Nestling in the grounds of the owners' large Tudor farmhouse (as featured in the publication "The Perfect English Farmhouse" by Ros Byam Shaw) this is a wonderful location to peacefully wile away the hours. Packway Farm Cottages are approached by a long gravel driveway with private parking. They are set in the tiny hamlet of Chediston which is in the heart of the Suffolk countryside just 2 miles from the market town of Halesworth. Minsmere, Dunwich and North Warren Reserves are within easy reach, and the whole area is ideal for walking, cycling, bird watching, golf, horse riding and sailing. There is a secure bicycle shed available to guests. 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. In addition to those mentioned above there are many pretty villages within a short drive. For example, Framlingham with its castle and Thorpness with its boating lake and "house in the clouds". Further, but still an easy drive, are Woodbridge with its Tide Mill, Sutton Hoo burial ground, Stoneham Barn crafts and birds of prey centre, and Beccles and the Norfolk Broads to name but a few. Prices include all utilities, bed linen, towels, Wi-Fi and a start up basket of logs and kindling.
Please be aware there are chickens and ducks in the grounds.
