Interaction with guests
I hope to meet and greet my guests but this won't always be possible. If I'm unavailable to hand over the keys my friend from down the lane will be on hand.
I will always be at the cottage in spirit as we have put together a lot of local information and instructions about the cottage.
We love having visitors to share the benefits of the cottage and its lovely surroundings with.

Management response:

In kitting the cottage out I felt a dishwasher was more helpful than a washing machine, there's plenty of space, outside and in, to hang wet/damp clothing.

About the neighbourhood
Set in beautiful countryside but not far from the coast. The lovely unspoilt Suffolk heritage coast is peppered with charming and characterful seaside towns such as Aldeburgh, Southwold and Walberswick.
Inland there are many delightful villages and foot paths/bridleways for country walks.
Most villages have good pubs and there are a number of outstanding restaurants in both Aldeburgh and Orford.
Music is also a feature of the area with Snape Maltings concert hall close by hosting many internationally renowned orchestras as well as the Aldeburgh Festival and Aldeburgh Proms .
Getting around
It is easier to get around by car, but cycling would be a reasonable alternative.
Car advised
How to get there
Railway: Saxmundham: 5.0 km
The closest stations are Saxmundham and Wickham Market, both about four miles away, so cycling distance. However, most people come by car. From London you would aim for the A 12 which isn't too far from the cottage.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Nearest Beach: 12.0 km.
