Three charming holiday cottages with many period features. Two 2-bedroomed single-storey cottages, and a 1-bedroomed two-storey cottage on the same site. Book whichever one best suits you, or book more than one cottage if holidaying with friends/family. Each of the cottages are fully equipped for a comfortable stay, and Rated 4-Star by Visit Britain. Saxmundham is an ideal base for exploring the unspoilt Suffolk countryside and coastline and the many attractions of East Anglia. You will be within 30 mins drive of Southwold, Halesworth, Woodbridge, RSPB Minsmere, National Trust Dunwich Heath (AoNB), the English Heritage castles at Orford and Framlingham, and much more... It is the perfect place for a relaxing break - at any time of year. Just 4 miles from Snape, and 8 miles (15 mins drive) from the popular seaside town of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Ideal location for walkers, bird-watching, golfing holidays. Only 90 mins from London by train - making it perfect for short breaks too. Just 500 yards from shops, pubs, cafes, and award-winning restaurants. Small, well-behaved dogs made very welcome (at no extra charge).
We love Suffolk! And we want you to come and enjoy it here too.
Our aim is to provide a comfortable and homely place for you to stay whilst you enjoy all that the beautiful and unspoilt Suffolk Heritage Coastal Region has to offer.
Many previous guests have described our self-catering holiday cottages as a real 'home from home' - so we've adopted that as our motto!
Several guests have even asked if they can buy the cottage they were staying in! But, they are not for sale. They are here to enjoy while you holiday in Suffolk.
Saxmundham is such a great location - it's an ideal holiday base. With such good transport links, within a half an hours drive (or less) you can get to all the popular places to visit.
There are good local bus services too. And the train station (Lowestoft to London-Liverpool St Line) is a few minutes walk away. (But don't worry - there is no train noise at the cottages!)
We love the peace and quiet. The friendliness of the people. The wide open spaces. The unspoilt nature of the countryside, coast and heathland... and the local, seasonal food.
The cottages are just 5 mins walk from the town's High Street, so very convenient for an evening meal out... or just to pick up a newspaper in the morning.
The supermarkets are open 7 days a week, until late in the evening. And, there are lots of independent little shops to browse around too.
