    However if your intentions are to step out of the front door and pop to local pub, shop or beach, this isn’t the cottage for you. There is a bakery 100m from the cottage and a small general store one mile away. The interior is clean and well decorated in an oldie Suffolk way. To gain access to the first floor you climb steep winding stairs which could prove difficult for guests with mobility issues. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable with the only bathroom off the second bedroom. The bathroom facilities are adequate if a little squashed. The all important WiFi logged on to our apple devices but not our android or kindle devices. All that said and it’s all in the cottage description. we enjoyed the stay and would recommend it as a touring site for those not too bothered about road noise or being in the central location. We can recommend the Queens Head to eat out which is 2 miles away in Bramfield. We can also recommend ‘first night fish and chips’ in Aldeburgh.
