Very cosy and quirky cottage, very clean and warm. Nice quiet spot to stay with plenty of outside space to wander. Helpful hosts and we appreciated the welcome basket. Enjoyed our stay very much in this part of Suffolk. Thank you.
After searching through quite frankly, a lot of 'dross' cottages in Suffolk, Grove Cottages seemed to set itself apart from everything else on offer. We booked at short notice for a weekend and managed to book delightful Snow Cottage. Coupled with great weather this place allowed us to relax, unwind and be amazed at the stunning Suffolk countryside. The cottage is well thought out and has everything you need. You will not be disappointed with Snow Cottage - really can't find any negatives, such a shame we only booked for the weekend!
Really wonderful! Very cosy and comfortable, we loved that we could bring our dog too. We did one of the local walks and it was amazing. Went to 2 of the recommended pubs and enjoyed food and drink!
Lovely relaxing place with rustic charm, natural materials, peace and a tranquil location away from it all, but not too far from beautiful villages, countryside, the sea... The hosts are kind and helpful people. Thanks for having us to stay!
We had a lovely time, very peaceful 10/10. We will definitely come again.
Very comfortable and cosy cottage. Thank you for the lovely basket of goodies. It was a thoughtful surprise. Could not fault the cottage , most enjoyable, cosy and warm and a great location.
An excellent location for exploring Suffolk with our dog. We had booked Snow Cottage but when the opportunity arose Mark upgraded us to The Bakery. Both cottages are lovely and we felt at home immediately. The welcome basket is the best we have ever encountered. Thank you.
Fabulous place to stay - we will be back. Perfect cottage, amazing location, friendly host. Loved all the extra touches - welcome basket, free bike use etc.
We had a lovely time as always!
Lovely fresh breakfast, nice to know that it is all local. Special thanks to Mark for showing us the local area, the best pubs and walks. The map was very handy - we also loved playing the games in Snow Cottage. Couldn't fault it, everything we need and wanted.
The welcome basket was a lovely touch and a very helpful surprise! Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.
Delightful cottage, enjoyable, relaxing, peace and quiet, lovely setting. Welcome basket - excellent! Even after 13 years since our first visit, it is still very relaxing, and so 'away from it all' - a great experience.
Return Visit – Such a great place to get away from it all, lovely setting..
More than reached our expectations, absolutely stunning place and area. Welcome basket was fantastic. We wished we could have stayed longer (forever). Will be back again and again and again. Thank you so much.
Everything was perfect. I wound't change a thing. Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings.
Snow Cottage is an enjoyable mix of past and present. It has all you could need for a relaxing stay.
Cosy, yet spacious cottage in a lovely rural setting. Well placed to explore Suffolk. A real "get away from it all"
All very good stayed previously and would stay again. Cottage and outside areas excellent and great to relax in day and night.
Our first visit to Suffolk has been brilliant. Your 'What To Do' guide has been very helpful when planning what to do each day and your extensive dog friendly pubs suggestions has been useful when planning meals out. Snow Cottage is a lovely, it's cosy and characterful and perfect for us and our dog Desmond. The welcome basket was a lovely treat which we all enjoyed - thank you very much.
Lovely cottage, lovely setting. The owners have thought of everything you might need. Would like to try other cottages in the future.
Snow Cottage has a wonderful feel that makes your feel at home straightaway.
We had a fabulous stay, loved the cottage, loved the peace and quiet and loved the surrounding villages. The welcome basket is a huge plus, full of local fresh ingredients. Thank you x
An exclusive cluster of interesting recycled buildings in a very quiet country setting, with lots of bird song to lift ones spirits.
Snow Cottage - quaint, rustic and utterly charming. Loved the cottage - loved our stay and the welcome pack was great. I will certainly recommend to all my friends.
Wonderful weekend stay. Cosy cottage - absolutely perfect for a getaway. All really lovely thank you so much. We stayed for a wedding and would definitely come back for a holiday!
The cottage is beautiful and a cosy home from home. We very much appreciated the breakfast basket, tea, coffee and essentials provided. We will definitely consider another stay.
We have had a lovely stay at Snow Cottage. Grove Farm as a whole is beautiful and very dog friendly. The extra touches (breakfast basket) are great and all staff are warm and friendly. High recommend staying to everyone!
This is our third stay in Grove Cottages (twice in Snow, once in Orchard) and we love it here. Thank you.
