This is a cosy little 17th century red brick building attached to two small brick barns and a small rambling Regency house. With many lovingly preserved original features, it stands on the road linking the A12 and famous coastal town of Aldeburgh, close to Snape and The Snape Maltings. It’s surrounded by farmland and is next to a stunning private nature reserve which you can walk straight into. The seaside is a seven  minute drive away.

The entrance is through an old cobbled courtyard past the original working water pump. The cosy dining area leads off the small hall with an open winding staircase leading up to the twin bedroom. The romantic master double bedroom is accessed through the twin bedroom.

There is a charming little wooden panelled sitting room with an original bake oven hidden behind one panel next to the working antique cooking range – not needed for cooking on, but lovely to use as a fireplace. The cottage is small and will sleep two adults and two children. The guests are well provided for and this includes a welcome pack containing fresh ingredients for an English breakfast. Also included in the cost of the hire are a first basket of wood and a bucket of coal for the fire. Subsequent fuel is available for purchase.

The bathroom has a shaving point and the bedroom a hairdryer while the living room is supplied with  books and games, maps and brochures, DVD's and CD's. There are also bikes for adults and children. For the younger children a cot and high chair can be used. Even the dog gets a treat (one per dog) and its own water bowl.

Sorry, no cats.
