This quiet corner of Suffolk is an ideal retreat for guests wishing to find a relaxing break with days sightseeing.

Just four miles away is Suffolks Heritage Coast where you may wish to take a stroll along Aldeburgh high street with a wide selection of boutiques, eateries and art galleries or try award winning fish and chips on the promenade lined by pretty pastel coloured 19th century villas. The coast is also home of the renowned reserve RSPB Minsmere, Orford Ness, Snape Maltings shops and concert hall and of course the lovely sandy beaches of the popular seaside resorts of Walberswick and Southwold.

Upon arriving at the cottages guests will enter the property to find an open-plan kitchen/diner which is well equipped for those choosing to dine in with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge. The lounge features an exposed brick fireplace with wood burner, a two seater sofa and two fireside chairs to ensure a relaxed and cosy feel while watching the TV/DVD. Also on the ground floor is a separate WC and a porch with washing machine and tumble dryer. The steep cottage style stairs lead to the first floor where you will find two bedrooms, a double and a bunk bedroom. Finishing the accommodation is the bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Venturing outside, the cottage has pretty gardens with large raised decking area with picnic table, ideal for some alfresco dining and an enclosed lawn area for children or pets to expend any excess energy. There is off-road parking for one car at the rear of the cottage as well as the start of a walking trail. Sandy or muddy paws can also make use of the outside tap.

Lovely tiny cottage in a great rural location, very welcoming and friendly owner who helped us charge our electric car. All key equipment and features were fine. Very quiet, close to a lovely pub and some good walks from the door.

Lovely compact cottage in a quiet village. Excellent pub nearby with friendly staff and great food. Although no shops in walking distance, there's a large Tesco & Waitrose just a short drive away. Snape Maltings nearby which is highly recommended for lovely walks, shops and food. We had a really enjoyable break.

Very peaceful location, even with a road right nearby. The cottage is lovely and comfortable. The stairs to the bedroom are very steep and would not suit an elderly person. It's lucky there is a downstairs toilet which saves having to go up and down the stairs. The kitchen and dining room is very spacious. For tall people mind your head on the doorRead moreways. Hide

Great location for exploring the area and a large garden perfect for the dogs. Bonus is a great pub just across the road. However although the bed was comfy and the shower more than adequate the decor and fixtures and fittings are sadly dated and showing wear and tear.
