House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children (2–12 yrs) and the host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
Our self-contained cosy studio has good internet speeds making it suitable for both working and relaxing. Well situated with local shops, cafe and pub. You can idle time away reading, walking, or cycling along the pretty country lanes. Your well-behaved, small dog is also welcome to stay. Bring your bike and we can store it for you, or borrow one of ours. Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect before and after your stay.

The space
The Old Forge is Grade II listed 15th century timber framed building converted from part of our home. The cottage is completely self-contained, accessed via coach doors from the street into an open plan living/dining area with a compact kitchenette. Up a curling staircase is a romantic vaulted beamed bedroom with ensuite power shower. We provide luxury soft fluffy towels and crisp Egyptian cotton linen for that extra comfort.

Guest access
This is a self-contained annexe next door to our house. It is accessed via its own front door from the street with parking outside.

Other things to note
There is no garden with this cottage but on a warm day you can have the coach doors open into the living space or relax in the church yard opposite.

We are a family of four who moved to Boxford 17 years ago. We fell in love with the timeless friendly village which is away from the rat race but accessible to the life of Bury St Edmunds or Woodbridge should we need. We have lovingly restored our 15th century house including making this independent cottage which we have been welcoming guests to for 9 years. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do.
