About Cocketts

Cocketts is a delightful, listed, 16th century and now child-friendly cottage, tastefully updated for modern living - it is a perfect rural retreat.  Sleeping six to nine in 3 bedrooms and a playroom, the cottage is equipped with everything you and the children could want including a log burner, comfy leather sofas, lovely linens and towels as well as games, a playstation and a rocking horse. Should you wish to leave the comfort of the cottage and grounds then you’re not far from the Suffolk heritage coast, Constable Country and the East Anglian towns of Norwich, Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds.

Our review coming soon.

Cocketts is set in one acre of glorious gardens complete with an orchard, large tree swing, space to play ball games and a playhouse stashed full of garden toys. Beyond that there’s farmland with walks and cycling routes accessible from your doorstep. 

The Cottage

Sympathetically restored, this 16th century Quaker built cottage is as beautiful as it is relaxing. It has exposed beams throughout, solid oak flooring, leather sofas and a large kitchen diner that seats 8 comfortably.

The lounge is a comfortable relaxing space with a flatscreen TV (Freeview) and a beautiful log burning stove in the inglenook fireplace. The owners will provide you with a basket of logs when you arrive.

The farmhouse kitchen is equipped with a large fridge/freezer, microwave, double oven and dishwasher.

Downstairs there are also two porches where you can leave muddy boots or sandy sandals, a utility room complete with washing machine and tumble dryer and a shower room.

On the first floor are two large king size bedrooms and the family bathroom.Oh, and Brandy the rocking horse!

Upstairs again is the attic which has beautiful exposed beams in the vaulted ceilings. There is a twin room up here and a playroom which can sleep an additional 3 guests on futons (1 x single and 1 x double).

The Garden

Directly outside the cottage is the garden with a west facing patio where you can sit at the large garden table, sip your early evening G&T and watch the children play on the lawn with the garden toys or in the wooden playhouse. Beyond the garden is a larger grassed area, perfect for bigger ones and adults to play a game of football or badminton, or bring along a croquet set for some family fun. Leave the grassy area and you’ll enter the old orchard - a place where you can grab some peace on the large tree swing amongst apple, plum, walnut and quince trees. There’s also a picnic table here for fair weather dining.

Out and About

Bustling cities and market towns, beautiful countryside and stunning beaches are all accessible from Cocketts. The owners live next door and as well as giving you a warm welcome, will also be able to provide advice on days out for your family. Here are just a few suggestions.

Within 15 minutes drive: Stonham Barns  - Birds of prey centre, Crazy golf, Fishing, Baylham House - Rare breeds farm, kids play areas, Needham Market  - a small town full of antique shops, Alder Carr Farm - Pick your own with farm shop and ice-cream to die for, Museum of East Anglian life with working watermill, Victorian school and an old smithy and The Steam Museum with occasional visits from Thomas.

Further afield
