    It's also within easy reach of Grundisburgh with it's village shop and Woodbridge with a great variety of shop's, pub's, cafe's and the 'Tide Mill'. It's also within half an hour of the seaside at Aldeburgh - a very interesting and picturesque place to visit.

    Thank you for bringing to our attention about spoons have already sorted it.Sorry for wifi problems had no problems before all we can think off is the very bad weather the week you stayed. Grundisburgh had floods for the first time in history. Property Owner

  • "A quiet location despite the student cars taking the lane as a shortcut to Otley college."

    Not seen the night sky as clear as that for a long time. The tabletop freezer was sufficient for our self-catering needs. Everything was easy to use but the original manuals were available if needed. Grundisburgh church with its many angels in its roof beams is well worth a visit as is the coffee shop in the village. The post office shop had everything for daily needs. The local roads were easy driving although windy like almost every road in Suffolk.

    Tho we now live in Norfolk, we are originally from Suffolk and lived there for many years. I actually went to school in the Village of Grundisburgh where the Cottage is situated. The owners who we got chatting with, are lovely people. Friendly, helpful and kind. We were lucky with the weather as it was warm and sunny every day but one........on the only day it rained the owners brought round dvd's for the children and also gave us eggs from their chickens. The accommodation is very much home from home.......comfortable and cosy........we loved the peace and quiet of the large garden. We very much appreciated the little welcoming touches of Cake, Biscuits and a bottle of Wine. We would definitely like to return and have told the Owners that. They are very warm, welcoming people.

    I particularly like how you make it so easy on your website to filter out the 'dog friendly' properties as I have acute health issues that are triggered by prolonged exposure to animal fur/dander. Keep up the good work and stress to your property owning clients that if their accommodation is advertised as 'no pets' it must always be so for the sake of my comfort and others like me. Keep up the good work and we will keep returning to you!

The property

Grundisburgh 1.5 miles.

This beautifully-presented, semi-detached character cottage is attached to the owner's home and is situated just outside the picturesque village of Grundisburgh, close to the market town Woodbridge.

This wonderful cottage benefits from far-reaching rural views and an extensive garden, perfect for a family or a couple looking for the peace and quiet in a rural location but within easy reach of the wonderful Suffolk heritage coast and numerous beautiful towns and villages.

From the private parking and garden area you step straight in to the well-equipped kitchen which leads in to the open plan living area.

Here you will instantly relax with the cottage feel and wonderful woodburner nestled in the impressive brick surround.

Sit back after a day out exploring and enjoy the warmth of the fire while enjoying an evening meal together or relaxing with a movie.

Upstairs, there are two single bedrooms and a double bedroom, and the family bathroom is on the ground floor.

From your delightful cottage travel to the village of Grundisburgh which has a village shop and a popular, vibrant pub serving local ales and excellent food.

The cottage serves as a perfect base for exploring Suffolk with Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Snape, Orford and Framlingham all within half an hour in the car.

A little further afield brings you to the likes of Southwold and historic Lavenham, all of which are well worth a visit.

The area offers excellent road cycling along quiet and famously flat roads which link villages and numerous pubs and cafes on route.

Golfers are spoilt for choice with a range of wonderful golf courses close by, and there are a number of riding stables where you could go out on a hack or even just take a lesson.

This really is a fabulous cottage with a range of things to do nearby, whatever the time of the year, and you will want to return again and again.
