This delightful cottage offers excellent accommodation over the ground floor and is ideally located for exploring Suffolk and South Norfolk; perfect for couples and solo travellers looking for a quiet place to stay but with a superb range of things to do nearby.

Entering the property from the front garden, you step into a porch area, leading into a hall where there is a large built-in cupboard that's ideal for storing walking and cycling gear.

The king-size bedroom offers ample space and storage with views over the front garden, whilst the well-equipped kitchen has access to the back garden.

The sitting room which is of a good-size has a dining area and boasts lovely views over the garden with its beautiful pond, so you can enjoy watching wildlife from your window!

During the summer months, why not relax in the garden and catch some sun or enjoy a coffee while planning your day?

The location offers excellent links to beautiful villages by car, foot or bike, where well-deserved refreshments can be enjoyed at one of the many excellent country pubs and cafes on route.

When you want to explore further afield Bury St Edmunds is just a short drive away.

This fascinating and important market town is a must for visitors with its striking Cathedral and Abbey Gardens surrounded by a combination of medieval architecture and elegant Georgian squares lined with independent and high street shops, cafes and bars.

Make sure you pop to The Nutshell for a drink, it is claimed to be the smallest pub in Britain.
