Boxford is listed by The Times Travel Magazine as one of the top ten villages in England and is surrounded by lovely Suffolk Countryside, with tight little valleys leading down to the River Stour.
The cottage, which dates back to the early 1500’s, was once used as a Merchants home and double fronted shop. The old spring doorbell above the front door still works if you pull the outside knob!

Had a wonderful stay - we really chilled out and relaxed. Angel Cottage feels so homely and welcoming - we loved it so much! The welcome hamper was very useful, thanks! Lavenham is a a lovely place to visit, but to be honest it was just nice to kick back and relax at the cottage. We will definitely be returning - it has been such a lovely weekend and we even did some sketching - perfect!
The perfect break. Thank you
We had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend here. Very comfortable cottage, even though it wasn't really cold enough, we had a log fire in the evening which was atmospheric. Boxford is a friendly village and everything is on the doorstep. Thank you Karen for the welcome pack with delicious home made biscuits!
My husband arranged this weekend as a surprise for my birthday and I couldn't be more delighted with what we arrived at. The cottage is beautiful and little touches such as the lights, welcome pack, bikes and fire make it even more lovely. We will definitely have to come back as we did not have time to make the most of everything. Loved exploring the area and can also recommend the day spa at Gainsborough Health Club. Thanks for a lovely stay Karen.
We had a fantastic time again at your wonderful cottage. It was like coming home, enjoyed exploring different locations, walking and the locals who are so friendly -:)
A cosy but luxurious stay in a lovely part of England. We have spent a fabulous 4 days in a beautiful part of England. Angel Cottage was everything we wanted and thanks to Karen for her welcome (and welcome pack).
Had a fabulous time. Beautiful cottage and great welcome pack.
We have had a wonderful few days here - lovely sunshine, beautiful cottage. Thank you very much for the substantial welcome pack. The local shops are very friendly and the surrounding area is gorgeous and great for bike rides. Thank you very much.
We had a lovely stay and will be back.
Quality bedding and towels, just the sort of luxury you want on a break away from home. Amazing welcome pack, local produce, homemade biscuits and sitting in front of the fire toasting marshmallows was the best treat ever. Boxford is enchanting with lovely friendly people. Thank you Karen!
We had a wonderful stay at Angel Cottage, it was an ideal spot to explore the region. We enjoyed every second of the 4 days and staying at your comfortable, cosy cottage was super! Thanks again, we will surely recommend this lovely place!
Fantastic cottage, very cosy and a great base for a lovely weekend away. Everything was great, thank you Karen.
Cannot fault cottage and welcome. Lovely stay everything catered for and more. Good location, beautiful cottage. Karen was very friendly and lovely, everything explained and covered.
It was all we wished for. Excellent break, would return.
Thanks to Karen for a great "handover" and such a generous welcome hamper. A fantastic cottage - so cosy and comfortable. Karen has thought of everything and more! Really enjoyed our short stay.
The open fire was just beautiful and the wonderful idea of supplying marshmallows in the welcome basket made it all the more perfect. Excellent kitchen facilities and the food at The Fleece pub was lovely. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Everything you want from a country village cottage. Absolutely 5 star! The "cookies" were excellent. Homemade so much better than the usual packet. Karen was very welcoming and everything exceeded our expectations. We will no doubt, return again.
A great place to de-stress
An amazing stay in a wonderful cottage. Everything has been perfect from the moment we arrived and met by Karen. Long country walks in this beautiful and surrounding villages. We have never been anywhere where the people are so friendly - lovely country pub with great food. Can't wait to come back again. Thank you Karen. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Lovely cottage with great fire. Very welcoming host. Loved the welcome basket, everything we needed was provided. Would definitely recommend.
