Vendor’s Statement:

“The first time we entered Corner Cottage we noted the

warm atmosphere and homely feel and knew then that we

wanted to buy it”. “As we walked around we loved the

quirkiness and uniqueness that a cottage home brings and

having the mature cottage garden was a bonus”. “Now,

five years later we still love the character features, some

of which we actually unearthed for ourselves - the dining

room inglenook fireplace with its bread oven and many of

the original beams”. “We have also had great pleasure in

sourcing local materials/craftsmen to restore the cottage

and in particular, watching the master thatchers at work

on the roof”. “We love sitting in the kitchen with the

warmth of the Esse stove, and the sitting room and dining

room have such a relaxing atmosphere especially when sat

with the wood burning stoves lit in Winter”.

“For us, Combs has proved the ideal location amid

farmland and countryside with easy commuting either by

rail from Stowmarket to London or road access to the

A14”. “We are far enough away from Stowmarket to

feel part of the Combs village community but close

enough by car to benefit from the facilities on offer e.g.

leisure centre, supermarkets and other local

shopping, local market, doctors surgery, cinema,

restaurants and public houses”.

“After relocating back to Suffolk and getting married in

the village church, we will take with us some very fond

memories of Corner Cottage and the village, but now the

family has expanded so we need to move on”. “It has

been the ideal home for us”.
