Why Margaret B chose Suffolk

Red House cottage has so much character with original brick floors, open fires, beams and Suffolk latch doors. We have given it a new kitchen and bathroom and converted the original "pony shed" into an annexe with en suite shower room.

Its ideal for a family holiday, close to the village shop and friendly historic pub serving good food and Adnams ale.

What makes this house unique

The stunning views from the conservatory and garden single the cottage out. Walks to Walberswick along the estuary with pub lunches. The area is steeped in history with medieval churches and archaeological interests. There are typical English seaside towns, RSPB Minsmere for bird lovers and so much to do if you like to walk and cycle.

Fantastic property in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Red House Cottage is a beautiful property and it is situated in Blythburgh which is within walking distance of Walberswick and Southwold Harbour. There is a lovely pub (White Hart Inn) literally a couple of houses away which does great food and a little village store which provided lovely sandwiches for a picnic. The cottage itself is really welcoming with beautiful interiors and all the amenities you would need. I would thoroughly recommend this property and we will definitely be coming back!

A memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, with everything you need and you feel so at home. Beautiful views of the countryside. The pub next door does great food and we visited a couple of times during our stay. Margaret, the owner, was really helpful and ensured that our stay was perfect, brilliant customer service. Visited the local tourist spots and took advantage of chilling out at Red House Cottage. Definitely recommend and will return soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the lovely review - I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree it is quite hard to capture the beauty of the estuary view from the conservatory and garden where you can feel part of the landscape. Thanks again and I hope you can return.

Idealic Holiday Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic time staying at Red House Cottage, returning home relaxed, happy and with lovely memories. A well-equipped cottage with everything you need supplied for self-catering. Beautiful home-from-home accommodation and the views of the meadow and estuary are stunning. We visited the White Hart Inn a few times as its just a few steps away! The four of us had a great dinner there to celebrate a birthday, with extensive food and wine menus. We visited Southwold which is only about 10 minutes drive away. Margaret, thank you so much for allowing us to stay with our pet dog - we all had a memorable time and will definitely return.