What a fantastic way to start the New Year! Angel Cottage is beautiful and so cosy. From the moment we walked through the door we knew we would feel at home and the fireplace speaks for itself. Karen is so welcoming and very friendly. We would definitely come again. Love Mary
Very cold, but bright 5 days in the lovely Suffolk countryside. The cottage is warm and cosy and a lovely welcome from Karen! We enjoyed Gainsborough House and museum in Sudbury and great collection of paintings on display. Enjoyable prom walks in Aldeburgh and Southwold. All in all a very enjoyable 5 day break.
We received a very warm welcome from Karen. Not much later we were warming our toes in front of a roaring fire in the Inglenook fireplace and toasting the marshmallows provided in the welcome basket. Lovely walks and pretty villages to visit from the doorstep. Angel Cottage was the perfect refuge for our New Year break. Thank you.
A very warm welcome to a lovely cottage for our Christmas break. Lovely decorations and a delicious hamper and even a present under the tree. The cottage was an ideal retreat, with plenty of dog walks, lots of food and a real fire - perfect! The quality of furnishings, bedding, towels etc for excellent. Would love to return for a summer break.
Beautiful cottage - we had a fantastic time here. The fire is outstanding. Thank you. p.s. Karen's welcome meeting was first class.
Lovely cottage and village.
Angel Cottage is so cute and romantic. Cosying up by the fire and playing board games was a rare and wonderful thing. We will be returning to London in festive spirits and will really miss the gorgeous fire, red wine and Buble album! I would completely recommend to anyone looking for an idyllic escape. The welcome was wonderful and toasting marshmallows on the open fire was extra special -:)
We enjoyed another few nights with Grove Cottages here at Angel Cottage. A lovely cosy cottage and great base to explore from.
The owner is an artist and the cottage is a real work of are and crammed with fascinating things and homely comforts. Angel Cottage truly is a place that makes you ache when you leave. Perfection!
Another great cottage, up to your usual exacting standards!! A real home from home and as quaint and cosy as could be - love your spring and autumn breaks in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. We loved the artwork and the "quirky" colours and "trimmings" around this stunning cottage. Thank you Karen for the lovely welcome pack.
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful village, would definitely recommend to friends. Karen was extremely welcoming and helpful.Will definitely be returning.
We have fallen in love with this place and will most certainly be back. Thank you for everything!
Very comfortable and well stocked cottage in a lovely location. Great walks on the doorstep. All added up to a wonderful autumn break. Excellent cottage, Karen very welcoming. There was such a spirit of generosity from the excellent quality of welcome basket to toiletries and cleaning products. The bedroom with en suite shower was luxurious - bed marvellously comfortable.
Lovely cottage! 2 nights not enough!
Karen started our family holiday off stress free, making sure we had everything in place for our 8 month old baby girl. As a first time mum this was amazing and made our family time and memory making even more perfect. The cottage was totally fab, cosy with individual pieces of art work. The courtyard is an amazing place to sit in the morning drinking coffee and in the evening, as the church is a real centre piece. Truly amazing, thank you Karen.
There was always the possibility that we would be unable to make the proscribed arrival time, but this was no problem which took the pressure off having to arrive at a certain time. Thank you for that. We would definitely like to stay again when we can really enjoy and take in the local environment and all that Suffolk has to offer.
Fantastic little cottage, excellent local amenities and beautiful countryside. Excellent welcome hamper and a warm welcome from the owner. Would imagine in winter when you can light the fire it's amazing!
Had a very enjoyable stay. So many places nearby to visit. Beds very comfortable and very artistically furnished with many quirky features. A pretty courtyard patio, ideal for al fresco meals.
Brilliant little break, lovely cottage in very good location. Karen was very informative and friendly. All excellent.
Lovely stay at Boxford. Very relaxing and friendly.

All cottages of a very high standard and near local pubs and walks. Lovely architecture in this area as well. Angel Cottage is a very high quality cottage. Handy having the courtyard, used day and night as beautiful weather - great BBQ!
The whole experience was fantastic. Impeccable attention to detail - cannot fault the entire experience. Will definitely come again. Many thanks.
