The Lodges, and indeed Coddenham, are ideally situated for you to make the most of exploring Suffolk. We have numerous walks right on our doorstep, and wildlife galore visiting the property. Coddenham itself boasts the medieval St Mary's Church, Coddenham Food Store which provides fresh bakery, veg, deli, off license, gifts, outreach Post Office and cafe, then there's the Community Sports Hall with its tennis courts, badminton court and bowls green, the Country Club and the Duke's Head Pub. The heritage coast with the towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold are only a 45 minute drive, and Constable country with the towns of Flatford and Dedham are just a 30 minute drive. Don't forget to visit Lavenham and Long Melford, wonderful for an antiques hunt, again only a 30 minute drive.

In fairness to everyone, and to all the wildlife around us, we do not accept pets. If you haven't already visited Coddenham, why not? It really is a great place to base yourself for exploring Suffolk, and choosing to stay in one of our Lodges offers you comfort and privacy with the security of having an owner on site should you need anything. PLEASE NOTE : BOTH LODGES HAVE PRIVATE OFF ROAD PARKING WHICH IS ALMOST ESSENTIAL IN THIS VILLAGE.

                                                              Immaculate chalet. Lovely helpful owner

                                                              Perfect for my 3 day stay for a local course. The chalet was spotless and the owners have thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. Lovely rural outlook as well. The only downside is the internet can be intermittent.

The village pub is shut but Graeme gave us a membership card for visitors use to the Country Club just down the road. Really hope to go back. Loved it. Our best Christmas ever
