Property code: OC-GRS

A small mid-terrace cottage on the edge of a quiet village within 3 miles of Dunwich, one of the most historic settlements in the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB. Offering a peaceful sitting room, conservatory and an enclosed rear garden, this dog-friendly cottage is perfect for small families or a pair of couples longing for a restful break surrounded by gently undulating countryside.

Located on a quiet lane, this deceptively large cottage dates back to the 19th century and makes good use of space across its two tastefully-appointed floors. The sitting room is a comfortable place to enjoy refreshments and film nights and is just a few paw prints from the dining area housed within an airy conservatory enjoying garden views through French doors. The family bathroom is found on the ground floor, with the first floor bedrooms accessible via a staircase in the galley kitchen. There is ample storage space in the double bedroom, while the twin bedroom features two quirky cabin beds designed for guests young and old. The enclosed patio garden at the rear of the garden is split into two sections and is a fantastic spot for morning coffees, catching the sun over a good book or fortifying nightcaps before lights out.

Westleton is an attractive village offering a host of dog-friendly amenities, with various paths and trails leading off in all directions across open heath and mixed woodland. Minsmere Nature Reserve, home to some of the UK’s rarest wildlife, lies within 2.5 miles of the property, while Dunwich, the site of the former capital of the Kingdom of the East Angles, feeds towards a shingle beach. The colourful and bustling seaside towns of Aldeburgh Southwold both lie within 10 miles.

Lovely property, really nice rural location. Kitchen well laid out, loved the cooker. The king size bed - wow - so comfortable. Good dog walking area, with a short walk to the beach. Lots of dog friendly pubs in the area.
