FAITH COTTAGE, character holiday cottage, with a garden in Felsham, Ref 1934
Able to sleep six people in two bedrooms, this property is best suited to a small family or two couples and is well situated for a variety of exciting activities. Situated in the rural hamlet of Bradfield St. George, one and a half miles from the village of Felsham, is this grade II listed property. This wonderful little cottage dates back to 1488 and has been sympathetically restored to blend character features with modern amenities. There is a charming thatched roof, exposed beams throughout and woodburning stoves in both the dining and sitting room. In addition to the amenities of Felsham, visitors to the cottage can enjoy those of Bury St. Edmunds, which include the Theatre Royal and stunning Cathedral.

Range cooker with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with FreeSat, DVD, CD/radio, selection of books, games and DVDs.

Large lawned garden with garden furniture. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop and pub 1.5 miles. Note: There is a fenced pond close to this property. Note: Due to the thatched roof this property does not allow BBQs.
Region: Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways â€“ East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.
Town: Home to a good local shop, a lovely village pub and a beautiful church dating back to the 15th Century, Felsham is a charming example of an East Anglian village. The surrounding settlements offer a further insight into the region's past and boast a wide selection of architectural styles. Properties of note include Ickworth House, built by the eccentric 4th Earl of Bristol, and Melford Hall, a turreted Tudor mansion once visited by Elizabeth I. Lavenham is also close by and is a pretty, medieval town which offers a number of stunning Tudor buildings and a local history museum. Bury St. Edmunds is also worth visiting and is host to a good range of pubs and restaurants as well as a choice of museums, parks and a stunning Cathedral.

This was everything we hoped for in a country cottage experience. We were made very welcome by the owners who had set out tea and scones for us. They lived near by and topped our wood up when needed. Watch your head on the staircase!

The hosts are very welcoming on arrival and so are the little touches that they provide, especially the cream tea. The cottage is beautifully restored and very comfortable. Home from home. The cottage has ecellent facilities with all the equipment you would find in your home. The gardens are delightful. The cottage is situated for days out and about not far from a variety of attractions. All in all a fabulous place to have a realaxing stay.

Not only did this look like the best cottage we had ever stayed in it was. The little touches added by the owners as well as their friendliness and kindness made it so. The cottage itself deserved the five stars it has got from us. It was beautiful, lacked nothing you could want and indeed immediately felt like a home not a holiday let. The location was good with access to Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex. The area was very quiet and peaceful and the gardens of the cottage were kept beautifully and we enjoyed watchng and feeding the birds and the squirrels. We missed the deer unfortunately who we understand visit too but we did have a visit from the local rabbit population. All in all this cottage is highly recommended, unless of course, you are looking for wild nights out but for a country location it is ideal.

It is a very nice cottage with very good quality furnishings.The owners live close by and are very nice people although they did not interfere.
Quiet secluded area but plenty of places to visit within easy driving distance.

Our second visit to Faith Cottage with its thatched roof, beautiful peaceful garden and modern kitchen and bathroom which are scrupiously clean. The owners go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful stay. You do have to take care going down the stairs as they are quite steep (a requirement of the building being listed).
Pubs two miles away, supermarkets six miles, loads of farm shops in the area. Easy access to main roads for fast access to the Suffolk/Norfolk coast.

The cottage is beautiful, both with old beams and with a modern, large kitchen. It is a listed cottage, so the staircase to the first floor apparently could not be made less steep. Another handrail would have been nice, though, as I tripped down the stairs and twisted my ankle quite badly. However, we have recommended the cottage to some friends of ours