You know you've picked the right holiday cottage when you're greeted with Miles Davis as the "ambience" music...utterly stunning surroundings, beautiful getaway cottage. Great cycle routes and lovely hosts, couldn't have been much better. The basket of goodies was amazing. This is by far the best stocked cottage we have every rented, it made us feel so at home during our stay. Thanks for making it so wonderful
Had a lovely time at Snow Cottage. Very cosy and comfortable with lovely walks for the dog and friendly pubs, where we had some great meals, would definitely come back.
A relaxing base to return to each evening after some fairly stressful days spent house hunting. Really cosy, well equipped and set in beautiful countryside. Our third break in a Grove Cottage property; what you see on the website is what you get and they never disappoint. Walking to the White Horse is a great way to unwind. The breakfast basket was once again delicious. Thank you.
Nice, well equipped snug cottage.
Corinne and I have had the most wonderful weekend.We had a great welcome on Friday night and then were left to relax with our delicious welcome basket of fresh and local produce. Had lots of fun exploring the local area too - would highly recommend. It was all brilliant - really liked walking to The White Horse pub!
Really impressed with Mark, who was very warm and welcoming. The cottage was perfect and full of character. It's just a shame we were not staying longer. Perhaps a revisit is on the cards, to enjoy more of it's surroundings?
Cottage was warm and cosy on arrival. High ceilings all to spacious feel. Had everything we needed, welcome basket appreciated. Thank you very much.
We have had such a lovely time staying in Snow Cottage. It has been our first stay here but definitely won't be our last. Snow Cottage has been a delight and has been a snug and cosy home from home. It is very clean and welcoming and stocked to a very high level - we didn't really need to bring anything with us.We had a lovely welcome and the welcome basket provided in the cottage was much appreciated and full of tasty local produce. We found the location ideal and it gave us a good base to explore the surrounding villages and countryside.
We had a very relaxing and quiet break. Very much needed! Beautiful cottage with everything we could possibly need. Great welcome. Sad to leave. Will be back!
A lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful place. Everything was just right - from the flowers to the welcome basket. The extra finishing touches that make an extra special holiday. I don't think I will bother using any other companies now I've found Grove Cottages!! I know it will be guaranteed bliss!
Lovely cottage, dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves, weather couldn't have been better. Well done!
We have had a lovely two night stay in Snow Cottage. We came for a local wedding and have managed to fit in lots of dog walks in the beautiful surroundings. The set up is brilliant (bikes, BBQ area, welcome basket, local info, marked-up map). You really have thought of everything. Thank you!
Charming cottage, lovely stay. Love the orchard, great location. Quiet and peaceful stay. The welcome pack was much appreciated and delicious.
We have had a lovely weekend break. Snow Cottage was very cute and had everything we needed to relax. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast using the welcome basket treats. The grounds are lovely and lots of effort has been put into making sure we find our way around the local area, with great information on what to see and do. Would really recommend taking some of the walks highlighted and sampling the pubs along the way.
Our first visit to Suffolk - Grove Cottages are an excellent central base to explore it, visit friends and just relax.
Had a wonderful stay and very much enjoyed the cottage - the welcome pack was much appreciated.
Always a pleasure to return when we need to get away from it all, and just 'stop' for a while. Always feel we would like to stay longer!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grove Cottages - a perfect getaway in beautiful surroundings!
We had a lovely time staying in Snow Cottage. It is a very cosy cottage and we loved the high ceilings. We did a lot of baking and the oven was great! It was brilliant having the bikes, deck chairs and BBQ available - all things we don't have at home. We would highly recommend staying at Snow Cottage.
Here for my brothers wedding, which was amazing. The locale is very beautiful and the cottages fit this rustic splendour. There were a few of us in various cottages and we all had a great time. Wish we had longer here! Until we meet again......
Snow Cottage is a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a lovely break. With the other Grove Cottages in this setting it is a wonderful place for a family get together.
We knew right away that we had picked the 'right' place to stay. I can recommend it highly, it was exactly what we were looking for.
We loved our stay. So nice to have our dog with us. Really comfortable feeling to the cottage and the hamper of breakfast goodies, set us up perfectly for our day.
Wonderful countryside, fabulous accommodation, super hospitality, what more could you ask for? Plenty to see and do either by car, bike or walking - definitely exceeded our expectations, you will not be disappointed.
