Dudley and Liz who are retired and live in Surrey, have a daughter who lives in Woodbridge with her husband with their three sons.

We decided to purchase a cottage close to them as a second home. Because we were not using it enough, we decided to let it for holiday use and visit when there are vacancies!

Dudley & Liz Sloggett purchased this cottage in 2012

Our criteria was for the location to be close to Woodbridge in a sort after quiet location. After extensive searching we found Ivydene, adding an extension and totally renovated the whole cottage to a high standard (Liz is an interior designer). We also required a south facing rear garden with a lawn and car/boat parking.

Ivydene is in an attractive quiet sort after location, very close to the river Deben, with sailing, walks,cycling, fishing and golfing amenities on the doorstep. Close by you can enjoy good food and/or a drink at the Maybush Inn.

FANTASTIC PROPERTY IN A LOVELY LOCATION

Lovely clean home from home cottage. Modernised but very tastefully done with everything you could need. It was perfect for the Easter weekend. It was lovely to go to a nice cottage that also allowed dogs. Can't wait to go again

IVYDENE, A WONDERFUL QUAINT COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely quaint cottage. Big enough for 4 people, the second bedroom has bunk beds and the bathroom is accessed from both bedrooms. The owners have made good use of the space available and there is ample room for a family. The downstairs has been extended to make the kitchen/dining room bigger. The cottage was clean on arrival with a kitchen equipped for all your needs, crockery, glasses, pots and pans etc. All in all a good base to explore Suffolk. The Maybush Inn is literally a stones throw away and does good food including breakfast. Lovely views from the beer garden over the River Deben, it is also visited by the local friendly cat who will come and sit on your lap and have a snooze in the sun. We were only there for 3 days but managed to visit Aldeburgh and Southwold which are both within an hours drive and worth a visit. Downsides? None really, the stairs are a bit steep if you are not good on your legs and if you are used to a power shower the shower over the bath can seem a little lacking. However the owner has told me that he will look at the shower next time he is there so that may be fixed. The stairs are due to the age of the cottage. However if you want power showers and less steep stairs try a Travelodge, but you will be missing out on a really lovely Suffolk cottage that has 1000 times more character than any Travelodge. Would we go back? Of Course. Would we recommend it? Undoubtedly!

Owner's Response: We have a problem! The shower is at the end of the bath with a glass side screen. If the water flow is too powerful the water spills out of the bath onto the floor which then makes the floor slippery and in the passed has damaged the ceiling below. So the flow has now been adjusted to the best possible.

THE MOST WONDERFUL, PERFECT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We have found the most perfect chocolate box cottage.

We absolutely loved it, Ivydene is a wonderful base, perfectly positioned to take advantage of the surrounding areas - which we did each day, followed by a lovely drink at The Maybush in the evening only 2 mins walk and overlooking the river.

The attention to detail in the cottage is wonderful and without doubt the best we have stayed in over many years renting holiday property.

We would recommend the property 100% as well as owners Dudley & Liz who have been wonderfully efficient throughout. and we very much look forward to staying there again.

Perfect.......

Mark, Louise and Lily

SAD TO LEAVE

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed here for the last 4 days and wanted to 'steal' the cottage. Very carefully thought out with everything provided and more. Lovely, lovely cottage. Beautifully appointed and whilst off the beaten track its still very handy for all the lovely places Suffolk has to offer. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home from home.

PEACEFUL VISIT TO WALDRINGFIELD

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Waldringfield but our first visit to Ivydene which was a lovely cosy cottage just right for us. Love this village, friendly pub close by, fantastic walks with our dog by the river, all in all a great relaxing stay. The cottage is well equipped, although shower could be better - kitchen fantastic & furnishings great. Really comfy bed & loads of attention to detail. We will definitely return. Thanks

LOVELY COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage for Easter weekend 2013 and even though it was freezing cold out we had the best time! Ivydene is a lovely and well thought out cottage. It was warm and every little detail was thought of by the owners! Fabulous little touches throughout and we could not fault it all. Aldeburgh is a 'must' to visit while you are there. Lovely beach and shops! Tesco's is very near by and also the biggest Next we have ever been to. Just could not fault our stay. Our lovely dog Ted also enjoyed it! We will be returning!

Waldringfield is a charming village on the south side of the River Deben. It is only 1.5 hours by car from London. Cambridge or Norwich are just an hour away, yet we find ourselves able to enjoy the sense of peace and quiet. Our cottage is just 40 meters from the River Deben and the Maybush Inn right on the waterfront, where you can enjoy excellent food and a drink on the terrace overlooking the river and boating activities.

Along the waterfront there is a very active sailing club and a sandy beach where children can amuse themselves and go swimming, crabbing or fishing. Waldringfield golf club is just up the hill and is open to non-members. Bicycle hire is available locally.

Places to visit in Suffolk.

Woodbridge (15 minutes by car) for the historic Tide Mill, a Windmill and the Shire Hall. It has a thriving shopping centre with a large assortment of shops including antiques, bookshops, museums, galleries and many good restaurants. Also there is a cinema and swimming pool.
