This is a pretty, rustic cosy cottage with all mod cons in a lovely hamlet. Although tucked away, the touristy areas are within easy striking distance. The garden is a particular favourite with children as it is both wild and safe. Great local pub
Very pretty and cosy 18th century cottage with all modern amenities set back from the road in a Suffolk hamlet with a cottage garden leading to a secret orchard garden and surrounding fields.
The cottage has just been completely refurbished to a high standard. The kitchen is fully equipped with a washing machine, fridge/freezer, electric oven and hob, dishwasher and microwave. There is a wood burning stove in the living room and underfloor heating in the living and dining rooms. There is a sofa bed in the living room if required for extra guests. The downstairs wetroom has an electric power shower, hand basin and toilet. The two pretty bedrooms upstairs look out into the garden and have electric radiators for heating. The family bathroom has a Victorian style claw foot bath and electric towel rail. There is ample clothes storage space in built-in wardrobes on the landing. The cottage has Sky+ tv with wifi broadband.
The rear garden is well-planted and there is a path leading to a secure secret garden where there are fruit trees and a loose box for storage of bikes.
The hamlet is secluded, but only 3 miles off the A12, so is very convenient for Aldeburgh, Snape, Saxmundham and Southwold. There are beautiful walks all around the village, especially in the Woodland Trust forest at the rear.
A car or bike is essential as public transport does not reach this neck of the woods, although Saxmundham, the nearest town of any size and where there are supermarkets Waitrose and Tescos, has a railway station linking to Liverpool Street station in London and is 10 minutes drive away.
A small, well-behaved dog would be permitted.
The beaches of Aldeburgh and Southwold are within 25 mins drive and the Snape Maltings are 15 mins away. Orford is worth a visit - especially the bakery! The Mimsmere Wildlife Reserve - now made famous through the BBC's Springwatch - is not too far away. There are lovely walks through Woodland Trust land local to the village.
I would just ask that you treat the cottage with respect as it is also my home, but hope that you would feel equally at home too. There is no smoking in the cottage.
