Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Situated with an expansive view of the River Wang valley,an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty,where cows graze in summer and that also serves as habitat to many birds as well as a wide variety of other wildlife Garden Cottage occupies a quiet and tranquil position that is ideal for a restful and relaxing break in the Suffolk countryside.
The detached cottage was built in the early 1980's in a distinctive Arts &Crafts style and offers spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to six guests.It has recently undergone a complete program of refurbishment including the addition of an en-suite shower room so that both bedrooms have their own facilities.The spacious kitchen diner opens onto a patio area which in turn leads to a private garden.This feature ensures that it is an excellent place for those with children to stay providing a safe play area where they can be easily supervised while you relax..A twenty five foot sitting room allows ample space whilst inside the property.Electric heating to all areas makes the house cosy and an ideal place whatever the weather is like outside..
Just a five minute walk away the village centre consists of the old A12.This ancient coaching route that originally connected Gt Yarmouth to London is now by passed to form an attractive and pedestrian friendly area with village store,pub and church.Wangford dates back to the eleventh century and much of the main street is comprised of listed buildings that form a picturesque backdrop for a relaxing stroll.
Of course if your tastes extend to wild nightlife Southwold offers a wide range of possibilities with an excellent selection of bars and restaurants.By daytime there are a wide variety of walks around the town,by the old fishing harbour or, crossing the footbridge into the village of Walberswick.
Further afield the market towns of Halesworth (6miles) Beccles (8miles) and Bungay (12 miles) offer many interesting possibilities for shopping,dining or just strolling around looking at the old buildings that proliferate.The fine city of Norwich is
25 miles distant and the old fishing ports of Lowestoft and Gt Yarmouth 10 and 20 miles respectively.To the south the seaside town of Aldeburgh and the nearby Snape Maltings cater for those of a more cultural disposition.
In short,if you are staying at Garden Cottage for a weekend,a few days or a whole week there should be no shortage of things to do.We live on a separate part of the same one acre site as the cottage so if you have any queries or requirements someone is always available to attend to your needs.We are sure that you will enjoy your stay in Suffolk

"Good Location - shame about the Cottage!"
Stayed at the Cottage for a weekend with my teenage daughter and my Mum. We all found the Cottage to be reasonably well equipped and spacious. However, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The… More
Following this review we are taking the following action:
1) Sacking the cleaner for one who is less spider friendly
2) Allowing bookings for a minimum of one week during high season
3) Allowing less flexibility for arrival and departure times
The decor, however, is a personal opinion and we have found that many people prefer neutral colours. It is obvious from the photographs that the cottage is not decorated in a gaudy style which would be more suited to a Spanish villa. The trees are part of the setting and the garden is wildlife friendly and reflects the rural situation rather than a highly manicured style which would be more suitable for a town. Most people do not expect us to be checking up on them all the time and we always make it clear that, if there are problems, we are available at the house, and we also leave mobile phone numbers. There was no smell from the drain either before or after these guests were in residence. Nor did they advise us that there was a problem during their stay.
