If you love romance and something a little out of the ordinary, then this is one of the holiday cottages in Suffolk that you should consider for your holidays.
Field Mouse Cottage is a little granary conversion set beside the owner’s pink washed 14th century Suffolk long house and encircled by 60 acres of Suffolk countryside.
It's definitely not just field mice who will appreciate the tranquillity and peace in this part of Suffolk with walking and cycling straight from the doorstep, with fishing and boating close by and even the seaside not more than a very short drive away.
Holiday cottages in Suffolk come very well equipped. At Field Mouse Cottage linen, towels and electricity are included in the rental. The cottage also has parking and provides garden furniture and a gas barbecue for lazy summer dinners outside.
Inside, there's a TV/DVD, microwave and the owner's washing machine and tumble dryer are available for use free of charge.
Field Mouse Cottage is a non-smoking property and - due to the steep stairs - unsuitable for the infirm.
Suffolk is a tranquil county and a treasure trove of history to boot. Many treasures have been lost to the sea - a whole Roman town amongst them - but equally much remains and is worth exploring. Here are a few attractions that should make it onto your must-see list when you're staying in one of the many wonderful holiday cottages in Suffolk.
Only one of England's kings has ever been martyred for his faith and that was Edmund, King of the Angles, who is entombed in Suffolk's only cathedral. Incidentally, St Edmund was once England's patron saint, until he was replaced by St. George in the 13th century.
One of England's greatest Anglo-Saxon treasures can be found on the edge of the busy little town of Woodbridge: a complete boat burial, believed to be that of the East Anglian King Raedwald. The boat, of course, did not survive, but the many everyday items and the famous golden helmet make this an Anglo-Saxon treasure you simply have to go and admire.
Following the Battle of Hastings and his coronation, William the Conqueror richly rewarded the men who had supported his bid for the English throne. Roger Bigod, 1st Earl of Norfolk, acquired most of East Anglia. Framlingham Castle, still dominating the skyline of this friendly little market town, was one of the strongholds he built to secure the lands he was given.
Visiting Lavenham is like taking a trip into the past. Back to a time when Lavenham cloth was sought after in England and Europe alike, back to a time when wool merchants, fullers, dyers, spinners, weavers and cloth merchants vied for space in this town, when streets and streets of timber-framed houses were built to show off the citizens' wealth.
Holiday cottages in Suffolk make a great base for exploring and Field Mouse Cottage is in a great position to do just that. The attractive market town of Halesworth is just 4 miles, whilst RSPB Minsmere, Dunwich and many other delights of the Suffolk heritage coastline are about 12 miles.
A trout lake is 1 mile away and cycle hire, fishing, riding and golf are all available nearby. Or make for Southwold, a quintessentially English seaside town complete with colourful beach huts, a lovely restored pier and some of the best fish and seafood you'll find anywhere.
