Nestled in the village of Wangford is this traditional Georgian terraced cottage with a twist of contemporary living. Baxter House is a wonderful historic cottage ideally suited to family holidays being just five minutes’ drive from the seaside town of Southwold. Baxter House isn’t ashamed of its traditional roots with its wood floors, ceiling beams and internal latch doors. The sitting room boasts relaxation with comfortable terracotta sofas surrounding the electric fire. Also on the ground floor is a handy shower room with spacious shower cubicle and large wall tiles. The real ‘wow’ factor comes in the open plan room which has a gorgeous kitchen/diner extension at the rear which also has an additional sitting area. This fantastic room is the real hub of the home and a surprise from its traditional exterior. Many of the kitchen appliances are Neff branded - all adding to the ease of self-catering. Large bi-folding doors open onto the garden which has a large patio area with garden furniture and steps up to a good-sized lawn. The back garden gate opens onto the village allotments, floodlit tennis court, playing fields and children's play area - the perfect place to enjoy family time during the summer season.

Up the traditional cottage staircase to the first floor are the bedrooms which appeal to all ages. The master comes complete with a sumptuous super king size bed and a handy En-Suite. The second bedroom has a double bed as well as a full-size cot for tots, and there are also a further two single bedrooms both of a good size. The family bathroom is a contemporary suite with a bath tub and over bath shower and a Velux window allowing lots of natural light. 

Baxter House is the perfect choice for holidaying along the Heritage Coast with the bus stop just yards away which takes you directly to Southwold. The Angel Inn is just a few yards from the front door and offers a warm welcome, good food and a range of ales. Shop: 0.1 miles Pub: 50 yds.

Baxter House is lovely; comfortable, quiet, well equipped with plenty of space and also close to excellent local amenities. There is a very good shop in the village and a farm shop on the outskirts, plus an excellent pub a couple of minutes walk away.

Mrs P,

Very nice house. Beds comfortable. Location very good. Ate at the Angel Inn 3 times in one week and would have dined more but it was booked. Lovely garden. Kind and pleasant neighbours. Village store within a short walk and sticked everything. Would book again.

Mrs R,

Baxter House is extremely comfortable. They provide everything you need. The sofas and beds are good quality. The kitchen is great with the bifold doors into the garden. We were lucky with the weather so sat outside a great deal. The pantry was also very useful.

Mrs L,

Very well equipment property, very cosy and lovely for Xmas stay - Xmas tree and pamper pack lovey touch
