Crown Cottage

4 Bedroom Cottage in Suffolk

Crown Cottage is a classic 16th Century Suffolk cottage, in a commanding position in Stoke-by-Nayland, one of the county’s prettiest villages. Originally three cottages and a bakehouse, Crown Cottage has been lovingly converted into a well-proportioned and generously sized house with a private garden. With original period features and a recent redecoration, the cottage exudes the perfect balance between old world charm and modern comfort. Being just a stone’s throw away from two of the area’s best pubs, a bookshop and a charming village store, Crown Cottage offers a warm village experience surrounded by the stunning Suffolk countryside that families and gathering friends alike are sure to fall in love with.
