This beautiful holiday home offers guests a light and bright property with plenty of social space to enjoy quality time together whilst being in a fantastic coastal location to enjoy all that Suffolk has to offer.

At the heart of the home is a spacious open plan room, with high vaulted ceilings, exposed timber frame and skylights allowing the light to flood in. The open space is the hub and plays host to a wonderful sitting area which boasts beautiful blue velvet sofas all centred around the roaring woodburner for those cosy days by the fire watching a movie. A large dining table looks out across the courtyard and landscaped garden and is the perfect spot to enjoy lazy lunches and delicious dinners. This coastal bolthole offers four generous bedrooms and accommodates eight guests. Each bedroom has views over the tree canopy so you can watch the clouds float by and birds dancing in the sky from the comfort of bed.

Bridge Cottage is perfectly placed within Eastbridge to enjoy the cosy village pub ‘The Eels Foot Inn’ and the beautiful RSPB Minsmere. Directly from your doorstep you can access many footpaths that lead straight onto the golden sands and shingle beach. Head towards Dunwich and you will be in the centre of Minsmere reserve and is a nature lovers paradise with plenty of water birds and wildlife to spot.

Why we love this property: A perfect holiday home in a wonderful coastal village with easy access to the beach and nature reserves.

Eastbridge is well off the beaten track and known as the back way into Minsmere and a favoured location of wildlife enthusiasts and ramblers. The exceptionally unspoilt countryside certainly earns a mention as one of Suffolk's best-kept secrets. Minsmere Visitor Centre is one and a half miles away and the beach is also one and a half miles (on foot). The hamlet is six miles from Aldeburgh and two miles from Leiston. Trains can be found six miles away at Darsham and buses two miles away at Leiston.