Beautiful cottage in a stunning part of the world - thank you for sharing it with us. We've enjoyed great walks, fantastic local produce and ale and all underneath sunny Suffolk skies. So much to do here - we'll be back.
We enjoyed our stay! We loved the cottage! The fresh eggs, tomatoes and fruit were lovely. Thanks to all!!

Excellent facilities, clean and cosy. Perfect short break.
A little oasis of calm, with good local walks and easy access to tourist attractions. Plenty of good places to eat and dog friendly! Thanks for a very pleasant Bank Holiday break.
A lovely week for relaxing and enjoying the Suffolk countryside. Hopefully we will be able to return as there is so much to see and do. Loved The White Horse (they even use 'Kent Hops' in one of their brews - very unusual these days). We leave with two happy and tired dogs.
We had a fantastic stay! Beautiful attention to detail in the cottage, making it a relaxing and romantic holiday. Thank you.
We booked with the intention of a peaceful, romantic weekend away and that's exactly what we found in Rose Cottage. The facilities were excellent and all the information provided about the area meant we were never bored. We loved the personal touches that Mark provides, including the breakfast basket and annotated map. It really felt like a home away from home, will definitely be coming back!
Cannot fault it at all. Lovely cottage, clean and cosy. Very comfortable and a great welcome pack.
Felt very welcomed as we arrived. Surpirsed by the lovely complimentary breakfast basket, which definitely came in handy! Perfect romantic getaway, if you want peace and quiet away from everyday busy lives.
A beautiful cottage, a great option for new parents looking for a little luxury, whilst being kind on the wallet!
The best farewell gift anyone could wish for! Absolute tranquility and comfort in such beautiful surrouindings, were a great start to my retirement. We love the quirky style and character of Snow Cottage and plan to come back. We have appreciated being made to feel welcome.
Returned to Snow Cottage after 3 and a half years. As comfortable and beautifully appointed as ever. Fabulous cycling countryside and too many great pubs!
Our second stay at Grove Cottages, as great as our first. We stayed in Snow Cottage for a romantic Valentine's treat. It's a cute little cottage, with lots of quirky nik naks, and nice touches. We stayed in The Bakery last time and thought we'd miss the open fire, but it didn't make any difference. The welcome basket is a lovely touch, and we'll definitely be back.
Had a wonderful weekend at Snow Cottage, which is cosy and very comfortable. The welcome basket was lovely and the fresh eggs very tasty.The cottage is in a great location for visiting the surrounding villages and places of interest. Next time we will have to stay for longer.
Lovely weekend! Perfect for walking the dogs and relaxing. Welcome basekt was wonderful and tasted amazing - thank you!
Another enjoyable stay at Grove Cottages. Everything you need is here, delightful cottages, cosy, warm and clean. Always a great welcome and a basket full of goodies.

A wonderfully cosy cottage with a wonderful welcome, and a tremendous welcome basket. A peaceful haven, perfect to explore hidden treasure of villages and countryside from.
It was the perfect end to our wedding weekend. A warm, cosy cottage to relax and reflect in and enjoy our first weekend as a married couple. Thank you for your hospitality.
We've had an amazing, relaxing, recharging couple of days here. Snow Cottage really felt like home when returning from our days out. The welcome basket lasted for the duration of our stay, energising us in the mornings in preparation for our outings - a beautiful touch.It was always good to get back to Snow Cottage - warm, cosy, homely. A big thank you to our hosts, who really seem to have thought of everything. We look forward to our return to this lovely part of England. Who needs to go abroad???!!!
We both had a great stay at Snow Cottage. Relaxing, fun and friendly. Mark make us both very welcome, great place will certainly be coming back. Well recommended - thanks.
Quite amazing really. Quiet, practical location and amazing scenery. The facilities are really decent and having brought our 1 year old child, we found we were lacking nothing! I'll definitely be coming back here....with friends :-)
The ideal place for a relaxing break. So peaceful, plenty to do in the local area. Loved the bike ride to the White Horse pub.
Very nice compact cottage. Perfect for my short break - Hamish and Hector enjoyed the lovely quiet lanes to walk down. Worth walking to the White Horse!
