This really is a picture book cottage in the utterly charming village of Peasenhall. A Tudor build, Rosecot is in an ideal location for exploring the Suffolk coast and countryside being close to Framlingham and within easy reach of the seaside towns of Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Southwold.

SOUTHWOLD 13 miles (21 km), DUNWICH 9.5 miles (15 km), ALDEBURGH 12 miles (19 km) 

About the Property: Set back from the main street, Rosecot is one of a row of traditional Suffolk cottages overlooking the village stream, known locally as the river Yox. Fronted by a private lane there is also off-street parking in the drive. The exposed wooden beams throughout (some are quite low) fill this property with character and charm, a standout feature for most who visit.

The garden too, is a place to relax and unwind, sit out in the summer with a book and enjoy some peace and quiet. On cold winter nights, sit inside with the log burning stove, enjoying a glass of wine and a game of cards after days spent exploring the Suffolk coast.

There is a deep hip bath at the property; h 38", w 45", d 28". There is a stool for access but it is not suitable for those with limited mobility. 

Exploring: Peasenhall is an attractive Suffolk village with local shop and post office, a nationally renowned deli, Emmett's, and a very good tea shop, Weavers. There are some extremely attractive buildings in the village including a range of timber-framed buildings and a late medieval hall-house, which was in use as an inn by 1478 - a fairly new invention at that date.

At Yoxford there are further excellent shops as well as a restaurant and pub. The pretty village of Westleton is close by, as is the lost city of Dunwich, now a tiny village with a fantastic museum and shingle beach. Both Southwold and Aldeburgh are within a 20 minutes drive.

Framlingham (a 15-minute drive) is an absolute must, with its fine 12th century castle, restaurants and pubs, shops and market. Give yourself plenty of time to explore this delightful town. 

This Property is ideal for: A couple or small family wanting the best of both coast and countryside. The cosy feel to the cottage will give you a relaxing Suffolk experience - so quaint. 

Self Catering: Most well known supermarkets will deliver to Rosecot, but most supplies can be picked up from the village of Peasenhall itself. More shops can be found at nearby Saxmundham, Framlingham and of course, Aldeburgh.

Eating and Drinking Out: The nearest pub within walking distance of Rosecot is the Sibton White Horse. Serving a good selection of home cooked food, you can wander home feeling satisfyingly full. A short drive away is The White Horse, Rendham, a much loved old-fashioned pub serving a selection of traditional English cuisine.
