Nestled on the outskirts of the traditional market town of Halesworth is the delightfully pretty and deceptively spacious Ivy Cottage.  With fantastic links to both the coastal favourite of Southwold and the beautiful Suffolk countryside, this property offers the ideal base for three.

Ivy Cottage is beautifully decorated throughout in neutral shades with accommodation over two floors. Stow away those holiday essentials in the handy entrance hall which provides all the storage space you need for a fantastic weekend or week-long break. Walking through you will be greeted by a spacious and contemporary kitchen providing the ideal sociable space to whip up culinary delights during your self-catering stay. The cosy sitting room comes complete with a welcoming woodburner for the cooler evenings.

The bedrooms are simply stunning and offer a touch of luxury with coordinating colours. With two bedrooms on the first floor, one with king size bed and the second a single bed, this quaint cottage is perfect for a family of three or a couple looking for a bit more space. The modern and tasteful bedrooms provide the perfect place to recharge your batteries after exploring the wonderful market town of Halesworth or a day spent by the Suffolk coast. To top off your self-catering stay at Ivy Cottage, step outside into a well landscaped garden, in which you can appreciate the Suffolk sunsets whilst enjoying a pre-dinner aperitif.

Get out and about and explore the area… with amenities close by, delightful tearooms, restaurants and pubs and only a short drive to the Suffolk coast. This bolthole ticks all the boxes for your next Suffolk staycation.

The small market town of Halesworth can be found north east of Suffolk, around ten miles inland from the heritage coast. Halesworth benefits from its own railway station with links to Ipswich, Norwich and London. At the centre of the town is The Thoroughfare, a shopping street lined with many Georgian and Victorian buildings and is completely pedestrianised, perfect for browsing boutiques at your leisure. Shops include bakeries, clothing, gifts, stationery and more. There are also many professional establishments in Halesworth which gives the town a bit of hustle and bustle each day. At one end of The Thoroughfare you’ll find the large library and just a few minutes’ walk from here is The Cut which is the town’s art centre with many shows, musicals, craft shows and more taking place throughout the year. Halesworth is a great destination for shopping, walking and cycling with rural villages surrounding the town waiting to be explored.

Lovely cottage, cosy and comfortable, very well equipped. Spotlessly clean, would highly recommend.

Mrs T,

Really lovely cottage, full of everything you could want for a holiday stay. Halesworth has all the amenities. Only negative is the location of the cottage is next to the main road.

Miss W,

We felt at home as soon as we entered this comfortable and extremely well equipped cottage. Fittings and furnishings are of the highest standard and the whole atmosphere was conducive to a relaxed and enjoyable stay. Can't recommend Ivy Cottage highly enough, superb.

Miss B,
