From the owner

Minsmere Cottage is a delightfully renovated two bedroom cottage close to RSPB's Minsmere bird reserve. The cottage is located in the picturesque village of Eastbridge. The large garden at the rear of the property has stunning views across the Minsmere marshes. You can watch the Barn Owls and Marsh Harriers as you eat breakfast in the sunny kitchen/diner.

Minsmere cottage caters for up to four people in one double bedroom and a twin. It can be booked with the adjacent Meadow Cottage to accommodate parties of up to eight people. Well behave dogs are welcome.

The cottages have been sensitively restored, retaining their original character but at the same time providing modern day comforts including central heating, an upstairs bathroom, a wetroom downstairs, free WI-FI and satellite TV. The cosy lounge has a log burner - a supply of free logs can be found in the garden shed. The kitchen diner has stunning views across the Minsmere meadows and comes extremely well equipped with an electric fan oven, ceramic hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/drier, dishwasher etc.

Minsmere Cottages is ideal for birdwatchers all year round and is also perfect for families looking for a relaxing summer holiday or a short break. The Suffolk coast and countryside is also ideal for cycling.
