The village pub ‘The Cock In’ is a short 15 minute walk down the lane where there is also a children’s play ground and grocery store. There is a footpath leading from the driveway around the farm heading towards the village and an unfenced pond on the farm as you walk down the footpath so please take care with your children and dogs.

The village of Polstead is located in South Suffolk not far from the Essex / Suffolk border. The village its self has a welcoming local pub called The Cock Inn which is a short walk through ancient woods and fields from Sprotts Farm. Just a little further past the pub is a large playing field with children’s play equipment and a skate park.
For days out the historic town of Colchester is less than 30 minutes drive and with large shopping centres, independent shops, cafes, restaurants and a castle there’s plenty to do. Don’t miss the fantastic Zoo and leisure centre, which are both fabulous for children and adults.
You’re also close to Dedham Vale, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The characteristic lowland English landscape made famous worldwide by artists such as Constable and Gainsborough is still recognisable today. The charm of the villages, fascinating local attractions and beauty of the surrounding countryside mean there’s no shortage of places to go and things to see.
If you're after a day out at the seaside then Frinton on Sea is perfect for groups of adults and young families. Less than an hour away there are clean sandy beaches, lots of parking and plenty of green spaces for playing and picnics.
A well behaved dog is welcome. Please provide the breed of your dogs at the time of booking.
There is a large pond in the garden beyond the fence from the footpath which runs along the boundary of the garden. There is a fence but it's post and rail so please be vigilant with dogs and children outside of the garden.
Sorry, no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers.
