Grove Farm Cottage sleeps four guests in two bedrooms and nestles amongst beautiful Suffolk countryside in a peaceful position in the picturesque Waveney Valley. On the edge of the small hamlet of Ilketshall St. Margaret, Grove Farm Cottage assures you of warm welcome. It is one of a pair of Victorian cottages recently renovated and furnished to a high four star standard and provides an excellent base for touring both Norfolk and Suffolk, along with the Norfolk Broads and coastline which are both nearby.
A peaceful retreat to return home to, the cottage has a large garden with furniture and barbecue, ideal for relaxing after an exciting day exploring the area. Many interesting walks start from the front door and there are far reaching views from the windows.
Known as ‘The Saints’, the local area is possibly one of Suffolk's best kept secrets. The surrounding countryside is full of wildlife and history and is ideal for exploring by bike with cycle routes throughout the ‘Saints’ villages. Ilketshall St Margaret is a small village with only a scattering of cottages and a Saxon round towered Church. Nearby there are several market towns worth visiting for antique browsing, shopping or just enjoying a bite to eat including Halesworth (seven miles), Bungay (three miles) with an indoor heated swimming pool (with water slide) on the outskirts of the town, St Peter’s Hall with bar, restaurant, brewery and shop and the nearby Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum at Flixton.
Other attractions include National Trust houses and gardens in both Suffolk and Norfolk; RSPB Reserve at Minsmere located on the coast near Southwold and the unspoilt seaside towns and coastal villages of Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Southwold, Dunwich and Orford to name just a few!
For the children, bustling Great Yarmouth and Pleasurewood Hills near Lowestoft provide great fun days out or hire a day boat on the Norfolk Broads to explore the waterways.
