Fox Cottage

Fox Cottage is the home of Jan North and Andrew Wallis. It is situated in the small Suffolk hamlet of St Cross South Elmham and was, until 1962, the village pub: The Fox and Hounds. The oldest part of the house is timber framed and possibly as much as 400 years old. The pub’s former bottle store was converted some years ago into self-contained guest accommodation – named “Foxhole”.

St Cross South Elmham

St Cross South Elmham lies in the North of Suffolk, near to the Waveney Valley which forms the border between Suffolk and Norfolk. It is one of a group of hamlets – the South Elmhams and the Ilketshalls – known collectively as “The Saints”. It is only around 16 miles from the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coast and is in a quiet, rural location with many relaxing gentle local walks.   more 


Foxhole consists of a spacious bedroom with an en suite shower room and toilet. It has its own front door – quite separate from Fox Cottageā€™s front door – so you can come and go as you please. There is a woodburning stove and outside deck: making it a perfect place to stay whatever the season.

Foxhole is the only room we operate as bed and breakfast accommodation, so you can be sure of our undivided attention!   more
