About Ann Spear

My name is Ann Spear and I live next door to Potts Cottage. My daughter, Christina, her husband, James and their three children, Sam, Jack and Madeleine also live on the site in the main house. We also have 2 Labrador x called Lottie and Milo.

In 2011 we renovated the barns alongside the main house to provide me with a granny annex and at the same time updated the living area of Potts Cottage and built a new bedroom and shower room.

Ann Spear purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Ann Spear chose Suffolk

I bought the house in 1983 as I fell in love with the village of Lower Ufford and it was closer to my children's school and friends than I had previously lived. The house itself is set within a large garden which is where I spend the majority of my time and it is right at the heart of the village but on a no-through road so it is very quiet.

The village has a rural and friendly feel to it but at the same time it is close to local towns and amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is well placed for some lovely walks by the sea or rivers or in the local forests and also within reach of many of East Anglia's attractions.

The property is close to main roads which makes it easy to access airports and train stations to be able to travel in this country and abroad - a pastime I enjoy immensely.

We have two excellent pubs in the village both providing good local food and there are several restaurants in the local towns and surrounding villages which will provide takeaways.

I always provide some locally sourced produce for your arrival and there are excellent butchers and farm shops close by to restock. I am always happy to help you with directions, suggestions for places to visit or shop and to make sure that your stay is relaxed and pleasurable.

Lovely quiet cottage in small country village

  • 5 of 5

Clean comfortable cottage in very peaceful location. The cottage was well equipped, parking directly outside. Two pubs in the village, we only got to one of them (The Crown Ufford - food excellent - make sure you book). No shops in village so make sure you bring everything you need.

Plenty of interesting walks in the area.

We recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in a beautiful village and to a wonderful cottage. It had all we required and was clean and efficiently set up. Although tucked away, which was perfect for a peaceful break, it wasn't too far from the local towns, such as Woodbridge, Aldebrugh and Saxmundham. We thoroughly recommend Potts cottage. Thank you for a much-needed post Christmas break.

Excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas period to enable us to visit our daughter and family without needing to sleep on a sofa bed! The cottage facilities were excellent and we enjoyed the fizz and chocolates the owner kindly provided. Would definitely recommend and will probably stay there again.