This is our second Grove Cottage holiday (first was Cat;s Cradle). The cottages are warm, cosy, quirky and, as every guest says, the welcome baskets mean your breakfasts are sorted for the whole weekend. We are still enjoying the jam from Cat's Cradle!
Beautiful cottage - welcome basket was just great - we plan to come back. Hall Farm Shop was excellent.
We needed a quick tranquil type of holiday and Grove Cottages fitted the criteria exactly. Beautifully appointed in lovely grounds, there was something on site for everyone to enjoy. Peaceful with wild life in abundance, nice outdoor spaces to sit and read to take a cup of tea! Good parking off road and safe. The cottages whilst having luxury you would not expect to find in a holiday cottage, felt like home. Loved the eclectic mix of furniture, good shower and comfy bed. Although we don't have a dog, it was certainly dog friendly. Hope we can return again soon!
A lovely cottage for an anniversary weekend. Loved the eclectic mix of styling and comfy bed! Very good value but still feeling 'special' and cosy, but definitely not cramped. Breakfast hamper lasted all weekend and delicious too! Thank you x
Snow Cottage is delightful - quirky but very homely and comfortable. Welcome basket and fresh flowers very welcoming.
We have had a wonderfully restful week in this beautiful, unspoilt part of Suffolk. Coming from London, the peace and quiet has been very restorative. The cottage is excellently equipped, warm, cosy and comfortable, with every attention to detail, and the welcoming breakfast basket a real joy!
This is our second visit to Snow Cottage. Lovely location to unwind and relax.
A lovely place to come for a special occasion and to get away from everything. An unforgettable holiday - thank you!
Every need met. Warm welcome and all recommendations for visit, pubs, restaurants - first class.
Superb accommodation, welcome pack was brilliant and the bacon to die for. The cottage was really comfortable and with an eclectic mix of furnishings. We even spent time sitting in the orchard on the deck chairs, a first for us... Really lovely.
We arrived jet lagged and tired, and left rested, refreshed and totally relaxed – what a great place to start our English vacation.
A most enjoyable stay in Rose cottage. The welcome basket was a very nice touch and we enjoyed our cooked breakfast and freshly baked bread!!
Lovely peaceful break. Quiet surroundings would recommend for a tranquil break away.

A great place to unwind and soak the tranquil atmosphere of the area.
A very enjoyable stay. Thank you for the welcome basket, it was greatly appreciated! A lovely part of the world to take a break in. Would recommend Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds and the Burger night at the White Horse. Thanks again.
Fantastic Cottage, very warm and friendly. Great base for visiting and relaxing. Will definitely be back, especially when the little one is a bit older so we can enjoy some of the great walks that are around.
Truly wonderful weekend escape. The cottage was gorgeous and a real home from home. Using the bikes to explore the beautiful countryside was great. Being Shown around on arrival was lovely and very welcoming. All of the local information was extremely useful and really helped us get the most out of our short time here Thank you So Much
The Snow Cottage was great! A very relaxing and very beautiful area! Can’t wait to return.
The cottage is ideally situated for the places we wanted to visit, with the added bonus of being close to Lavenham (such a pretty place). The cottage layout suits a couple looking for relaxing hideaway.
This was our first visit to Grove and we certainly feel that we would like to come back and stay in every cottage. It has been the perfect most relaxing weekend. Our stay was full of rustic charm and far exceeded our expectations. Extremely informative Welcome The arrival to the cottage was like stepping into a different World. The Welcome Basket was so lovely and generous and really added to the feel of the cottage. Thank you so much.
This weekend stay was a surprise birthday present from our children. And what a surprise! The welcome we had from Millie, the basket of goodies and the flowers were lovely. Nice warm and cosy cottage. Very relaxing. Would love to go back.
Beautiful and cosy cottage, lovely welcome basket and will definitely be coming again! Thanks for a great weekend.
Perfect balance of privacy without feeling totally isolated. Lovely cottage, warm welcome, great value.
Fab, fab, fab, cosy, comfy cottage. Have had a lovely break. Coming back in the summer.
Excellent place/cottage to get away, rest and re-charge. Very cosy and peaceful. Just wish we booked longer than we did. Loved the Christmas feel with a real christmas tree and music on arrival.

Lovely cottage. We have had a much needed relaxing break.
Like so many before us, we have had a wonderful stay at Snow Cottage. Part of the secret is that you are made to feel as if you have been invited to stay for a few days at the house of a friend who has just popped out for a while. If you think this might before you, don’t hesitate. Many thanks.
