Ideally located just off the A12, Vine Cottage provides the perfect ground floor hideaway for two. Just a short drive from the coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold whilst also being perfectly situated for a visit to RSPB Minsmere; an ideal haven for nature and bird lovers.

This light, bright and welcoming abode has been furnished with the holidaymaker in mind. The open plan living area is both comfortable and practical. The fitted kitchen has a modern style, whilst the table and furniture reflect the countryside setting. Windows look out to the garden beyond, helping to draw the outside in. 

The bedroom is truly homely; complete with superking size bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table, there is plenty of room to store your belongings and call Vine Cottage 'home'. 

Although Vine Cottage is in the grounds of the owner's property, it is completely private and self contained. Guests also have the opportunity to visit the wonderful gallery on site, which sells an array of artwork and home accessories.

Comfortable, cosy, peaceful and very clean. Handy for Minsmere and the coast (Southwold, Aldeburgh etc). Friendly and helpful owners. Nice local pubs as well. Would certainly recommend this property for a restful holiday.

Dr W,

Friendly and helpful hosts.

Mrs P,

Ideally situated just off A12 in quiet location.we were met and greeted and then left alone to enjoy this bijou property which had all we needed. Decor very tasteful.Bread, milk, butter coffee and tea welcoming pack. Comfy large bed. Bonus was window looking on to bird feeders on which we counted ten species of birds. Gallery on site was closed whilst we were there. Would have been nice to have a look inside.

Mr B,

We have stayed here twice now and have booked a second stay for this year. The standard is very high in every way. It is in a perfect location for us and in a beautiful setting. A lot of thought has gone into the things provided for the guests to use and the owners Margaret and Terry are lovely people. I would definitely recommend this cottage but in doing so I know I risk it getting booked up….ha ha!!

Mrs S,

A lovely property with a fabulous location for getting around Suffolk. Highly recommended.

Mr P,

Outstanding cottage - very clean, spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated! The super king size bed is comfy and the kitchen well equipped. The outdoor patio area is nice to sit on. The owners, Margaret and Terry, are very friendly and helpful. When the display of the heating did not function Terry fixed it the same day. We also liked the flowers and the food basket on arrival. We can highly recommend this cottage.
