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.

I would recommend this property to anyoneMr Melvyn Packham - 16th July 2018
Our second visit to Willow Farm and certainly won't be our last! Absolutely wonderful time spent and as always a flawless booking experience with Suffolk Secrets, thank you.Mr Lee Webb - 27th April 2017
It was very good,we have a dog and needed some out door space for her which it certainly provided. The pub was just a minutes walk away and very dog friendly, no complaints, lovely and quiet in the evenings, and we had an ample supply of wood provided which was certainly a bonus, thank you very much.Mrs June Bedford - 3rd February 2017
The cottage was full of character, clean and comfortable with a large garden. It more than exceeded our expectations. The local area was also beautiful.Mr G Burrows - 25th May 2016
A lovely spacious peaceful cottage, with generous welcome pack, and perfectly positioned for Minsmere, being almost on the edge of the reserve. Local pub, The Eel's Foot Inn, is great and food is excellent. Definitely recommend if you are into birdwatching!Mrs Helen Anderton - 4th May 2016
