The property

This beautifully-presented, semi-detached character cottage is situated in the pretty village of Friston, close to the towns of Saxmundham and Aldeburgh, close to the popular Suffolk Heritage Coast.

This lovely cottage is ideal for a family or couples looking for the peace and quiet of a small village location, but also being within easy reach of the coast.

The property has been sympathetically restored, making it an exceptional cottage with an abundance of character features.

On entering the cottage, you are greeted by the wonderful inglenook fireplace with its woodburning stove, making the sitting room a cosy place to enjoy relaxing, whatever the time of the year.

There is the advantage of an additional snug overlooking the enclosed back garden, which offers the perfect spot for a quiet read.

The good-sized, well-equipped kitchen has access to the back garden and patio area, which is perfect for a morning coffee while planning your day, or an evening barbecue during the summer months.

Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom.

From your doorstep there are numerous walks, and the area is excellent for cycling with bridleways and lanes linking villages and coastal towns.

Just a few minutes' away you can enjoy the Viking Trail, a fantastic single track cycling trail in Tunstall Forest.

There is an excellent village pub a short walk from the property, and the world-famous concert hall at Snape Maltings is close by.

Why not visit the vibrant coastal town of Aldeburgh with its wide selection of shops, eateries, pubs, award-winning fish and chips and excellent independent cinema?

The popular fishing village of Orford is an easy drive, with its magnificent castle enjoying far-reaching views, a variety of pubs and the famous smokehouse.

Alternatively, visit the small seaside town of Thorpeness with its boating lake, numerous golf courses and a river for sailing and kayaking.

This really is a fabulous cottage with a wealth of things to do, whatever the time of the year.
