Thatcher’s Cottage

Stoke By Nayland, Suffolk
Holiday Home

This picture perfect thatched holiday cottage in the Dedham Vale village of Stoke-by Nayland dates back to the 1600s. Set in the heart of Constable Country, Thatcher’s Cottage is a beautiful, romantic retreat.

This beautiful ‘chocolate box’ timber framed property is surrounded by a third of an acre of pretty cottage gardens, with sloping lawns, flower beds and a south facing terrace overlooking farmland.

While the cottage has all the charm of its original features, the interior has been completely updated. The delightful country kitchen features an Aga, granite work tops and a stable door to the garden.

Brick and wooden floors lay throughout the ground floor, with luxurious carpets upstairs for your comfort. Thatcher’s is a beautiful, romantic retreat with the most calming and relaxing feel, an absolute must in these busy times.

The cottage is situated down a quiet country lane in the heart of Constable Country, just a five minute walk to the village and pubs. There are many lovely villages in the local area including Nayland, Dedham, Kersey and Lavenham to name a few

Please note that although the property is family friendly it is not suitable for children under 7 years of age.
