A peaceful escape set within the midst of a small nature reserve and on the cusp of the River Deben, Hayloft Cottage is a wildlife hotspot with owls, muntjac, water birds, swifts and swallows all making this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty their residence. Get back to nature in this beautiful bolthole and explore all the area has to offer.

This gorgeous retreat is enveloped by a mature woodland, as well as many lovely long walks that take you cross country or along the estuary. In addition to its wonderful location, the cottage itself is an upside-down property with accommodation for up to three guests on the ground floor. Upstairs you will find a light and bright living area where you can relax amongst the tree canopy as you revel in a good novel or just swing open the stable door and listen to the tranquil tweets of birdsong. This truly is the most idyllic setting to enjoy your next Suffolk staycation!

quiet location with easy walk to Deben riverside. Owners helpful.

Mr C,

Great location lovely and peaceful. Really enjoyed the walk through the woods to the river Deben. Owners very helpful but unobtrusive.

Mrs H,

A very good property in an excellent location. We had a very good holiday.

Mr R,

The Hayloft makes a peaceful and cosy retreat, tucked away down a lane but just a lovely, short walk through woods to the river Deben and the Maybush pub. The location was perfect, feeling away from it all but actually very convenient for facilities such as shops and the A12. We liked the upstairs living and dining area looking out over the trees. The owners were helpful but unobtrusive. We'd be happy to book again.

Mr H,

The hayloft was very quiet and tranquil and was a short walk to an absolutely wonderful pub where the food was lovely

Mr S,
