The Old Post Office

This beautiful timber framed building was once the post office in Higham and has retained the large shop front window. The cottage has lots of space to relax in, with a cosy wood burning stove in the sitting room. The Old Post Office sleeps eight guests and welcomes dogs.

The Old Post Office provides a wonderful base to explore the beautiful countryside of Dedham Vale, closely associated with the works of John Constable. The cottage features in his painting, The Stour Valley from Higham.
Dating from the 1600s, this property has a wealth of features including exposed beams and fire places and provides a perfect property for a family get-together, allowing you to have a relaxing and peaceful time exploring the local area.
The charm of the original features such as the oak floor upstairs is balanced with the modern amenities of a well-equipped kitchen, bathrooms and comfy beds. There is a separate dining and sitting room with the original old post office situated at the front of the cottage, providing a further room to relax in. The cottage welcomes dogs so your four-legged friend is able to join you while you explore Suffolk. In the main cottage there are three bedrooms with a shared bathroom. The fourth bedroom is located in a separate building with its own en-suite shower room and a television providing privacy from the rest of the cottage.
Additional Information
Two well behaved dogs welcome (small additional charge).
Cot and high chair available on request (linen not supplied).
The floors both downstairs and upstairs are original and uneven. There is a large step down from the sitting room into the family room.
