In addition to the local village shops in Yoxford, (including antique and art galleries) and Peasenhall (home of Emmetts the delicatessen featured in Rick Stien's TV programme), the local market town of Halesworth is only 4 miles away. Outside: There is a private patio with garden furniture and BBQ overlooking a shared garden. Private off road parking spaces. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and Linen are provided for each guest and replenished for stays longer than a week. The cottage is thoroughly cleaned before each guest's arrival and then weekly for stays longer than a week (if requested).

Peaceful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation was exactly as shown in the photos. Shared pathway gives a clear view into gardens/2 cottages opposite but as our stay was out of season we hardly saw anyone. Mistletoe Cottage has a well kept patio and garden to the rear of the cottage is also well maintained. A pretty setting.

Nice touch to have received a bottle of wine upon arrival as well as a carton of milk.

Instructions for maintaining upkeep of cottage were easy to follow.

Fab cottage, perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent 3 nights at Mistletoe Cottage with my husband. It was one of the most beautiful, comfortable, warm, attractive and well-equipped cottages we have ever stayed in. It was in the perfect location for lots of local bird-watching sites, being only a short distance from Minsmere and Dunwich. It might not be the best cottage for people over 6ft tall, but personally I loved this peaceful cottage with it's views over the fields....especially the "loo with a view". Well worth repeated stays and looking forward to visiting again.

Steeped in natural beauty the Heritage Coastal towns of Aldburgh and Southwold are just a 20 minute drive. Slightly closer is the world famous Snape Malting concert hall with its international musical offerings and in particular its annual festival in June.
