About the Property: This pretty end-of-terrace cottage is part of an imposing 17th century property, which stands on the summit of a hill overlooking the Blyth Valley. It is now hard to believe that the original purpose of these wonderful buildings, set as they are in 14 acres of parkland with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside, once operated as a workhouse.
Approached along an impressive tree lined driveway, Amrose Cottage enjoys its own small garden and access to the large communal grounds that surround the property. The indoor heated pool and gym are just a minute's walk from the cottage and are available to holidaymakers throughout the year.
Exploring: Just a few minutes drive from Suffolk's Heritage coast and set in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Amrose Cottage will appeal to visitors whatever the weather. Located within the spectacular north-east Suffolk countryside, famous for its beautiful landscapes, rugged coastline, charming seaside towns and inland villages, Amrose is set back and secluded from the road, yet offers easy access to the A12.
The idyllic coastal town of Southwold, famous for its Georgian and Victorian architecture, individual shops, traditional pubs and restaurants and fully refurbished pier, is situated just four miles east of Amrose Cottage. The enchanting coastal villages of Walberswick (just 10 minutes' drive), Dunwich, and RSPB Minsmere are all within an easy drive to the southeast. Further south along the coastline lies the town of Aldeburgh, well known for its music and arts festival, sailing and golf, with Snape Maltings, home of the world-famous Aldeburgh Festival and Snape Proms, just 10 minutes' drive inland.
This property is ideal for: Families with young children and teenagers. There is a selection of board games at the property - perfect for rainy days. For those sunny days, sit out in the garden or take a dip in the pool. With attractive walks on your very doorstep, it is also a great base for cyclists and birdwatchers.
Self Catering Eating and Drinking: Just a 10 minute drive away from Amrose is Emmerdale Farm Shop, stocking a good selection of fresh meat as well as fruit and vegetables in a traditional farmer's market style. A variety of home-made frozen meals are also on offer. Head to Southwold just 10 minutes away, a great opportunity to visit the Adnams Cellar and Kitchen as well as a wide variety of independent food shops.
Eating Out: The nearest pubs are The Queen's Head, Blyford (which you can walk to, mostly along the disused canal) and The White Hart, Blythburgh. After a day spent at the beach, Southwold has a delightful array of pubs and restaurants; why not catch a sunset supper at The Boardwalk Restaurant?
