Queenie's Cottage is one of two traditional timber-framed Suffolk cottages that have been lovingly restored by the owner.The cottage has been renovated to retain and enhance the  rustic charm of the building and furnished with both antique and modern pieces to give the cottage a charming yet utterly comfortable feel.


Queenie's Cottage is one of the oldest dwellings in Metfield, dating back to the 15th century with 16th-century additions. It has a plethora of beams and original floors and a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burner.

The location offers a wonderful setting in the Suffolk Coutryside, yet is only a 30 minute drive to Southwold and the Suffolk Coast via the market town of Halesworth, whilst the castle towns of Bungay, Eye and Framlingham are all within easy reach.

The charm of the cottage is reflected in the great care and attention given to the design of the cottage which has the benefit of both a kitchen/dining room and a separate sitting room with a cosy wood burning stove.  Upstairs you will find a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and up a further flight of stairs a further twin bedroom.

Meadowsweet Cottage is next door and is also available to rent - the cottages can be rented individually or together if you have a larger group.

Please Note:  The owners consider this property is unsuitable for the elderly/infirm and children under 8 because of the water feature in the garden and the steep stairs.

Additional seating is provided under a shaded green roof  structure at the rear of the garden.  This is a newly planted garden but already provides a tranquil space to thoroughly relax in.


The water canals make this garden unsuitable for young children. 


Off road parking for two cars at the front of the cottages.

Two well behaved dogs re welcome at both Queenie's and Meadowsweet Cottages and the owner is happy to provide a crate for a dog should guests wish to go out for short periods without their pet.  Pets are not allowed upstairs or on the furniture in the cottage but if your pet is likely to jump on to the furniture, please provide a throw to protect the upholstery and to keep the furniture in a clean condition for the next guests, who may not have pets.
