  • "Well equipped and very clean property with lovely large gardens (though note that any children would need supervision as not fully fenced off from road)."

    Comfortable beds. Lots to do in the area including places to eat and walks from the front door. Our only gripes would be a lack of towel rail next to the bathroom basin and duvets too high a tog given the cottage was warm upstairs even in April with upstairs radiators turned off, but they are minor compared to all the things that were great.

  • "A wonderfully bright, comfortable and spacious cottage with an amazing and very large garden!"

    The kitchen and dining space can be enjoyed together, and if you enjoy cooking there is everything you need to self cater. We travelled for my mother's 82nd Birthday and my sister's 50th Birthday and the cottage was a perfect retreat for this. The local contacts that work on behalf of the owner are very friendly, and easily contactable. We didn't have contact with the owner, but she was very kind when my mother brushed past a picture which brought the hooks out of the wall and caused the picture to fall. We reported it and it was not a problem for which my elderly mother was hugely relieved, as she had been a little distressed when it happened! Thank you on her behalf from her grateful son! This cottage is highly recommended. We didn't stay in summer, so couldn't make full use of the garden, but I imagine it's a delight in summer!

  • "This was our third visit to Ashtree Cottage."

    We love the space inside and outside and the privacy and the peace and quiet. The Cottage has quality furnishings and is very well equipped. We appreciated the attention to detail such as providing shower gel, shampoo, hand soap and kitchen roll and the wine and nibbles were a bonus. It is in a perfect position for birdwatching with RSPB Minsmere and Dunwich Heath only a short drive away.

  • "We have stayed at Ash Tree Cottage for the past 7 summers and it seems to get better every time we visit."

    The owner has made the cottage feel so welcoming, relaxing and comfortable, with some lovely personal touches such as the wall art, which is why we love it so much. The large garden and outdoor space is fantastic. The cottage is situated in a quiet location, backing onto fields, yet close to all the places of interest in the area. We are always very sad to leave and would once again like to thank the owner for the opportunity to experience Ash Tree Cottage and all it has to offer.

  • "We loved staying here."

    There was so much room inside and out and we appreciated the well equipped kitchen too. Having good quality extras such as hand soap, shower gel and shampoo was a bonus as well as the very welcome bottle of wine and nibbles. The house was well placed for bird watching with Minsmere and Dunwich Heath nearby. We have already booked to go back!

The property

Aldringham 0.7 miles.

Boasting a superb rural setting, Ash Tree Cottage is a picture postcard cottage which sits in beautiful gardens and yet is just a few minutes from the coast.

Ideal for a family or two couples on holiday together, the property is impeccably presented with the owner adding a truly artistic touch and finish to the accommodation.

The spacious sitting room is light and airy and has an attractive woodburning stove creating a welcoming space for guests to gather and enjoy spending time together.

Leading off from here, there is a delightful fully fitted kitchen which is stylish but also practical, offering everything needed to rustle up delicious food for the whole party and there is even an elegant dining area all set up ready for enjoying long, lingering meals together.

The gardens are a real feature of the property and offer loads of space for children to run around while the adults can watch them and pull up a chair on the patio and relax into their holiday.

All that running around will no doubt have tired everyone out so when it’s time for bed, choose from either a king-size or a twin.

Both are charmingly presented and thanks to the tranquil, rural environment offer the opportunity for a truly rejuvenating rest.

The shower room and bathroom are both contemporary in style and gives guests the choice of either a long soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.

Ash Tree Cottage is in the perfect location for exploring the surrounding countryside and lies conveniently between the captivating seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, so it’s well worth packing a picnic and a bucket and spade for.

Head out for the day to attractions such as Framlingham Castle, Sutton Hoo, RSPB Minsmere and Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens.

Towns worth visiting include Leiston, Southwold, Saxmundham and Orford.

If you want to have at some sports, then you’ve come to the right place.

Watersports are available right along the Suffolk coast as well as a number of popular golf courses in Southwold, Halesworth, Thorpeness and Beccles and attractions such as Bewilderwood, Ellough Park Kart Circuit and Go Ape Thetford are also worth a visit.

For a rustic holiday in a rural idyll, Ash Tree Cottage ticks all the boxes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
