Spindrift is a pretty cottage dating from about 1880 and set within an equally pretty village, just on the outskirts of the glorious Suffolk Coast and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This cosy bolthole is the perfect place for couples, families or friends looking to come away to a quiet village close by to the popular coastal hotspots. 

Relax and unwind with a good book in the snug or curl up in front of the wood burner following a long stroll along the many footpaths in the surrounding countryside. The kitchen is well equipped for your stay to whip up some delicious meals. There is also a BBQ for you to dine al fresco too. Perhaps you fancy a night off cooking, in which case, head off down to either of the two nearby pubs; -“The Star “ in Wenhaston or “The Queens Head” at Blyford for some local food

Two bedrooms and two bathrooms are available to accommodate up to four guests however if you are looking for some additional space for extra guests, look no further than the adjoining property Japonica Cottage which can accommodate a further two people.
