A pathway from the private parking area at this lovely property leads up to the front door - two steps on to the decking take you up to this beautiful space. Step inside and discover more... 

This truly captivating space has been transformed into a stylish yet wonderfully practical holiday retreat. A white interior is off-set by the ultra trendy navy kitchen, whilst accents of colour add a Scandinavian cum Industrial style. Each piece has been lovingly hand-selected after careful research, whilst also keeping the holidaymaker in mind. The open plan living area is the ultimate social space whatever your age. Come and cook up a storm in the kitchen with all the utensils you could need.  Friends or family can watch on from the dining area whilst playing a board game, or can merely cuddle up in front of the Smart TV or watch for wildlife out of the french doors to the rear. Frequent wildlife sightings include owls, deer, buzzards and woodpeckers - a fitting tribute to the name of this lovely lodge. 

If the living area has caught your attention, you'll be even more persuaded with the bedrooms. Thanks to clever planning, Woodpecker Lodge benefits from two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with each bedroom having its' own wall mounted TV. A twin room and king room await down the hall, with the option of a long bath or steamy shower beckoning you after days spent exploring the area. 

Woodpecker Lodge is located on the outskirts of the village of Stradbroke and there is certainly plenty to enjoy and discover. Stradbroke has its very own swimming pool, gym, library and three tennis courts, as well as a children's playground. You'll also find a doctors surgery, two pubs and a coffee shop in amongst a small supermarket, butchers and bakery. Keen walkers will love exploring the endless footpaths in the immediate area, some of which are a stone's throw from Woodpecker Lodge. Those wishing to venture further, will love a visit to Eye - a charming market town packed full of character. The market town of Diss is a 9 mile drive away, which provides transport links to and from London Liverpool Street. If the seaside is calling, you can reach Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh by car; just 20 miles and 22 miles respectively. Another must to visit during your stay at Woodpecker Lodge is the beautiful and ancient market town of Framlingham; explore the history of this town with a trip to Framlingham castle, just 9 miles away!

Lovely, very comfortable cottage, the best we've stayed in. It has everything you need and made a great holiday for us. Great location to visit all of Suffolk, especially Southwold, Aldeburgh, Debenham, Lavenham (must see place!), Dunwich Heath (National Trust) and Orford Ness. Old Felixstowe is worth a visit, along with the sea front and the drive to Shotley Gate is worthwhile to see the container ships being unloaded across the River Orwell. Thank you for a lovely stay Claire and Mark.

Neil and J,

We've had another great week in your lovely lodge. Thank you for the welcome bag and your ladies eggs they were gorgeous. Hope to see you again.

Julie & S,

Great accommodation in a peaceful setting where lots of wildlife can be seen. Places to visit including the coast are easy to reach from the property.

Mrs H,

Excellent lodge in peaceful setting. The recommended eateries were spot on - try the Fox & Goose at Fressingfield for quality dining but for a really good meal in a relaxed atmosphere we recommend the Dennington Queen. Definitely provides a relaxing break in a comfortable setting. Woodpecker Lodge is lovely, clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Thank you

Mr C,

Really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely cosy lodge, well equipped and very peaceful. We celebrated my mums 70th Birthday whilst we were here, thank you so much for the bottle of wine, so thoughtful. We would love to stay again in the future.

Perfect 3 night stay. Lovely peaceful location. Everything in the Lodge was high quality, it was extremely clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. The outside area was perfect for relaxing and eating outside. One of the nicest properties we've stayed at, and can't wait to return.

“The minute we arrived at Woodpecker Lodge we felt so relaxed and inspired. Such a treat of place, with everything you could possibly need so generously provided. Freshly laid eggs, bubbles and so much more to welcome us in. The location is just lovely, with a wonderfully relaxing view and walks from the doorstep. Our family loved every second we spent there and we already can’t wait to return.”
