The East Anglia / Suffolk region
Nestled in the valley of the River Ore, Willow Cottage and the Chalets provide an idyllic base from which you can explore the Heritage Coast or simply relax in the warm micro climate created by the valley; walk the local landscape where fields and hedgerows are neatly maintained by local farmers or enjoy the wildlife and myriad of birds that have made the trees and gardens their home.
