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.

We really enjoyed our stay in this pretty cottage. It was cosy, clean and perfect for a long weekend. The garden is very pretty and fully enclosed which was perfect for our children and dog. The area is really special with Minsmere only a walk away and so many beautiful villages and beaches to visit in the area.

Mrs W,

We love Eastbridge but this was our first visit to Willow Farm. Perfectly situated for MInsmere and all the surrounding Suffolk coasts and heaths, and just a few paces from the delightful Eels Foot Inn! An added bonus! House was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with a charming and peaceful garden. Would highly recommend a visit.

Mrs C,

I cannot rate this cottage too highly. The lovely large enclosed garden, the well equipped and organised kitchen along with the easily controlled central heating and cosy log burning stove, all contributed to an amazing holiday. Surrounded by beautiful traffic free walks, our dog had an amazing holiday too! A real home from home. We are ready to book again for next year already!

Mrs D,

Lovely cottage with amazing outdoor space.

Mr D,

Our stay at Willow Farm was enjoyable and comfortable, and the location was a great base from which to explore the area on both foot and by car. The accommodation was well equipped and whilst access via the lane is tight for a larger car, once in the garden and house it felt tranquil and remote without being isolating.

Mrs W,

A very nice place in a lovely quiet village and only a short walk to the coast. The house was very well appointed inside with only the most minor absence, no shaver points.
