Nestled on the outskirts of the gorgeous Suffolk village of Yoxford, Canfield Cottage oozes calm and tranquility. Once the part time home of an artist, it is decorated with a homely, inviting style, from the gorgeous paintings and illustrations from artist family members and friends, to the familiar lily leaf William Morris wallpaper in the bathroom. With rolling fields to the rear and a colourful, ever-changing cottage garden to the front, you too could be inspired to pick up the paintbrush or hone your photography skills. 

About the property: A perfect hideaway for 2 or 3, you are within walking distance of some fantastic local amenities. If you're looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life - you can relax in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, without being a million miles from the outside world. 

The views of the rolling fields from the kitchen and second bedroom are truly breathtaking; open the windows and listen to the birds singing in the trees. Even if the weather is not agreeable, there is still plenty to do within the cottage. The owner has provided a selection of CDs, DVDs, books and games for you to enjoy by the gas fire. 

Sleeps: 3 in two bedrooms, 1 with double bed and 1 with single bed. 

Parking: There is off street parking for one car. An additional parking space can be arranged at time of booking if required. 

This property is ideal for: A couple or small family looking to explore the countryside. There are plenty of walks around the surrounding fields that you can explore - these are seemingly endless and do give you a real taste of the stunning Suffolk scenery. Equally, you may wish to bring your bikes - the roads are relatively flat; you can store your bikes in the outdoor shed. 

Yoxford itself is a charming village, with three antique centres, a church and plenty of cafes and restaurants. We would really recommend a visit to Yoxford Antique Centre, deceptively large and with a lovely cafe - perfect if you love quirky interiors or browsing items from yesteryear. Better still it is less than 5 minutes up the road from Canfield Cottage!

Of course, a stay in Yoxford would not be complete without a visit to RSPB Minsmere - complete with fantastic walks and viewing points and the recent home of BBC's Springwatch. You're closest beach will be Dunwich, just a 15 minute drive away - the beach is usually quiet, perfect for anyone seeking peace and solitude. If you fancy going to the popular seaside towns of Aldeburgh, Southwold or Thorpeness, these destinations can be reached in a 20 minute drive.

Self-catering eating and drinking: The village of Yoxford is fortunate enough to have its own village shop selling basic supplies including newspapers, milk, fruit and veg. There is a real sense of community in the village - you can often purchase locally grown produce from residents' front gardens. Just over 5 minutes by car will take you to the equally pretty village of Peasenhall, with its renowned Emmett's Store and Smokehouse - a super deli and cafe. In the opposite direction you will reach Darsham - we recommend stopping off at the nursery to pick up some local goodies. 

Eating and drinking out: You need not travel far to find somewhere to eat - Yoxford is packed with plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs all serving a good choice of quality produce. We recommend a visit to the award winning G and T's cafe, Satis House and The Kings Head to name but a few. If you fancy a drive, you may wish to try The Westleton Crown, where Prince William and Kate spent their first night of married life together.

Pretty garden and lovely view at the back. Secure for the dogs and a nice walk from the cottage. Good location and good pubs around. Very useful to have a shop in the village

Mrs Marietta O,

Situated in an excellent location,very spacious and airy cottage which suited our needs ideally, a very friendly village with good local facilities and close to a number of interesting places to visit.

Mr Peter B,

A pleasant dog friendly cottage to stay in with a nice atmosphere and good value. The proximity to the road is not a factor as the front is double glazed. Nice footpath walks to the rear.
