  • "We had a wonderful stay, such a privilege to stay in such an historic property with so much interesting history to learn about and explore."

    Every window had a magical view. We absolutely loved the garden and beautiful views a across the fields and also enjoyed the playground in Dalinghoo. We slept very well in the beds and relaxed in the silent surroundings. The showers were hot and powerful. Overall we had a wonderful stay.

  • "We were looking for 2 houses close together suitable for teenagers, older people and dogs."

    Robins Nest and The Carpenters Shop next door met all our needs and it was a privilege to stay in such a beautiful cottage dating back to 1541. We were worried that it might be too remote but Wickham Market and Woodbridge were a short drive and Woodbridge in particular had a wonderful selection of quality produce including Cromer crab, fresh samphire and excellent meat, veg and fruit. We enjoyed Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh and there were plenty of dog walks in the area. Robert was quick to respond to a minor boiler issue at Wheelwrights and has plans to update the bathrooms (although they were perfectly practical). He was also happy to share the history of this lovely cottage. We were very lucky with dry weather in an unusually wet July elsewhere in the country and could enjoy the garden and rural landscape views.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in the cottage but it appeared a bit tired inside."

    There were cobwebs everywhere and the bedding really needs to be renewed. The door from lounge needs fixing as it is very difficult to open and to close ( fire exit?) The fire in lounge needs an ash box and instructions where to dispose of ash. Lovely area and the complex ideal for family gatherings.

Woodbridge 4.6 miles.

Settled into the quaint village of Dallinghoo, near Woodbridge, The Cottage is an ideal rural base for your Suffolk adventure.

Park off road and make yourself at home in this beautiful thatched pink cottage, putting your feet up beside the open fire and enjoying the charming wooden beams spreading through the walls and ceilings throughout the property, as well as countryside themed ornaments and a large selection of books found in the study, ideal for anyone who needs to work during their stay.

Ornate plates and paintings punctuate a wonderful kitchen where ample amenities make cooking up a storm a delight, and there is a dining table for guests to enjoy together, as well as the option of a separate dining room for more formal evenings, plus a delightful conservatory room with a view to the farmers’ fields beyond.

A shower room can be found on the ground floor, and there is a second bathroom upstairs as well as three bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, each bursting with character.

Outside, a beautiful garden offers a spot for breakfast in the sunshine whilst your four-legged companion relaxes in the shade of the mature trees.

The quaint village of Dallinghoo rests in a rural location with picturesque farmland and countryside walks.

When you fancy lunch at a cafe, or need to stock up on essentials, head over to the town of Woodbridge where you can also walk beside the river or visit the Tide Museum.

Castles and more cafes can be found in the historic village of Framlingham, or you can travel a little further to visit the coast at Aldeburgh, ideal for seaside walks and enjoying a glass of your favourite beverage alongside a heart-warming meal in one of the many eateries.
