About the property

Cottage in Chelmondiston, Suffolk, England, UK - In An Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 10 Minutes Walk To Riverside Hamlet Of Pin Mill

Elm Cottage is in the heart of the thriving village of Chelmondiston, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just ten minutes walk from the riverside hamlet of Pin Mill. This Victorian semi detached cottage has been fully refurbished recently. The work has been done to a high standard with a big emphasis on energy efficiency. It comfortably sleeps six adults in one double and two twin bedrooms, plus two more on sofa beds. There is a bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs. The main living area includes a new kitchen with granite work surfaces, range cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave. There is a dining table, sofas and armchairs, a TV/DVD, and an eco friendly wood pellet stove. Also downstairs is a cosy sitting room with an open fireplace, and a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. The cottage is at the end of a 50m path from the road so, while being convenient for local shops and services, it is also quiet and safe for small children.

Lovely cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a really nice long weekend at Elm Cottage with 4 friends, plenty of room for us all yet the Cottage had that lovely cozy feeling with the open fire in one lounge and the pellet stove (who we nicknamed Bertha!) in the kitchen/lounge. The Cottage was very well furnished and the extra treats left by Penny were much appreciated. Definitely recommend and might even be back in the spring/summer when the lovely large garden and surrounding countryside and river can be enjoyed more (we did pick a particularly cold weekend!).

We had a fab time, Penny was very helpful and presented the property beautifully. very secluded, yet within easy reach of all amenities. Highly recommend visiting the Butt & Oyster just 10 minutes walk away. Would definitely stay again.

beautiful and very well equipped for the whole family. Lots of books and games for a rainy week.

  • 5 of 5

Very thoughtfully prepared. A welcome of tea, milk, wine muffins and crisps. Very welcome after a long journey. Great selection of toys and games to suit all ages of children should you have a rainy day or a few hours to fill. A real home from home. Plenty of outdoor seating.

The Red Lion at the end of the road serves excellent meals, and the seaside is a short walk away. A lovely holiday location.

Lovely property in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had booked this property because of the location and the proximity to some friends from Australia who were staying in Shotley, however, the cottage offered so much more than just location. The owners had gone out of their way to make us welcome and the chocolate eggs were perfect for the younger guests. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and had everything that you would ever need.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will have some great memories from the weekend.

Fantastic Cottage, Lovely People

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for my husband and his 3 landscaping engineers - thought I'd give them a treat as they normally get booked in to cheap b&bs when they work away. It was a treat as well - I came down and stayed on the last evening. The little village of Chelmondiston is idyllic. Lovely cottage, very nicely decorated with first class appliances and touches. There were two very nice lounges with log fires/burners. The large open kitchen was really nice. All of the bedrooms were spacious and nicely furnished and the power shower in the bathroom downstairs was great. The wifi connection was excellent also. Tim was great to deal with and couldn't do enough for us. We really recommend this place unreservedly and wouldn't hesitate to return again next time we have a job in the greater Ipswich area.
