Honeypot Cottage, Falkenham, Nr Felixstowe, Suffolk

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Cottage in Falkenham, Nr. Felixstowe, Suffolk, England - Cosy, Well-equipped Cottage with Original Features and Stunning Views in Peaceful Location

Honeypot Cottage is a self-contained cottage attached to our 17th century Grade 2 listed farmhouse. It is tastefully renovated to a very high standard retaining beams, exposed brickwork and other original features. The cottage is tucked away in the quaint and picturesque village of Falkenham and nearby Kirton. The 1200 acre working mixed farm has cows and sheep and arable land. There are many picturesque walks from the cottage, including one to Felixstowe Ferry, at the mouth of the River Deben with a ferry to the Bawdsey peninsula. Have fun in nearby Felixstowe (4 miles) building sandcastles on the beach, walking the promenade and exploring the Edwardian gardens to shopping in our bustling town centre, eating bird watching at the nature reserve, uncovering history at the magnificent fort and museum and delighting in the peaceful surroundings and stunning views at Felixstowe Ferry, there really is so much to see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Simply the most idyllic place ever for recharging our batteries with just sheep and birdsong for company - wonderful!"



"It is so peaceful and relaxing here. We are losing count of the number of visits but we will now plan the next one. An endearing cosy cottage in a beautiful spot."



"We came from Ireland for our first visit to Honeypot Cottage and take home lots of wonderful memories of your lovely countryside and fantastic cottage. We look forward to coming back again. Thank you."
