Nearly five centuries have passed since this sweet Suffolk village cottage was built. Now, behind its pretty limewash walls, are a pair of special places to stay, as low-ceilinged and wonky as ever but beautifully revived in a simple uncluttered style. ‘White Sheep’ is larger than ‘Black Sheep’, both are whiter-than-white and simply adorned. Bedrooms are charming (an old Suffolk chair, pine chest, vase of flowers) and comfortable; good mattresses come topped with honeycomb cotton covers. Slip into a thick robe in a light, white, beautifully beamed bathroom, rustle up something delicious in a well-organised kitchen just big enough for supper (there’s even a dining room in ‘White Sheep’). Each cottage has a private entrance and a south-facing garden; shared are a wildflower meadow, a bike store and a pond. You’re just off the road on the edge of Peasenhall village: small and delightful, with an art gallery, a good butcher and a deli that supplies the Royal Family. There are super pubs nearby, and walks and bike rides galore. Rent ‘White Sheep’, ‘Black Sheep’, or both. Lovely.
