About MR Josef Wondrak
Initially the cottage was purchased in 2002, but needed total refurbishment.....which was ideal for Josef as his business is interior design/soft furnishings. This career bought him to England over 25 years ago. During the next few years the kitchen was extended, large conservatory added and major work and planting in the garden!! Going home , back to Hertfordshire became more and more difficult, and in 2007 a permanent move to a village near the cottage was made.... Definitely no regrets. First bookings at the Follies were taken in 2008, and now many of our guests return regularly to enjoy the unique setting and relaxation the cottage and Suffolk gives.

Peaceful and idyllic location
Beautifully clean and well equipped, everything we needed. Very comfortable and quiet. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your lovely comments. Hope to see you again soon
A very well kept, clean property in a delightfully quiet location.
Had a very pleasant stay in a great part of the country. The cottage is conveniently located for visiting many of the main local sights by car but also has many great walks from the front door. All in all a very good stay in a peaceful location, I would gladly return.
This cottage was just perfect with everything and more provided, plenty of crockery, cutlery, bedding etc etc. It is secluded with lovely walks direct from the cottage, was very cosy and much bigger than we expected. We stayed for Christmas week and the owners provided so much including some Christmas trees to make it festive for us. We felt at home straight away and will definitely be returning for another 'perfect' stay. Many thanks.
Home from home
Our fifth visit to this wonderful Cottage. The Cottage is always clean and well equipped. The welcome from Josef and Wendy is always keenly anticipated. We enjoy the peace and quiet of the secluded location and the accessibility to Aldeburgh and Thorpeness beaches and amenities i.e. the local restaurants .The wildlife seen from the Cottage is varied especially in the early mornings. We would not hesitate to rebook this Cottage, in fact we have already done so! We would highly recommend this property and its relaxing garden.
A lovely getaway!
My children, husband and I had a lovely stay at Two The Follies cottage this springtime. The owners, Josef and Wendy, were very welcoming and went out of their way to help us when we needed it. The setting is very peaceful, with short walks straight from the cottage - we saw deer twice - once a small herd galloping through the woods - amazing. The coast is a 5 minute drive, all amenities are within easy driving distance, it is an excellent base from which to explore. The cottage is lovely, clean and comfortable. We would happily stay again.
Fantastic, clean, beautiful, peacefull
I would highly recommend this beautiful cottage. It is tucked away in a quiet wood with only a couple of neighbours on either side. Fantastic walking direct from the cottage.
The cottage is immaculately clean, spacious, with plenty of storage for clothes and food. The kitchen is well equipped and the sofas are really comfy too.
My family and I have had a wonderful holiday. This is a great base to explore Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Orford, Dunwich, Snape and Southwold. There a fabulous walks, Benjamin Britten's house The Red House, beaches and gorgeous restaurants and pubs.
I'm sure we will be back.
