A holiday cottage set in the east Suffolk countryside has been named one of the UK's best winter getaways by a national newspaper.

The Coach House at Belle Grove, in Westhall north of Halesworth, has been included in The Guardian's list of the 20 best cosy UK cottages for a winter break.

Written by travel journalist Sarah Baxter, the guide shines a light on a series of retreats across the country, including one each in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

Belle Grove's Coach House sleeps four people, is pet-friendly and prices start from £850 for three nights or £950 a week.

The Guardian guide said: "To spice up the season, head for Belle Grove, a working farm-cum-retreat, where a handful of cottages ooze far-eastern flair.

"Take the Coach House: both double bedrooms – one deep blue, one rich red – have en suites with double-end baths and oodles of wow-factor, while Balinese textiles and exotic antiques sit among the low timbers, squishy sofas and huge fireplace.

"The grounds beyond are a delight, especially on frosty days, while the community-run Racehorse pub is a mile away and Halesworth’s chef-run Boarding House restaurant is three miles away. Southwold and the blustery Suffolk coast are also close by."
