Below is a rundown of each of our pet-friendly, family-friendly, self-catering cottages with key highlights to help you distinguish. Enjoy!

Sleeps two

Kersey and Melford

Kersey and Melford cottages both sleep two and are perfect for a romantic getaway. With a generous open plan kitchen/living area, Melford is a little larger than Kersey with plenty of space for you to sit back and relax. Both cottages have room for a cot, meaning the little’ uns can enjoy a relaxing stay at Gladwins Farm too.

Sleeps four

Gainsborough, Hadleigh, Dedham and Lavenham

With its own garden, Gainsborough cottage has access to a private hot tub, patio furniture and a barbecue. Heated using wood chip fired central heating and a log burning stove, Gainsborough is cosy all year round and provides a super relaxing feel. The open kitchen/dining/living area adds to this cosiness and is well designed to include a range of necessities.

Hadleigh is a larger apartment-style cottage with a significant master bedroom housing a Queen sized bed that can be split into twin beds. The second bedroom can act as either a single, twin or small double room. Hadleigh is suitable for less able guests as the bath is lower, but they are a few steps from the yard.

Looking for something more compact? Dedham is for you. The open galleried double bedroom allows for open plan living, while the open plan kitchen, dining and living room opens out onto a shared patio with access to a barbecue and outdoor furniture.

Lavenham has several traditional Tudor features, including exposed beams and medieval architecture. The upstairs king sized open-galleried bedroom has a roof-light meaning the beautiful countryside can be seen at all times.
