Kersey, Suffolk, Country village

Cressland is a spacious and luxurious Suffolk country holiday cottage with a host of original features and has been awarded 5 Star Gold by VisitEngland.

The perfect retreat for a romantic break or family holiday. Cressland is part of a Grade II * listed 15th century timber framed, courtyard house which overlooks the famous Kersey “Splash” (ford) and former marketplace. Cressland contains two 16th century parlour bays (now the sitting room and dining room), with attached Tudor service bay (now the kitchen). See if you can spot the daisy wheel which is carved into the Bressemer beam in the dining room, intended to ward off evil spirits.

The Suffolk brick floors, exposed floorboards and fireplaces are all original and parts of the house date back to the 1400s. Over the years Cressland has seen many changes and additions.
