Welcome to The Old Monkey

Tucked away in the village of Hadleigh, Suffolk, The Old Monkey is a lovely cottage with bags of character & style.

The location is picturesque. Hadleigh boasts many pubs, restaurants, boutique shops as well as nearby cycling and walking routes. A 4.5 mile circular walk around Hadleigh takes in both the pretty railway walk and the lovely riverside walk.

Exposed wooden beams are a vibrant feature in the cottage - and the open log fire is a fine addition in the main room, where you can cuddle up and watch the flames flicker away in the large cosy sofa.
