With more than just a little bit of country charm, this home in Stoke-By-Nayland is surrounded by a bookshop, the village shop and a traditional pub. Built in the 16th century, it was originally a bakehouse and three cottages, which have been knocked through to create one spacious stay. Intriguing features from the 1500s are found at every corner, from oak beams running across the ceiling to sash windows which overlook the neighbouring redbrick houses. A sense of history is added thanks to the careful curated antiques that characterise the home; we love browsing the bookshelves or admiring the landscapes that decorate walls. On sunny days, you'll find us outside in the long fenced-in garden, with its dining table and chairs – perfect for sipping something chilled.
Home truths: *The dining table in the kitchen only has room for six people, though there is further seating in a second dining room
