This is a beautiful semi-detached cottage, surrounded by fields, that has been in my family for over 50 years. It is simple (no TV, broadband, microwave) but it has everything you need for a quiet getaway or holiday surrounded by nature. The lane is incredibly quiet with very little passing traffic but it is about 10 minutes drive to Ipswich and the coastal areas of Suffolk are close by (Felixtowe 20 minutes, Orford, Walberswick, Thorpeness, Southwold, Aldeburgh are about 40 minutes). It is a perfect place to take young children. The garden is large and almost entirely laid to grass. A path in front of the cottage leads to a church that dates from Norman times (now closed). A stream down the lane is perfect for a game of Pooh sticks, buzzards overhead.
Places of interest nearby include Hadleigh (lovely market village with the world-famous Partridges ironmongers), Lavenham (medieval village), Dedham (heart of Constable country) and Ipswich if you are after some retail therapy, cinema, theatre, indoor pool and so on. There are numerous, incredibly picturesque villages nearby. There is a horse-riding stable with horses and ponies for all ages and abilities a 10-minute walk away. There is a local pub in the village with a restaurant specialising in gluten-free meals.
There is a kitchen with pantry next door, a sitting-room with dining-table and radio/CD player, a main bedroom with king-size bed and a bathroom and twin bedroom. It is perfect for four people but there is also a sofa-bed in the sitting room for an occasional visitor. It has recently been renovated.
There is an incredible amount to do in the area whether your interests are in nature, sailing, historic houses, vineyards, beach or simply peace and quiet.