Had a lovely and relaxing time. Came to celebrate my wife’s birthday and retirement and couldn’t have chosen a better location
All really excellent! Welcome basket was very generous and tasty. Bed was comfy and the shower was spacious. Would love to return.
Perfect cottage, perfect location, very warm welcome & just the perfect country break in every way.
Beautiful cottage and grounds. Very relaxing. Welcome basket fabulous. Had a wonderful time.
It's mine & Justins first wedding anniversary & we wanted peace in a romantic idyllic setting - which is what we got at Grove Cottages. Beautiful surroundings in a warm, comfortable and well presented cottage.
I think that it would be genuinely hard to improve on this cottage. It has all things that you might possibly want with the added bonus of being warm (how many country cottages I've been to & they've been cold....)
Gorgeous cottage and grounds, set amidst lovely countryside. Terrific welcome basket on arrival. Will most certainly return.
Snow cottage really relaxing, had a nice time, luv the bedspread !
The sun shone, a good shower, what more could you want? PS: We really like it here. The local information was very good, much better than usual. Suffolk is lovely, so pretty, I'm not surprised that so many artists come from here.
Snow cottage was faultless. Perfect reception on arrival, perfect cottage, perfect location – thank you!! For all my fellow veggies, you must go to the Veggie Red Lion at Great Bricett Fab food, doggie friendly and animal lovers.
Lovely cottage and fantastic welcome basket! The information provided for things to do locally was much appreciated but a weekend certainly wasn’t long enough to do it all – we will be back!
We have had a truly lovely holiday in Snow Cottage. From the wonderful welcome and beautiful facilities, everything has contributed to a peaceful romantic and lovely break.
Our’s was a group booking of wedding guests. The cottages are ideal for a family group.
A wonderful find in a beautiful setting. The Suffolk countryside is an absolute delight and the peace and tranquillity was exactly what we needed
Super, quiet little cottage with all you need for your holiday.
We were looking for somewhere ‘out of the way’ at short notice. We found Grove Cottages by chance. We think we have found something quite extra – special... Now, do we tell everyone we know ? ... or do we keep it as our secret hideaway?
Really lovely stay. Our dog’s first holiday and he loved all of the walking and open areas. Perfectly quaint cottage. Nice extra touch with a welcome basket of goodies. Will definitely come again.
Was a lovely short break and the heating was lovely for us old folks.
A very pleasing mix of old world charm, quirky character and modern creative comforts. Fantastic place to stay

All very enjoyable - just to short!

Fantastic location, many beautiful villages within a close area of the cottage. Some - Long Melford - Lavenham - Boxford - Hadleigh all are charming.

The cottage is lovely as are the walks and surroundings. A lovely peaceful get away from the rat race. The herb garden outside the cottage was particularly good with our Sunday roast!
We've had a lovely weekend at Snow Cottage - feels like we've been here a week!
A really lovely break in a cosy, characterful cottage. We really appreciated the breakfast basket and all the information about local walks, pubs and events. All in all the perfect place for our first holiday with our 3 month old! Andrew, Janey and Oscar.
We wish we had discovered Grove Cottage years ago, and really appreciated the thought and time that has gone into their local guide to the area - a wonderful weekend break - we will be back.
A perfect weekend getaway from London! Wonderful cottage with so many added touches such as the fantastic breakfast basket. The attention to detail really sets it apart!

Very comfortable and peaceful.
A most relaxing few days.
We had a lovely relaxing break - especially enjoyed the bacon in the breakfast basket. Thank you.
The whole stay here was charcterised by generosity and comfort. The thoughtfulness that has gone into everything is evident. We didn't even have to bring our own cat! Max adopted us !

Have had a lovely relaxing stay. Mark provides EVERYTHING for you to have a home away from home - including stuff I would never have thought of! Very kind, considerate and completely appropriate in every way. THANK YOU!
Excellent, lovely cottage, facilities and location!
Lovely cottage and lovely setting, very peaceful.
Really excellent once again.
This is the 2nd year staying at one of The Grove Cottages and already I'm looking forward to where to choose next year. Perfect for a romantic getaway from the outside world.
We have really, really enjoyed our stay- had a very nice welcome and the cottages was very cosy.
