The cottage is one of a pair on a small common by a converted chapel. It's in a tiny village on the Suffolk coast, right next to the RSPB reserve at Minsmere.
The house and garden look out over protected marshland grazed by cattle and home to swans and many other birds.
The cottage is a 30 minute walk across fields from the beach at Minsmere. It is just a short drive from Aldeburgh, Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich. There are some wonderful Adnams pubs close by, including the Eels Foot in Eastbridge itself, which is just a 200 yard walk away. It has great food, a garden and a small children's playground.
The cottage was a second home to us when our children were young, and has a family feel about it. There is a sheltered patio at the back and a garden to the side, overlooking a water meadow straight out of a Constable painting.
Leiston (3 miles away) has all the shops you might need and there are plenty of good restaurants around. There is a wonderful bakers called Smiths, in Leiston, just opposite the cinema... lovely, old-fashioned, white bread.
The cottage has 1 double, 1 twin, and 1 double-bunk bedrooms. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. It is on the ground floor. There is an open plan lounge/diner/kitchen with open fire. A picture window overlooks the garden, and there is a sheltered patio to the rear. The garden looks out across beautiful protected countryside and is not overlooked.
