  • "The cottage was dreamy; everything you could wish for with beautiful countrysides surrounding, a log burner for cosy evenings, beautiful decorations inside with all the comforts, and plenty to do in the surrounding area."

    It was perfect for a weekend break to celebrate some birthdays in the family.

  • "Beautiful, cosy house with lovely big garden and views across the fields."

    Lots of thought gone into making us feel at home - including lovely books and toys for the kids.

  • "The cottage is a great place to base yourself for exploring the local beautiful Suffolk countryside."

    It is a renovated, period building with lovely views and a warm wood fire that makes for cosy evenings. It gives you the opportunity to experience country living in England first hand.

  • "We had a brilliant stay in this lovely house."

    It is characterful, warm and comfortable with beautiful views from every window. The garden is fantastic and our children loved it. There are lots of great games and books for children too. We didn't want to leave and hope to come back soon. Really highly recommend. Rachel

About the location


Snape 5.5 miles; Aldeburgh 9 miles; Southwold 15 miles;

Saxmundham is a small market town located on the River Fromus, in the heart of Suffolk’s Heritage Coast. The town is well serviced with independent shops, local museum, supermarkets and a train station, as well as art galleries, a weekly market and a farmers’ market. Situated so close to the coast, Saxmundham is a great base for a seaside holiday; within easy reach of Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, as well as Dunwich, Southwold and Walberswick, you could enjoy a different coastal location each day. Also close by is the inland market town Framlingham with beautiful historic architecture, a castle and an array of independent shops. South of the town there is the well known tourist destination of Sutton Hoo, an ancient Royal Anglo-Saxon burial site. With Ipswich an easy drive south, and Norwich an easy drive north, there’s so much to see and do in and around Saxmundham.