A perfect stay. A professional service with the personal touch!
Perfect. Cosy and comfortable. Everything you need for private romantic weekend. The bikes were a nice surprise! Beautiful cottages in a beautiful area. Thank you!

An enchanting escape to a cosy spot in Suffolk, wonderful hospitality and location to explore the surrounding area.

Beautiful cottage, lovely relaxing weekend. Will be back.
We could not have asked for a more romantic break. The cottage is perfectly sized and cosy with just the right amount of modern feel. Great place to explore Suffolk.
A cosy, peaceful, comfortable and original stay. Just what we needed!
A lovely cottage. Ideally situated to 'get away from it all'. Very peaceful.

A delightful cosy cottage, perfect for a romantic getaway. It's been perfect.
A really enjoyable stay. Loads to see and do. Beautiful cottage, countryside and village.
This was our third stay in one of the Grove Cottages and we loved it! Each time a different cottage, but all equally beautiful.
A real home of a country cottage, welcoming, informal and friendly. Attention to the small details to make your stay so happy and relaxing as possible, loosing yourself in the sweeping beauty of the Suffolk countryside around Grove Cottages.
Repeat visits only make the experience even more enjoyable.
I loved the vintage reclaimed and imaginative interior in the cottage with the lovely herb garden to relax in - Glorious setting and lots of great extras e.g deck chairs to sit and chill in the orchard, even the artwork encouraged us to relax and let go of our daily worries! The cycle routes were fab - landscape and countryside was so much more enjoyable on 2 wheels.
Lovely cottage in a lovely setting!
Idyllic location, the land time forgot - yet only 60 miles from our home! My only worry is that I feel so relaxed here that I fall asleep without effort.
What a lovely relaxing break! The cottage was very cosy and just perfect for us to get away from it all, and the personal touch was carried through by staff from beginning to end. Thoroughly recommended as a country escape and we intend to return.
Smashing. We are connoisseurs of 'Long Weekends' and this was up there with the best we have experienced - home and abroad. Outstanding on all fronts - despite awful weather!!
So near to the M25...so far from the pressures of daily life. A great place to unwind.
Lovely peaceful setting. Great cottage.
We have had a fantastic honeymoon at Snow Cottage. The cottage is gorgeous, the weather perfect, Suffolk very relaxing. Our new friends Maxi the cat and the crowd of ducks have been a welcome addition.
A very enjoyable stay. A nice, friendly environment in a special "life style".
A beautiful cottage in a fabulous setting. Thank you.
Thankyou for a wonderful break - the cottage and location are beautiful !!
Great cottage, perfect location, so much to do, not enough time! We'll definately be back !!
Fantastic stay. Already planning on bringing friends later in the year.
The perfect getaway - relaxing and peaceful. We will definately be returning to Snow Cottage.
We had just two days to escape from the city for our 1st anniversary - and we chose the right place! Gorgeous romantic cottage, so relaxing. Lovely welcome pack with the most delicious bread and butter. Yum! Beautifully renovated building. When can we move in?
Great selection of pubs with great food within easy cycle distance. Grove cottages really know how to look after you.
Rustic yet chic, cosy yet perfectly spacious enough for two - Snow Cottage is an ideal hideaway for a couple. Absolutely perfect setting for our Valentines break.

Beautiful cottage with a generous welcome, lovely surroundings, all the mod cons and a very friendly cat...would definitely come again at any time of year, a lovely place to stay!
A wonderful retreat for a peaceful and relaxing christmas - perfect ! We will be back as soon as we can.
Like Suffolk beer Snow Cottage is full of character, well balanced and best enjoyed in a great swig of beauty, a sup of frothy joy, savour it slowly, to the great satisfaction it brings to all who intoxicate it !
Just what the doctor ordered, It's the perfect retreat ! Within a 2 hour drive of London, beautiful walks, and pub, food to die for. All within walking distance of the Snow Cottages front door. I'm so glad we found the Grove Cottages or we would be missing out on one of lifes pleasures. See you soon. Alex, Di, Roxy "The Bichon" and Archie "The Springer"
Fantastic, thanks ! Great walks, lovely cottage.
Who would have thought a holiday in England, in November could be so great. I really looked forward to returning, after a days expolring, to my cosy, warm and comfortable cottage for a glass of wine, local organic food and a good book. Absolute bliss!
