Picturesque Grade 2 listed thatched house in Suffolk
Weavers is truly a house for all seasons. The summer roses in the garden are breathtaking and in the winter, there is nowhere more cosy!
We advise booking early if you are coming in June, July and August as we get very heavily booked up over these months*
Weavers is a timber framed thatched cottage, full of character. It’s quirky, charming and idyllic! In the summer it’s stunning with its beautiful garden and pretty flowers. In the Winter, there is nowhere more cosy or more quintessentially ‘English’ with the fires lit and a glass of wine in hand. It’s a place of total relaxation where you can go to unwind and that you don’t need, or may not want, to leave. If you fancy heading out and about, there are many lovely walks, pubs, tea rooms, antique shops and places to discover. It’s a house for all seasons. If you feel inspired, there is a grand piano in the living room and a guitar that guests are welcome to use. Outside is a great BBQ perfect for al fresco dining under the grape vines. The house looks out onto fields and there are often a couple of friendly horses to be found. Whilst in a very rural setting, if you want to enjoy some shopping, you can get to a town centre within 15 mins by car. Central London is only 90 mins away by road. So near, yet so far. Weavers feels as though you’ve walked into a little touch of yesteryear. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Throughout the 1940s and 1950s the Museum was a working museum in which Suffolk Regiment recruits would go to learn the history of their Regiment.
