Cottage in Ufford near Woodbridge, Suffolk, England - Quiet Location, Close To Many Local Attractions
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.

All facilities in the cottage were what you would need for a nice homely break.
Nice property, just a shame about the bed!
Overall this is a very nice property, good location and amenities. My only complaint was the bed as the bedding was covered in hairs. Not just a few! Other than this the property was clean and tidy.,
Amazing beautiful place to stay Will def be back soon

Cosy clean cottage
Delightful little cottage
My husband and I (plus 2 labradoodles) stayed for a week and a half in this delightful little cottage. Perfect size for 2 people and 2 dogs. Thoughtful touches such as 2 torches, dog bowls and poo bags, welcome pack including milk, tea, coffee, bottle of wine, snacks and biscuits were provided. A very well equipped kitchen, great shower and the whole cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Any problems we had eg a bulb went outside the front door were addressed straight away. The cottage is quite remote which suits us but anyone staying there would need a car to get around. We had a lovely time and would have no hesitation in recommending this property. If we travel to this area again, we will definitely look to rent this lovely cottage again. Many thanks Ann for sharing your lovely cottage with us.
Lovely cottage with everything you need. Super host. Great place to stay with our dog.
Beautiful setting in a lovely little village. Great cottage with lots of character and amenities, perfect place to stay with our dog. Made very welcome by the owners. Would definitely like to stay there again for longer to explore the surrounding villages and towns.
