About Graham Broadbent

I bought the house as a project a few years back and have completely renovated the house and Little Glebe. It’s in a lovely area, very quiet and unspoiled. Just a few miles from the coast with all you need for a holiday away from it all. I love it here for the same reasons all the people who have stayed do – it is so relaxing!

Graham Broadbent purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Graham Broadbent chose Middleton

Middleton is a lovely peaceful village with a church, primary school & pub. It’s not a through road to anywhere so there’s no traffic noise; just the church bells in the distance and the birds.

There’s a great pub 5 minutes stroll down the road. It’s an Adnams pub as most are round here. The food is great, Nick the landlord will make you feel very welcome, and in winter the fire is heaped up making it lovely and cosy.

The lost town of Dunwich, or what remains is 4 miles away, Southwold & Aldeburgh are 8-10 miles away.

If you like walking then 5 minutes on foot takes you into heathland and on to Dunwich forest. If bird watching is your thing then you’re only 5 minutes from RSPB Minsmere.

Oh, and a farm shop 2 minutes walk away.

What makes this bungalow unique

Little Glebe is cosy, warm and spotlessly clean. After a few years and many guests I have only ever had lovely, positive comments. It’s well equipped and there’s a welcome pack provided consisting of bread, butter, free range eggs, cheese, milk & wine. Lovely soft towels and linen is also provided.

You have you own garden with table & chairs & parasol (Let’s hope you need it!)

Equipment provided includes:


Washing machine & tumble drier


Digital radio with CD & IPod docking station

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have been letting for 6 years now. All lovely comments so far; especially about the cleanliness.

July '13 - "Another lovely stay here - brilliant cottage - love it. Thanks for wine etc! Hope to come back next year"

August '13 - "We had a lovely holiday in Suffolk and our stay in Little Glebe has been 1st class. Thank you Graham"

September '13 - "Little Glebe is fast becoming our second home! We couldn't wish for anything better. Delicious plums from the garden, thanks Graham"

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Little Glebe. Beautifully furnished and the owners have thought of everything. Can certainly recommend it to anyone who likes to feel cosy but also have a lovely garden to sit in and just a short walk to a very good village pub. Middleton is so peaceful with just the sound of birdsong and within a very short distance of Minsmere RSPB, Southwold and Aldeburgh. Fabulous!

little but fully equiped

  • 5 of 5

The annex has everything you might need for your stay. The owners have thought of everything. It was cold and wet weather when we stayed but we were warm and snug in little glebe. The owners next door were extremely friendly and respectfully of our privacy. The area is great for good beaches and quaint market towns.The village pub with lots of character,great landlords and excellent food is the icing on the cake.

Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was clean, cosy and comfy - with everything you could possibly need, including a welcome bottle of wine, cheese and bread!

Unfortunately due to a storm we lost our power - and the owners could not have been more obliging and helpful.

We would definitely recommend - and definitely be returning. Its a little cracker! Thank You for your kindness. xx

5 minute drive to the lost town of Dunwich. Southwold & Aldeburgh are 20 mins drive away. These are lovely unspoiled seaside towns where you can buy fresh fish straight from the boats. There's also a nice beach at Southwold.


Car recommended. 2hrs from London


2mins walk to village shop

10mins drive to supermarket.

RSPB Minsmere 5 mins by car

Great pub, The Bell, in the village serving excellent food - book for weekends. It's only a 5 minute walk through the village.
