With the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War I this year, did you know that the nearby Elveden Estate was used during the war in 1916 as a top secret testing and training area for a new invention?
Wild swimming in winter anybody? Perhaps not.. However, it could be something to consider in the summer holidays when the weather warms up a bit! If you’re staying with us this year, why not give it a visit.
Did you know we’re very close to RAF Lakenheath and other air bases in our area?
Flint Cottage has been very popular the last few years for people visiting family at Lakenheath or on a business trip to the base. Guests like it because it’s conveniently located nearby in Brandon and has everything they need for a comfortable stay.
The Forestry Commission, who manage Thetford Forest, have been awarded £610,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a project to allow people to explore our areas past.
The scheme, titled ‘Trailing the hidden heritage of High Lodge’, will include the construction of a 4.2km trail for people to find out about how features of the area have been created – from gun flint mining to the creation of the forest itself.
Brandon Country Park in Thetford Forest is just a few minutes from Flint Cottage and is a magical place for exploring on foot or by bike – particularly in the autumn with the trees displaying such a glorious array of colours.
Flint Cottage is a 2 bedroom holiday cottage located in Brandon, Suffolk, on the edge of Thetford Forest and the Brecks. It is very well located for visiting the Spa at Elveden Forest and Center parcs – without having to go to the expense of staying there.
