About Ann Spear
My name is Ann Spear and I live next door to Potts Cottage. My daughter, Christina, her husband, James and their three children, Sam, Jack and Madeleine also live on the site in the main house. We also have 2 Labrador x called Lottie and Milo. In 2011 we renovated the barns alongside the main house to provide me with a granny annex and at the same time updated the living area of Potts Cottage and built a new bedroom and shower room.
Ann Spear purchased this Cottage in 1983
Why Ann Spear chose Woodbridge
I bought the house in 1983 as I fell in love with the village of Lower Ufford and it was closer to my children's school and friends than I had previously lived. The house itself is set within a large garden which is where I spend the majority of my time and it is right at the heart of the village but on a no-through road so it is very quiet. The village has a rural and friendly feel to it but at the same time it is close to local towns and amenities.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is well placed for some lovely walks by the sea or rivers or in the local forests and also within reach of many of East Anglia's attractions. The property is close to main roads which makes it easy to access airports and train stations to be able to travel in this country and abroad - a pastime I enjoy immensely. We have two excellent pubs in the village both providing good local food and there are several restaurants in the local towns and surrounding villages which will provide takeaways. I always provide some locally sourced produce for your arrival and there are excellent butchers and farm shops close by to restock. I am always happy to help you with directions, suggestions for places to visit or shop and to make sure that your stay is relaxed and pleasurable.

Enjoyed a relaxing long weekend the cottage was cosy and warm. We will definitely return.
We were very impressed with the cottage, it is clean and well kept. We would also like to thank Ann for the welcome pack of milk coffee, biscuits etc.
A charming cottage in a lovely place.
We enjoyed 4 nights in this tranquil cottage. It is very well equipped and in a peaceful location.There are many interesting places to visit, good food available locally. And we were blessed with fabulous weather!
Ideal. Quiet. Tranquil. High quality.
Perfect, cosy stay!
What a delightful cottage! This was perfect for our overnight stay in Suffolk, located in a small, quiet village away from any hustle and bustle which was just what we needed (plus the dog too!)
This cottage has everything you could need, and is very homely. We could have easily stayed a week and been very comfortable! Ann even let us check out a bit later so we could take our time on Sunday morning :-)
We will be back!
Charming well equipped cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at Potts Cottage, it is well equipped with everything you would need, more than enough cooking utensils and extras like clingfilm and tin foil really help
The wine and biscuits was appreciated
Absolutely no problem with hot water was always on tap!!
Highly recommend the White Lion where the food and company is great
If we had one tiny gripe it would be the tv which is small maybe a slightly larger one would be good
Well equipped in a lovely little village. Pub nearby and close to Woodbridge and the coast.
Very nice little cottage with everything you need. Friendly owner and kindly left a welcome pack. Cottage comes with own designated parking and has a little fully enclosed patio where we could let our dog out. The village has no shops but Woodbridge very close by and has some lovely shops and coffee houses. Two pubs in the village with the White lion right on your doorstep. Found it warm and friendly and food was fine. The other pub is further away and if you walk make sure you take a good torch. Food makes it well worth the effort.
