Description

The ultimate romantic retreat… this charming single storey cottage is stylish and comfortable with rural views. Escape to a Suffolk hideaway!

A beautiful self catering holiday home near Woodbridge with cottage style interiors, private garden, parking and wonderful walking trails and paths on the doorstep. Gardener’s Cottage ticks all the boxes for a rural idyll. Set in a lovely garden with seating area and barbeque, trees, plants and 30+ species of birds including woodpeckers, owls, buzzards, kestrel and sparrow hawks, yellowhammers, cuckoos and treecreepers to name but a few. This is a wildlife lovers haven with deer and hares spotted too! Gardener's Cottage is at the top of a hill on the site of an old windmill with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside towards St Mary's Church and Great Bealings. This charming single storey cottage has a delightful sitting room with wood burning stove for the cooler evenings, perfect for just relaxing with a coffee over breakfast or with a pre-dinner aperitif.
