About the Property: This pretty end-of-terrace cottage is part of an imposing 17th century property, which stands on the summit of a hill overlooking the Blyth Valley. It is now hard to believe that the original purpose of these wonderful buildings, set as they are in 14 acres of parkland with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside, once operated as a workhouse. 

Approached along an impressive tree lined driveway, Amrose Cottage enjoys its own small garden and access to the large communal grounds that surround the property. The indoor heated pool and gym are just a minute's walk from the cottage and are available to holidaymakers throughout the year. Leisure Pool  time slots must be pre-booked. 

Exploring: Just a few minutes drive from Suffolk's Heritage coast and set in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Amrose Cottage will appeal to visitors whatever the weather. Located within the spectacular north-east Suffolk countryside, famous for its beautiful landscapes, rugged coastline, charming seaside towns and inland villages, Amrose is set back and secluded from the road, yet offers easy access to the A12.

The idyllic coastal town of Southwold, famous for its Georgian and Victorian architecture, individual shops, traditional pubs and restaurants and fully refurbished pier, is situated just four miles east of Amrose Cottage. The enchanting coastal villages of Walberswick (just 10 minutes' drive), Dunwich, and RSPB Minsmere are all within an easy drive to the southeast. Further south along the coastline lies the town of Aldeburgh, well known for its music and arts festival, sailing and golf, with Snape Maltings, home of the world-famous Aldeburgh Festival and Snape Proms, just 10 minutes' drive inland.

This property is ideal for: Families with young children and teenagers. There is a selection of board games at the property - perfect for rainy days. For those sunny days, sit out in the garden or take a dip in the pool. With attractive walks on your very doorstep, it is also a great base for cyclists and birdwatchers.

Self Catering Eating and Drinking: Just a 10 minute drive away from Amrose is Emmerdale Farm Shop, stocking a good selection of fresh meat as well as fruit and vegetables in a traditional farmer's market style. A variety of home-made frozen meals are also on offer. Head to Southwold just 10 minutes away, a great opportunity to visit the Adnams Cellar and Kitchen as well as a wide variety of independent food shops.

Eating Out: The nearest pubs are The Queen's Head, Blyford (which you can walk to, mostly along the disused canal) and The White Hart, Blythburgh. After a day spent at the beach, Southwold has a delightful array of pubs and restaurants; why not catch a sunset supper at The Boardwalk Restaurant

Mr L,

Our family of 4 (including 2 kids aged 5 and 8) thoroughly enjoyed our week at Amrose Cottage recently. The cottage is well located close to Southwold, Dunwich Heath and Walberswick, all great for a day out if you do not want to venture too far. The cottage itself feels like a home away from home with all the amenities one could possibly need, and the pool, gym and games room were a fantastic addition. The swimming pool is very popular so early booking via their online system is essential. There are so many areas to explore in Suffolk that we will be back for sure. Thank you!

Mrs B,

Lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage in great location. Only 10 minutes to the coast, but out of the way of busyness. Lovely view from the back field.

Mrs B,

Lovely location - only 10 mins away from Southwold. Swimming pool a bonus.

mrs B,

We've stayed here twice now as it is a very comfortable cottage which is ideal for what we want to do - walking and bird watching. The fact that it is not right on the coast surrounded by many other people is a plus for us, but might not suit a family with young children so well. The swimming pool is a huge bonus and we found we were able to book slots very easily.

Mrs B,
