About the property

2 bedroomed cottage ideal for couples or young families. Dogs welcome.

Built circa 1750, these traditional timber framed cottages have been carefully renovated and fitted out to a high standard to offer comfortable accommodation whilst retaining many original features such as oak beams, wattle and daub walls and a bread oven.

Set back from the road, the cottage is centrally heated. On the ground floor the living/dining room has a large open fire, perfect for cosy winter evenings. The well equipped kitchen also has a microwave, freezer and washing machine.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms. The double has views to the front and the twin bedroom view to the back both over open fields. Blackout blinds are fitted at the windows. Also on the first floor is a good size bathroom with bath and walk in shower.

At the back is a small enclosed (with a low fence) garden set out with garden and chairs where you can enjoy the fabulous view over open farmland.

The village has an award winning pub and a good local shop where basic supplies can be bought. Both are within a short walk from the cottages.

The adjoining cottage is also available for holiday lettings.

About Jacqui Bellefonatine

The daughter of a Master baker, I grew up on the Kent coast. I am now a London based cookery writer who loves escaping to the Suffolk countryside. I enjoy gardening and taking long walks on the local beaches.

Jacqui Bellefonatine purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Jacqui Bellefonatine chose Suffolk

We have been holidaying at Hill Cottages Suffolk for over 20 years, we love the slower pace of life, the relaxed atmosphere and the great local produce. When the adjoining cottages to our original cottage came on the market in recent years we decided to buy them so we could share this wonderful holiday location with others.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are situtated in a village just outside the Blyth valley an area of outstanding natural beauty. There offer an ideal location for exploring the Suffolk coastal area so you can explore and find your favourite bit of the Suffolk.

Charming cottage in a beautiful setting

We enjoyed a relaxing week's stay in this lovely cottage. It is set in a peaceful location with stunning views over open countryside. The cottage was warm, cosy and well equipped, within easy reach of beautiful Southwold and surrounding areas.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. View at the back overlooking fields was lovely and front garden charming. Decor bright and in keeping with a cottage of it's age, the beds were comfortable, kitchen well stocked. The welcome cake was delicious and eaten to the last crumb!

The only downside was that the cottage was on the road and not in the village centre, so some traffic noise at times, and no footpath part of the way to walk into the village so that was a pity.

Really peaceful and relaxing overall though. We hope we can make it back again for another visit.

Thank you

Sue and Colin

charming rural cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here to attend a wedding and found the perfect location. Very well equipped and quaint cottage, which met all our needs. Blessed with great weather and we enjoyed wonderful suppers in the garden watching the sun go down.

Plenty to see close at hand and further afield. Great walking country, but equally good for just taking it easy and catching up.

A plus for us was being able to have our (well behaved) dog with us.- this should not put off non dog owners as it is not apparent that dogs have been in residence!

Changeover Day:
Changeover day is usually Friday (especially during the peak summer weeks), however we are flexible and regularly have changeovers on other days. We encourage people to contact us to see what we can do to meet their requirements.

Prices quoted are generally for full week. Please enquire for shorter breaks. Our pricing structure favours longer bookings - the nightly rate reduces the more nights you stay (up to 7 days).

All cancellations must be notified in writing. The owner will endeavour to re-let the cottage. If successful the client will be refunded in full, but if not all monies paid by the client shall be forfeited. We recommend cancellation insurance.

Booking Conditions
Bookings run from 3pm on the day of arrival to 10am on the day of departure. The client is responsible for leaving the accommodation in good order and in the same clean condition as they found it. The client undertakes to pay for any breakages or damage, requiring replacement or repair, and for any extra cleaning costs on departure.

Only those named on the reservation form may use the accommodation. Subletting or assignment is not permitted.

The owners cannot accept any responsibility for loss or damage to client’s baggage or personal effects. We recommend insurance to cover this.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the property let is of the required standard, occasionally breakdowns occur. The client is requested to inform the owner should this happen, so repairs can be initiated promptly.

Wi-Fi access is provided, but serviceability cannot be guaranteed, nor can compatibility with your equipment. The property owner provide this service on the understanding that it will be used exclusively for legal activities.
