls are old soft red brick and exposed beams or limewashed with distressed blue / green pigments. Beautiful large antique pine dining table with handcrafted built-in oak benches. In the kitchen you’ll find a Belfast sink, refrigerator, microwave and oven. The cottage comes complete with TV, as well as books and games.

Upstairs, there are highly polished old wooden floors with Kelim rugs. The two comfortable bedrooms feature high vaulted wooden ceilings with original beams. The roomy bedrooms, each have a lovely double brass bed and in the second bedroom there is an additional single brass bed. One absolutely charming unusual feature in the bedrooms are the tiny windows with coloured glass which were originally old pigeon loft entrances. On the spacious, bright landing there is also a divan, which can be made up into an extra bed in emergencies. In the bathroom there is a big spacious shower and a lovely old sink. Outside you’ll find the sunny Orchard which is ideal for relaxing or having breakfast in. From the orchard you can walk straight out into open countryside.
