2 The Homestead is a pet-friendly ‘home from home’ in a beautiful hamlet only 5 miles from Southwold.  New owners have lovingly upgraded this cottage at the beginning of 2022, to provide well-equipped, modern and cosy self-catering accommodation for your next holiday away from it all.  Situated in a quiet, rural hamlet and with a quarter of an acre of  lawn, 2 The Homestead is perfect for both relaxing and enjoying the coast and countryside. Birdwatching, walking and cycling are all right on the doorstep in this heart of Suffolk. Easy access to Southwold (5 miles), Minsmere, Dunwich and much more, there is lots to explore.

A more charming and tranquil setting would be hard to find. A quiet country lane leads you through woodland and past open fields to the tiny hamlet of Clay Common. 2 The Homestead is set within a large, lawned garden with private off-street parking. Open the windows to delight in the birdsong. At the end of the day stargazers can view the beauty of the stars as there is no light pollution in Clay Common. 2 The Homestead is a peaceful, homely cottage where the hustle and bustle of everyday life can be put on hold. It has been in the owners' family for 4 generations and has recently been modernised.

Cyclists too will love exploring the network of trails in the area - one in particular which runs outside the property, leads to the Hundred River at Rushmere. A trip along the back roads can even take you to the small town of Halesworth. A full breakdown of cycle routes can be seen here. Southwold 5 miles, Covehithe 4 miles, Dunwich 9 miles and Minsmere 11 miles.

Why we love this property: Perfect for group of friends or two families looking for a simple and memorable holiday within easy reach of the Suffolk Heritage coast.

A peaceful location and very comfortable beds, with disabled access to facilities.

Mrs Neumark J,

We found the house to be well proportioned, nicely decorated, clean and well furnished - very comfortable beds. Large, dog-friendly garden and surrounded by woodlands and farmland. Two pubs with good food and a well stocked shop nearby, all within easy driving distance of the coast. A good holiday destination.

Mrs B,
