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 Melton
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.

Our second visit and it's still perfect!
This was our second visit to Potts Cottage, following a short break last year. It's still perfect! Clean, attractive, well appointed and very cosy. The area is so peaceful and surrounded by beautiful cottages and charming countryside. Nice welcome pack provided, as well as cleaning products, lovely fluffy towels and nice bedding. Dog friendly, without question. Great situation - we explored some new areas this time, including Shingle Street, Bawdsey Ferry and Waldringfield. The Deben Estuary is wonderful and less than half an hour away. There are lovely walks and a great pub in the village of Ufford itself too and Woodbridge, Southwold and Aldborough are all easy to get to. We can't fault this little gem and will definitely return.
Many thanks for a wonderful review...not only about the cottage, but also the local area.
A perfect cottage made for two!
We have recently returned from a lovely week staying at Potts Cottage which was made even better but the most wonderful weather!! The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped set in lovely, quiet, country surroundings and perfectly placed for visiting all the various nearby attractions, coast etc. We went to the White Lion pub in the village (just a short walk from the cottage) and were greeted with a very warm welcome, lovely food and great beers!! Thank you Ann for making Potts Cottage so comfortable - I am sure we’ll be back as there is so much more to see and do in the lovely county of Suffolk!!
A nice quiet location and lovely cottage for two
a perfect holiday hideaway
One of the best equipped holiday homes we have rented in an idyllic location. Roomy for a couple plus dog. The attached enclosed ground is a safe but small area. However there are many excellent well signed and maintained footpaths on the doorstep. A short drive from fascinating landmarks (Sutton Hoo, Orford, Aldeburgh).
