About the property
- Cottage1291 sq. ft.
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 nights
Remote, idyllic spot to escape from the city. Ideal for a family or a group of friends who enjoy nature, walking, birdwatching or cycling.
The Blue Parrot is spacious, bright and homely. You have a big living room with views of the River, a dining area, a big front garden just next to the riverfront, and a smaller back garden, which looks onto Bawdsey Manor.
You can enjoy walks on the beach, or follow one of the many walking trails that start near the house. (Please see photo attached). Bawdsey Manor is an amazing building that you can see from the beach or from the back garden of the house. Woodbrigde is 12 miles away and is a nice, charming town, where you can enjoy going to a restaurant or a cafe, or do some shopping.
Please note that you will need a car to move around easily, or you can just relax, go for walks in the countryside or cycle. :) There is a village shop and friendly pub in Alderton, 3 miles from the house. It might be a good idea to bring your own supplies depending on how long you are intending to stay. If during your stay you feel like going into town, Woodbridge is a great option; it has a full range of amenities and is 12 miles (a 20-minute drive) away. From April to October you can also cross over to Felixstowe by a passenger ferry. (see photo attached for timetable)

The Blue Parrot has been the holiday home for Tim's family in the last 15 years. We always lived in Yorkshire, but often came here to spend the weekends or some weeks in the summer, enjoying the good weather and the sea. We still come from time to time, now all the kids have grown up and the grandchildren can enjoy the house, but we like the idea of having other families and groups of friends to stay when we are not around.

What makes this Cottage unique
The best thing about the Blue Parrot is escaping the everyday routine, being away from the noise, the traffic, work... and just spend a few days going for walks, birdwatching or playing some boardgames by the fire.

Excellent property and fully equipped - and heating was first class which was good as weather cold
Perfect location to explore the very peaceful Sandlings area and superb views of river estuary. Owners were very helpful and supportive - a really perfect holiday.
It was a pleasure to host Mel and his friends, communication was easy and they were really flexible. You are welcome back any time.
Fantastic long week, comfortable and warm house, excellent away-from-it-all location
We had a great time, the house was warm and cosy, modern kitchen, plenty of space for the 6 of us and the view from the lounge was amazing. Excellent for walks along the coast, visiting local attractions or just peering out at the boats on the river. Definitely quiet and peaceful. Made an ideal half term break, would consider coming again.
