This is one of our most romantic cottages and has a very special atmosphere.
Laid back, relaxed and full of quirky character and cosy period features.
The Honeymooners Favourite; The Bakery is an extremely cosy and romantic cottage.
It has a pretty fire built into the ancient Baking oven, which you can watch as you sink back into the comfy sofa and enjoy the sunset over the Orchard gardens. The cottage has very many characterful and original features like its ancient 'Suffolk White' brick floor, lots of old beams and massive built in 'Kettle' which was State of the Art in 1700 for laundry and beer making, the high vaulted wooden bedroom ceiling, old reclaimed wood floors, lime washed hand plaster, cosy antique furniture and relaxed 'lived in' cosy atmosphere. The Bakery is one of the six cottages which make up part of the double quadrangle of the Grove Farm.
It's tucked away at the corner of the Orchard garden, giving honeymoon guests an even more private nook to view the world from. And of course pets are welcome. You enter the main room with its lovely brick floor and large handmade french windows at the far end leading into the sunny Orchard. There is a hand built Ash wood kitchen with belfast sink and gas hob, grill and oven to your right. I have built a cosy bench seat for the dining table into the massive bread oven and put in a tv with built in dvd and ipod docking station.
Upstairs there is a large bedroom with a big brass bed and a wonderful new memory foam mattress, the floor is highly polish reclaimed wood and the ceiling has all the beams exposed with more wood placed behind the beams giving a very cosy but expansive feel to the room, the end of the room is partially divided off with a heavy brocade wall drape which accentuates the character of the room and provides a cosy armchair reading area beside the far window.
