About the property: This delightful terraced cottage offers spacious accommodation for up to three people over two floors. From the light and airy bespoke kitchen a door leads through to the equally bright sitting room, with a door into the south-facing garden where there is a BBQ, an outside table and bench seat, and also two big comfy outdoor chairs. On the first floor there is a lovely double bedroom, cosy single bedroom, and a beautiful modern bathroom.
Sleeps: Three in one double and one single bedroom.
This property is ideal for: A couple or a small family. At Honeypot Cottage you're perfectly placed to enjoy all that lovely Woodbridge has to offer - beautiful river walks, independent shopping in the Thoroughfare, historical buildings - and all just a short walk to train and bus stations, perfect for those without a car wanting to venture further afield.
Minimum hire: Three nights, except in high season, when minimum booking is usually a week. Changeover day in high season is a Friday. Outside of high season you can start your break any day of the week you like.
Also: One well-behaved dog is accepted.
Self-catering eating and drinking: Woodbridge is a bit of a haven for foodies - just a few doors down you've got The Bakehouse Bakery, round the corner the Green Olive Deli, then Cook (top quality frozen food). There's also an old fashioned sweet shop, a butcher, fishmonger, greengrocer, another excellent bakery, farmer's market (2nd and 4th Saturday of every month, held in the community hall behind the Deben swimming pool), regular weekly market (Thursday mornings, in the Hamblin Road car park) and two small supermarkets (Budgens and Co-op) with good selections of local produce.
If you need some good wine or beer to go with your good food you've got Woodbridge Wines on the Thoroughfare and the Adnams shop (who also do some excellent treats and nibbles) near the train station.
Eating out: Where to begin? You really are spoilt for choice. Woodbridge boasts far more good eateries than a town of its size really should. Good pubs include The Anchor, The Kings Head and The Angel(NB if you like a G&T The Angel is a must-visit, stocking over 220 gins with a variety of tonics, along with a fabulous selection of other spirits, real ales and lagers). Nearby The Old Mariner serves tapas, while Ye Olde Bell and Steelyard does a great Sunday roast.
Restaurants range from family-friendly dining at Prezzo (Italian) and the East Coast Diner (posh hotdogs, pizzas and cocktails), to the more 'grown-up' venues ofThe Table, The Galley, The Riverside (one-stop date-night restaurant and cinema) and The Crown. If you like a curry there is a choice of three good Indian restaurants within a short walk of Honeypot Cottage at Charisma, the Shaplaand the Royal Bengal, and for Chinese food you have the Golden Panda.
You've also got a lovely selection of cafes and coffee shops for light lunches and snacks - Wild Strawberry Cafe, Honey & Harvey, The Firestation, The Tea Hut, The Pavilion, Mrs Pipers Tea Shop, Georgian Coffee House... all this and more within easy walking distance of Honeypot Cottage!
Entertainment: Flatscreen TV with DVD player and Freesat... alternatively, take a 10-minute stroll to The Riverside Cinema, Theatre and Restaurant. If you like live music, The Angel hold regular live music nights (usually on a Monday), as does The Old Mariner, and you can often catch an impromptu folk session at The Anchor.
Locally: Visit Sutton Hoo - home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time, now under the watchful eye of the National Trust. Less than 10 minutes by car, or a pleasant (though not particularly short) walk, mainly along the river.
Head to the coast - Aldeburgh for fish and chips, Southwold and Felixstowe for arcades and piers, Shingle Street for a walk on the wild side, Orford for nature and military history.
Eat - yes, more good food! The Greyhound at Pettistree, The Ufford Crown, The Ramsholt Arms(a must for a summer evening drink watching the sun set over the river)... the list goes on.

Very comfortable cottage in an excellent location
Excellent location, everything you need within easy reach. Cottage was very cosy and quiet, due to the excellent double glazing.
