Nestled among the trees, this recently built lodge in the heart of rural Suffolk certainly has the wow factor with stunning designs and every possible need taken into account - it’s perfect for a couple, group, or family enjoying a peaceful holiday in a stunning setting. Located on the outskirts of Stradbroke, the village pubs, restaurants, swimming pool and fitness centre, and independent shops are all close by, within 1 mile of the house. Head out to discover the stunning local countryside on foot or by bike with a visit to Thornham Walks (10 miles away), comprising 12 miles of woodland walks on the Thornham Estate. Explore the historic town of Eye, a 7-mile drive, and visit the remains of the town’s medieval castle, or visit Framlingham, 9 miles away, to explore the 12th-century castle where Mary Tudor became the first Queen of England. Head to the coast to enjoy the wonderful seaside towns and beaches of Southwold (22 miles) and Aldeburgh (24 miles).

The spacious open-plan living space has been designed with style and practicality in mind. It’s bright, with lots of natural light from the windows (including a skylight) and French doors that lead out to the decking. It has a well-equipped modern kitchen featuring an island and breakfast bar, a large dining area with funky furniture, and a comfortable sitting area. The two bedrooms are just as stylishly finished and furnished. Both have TVs and storage, and the king-size room also benefits from an en-suite with a large walk-in shower. The twin room has use of the stunning family bathroom with a gorgeous roll-top bath, perfect for relaxing after a fun-packed day.

Head out to the decked area from the open-plan space where there’s a BBQ and dining furniture – ideal for dining alfresco in the summer sun – as well as a beautiful, enclosed wildflower garden. Enjoy the stillness and surroundings, where wildlife sightings include owls, deer, buzzards, and woodpeckers.

This has been the BEST stay! Favourite so far! We loved the lodge - every detail is thought of (Claire is a genius!) and the bed is super cosy. We also went to Heveningham fireworks which is highly recommended! We will be back again.

Dear Claire and Mark, Once again we have had a wonderful week here. The lodge is well equipped and the welcome pack is great. The ladies eggs were scrumptious. Spent a lot of time at RSPB Minsmere, we have a seen goldcrest, blue tits and goldfinches in the garden and heard the woodpecker and tawny owl. Hope to be back next year, thank you again.

Woodpecker lodge was the perfect getaway for our family, modern, clean interior with everything you need inside and out. Short walk to the nearest village and only 40 from the beach. Great spot for adventuring around Suffolk. Very helpful and friendly hosts.

Lovely, very comfortable cottage, the best we've stayed in. It has everything you need and made a great holiday for us. Great location to visit all of Suffolk, especially Southwold, Aldeburgh, Debenham, Lavenham (must see place!), Dunwich Heath (National Trust) and Orford Ness. Old Felixstowe is worth a visit, along with the sea front and the driveRead more to Shotley Gate is worthwhile to see the container ships being unloaded across the River Orwell. Thank you for a lovely stay Claire and Mark. Hide
