Rose Cottage bed and breakfast

Welcome to Rose Cottage, a luxury bed and breakfast between Beccles and Bungay in Suffolk.

Situated on a quiet country lane in South Norfolk, on the Norfolk / Suffolk border and close to the southern end of the Norfolk Broads, Rose Cottage is our family home overlooking the picturesque Waveney Valley, a favourite subject for landscape painter Sir Alfred Munnings.

It is a 19th century Norfolk cottage sympathetically restored. Traditional features, such as ledge and brace doors and Suffolk latches, are complemented by modern facilities to give your break a touch of luxury with a classical feel.

During your stay you are welcome to relax in our conservatory or enjoy the garden, which it overlooks. We have a selection of local maps and books to help you plan your days out.

We hope you enjoy a relaxing and pleasant stay with us.
