A warm and welcoming country Inn in the heart of East Anglia, where the pub claims a pint of Guinness tastes just as good as it does in Ireland. Whether you wish to enjoy a relaxing drink with the family, or a dining experience full of charm, the Elveden Inn with its warm open fires and friendly atmosphere is the perfect location.

They’re dog -friendly too so you can walk from the cottage through the forest, stop for refreshment and then make your way back, never needing to use the same path twice! !

The Inn is part of the Guinness-family owned Estate of Elveden and the family’s historic passion for great food and drink carries through into the Inn’s philosophy.

Guest Reviews

Flint cottage had the English charm I was hoping for. The host gave us a great tip about visiting Elveden Inn, which was nearby and very cool.. We loved it!

This cottage is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Suffolk countryside & Thetford Forest. We were easily able to park outside the cottage each day and the cottage was incredibly comfortable, with everything you could need. Technology was a real bonus and we were able to watch three great films on Netflix whilst we were there. We were impressed to see that a set of steak knives were provided…this is the first time we have stayed in a cottage containing these! Very cozy comfortable bed, nice bathroom and plenty of space in the utility area for boots, bags etc. We will not consider staying anywhere else when we return to the area and are already planning our next visit.
