Property code: OC-JAP

Whisk your loved one away for a delightful weekend at this cosy Suffolk cottage and take your beloved four-legged friend as well. Nestled within the tranquil village of Whenhaston, the inviting one-bedroom retreat makes a charming and romantic base right on the edge of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With a lawned garden for your pet to race about in, while you relax in the sunshine, the cottage is 5.5 miles from the charming seaside village of Walberswick and 7 miles from colourful Southwold.

Let yourselves into the cottage, which has underfloor heating downstairs, and wander through to the kitchen/diner to unpack the fresh Suffolk provisions you have stocked up on at farm shops and rustle up a candle-lit dinner to enjoy together at the table. Afterwards, take a bottle of wine through to the lounge, where you can choose a book, play a game or find a good film on TV. There is also a WC downstairs. When you are ready to turn in for the night, climb the stairs up to the first floor to lay your heads in the king-size bedroom. There is also a family bathroom up here. Enjoy the garden to your hearts’ content. Dine out here on warm days and sip a glass of wine as the sun goes down. The garden has an access point and laundry room which is shared with a neighbouring cottage. Parking is on the street, subject to availability.

Follow riverside, marsh and heathland walks through the area of outstanding natural beauty. Shop and dine out in Southwold. Spend time in Dunwich, 5 miles away, and also on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. This quiet village, which was once a bustling medieval port that disappeared beneath the waves, has a lovely beach and picturesque heath.

We experienced a leak from the bath/shower during our stay. Although it was a Sunday the problem was dealt with promptly by the management company and resolved quickly by their contractor. The cottage was exactly as advertised and the facilities good. The nearby Star Inn pub served excellent food and a relaxing atmosphere.

Good size well equipped cottage for me and my husband plus dog. Enclosed garden perfect for the dog and plenty of places for dog walks close by. Good pub a short walk away and southwold, Dunwich, Aldeburgh and Thorpeness a short drive away all worth a visit

Great property in the very friendly village of Wenhaston. Quiet, good garden for our dog and all the conveniences of home. Everything you could ask for is nearby including the wonderful Star Inn where the locals and their dogs were also very friendly. Visited many other village including Southwold, Bungay, Walberswick and Halesworth all within 20 mRead moreinutes and enjoyed their restaurants, pubs and shopping. Highly recommended property and location, we will be back! Hide

Perfect! The 3 star rating belies how good this property really is.... equipped well and an ideal space for 2 people. Simply and comfortably furnished with quality and practicality. Street parking was easy, though a car is essential to visit the coast.
