This pretty single storey thatched cottage enjoys a peaceful setting within a lovely large picturesque garden bordering open rolling countryside. The property dates from the 16th century and has many original features such as a beamed interior and low doorways. The summerhouse provides a peaceful retreat in which to unwind and relax. It also boasts a garage perfect for storing bikes. It is conveniently located for Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Cambridge. The unspoilt village of Denston is a true Suffolk secret and lies within easy reach of the historic medieval wool towns of Lavenham, Clare and Long Melford. Ideal for exploring on foot or by bicycle. This is a particularly wonderful location for cyclists with a very popular cycle shop and cafe under 10 miles away. Maglia Rosso is the perfect stop off after a ride. Shop: 2 miles. Pub: 2 miles.

Denston is a peaceful village in rural West Suffolk, lying in the upper reaches of the Glem Valley. The 15th century parish church of St Nicholas is one of the most beautiful in the county. Bury St Edmunds with its cathedral and Abbey Gardens is a short drive away. Lavenham and the historic wool towns are within easy reach, as are the antiques shops at Clare, Cavendish and Long Melford. It is an ideal location for a day out at Newmarket races, or trying your hand at punting in Cambridge. The National Trust properties at Ickworth and Melford Hall are well worth a visit and nearby Kentwell Hall holds many interesting events year round. It's a good base for walking through the countryside and cycling along the quiet lanes.
