About the property

Woodpecker

These purpose built Suffolk Lodge holiday homes are set within 4 acres of private grounds within the medieval village of Coddenham. The Lodges have their own entrance and private off road parking area with paved footpaths leading to a decking ramp for the front door or continuing to the paved patio area for alfresco dining.

The Lodges have an open plan lounge and kitchen/dining area, which over look the paddock towards the village, with a spacious double bedroom and shower room. The lounge offers a sofa, freeview flat screen television that is PC compatible, DVD player, docking station . The kitchen benefits from having an oven with built in grill, 4 ring hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, built in fridge with freezer compartment, crockery, cutlery and all utensils.

Each Lodge has a paved patio, accessed through French windows, with table and chairs for you to enjoy the outdoors and lovely views along with a grassed garden area.

All linen and towels are provided.

The Lodges, and indeed Coddenham, are ideally situated for you to make the most of exploring Suffolk. We have numerous walks right on our doorstep, and wildlife galore visiting the property. Coddenham itself boasts the medieval St Mary's Church, Coddenham Food Store which provides fresh bakery, veg, deli, off license, gifts, outreach Post Office and cafe, then there's the Community Sports Hall with its tennis courts, badminton court and bowls green, the Country Club and the Duke's Head Pub. The heritage coast with the towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold are only a 45 minute drive, and Constable country with the towns of Flatford and Dedham are just a 30 minute drive. Don't forget to visit Lavenham and Long Melford, wonderful for an antiques hunt, again only a 30 minute drive.

In fairness to everyone, and to all the wildlife around us, we do not accept pets. If you haven't already visited Coddenham, why not? It really is a great place to base yourself for exploring Suffolk, and choosing to stay in one of our Lodges offers you comfort and privacy with the security of having an owner on site should you need anything. PLEASE NOTE : BOTH LODGES HAVE PRIVATE OFF ROAD PARKING WHICH IS ALMOST ESSENTIAL IN THIS VILLAGE.

About Grahame

Each Lodge is highly insulated and fully heated, so whether your wish to stay cool in summer or warm in winter the Lodges are the place to stay.

Living on site means we are here should you need us, but will not intrude on your privacy, and that the preparation, cleanliness and decoration will always be kept on top of to ensure that your stay should be an extra special one.

Why Grahame chose Suffolk

Squirrel and Woodpecker are set within the 4 acre grounds of Broom Hill House in Coddenham. Being off the High Street the location offers peace and privacy, as well as valuable off road parking, while still being within the village to enjoy all its amenities.

Fantastic location and fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Squirrel Lodge is the perfect place from which to explore Suffolk. It is in a beautiful location, is peaceful but is easily accessible, being just 15 minutes from Ipswich. The property itself is stunning - everything you need for a break away has been thought of. It is extremely comfortable and cosy, with high quality fixtures and fixtures. Grahame, the owner, is very welcoming and friendly. We love it and can't wait to return!

Quality accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped, clean cosy lodge. Good location for touring the area, but a shame the local pub has closed so no where local for a meal or a drink. Although the lodge was well equipped a hairdryer would have been useful and a small welcome pack with a few basics would have been helpful as the local store was closed when we arrived.. Lovely area, good value accommodation well worth a visit

Very well equipped cottage and perfect location for day trips in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire.

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome from the owner (Grahame) who gave us some tips about things to do and visit !

The lodge we stayed in, 'Squirrel', was spotlessly clean, modern and extremely well equipped. The location of the cottage itself is quiet, peaceful and absolutely beautiful. The location of Coddenham is very good for day trips into Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire. It is within short driving distances of major towns and cities as Ipswich, Cambridge, Needham Market, Stowmarket and Norwich with easy access to supermarkets for provisions (Stowmarket - Tesco Super Store and ASDA XL - Ipswich). Also a few pubs/inn's in the area with very good food and drinks. (The Rampant Horse - Needham Market and Sorrel Horse Inn - Barnham)

Thanks for a lovely week, we would definitely recommend !!!
