Perks for the Parents

This beautiful Georgian cottage, 10 minutes from Southwold, sleeps up to 6 and is a short drive from beaches and market towns near the Suffolk coast. It is a lovely family house, with a fully-equipped kitchen and family-sized dining area plus plenty of areas to sit and relax. Filled with books, paintings and furnishings to make it feel like a real home rather than a rental, it has a simple but luxurious feel. There is a large walk in shower as well as a freestanding bath tub, so bathing is a luxury and comfort. If you like to paint, there is an airy garden studio with skylight windows and view of the garden. It is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Suffolk area and beaches, with Covehithe beach a 5-minute drive away and Southwold only 10 minutes away.

Why Kids Love it

There is plenty of space to play, plus a handful of board games and children’s books. There is a big garden and a summer shed to play in. The house is not far from 2 big beaches, Covehithe and Southwold beach. If you have bicycles, it is less than a 10-minute cycle to the local beach Covehithe. The house is suitable for all ages, although the staircase is steep and old, so very young toddlers may need extra supervision. Nearby activities to seek out include Southwold’s boating pond, the pebbly beaches nearby, fish and chip shops, Thorpeness Meare, and walks around the coast. There are cinemas in Lowestoft and a handful of other towns for rainy days. Note that no high chair or crib is provided; guests can bring their own.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights, with 7 nights prefered during school holidays. Rates are indicative and discounts are available on mid-week and weekly rentals. Please confirm final price with host before booking. Note that the stair cases are old and steep, but they are closed off at ground level with 2 doors; as this was 2 cottages, there are 2 sets of stairs. The garden is newly landscaped, so the owners are not accepting dogs until June 2017, when the plants will have established themselves. Parking is free and easy and the house has its own designated parking space. All the windows at the front of the house are double glazed.

About the Location

The residence is in the village of Wrentham in Suffolk, 10 minutes’ drive from the popular seaside town of Southwold, 5 minutes from Covehithe beach and within 20 minutes of the market towns of Beccles and Halesworth. It is 15 minutes’ drive from Darsham train station and 10 minutes’ drive from Lowestoft train station; it is very useful to have a car to explore Suffolk at large. The village is around 2.5 hours drive from London. There is a convenience store for all the basics 3 doors away and there are pubs walking distance away.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom property is formed from 2 Grade 2-listed Georgian cottages that have been joined together. Downstairs there is a dining room and kitchen, living room and library, plus a relaxing garden room and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and a large room with 2 single beds. There is a separate shower room and bathroom, both with their own WC. The 100-foot garden has an large airy artist shed and summer house, plus parking for 2 cars.

Style Notes

Georgian splendour. This Georgian cottage has traditional beam ceilings and a simple yet stylish interior packed with beautiful design details. Owned by an interior stylist, the house is light-filled and atmospheric. There is a 2-sided wood burning stove between the library and living room, and a newly-landscaped garden designed by award-winning RHS landscaper Laura Arison. We love the rolltop bath, the scrubbed pine dining table and the charming rustic details.

we discovered this rambling atmospheric Spanish home 20 years ago and have brought all our 3 children here every year - they see it as their second home. suffolk is a new discovery and the atmospheric georgian cottages have been renovated to provide a comfortable stylish space to explore an unspoilt beautiful coastline.

Suffolk, England

Pebble beaches, waterways and culture

This rural county to the east of London is a treasured secret among locals. Just two hours by train or car from the city, it’s a complete break from hectic schedules and busy lives. Reconnect with nature, blackberry picking, kayaking waterways or cycling along country lanes; play on pebbly beaches and shop pretty cobbled towns and independent stores. Before you think it’s all a bit too 1950s, Suffolk is bang up to date with its cultural offerings, especially Latitude, the much-lauded festival of words, music, theatre and comedy. It’s pretty good for kids too.
