Welcome to the Old Rectory Cottages
The Old Rectory at Flixton near Bungay offers four, one bedroom self catering holiday cottages. Situated on the border between Suffolk and Norfolk, and laying in grounds of almost seven acres – surrounded by farmland on three sides, the grounds are a haven for wildlife. The four cottages provide the ideal holiday location if you want to leave behind the strains of town or city living and relax in the tranquil surroundings of a Victorian rectory amidst rolling unspoilt Suffolk countryside A very special place to stay -and we want it to remain that way. That's why we do everything we can to protect our environment and encourage our guests to do the same.
Well behaved dogs are welcome in all of our holiday cottages.
The cottages have been sympathetically converted from Victorian buildings retaining the original features where possible. Individually decorated and furnished to a very high standard, to ensure they are as unique in character as they are diverse in style. Enjoy the King or Super King size bed and the luxury of the cotton towels & linen. The holiday cottages have a 4-Star assessment by VisitEngland. In addition all four of our cottages have received the accolade of a coveted Gold Award – reserved for accommodation that provides exceptional quality in all areas, but in particular in service and hospitality.

We normally welcome you personally to The Old Rectory and show you around your cottage. We are here during your stay in the event that you wish to contact us. We have a good knowledge of the local area which enables us to recommend places or events that many visitors to the area do not get the opportunity to experience and our philosophy is to go the “extra mile” to ensure you have a really enjoyable holiday!
We offer short breaks between October and the end of April, but it is always worthwhile telephoning us or looking at our website at other times if you are arranging a last minute break.
The village pub is a short stroll away from the cottages and there is plenty to tempt you out and about.
You can even combine all the freedom of a self catering holiday with the luxury of being pampered - we can prepare meals for you during your stay with one of our Dog’s Dinner Breaks or a Fine Dining Experience.