We didn't think this attention to detail existed anymore. We will be returning.
Lovely cosy cottage, great dog walks in surrounding area and amazing farmshops!
Cosy and comfortable. Quiet and relaxing. Well equiped. A little gem ! Thank you so much.
Excellent interior design, the guidebook recommendation were extremely helpfull. In all we had a very relaxing time here.
Very comfortable and very peaceful - just what I wanted. The welcome basket was excellent and I enjoyed Maxi's visit
Great way to escape London for a weekend - makes me resent my life of the tube and office even more ! P.s. Max the cat is awesome.
Glorious autumn sunshine for a relaxing, cosy break. Welcome basket for humans and welcome bonio for canines - a very nice touch ! Thank you for sending us the link to the rowing boats, great fun !
Found this cottage just by chance, how lucky we were. Fab cottage and location, just a few miles from home but feels like a different country. Snow cottage is comfy, cosy and quirky and very dog friendly, but we are not sure the chickens enjoyed meeting him when he escaped!! We would like a return visit to Grove Cottages.
A delightful stay in a delightful cottage in delightful Suffolk - very many thanks.
We've had the most lovely time in south Suffolk, exploring all the nooks and crannies of medieval England at it's best. Grove Cottages is a fantastic haven in which to start and end your days.
I came here with my bridesmaids to get ready, then came back with my husband. What a beautiful place to put the perfect end to the perfect day.
Snow cottage is a great base from which to explore Suffolk and North Essex. It was always a comfortable sight to come home to after a busy day sight seeing. Top of the list if we ever venture to Suffolk in the future.
Beautiful cottage and location. Perfect for exploring Suffolk and having a relaxing holiday. Thank you.
Snow cottage was lovely and cosy. We found being here really peaceful and relaxing. There are loads of great places to visit and walk nearby. 'Tranquil' is the word that comes to mind.
Snow cottage has been an ideal country retreat, perfect for exploring the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Our stay has been everything we hoped for.
Had a fantastic time at Grove Cottages, will definately come back soon!
Excellent accommodation and lovely, peaceful, rural setting. We were really able to unwind and relax - local wildlife very entertaining - ducks, birds and cat! Thank you for a lovely holiday.
This is a lovely quiet place to spend time relaxing.
We stay in Snow cottage every time we come from the states. We love this little cottage, perfect for two, nicely decorated, bright and airy with high beamed ceilings throughout.
Beautiful place which exceeded our expectations, lovely atmosphere - quiet, peaceful but more than enough to do. We have loved our stay with Grove Cottages.
We wanted to explore a part of England we had not experienced before and enjoy it with our dog. Snow cottage was just the answer and we have really been suprised by Suffolk. You gave us a really good welcome and the country has so much to offer. Lovely countryside, lots of good country pubs and wonderful for dog walking. Open footpaths everywhere. We will be back again.
Yet again we have had a fantastic stay at the cottages, it's been truely lovely and we cannot wait to come again!
Everything we were looking for to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Good price, good local food, lovely walks, felt so relaxed after being here. Thank you.
We have had a great time at the Snow cottage, after one day there we were already talking about coming back. We've been looking for a place to get away from our hectic jobs and this is a perfect country retreat. See you soon x
We had a blissful time, staying in Snow Cottage. It was very cosy, even without an open fire. We're planning to come back for part of our honeymoon later this year!
A true home from home. Every little details attended to. Absolute rustic charm. Great guides to local area. Very friendly welcome.
3 wonderful weeks of peace and comfort in Snow Cottage. Location superb with everything you need in the cottage to make your stay enjoyable.
Fabulous accommodation in rural Suffolk. Everything you could possibly wish for. Excellent facilities and the warmest & friendliest welcome you could want. Many Many Thanks!
Grove Cottages is a fantastic place to come for a relaxing time. You are made very welcome on arrival. We cannot think of a better place to stay than Grove Cottages, to discover this beautiful part of Suffolk.
A very enjoyable 2 weeks. Very cosy cottage with everything you could want to make a pleasant stay. Maxi made our stay a joy - what a gorgeous cat!
A lovely cottage, reminded us of Wind In The Willows! Cosy, private - a great chilled out break. Our dog Roxy loved the walks and the pubs were dog-friendly! Each village was quaint and pretty. WE will definitely come back!
It was perfect...for a weary Londoner...a little slice of heaven indeed!
