Property code: OC-WLO

Put the outside world on pause at this spacious cottage, which sits in tranquil surroundings only 7 miles from the historic town of Framlingham. Located close to the Suffolk Heritage Coast, the cottage boasts large living areas and an enclosed garden with access to two-and-a-half acres of private woodland. Perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway.

Your rural hideaway has been finished to an incredible standard, its attractive garden setting the scene as you wander up the gravel pathway and into a characterful interior flooded with natural light and contemporary furnishings across oak flooring. Enjoy lazy days or cosy nights sprawled across the sitting room furniture, perhaps between meals crafted in the kitchen/diner whose French doors can be thrown open during warmer months. Retreat to the confines of the king-size bedroom when night time comes, and start the day right in the large bathroom opposite. The enclosed cottage garden is a wonderful place to enjoy morning coffees and evening cocktails surrounded by attractive plants and shrubs. If you can tear yourselves away from this colourful slice of paradise, why not explore the two-and-a-half acres of woodland beyond belonging to the cottage’s owners?

Numerous footpaths crisscross the countryside surrounding Wilby (500 metres), an attractive hamlet typical of the villages found across the county. Head to Stradbroke (2 miles) for a pint and essentials, or get to know more about the history of the area at the beautiful market town of Framlingham (7 miles). The Suffolk Heritage Coast is home to captivating shorelines, with a trip to Dunwich’s sand and shingle beach (18 miles) worth the journey alone.

Not expect t have to strip bed and then take towels and bedding to an adjoining building. A fan would have been welcomed. Parking sometimes compromised by activities on site, A dedicated parking space should be available for residents. Travel directions only give from Ipswich. Not good when travelling from the north.

Yet another lovely week in Woodland Lodge, as comfortable and luxurious as ever! Thank you so much for all your preparations and for your help during our stay. The cooler damp weather did not lessen our enjoyment and between lounging around we loved walking and running on the land, roads and footpaths. Sunday roasts at Bressingham were outstandingRead more and among Framlingham's many delights coffee and cake at The Hungry Goat in the market place were a treat. Even though this is our 5th visit there is still so much to do and see as well as having a thoroughly relaxing peaceful holiday. Hope to be back, God willing! Hide

An absolutely lovely lodge with high quality equipment and decor. Felt very private and with the well equipped kitchen, outside space and living area it gave us the flexibility to go out or stay in as we pleased. Charlotte was available for any questions we had and we had a lovely stay. Hope to come back soon!
