About Cocketts

Cocketts is an exceptionally attractive 16th century listed Suffolk farmhouse, sitting in a peaceful position at the end of a mile long no-through country lane. Nestling amongst extensive grounds (approximately an acre), Cocketts sleeps six guests in three bedrooms (or nine with the use of the futon beds in the attic playroom), and offers those who stay the opportunity to experience a taste of country life in an enchanting retreat packed full of original character with beams, inglenook fireplace housing a wood burner and wonkey floors - all adding to the charm.

Perfectly mixing traditional features with modern day living, a high standard of comfort is assured with plenty of conveniences including internet access, a playden in the attic with games and a PS3 to entertain the little ones and crisp linens on comfy beds to ensure a good night's sleep. There is also a games room with a pool table, darts and dartboard and a TV with a sound system.

Enjoy chatting about the day's adventures over supper in the farmhouse kitchen with table large enough to seat eight, then retire to the sitting room and relax in front of the roaring log fire. When the weather is warm, find a quiet spot in the garden or orchard to relax with a good book and enjoy alfresco dining on the patio with a glass of wine whilst soaking up the lovely views. The little ones will love petting the owner's three pygmy goats, Nancy, Hercules and Nelson, who live next door and collecting eggs from the hens. There is a little wooden playhouse with outside toys in the enclosed area which is safe for smaller children and a swing and picnic bench in the orchard.

A haven for wildlife, there are plenty of birds to spot in the garden and fruit that guests are welcome to help themselves to when in season including sloes, walnuts from the magnificent tree, apples and quince. Countryside walks can be enjoyed straight from the front door and the quiet leafy lanes are a pleasure to explore by bike.

Whilst feeling that you are in the heart of Suffolk countryside, Cocketts affords easy access to the areas many attractions including the charming medieval market town of Bury St Edmunds and Framlingham where you can visit Ed Sheeran’s ‘Castle on the hill’.  Enjoy your days discovering the quintessentially English local villages, or the popular seaside towns dotted along the heritage coastline. Constable Country is within easy reach by car, as are the cities of Norwich and Cambridge and there are a host of traditional pubs, excellent restaurants and farmers markets for those who want to sample local produce.

Suffolk is a wonderful holiday destination at any time of the year. A place where you can indulge in clean air, wide open skies and a beautiful coastline surrounded by rolling countryside. From fish and chips on the beach at Aldeburgh, to the thunder of hooves at Newmarket, or a long leisurely pub lunch in a picture postcard village, the choices are endless and plentiful!
