Property code: OC-OBAT

Escape to the Suffolk countryside with the one you love, selecting this delightful couple’s retreat that enjoys a quintessential village setting in Trimley St Martin, a setting seemingly lost in time. Despite your quiet location, you’ll be just 3.5 miles from Felixstowe. This Edwardian Resort town is famed for its array of attractions including beaches, a historic pier, and lots of traditional seaside amusements. Whether you envisage meandering walks along the River Orwell or leisurely evenings tucking into fish and chips on Felixstowe’s beautiful beaches, you’ll find plenty to surprise and delight just a short drive from your doorstep. A 5-mile drive will reward you with Trimley Marshes Nature Reserve, which is a haven for bird watching.

Step inside to find your open-plan living space, a setting characterised by neutral decor, wooden flooring and natural light flooding in through the windows and skylight. Sophisticated yet cosy throughout, the interior has been cleverly zoned for relaxing, cooking and dining. You’ll find the sofas irresistible for relaxing, especially when you light the wood burner on chilly nights. There’s a kitchen area for preparing lavish meals a deux, and a dining table with seating for four should you wish to host supper with friends. Switch on the TV and watch a film together, or prepare hot cocoa and unwind in the snug with your favourite book. Weary from an eventful day, retreat to your bedroom and enjoy a restful night’s sleep in the king-size bed. Completing the property is a handy en-suite that’s equipped with a shower and WC.

Your accommodation overlooks the spectacular open countryside, offering marvellous sunset views and glimpses of elusive deer. It’s a sight to behold from the comfort of the decked terrace. This space is for your exclusive use, overlooking the owner’s garden space yet enclosed for privacy. You’ll have a BBQ for dining alfresco, perfect for warm evenings.

We have not booked a holiday cottage for a November stay before, so it was wonderful, on arrival, to find warm, comfortable rooms and a very welcome basket of goodies. Oak Barn Annexe was very well equipped. The snug room provides music if required and a good mix of reading matter, including local books. The weather wasnt quite warm enough for us tRead moreo enjoy the garden and covered outdoor seating area. We plan to return in the summer months, to take advantage of this special quiet spot. We used the excellent bus service between Felixstowe and Ipswich, giving us the opportunity to walk and discover the area. The owners, could not have been more friendly and helpful, giving us recommendations of walks and places to eat. Thank you. We felt totally relaxed and comfortable. Hide

Perfect location from which to explore the peninsular. Ideally situated from those who like to explore the rural area on foot. Very accommodating hosts who were always available to respond to any queries. We highly recommend this accommodation to others and will be visiting again when we next go to Suffolk.
