Open-plan living room with pine windows, stripped floor, long dining table, and a compact but well-equipped kitchen.

Outside there is a grassed area for children to play football and short tennis and a small private garden, just yours, with outdoor seating and tables and a large gas barbecue. For evenings and rainy days there is a large games room in the nearby barn with table tennis, table football and a 6ft snooker/pool table. No pets allowed.

About Fay Sutton

I have recently moved from South London with my family to seek some peace and quiet. I now live next to the cottage in a lovely old Grade 2 listed farm house. I have two small children, aged 9 and 11. I work in London 3 days a week as a IT Manager for the City of London. I love walking, swimming and cycling.

Fay Sutton purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Fay Sutton chose Suffolk

The cottage is blissfully quiet with no traffic noise. In the early morning the drive and vineyard is alive with wild rabbits and at dusk look out for the barn owl swooping low over the paddock. The local area is surrounded by quiet country lanes, footpaths and bridleways ideal for walking and cycling. The area is known for excellent local produce which can be purchased in many farm shops and consumed in numerous friendly and welcoming pubs.

What makes this cottage unique

Timeless and quintessential English seaside resort of Southwold is just 20 minutes away, for boating, beach huts and pier. Slightly further afield is Aldeburgh (famous for Benjamin Britain and its arts festivals), crabbing and smokies at Walberswick and the lost town of Dunwich.

The small town of Halesworth with its local shops and supermarket is a short drive away. To the north are the market towns of Bungay and Beccles. From both of these, day boats can be hired for a day relaxing and exploring the Norfolk Broads. Further north (40 mins drive) is the regional centre of Norwich with its market, shopping and castle.

Lovely rural location

  • 5 of 5

Great property for all ages, and levels of mobility. Our age groups ranged from early forties to mid eighties, and everyone had a great time. Warm comfortable, nice quiet location and the games room was a great place to escape to for a beer and a laugh.

Would come again.

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 friends rented Fay's beautiful cottage for a weekend in September. It was absolutely wonderful and I can't fault it. The cottage is incredibly peaceful surrounded by vineyards and has a big gas BBQ and dining areas both inside and outside. We had some lovely brunches in the sunshine!

Fay was a brilliant host and even left us milk and tea and coffee for our arrival. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Lovely cottage with lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was lovely and roomy with a playbarn for everyone to enjoy. It's next to a vineyard and surrounded by countryside making it a very quiet and peaceful place to be. Our three grandchildren enjoyed the freedom of playing outside within shouting distance of the cottage. They also enjoyed going bunny watching on an evening whilst also looking for other wildlife. Inside the cottage was big enough for us to put a changing table up for our disabled son as well as a specialist chair. The kitchen was well stocked and it was lovely having done most of the washing overnight and hanging it out in the morning to be dry by evening, (hardly any washing to do when we got home :) ) As I love bees, it was a joy to watch them in and out of the flowers in the garden and also I was able to photograph them quite close up too.

All in all a fantastic week of great weather, lovely accommodation and plenty to keep the children and teenagers entertained and happy!!