We have had a truly wonderful holiday. This was our first break away with our 11 month old baby. The cottage was really cosy and we
Snow Cottage is a very homely, cosy cottage situated within easy reach of many beautiful, historical villages. The ideal place for a very relaxing holiday.
A fantastic weekend break like home from home but better !
This area has it all
Excellent welcome best welcome basket delicious ! Well prepared local maps. Friendly area with lots of local produce. Comfortable and well maintained cottage with a continental feel Bikes are a great idea and central to plenty of great places to visit.
A beautiful cottage you relax the moment you step in! Great location for exploring the local area & lots of fantastic doggie walks! One of the few places we have visited that we would genuinely recommend to anyone!
Grove Cottages are quiet, comfortable and well-placed for exploring beautiful Suffolk
Grove Cottages offers the perfect escape only 2 hours from London and you feel like you are in another world! Marks passion for his special place and surroundings is truly contagious! But best of all Grove Cottages offer the best of both worlds the chance to do nothing or activities in the English countryside
A warm welcome and a beautiful cottage, sent us into relax mode within fifteen minutes of arriving. Come rain or shine this is the perfect antidote to real life. Well be back.
We arrived as two frazzled teachers from London and left as two relaxed and happy people. We cycled, walked, fed the ducks and stroked the cat, it was magic. We were made to feel very welcome upon our arrival. We fell in love with the cottage immediately.
Idyllic setting. Mark and staff are very welcoming. Wonderfully quiet with interesting and convivial resident fauna.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay
A perfect bolt hole in a beautiful cottage for us and our pets. Lovely surroundings and a very welcoming host. All put together with flair and imagination
Perfect weekend away from London! Everything we expected and more, totally recommend it!!!

The holiday can be complete simply enjoying the beautiful accommodation and surrounding countryside for walking and cycling. Throw away the car keys for the duration!!
Stylish rusticity in the heart of beautiful Suffolk, combined with a genuine welcome for dogs
We wish we could have stayed longer than a weekend ! The whole thing was pretty inspirational really. Mark has created an idyllic little getaway and the Welcome we got was ideal and actually pretty integral to the whole experience. Lovely furnishings, candles etc - very well tailored to what we were after.
Hi Mark, Thank you for continuing to send us your newsletters about the cottages - I forward them onto colleagues of mine looking for great short breaks! When I booked the last break we had, for Valentines week, my name was Heather Lay - you may remember me as the lady who burned the kettle! On Valentines day itself, Michael got down on one knee and proposed - so the picture of Snow Cottage brings back lovely memories. Since then, we have married & living in wedded bliss. So thank you for that - thanks to you we have some very special memories of those wonderful few days
It was awesome !
No other word but FABULOUS!
We have felt that The Grove team have made it a matter of personal pride to provide a beautiful, spotlessly clean cottage, and warm and informative welcome. They have gone on to respond to any concerns during the week speedily, but without any fuss. We could not have been more delighted.
I have never seen something more beautiful than this. All the cottages are decorated with love and care, for every single detail.
Believe the comments & pictures on the website - Its great here - very relaxing & cosy, plus it comes with a free cat!!
What a great surprise the Welcome Pack was, we have been self catering 30 years and this is the first Welcome Pack we
Idyllic cottage in a beautiful part of the world. Thanks for the warm welcome and directions to so many stunning villages
First Class Accommodation. Everything we needed was provided
What a marvellous area this is! It has to be one of the most beautiful areas in Great Britain and there is so much to do. The accommodation and the site are excellent. It is great to have such a good central location.
What a delightful place! The pillows and bed were so comfortable and snug, almost a shame to get up! A most beautiful piece of England and so peaceful. Thank you for the hamper!
Wonderfully relaxing environment. What every townie longs for (whether they know it or not) and what every local takes for granted. These three days of peace will see me through the next three months of London
Thank you for providing such a lovely accommodation in beautiful surroundings. It
Mark, you have found the famous formula of location, amenity and friendliness that everyone who wants to get away should be looking for! Three weeks of bliss, thank you.
In all our travels around the UK, we have never found a more beautiful spot. Little hamlets & thatched cottages throughout the area. And the ambience of The Grove Cottages! just what we like. Great local pubs with excellent food, favourite place Lavenham & further afield, Orford for the oysters. Wish we had another week!
