Property code: OC-CLO

Light, bright and spacious, this holiday home offers a refreshing base from which to explore the beauty of the Suffolk coast and countryside, ideal for couples. Just 6 miles away is the mediaeval village of Lavenham where quaint tearooms, fine restaurants and the Harry Potter filming location of Godric’s Hollow can be found to fill a leisurely day of exploring.

As you step inside, the open-plan living area welcomes you with a sofa and armchair to sink into to watch a film. The kitchen has a country style with pastel cabinets and wooden countertops, matching the dining table. Finishing off the floor is the all-white bathroom where you can relax with a soak in the tub, or refresh after a long day of exploring with the overhead shower. Up on the first floor you’ll find two tasteful bedrooms, a minimalist king-size with a window set into an alcove and a cosy single room which is perfect for children, as well as an additional WC. The enclosed garden offers complete privacy, with a table, chairs and parasol to ensure you can make the most of sunny weather be it dining al fresco or sitting and reading a book in the sunshine.

Half a mile away, Sudbury Water Meadows is a wonderful place to walk with riverside trails, wildflowers lining the pathways and a variety of animals to spot along the circular route. Head to National Trust Melford Hall to visit the historic Tudor house with its moat, deer park and well-maintained gardens which are a pleasure to walk through at all times of the year. Further afield, visit the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB (20 miles) for a change of scenery and marvel at the rugged coastline. From here you’ll have easy access to Dedham Vale AONB (18 miles) and Dovercourt Beach (30 miles).

We had a lovely time at this cottage and it was all quite easy to book. The location was perfect for us and our dog and we were able to relax.

The cottage is comfortable, clean and very well equipped. It is in the ideal location from which to explore the many attractions Suffolk has to offer such as Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Lavenham, Melford, Flatford Mill and the Anglo-Saxon village at West Stow.

A lovely light filled cottage, excellent location for exploring Suffolk, could possibly do with a new settee and chair as it now sinks fairly low when you sit on it, wonderfully well equipped in kitchen and spotlessly clean, we have stayed here four times now
