Nestled on a quiet lane just off the village centre of Westleton, is the light and airy 19th Century Cottage that is Middle Cottage. This recently refurbished cottage retains much of its charm and characterful features and yet these have been beautifully fused with high quality fixtures and furnishings. The stunning kitchen/diner takes centre stage here with its contemporary design; this lovely space benefits from a view of the beautiful garden with its patio seating area. What’s more, the garden gate opens directly onto Westleton Common!

This beautifully furnished cottage offers both style and charm throughout. On the ground floor there is cosy sitting room with log burning stove and a separate study/snug area ideal as a quiet reading spot. These rooms lead through into the fantastic kitchen/diner which is perfect for bringing the family together to make the most of your self-catering stay. There is also a shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs, you’ll find 4 bedrooms; 2 double rooms and 2 single making this the ideal property for families (sleeping up to 4 guests due to the ground floor space, but one additional small child allowed and please note the single rooms are only suitable for children). The first floor is complete with second shower room.

A holiday in the idyllic village of Westleton and particularly at Middle Cottage, will have you ideally located to enjoy many footpaths on the doorstep. The popular nature reserve at RPSB Minsmere is just a short drive away and if you’re looking to enjoy a day at the coast then Dunwich is under 3 miles away, this self-catering cottage truly is a walkers and bird watchers delight!
