Set down a winding track, Valley Farm Cottage offers a picturesque self-catering retreat for six. If you’re looking for a spot in the Suffolk countryside yet with amenities close by then you may have just found your next Suffolk getaway in Valley Farm Cottage; this abode is situated in the popular village of Melton which sits just one mile from the vibrant riverside town of Woodbridge.

A large kitchen diner is at the heart of this home, making it a super sociable open plan space to enjoy! Swing the patio doors open in the summer and you can enjoy some alfresco dining on the decked veranda. Space isn’t compromised elsewhere in the property either, with not one but two sitting rooms. One is ideal for adults and offers a sophisticated space for relaxing in the evenings, the other is a snug style room which is ideal for children – everything has been thought of with the room being equipped with TV, PlayStation and games, board games and puzzles all being readily available with children in mind.

Offering ease and flexibility for your party, Valley Farm Cottage has one ground floor bedroom and two first floor bedrooms. This deceptively spacious cottage is ideal for families, couples and friends. With two rooms hosting zip and link beds it means they can be configured as either a twin or a super-king size bed – just let us know what you need for your stay and we’ll get it sorted. The third bedroom houses a king size bed so you can get a good night’s sleep ready for days exploring this beautiful part of Suffolk. This wonderful self-catering accommodation comes complete with ample parking and its own garden too.

A stay here will have you perfectly positioned to enjoy the popular and historic town of Woodbridge and strolls along the banks of the River Deben.

What we love about this property? This idyllic holiday cottage will have you feeling like you can truly rest and recharge away from everyday life. It is sheltered away in a pretty location and yet there’s so much to enjoy within walking distance.

Just at the top of Melton Hill, lies Woodbridge, a historic town of great character situated on the River Deben. Its charm lies in the many narrow, picturesque streets of fine houses and cottages, the river, a popular marina, the busy boatyards, the famous Tide Mill, the ancient buildings around the Market Hill and the fine Church. Woodbridge has an interesting pedestrianised high street, with many specialist shops, good restaurants and pubs, together with art galleries, antique shops, a town museum, an excellent cinema/theatre, large recreation areas and an indoor heated swimming pool and leisure centre.

A short drive away is Rendlesham Forest with its UFO centre, The Suffolk Punch Trust and Suffolk Horse Society, Shingle Street (arguably the best place to watch a sunrise) and Framlingham – the home of Ed Sheeran and his beloved ‘Castle on the Hill’.
