About Nick Coppin
We live in rural Shropshire and enjoy our sojourns in East Suffolk, sailing, rowing, walking and cycling. We also like having the railway station so we can explore further afield without having to resort to the car. We love being able to share our house so that others can enjoy this peaceful corner of England.
Nick Coppin purchased this House in 2011
Why Nick Coppin chose Melton
We love East Anglia with its huge skies, tidal esturies and flocks of waders and wildfowl. We enjoy being able to sail and row on the Deben, cycle around the delightful countryside and walk along the sea wall and beyond. Mole End gives us the opportunity to do all these things.

Mole End is like a 'home from home'. It is warm, comfortable and convenient. An ideal base for all kinds of holidays.

Clean,bright and compact!!
We had a lovely week in Woodbridge! We managed to go carless 2 days, walking left and right along the river, it's a good walk into the town, but nice pubs etc when you get there! Lots of walking and exploring Suffolk coast and country. Moles End was very adequate for the two of us, and well equipped, especially the kitchen, loved the conservatory and garden! Thanks Nick and Sue!
Thank you for your kind comments. You would be very welcome to come again.

A charming little house...
We had a delightful stay in this charming little house. It was ideal for the two of us - compact, well equipped and very comfortable. It was lovely to sit out in the conservatory to have breakfast and to relax after a day out. We loved it.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Mole End. We hope you would like to stay again.
Compact comfortable house.
We stayed at Mole End for a week during the autumn. Although tiny the house is lovely: light-filled and warm with many well-thought-out details such as information on the local area and relevant literature. The kitchen is well equipped and we made some nice meals and ate them in the conservatory. The house is situated in an extremely quiet but friendly estate.
It is a 20 minute walk, mostly along pleasant footpaths, from the centre of Woodbridge. We highly recommend Honey and Harvey cafe for fantastic coffee and cakes. Walking along the river was beautiful and we also enjoyed walking into the local countryside. It was a real pleasure not to have to drive.
The owners were helpful and replied promptly to emails. The spiral staircase would make this house inaccessible to some people. The only other drawback really is that the bed is a very small double and if you are 6' or over your feet might hang over the end!
Thank you for the kind remarks; sorry about the bed but it is a standard 4'6" double bed.
