Very well appointed cottage, especially the kitchen. Clean, and a friendly welcome from Helen. Comfortable furniture inside and out. Walking distance to Sutton Hoo, and easy travelling to Southwold, Aldeburgh, and Orford. Also try Bawdsey Ferry, and for a wet day try Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich - Tudor, with Constable and others art on display - and its free !
Downside, if you are tall and follicly challenged, beware of being cooked by the lights in the kitchen. Also there is a bit of road noise.
Lovely place to stay.
Ideally situated with Sutton Hoo on the doorstep and within easy driving distance to the Suffolk coastline. We wanted somewhere near Woodbridge and Ipswich to enable us to meet with friends and visit the coast and local attractions and this cottage met our needs superbly. The owner was very welcoming and we had a brilliant 3 night stay.
We stayed here last weekend after booking last minute, and I am so pleased we did. Idea location for Woodbridge with the coast at Aldborough only 20 minutes away. 2 great size bedrooms with very well appointed bathrooms. The day bed is in the open plan main living area, not dining room as stated. However the twin room was made up as a super king, which left plenty of room for us to put the pull out bed from under the day bed in the room for our daughter.
Having the play equipment outside was a real bonus for our 5 year old, and the bottle of wine in the fridge was a lovely welcome. We would definitely recommend it and will be booking again.
We stopped for a week at Shearer's Cottage which is on the road leading to Sutton Hoo. It is a bright, airy cottage with beautifully appointed double bedrooms, both en suite, one with a bath. There is a through lounge with kitchen and cloakroom off it. This is the first year of trading. The cottage was rather closer to the road than we had hoped It is built in the garden of the farmhouse and we thought that it would be further away from traffic noise than it was. Overnight it was reasonably quiet, but sitting outside there was the constant noise of traffic. Otherwise, little to complain about, apart from too small a fridge. It was tiny for 2 of us, it would have been impossible with a family. Plenty of cooking implements and enough crockery for 6, though if there are 6 of you, it would mean 2 people sleeping in the lounge on the full-sized put-u-up.
We very much enjoyed the area - and being less than an hour and a half from home meant not too much travel. Woodbridge is within 2 miles and has plenty of shops plus the river, so plenty to do.
All in all, a good holiday rental
