About The Thoringtons

A cosy two-bedroom gate lodge alongside a striking eight-bedroom 17th century farmhouse with fine historic detailing throughout. Perfect for large family gatherings or groups holidaying together.

Two individual cottages sleeping a total of 21 guests and 5 dogs.

Get together with the familiy or group of friends and head to this group of two cottages located in the beautiful setting of Stoke By Nayland. 

There’s lots of space, inside and out – perfect for big families and groups looking for a getaway with a difference. Up to five dogs are also welcome (and there’re plenty of walks to keep them happy). There are log burners fit for cosy evenings along with modern facilities and, outside, there’s a large, enclosed garden with an orchard, stables and even a basic tennis court – great for a knock about. 

You can’t beat Thorington for a beautiful setting and there are walks straight from the front door. Nearby you can visit Sutton Hoo, an Anglo-Saxon royal burial site and one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. When you come to stay, the funds from your holiday go towards rewarding projects like this and essential conservation work at the places we look after.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
