Description

A delightful pied a terre style Suffolk holiday cottage hidden down a quiet country lane in the pretty village of Darsham, just 4 miles from the Suffolk coast at Dunwich (often dubbed ?Britain?s Atlantis?). Self cater or eat at the Fox Inn just a few steps down the road.

WESTLETON 1 mile (1.5 km), DUNWICH 4 miles (6 km), ALDEBURGH 10 miles (16 km), SOUTHWOLD 12 miles (19 km)

About the property: This simple but nonetheless gorgeous property is perfect for a couple seeking an idyllic getaway, free from the stresses of everyday life. It has everything you might need for a Suffolk coastal break; a luxury king-sized bed ideal for some rest and recuperation, comfortable chairs in which to relax and a flat screen TV for first-class viewing. A small but well-equipped kitchen area is well-suited for all your self-catering needs, along with the dining area, perfect for cosy nights in over a bottle of wine. Guests can also enjoy the lovely west-facing deck equipped with functional table and chairs, fantastic for coffee and breakfast out in the garden or sun-soaked barbeques in the evening.


The Fox Inn Garden Rooms (there are two separate properties) are ideal for those who want comfort and simplicity in a lovely part of Suffolk just 4 miles from the National Trust coastline at Dunwich and RSPB Minsmere. It?s a perfect base for exploring all of what Suffolk has to offer, with the popular seaside destinations of Dunwich, Aldeburgh and Southwold only a short drive away.


Ideal for: A couple seeking a relaxing getaway near the Suffolk coast. The property is also dog-friendly, so feel free to bring along your canine pal for some seaside fun if he or she is well behaved.


Parking: Off street parking is available for your convenience.


Exploring: The Fox Inn Garden Room is perfectly placed in the heart of the beautiful Suffolk countryside, with easy access to neighbouring towns and villages. The property provides the ideal combination of a quiet country escape with the opportunity to visit the picturesque seaside towns of Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Southwold. Why not try a brewery tour at Adnams, both fun and educational, or a trip to the iconic Southwold pier? You can even let loose your childish side with crabbing, your creativity with pottery-painting and your thirst for adventure with a voyage on a high-speed trip out to sea, all unique to the Suffolk coast.


For more information on the surrounding area, including restaurants, activities and culture, please visit our sites dedicated to Southwold, Aldeburgh and the Suffolk Coast.


Self Catering: The Market towns of Beccles and Halesworth are a short drive away with a variety of independent stores, grocers and butchers. Market day in Halesworth is on a Wednesday and rural Suffolk is littered with farm shops so you won't need to travel far for great local produce. Wangford Farm Shop or Southwold Farmers Market are definitely worth visiting.

Thorpeness has a traditional village shop providing the community and holidaymakers with locally sourced fresh food. The shop stocks all the essentials, as well as a good selection of wine, local cheeses from the deli counter and local fudge from Olga.


Aldeburgh has two Co-op stores with one situated on the High Street. Several shops sell top quality local produce - Lawsons delicatessen is a must as is Aldeburgh Market. Fresh fish, lobsters and crabs can be bought from the sheds on Aldeburgh beach. With an Independent wine shop, butcher and baker, Aldeburgh caters for most needs! Snape Maltings is a few miles away with The Food Hall and Farmers Market.


Eating and Drinking out: Perhaps the most convenient aspect of this holiday home is that the Fox Inn is a mere stroll away; enjoy a traditional hearty Suffolk dinner with a pint of Adnams in hand in a glorious rural setting, surely the best (and only) way to experience Suffolk?s cuisine! After your relaxed dinner, make sure to walk off your meal in the tranquility of the countryside, and bathe in the serenity of this quaint little village.


If you fancy venturing out of Darsham, you will be spoilt for choice: with Dunwich a mere 4 miles away from the property, dine out at the Ship Inn or grab some fish and chips before a walk on the atmospheric beach. With Aldeburgh so close by you also have the wealth of the seaside town?s foodie delights to choose from, with a variety of pubs, restaurants and tearooms. The White Lion Hotel has sea views and a traditional menu, and Prezzo provides a relaxed, friendly atmosphere for all ages. For slightly more formal dining try Regatta or The Lighthouse. However, no trip to Suffolk could be complete without trying the town?s world-class fish and chips: there are two great fish and chip shops in Aldeburgh high street, both with a fantastic reputation... you may have to queue at busy lunchtime periods but it will be well worth the wait.
