A charming grade 2 listed country cottage, its garden edge lapped by the River Deben, Mole End Cottage conjures up idyllic lazy days by the river. Beamed and with a lovely log burning stove, the cottage has a really cosy feel with a spacious double bedroom and a single (off the double bedroom) upstairs. A more peaceful spot would be hard to find. With kingfishers spotted from time to time by the riverbank, as well as glimpses of otters in the freshwater, holidaymakers can also look forward to exploring the lovely walks from the cottage around the lanes to the Water Mill and to the pub at Easton. You really won't have to venture far from your holiday home.
At the bottom of the garden runs the upper reaches of the freashwater Deben river- you can even make use of a small rowing boat on prior arrangement. The river can be navigated upstream as far as Abbey Farm Bridge (about 1/4 of a mile) and downstream as far as Letheringham Mill. This alluring and tranquil location will inspire poets, writers and artists. You will be truly surrounded by wildlife - a great way to see some of the gems of Suffolk. For a truly relaxing holiday in the Suffolk countryside, look no further. Pub: 1.3 miles, Shop: 3 miles.

Letheringham is a small village in the very heart of the Suffolk countryside. Ideally located close to the A12, it is an ideal base for exploring nearby Framlingham, Wickham Market, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Snape and more! Narrow lanes weave through open farmland; this is classic rural Suffolk. Walking or cycling are great ways to explore the picturesque local villages of Easton, Wickham Market and Kettleburgh. The neighbouring estate of Easton Farm Park was built in the late 1800's and has retained the original, now listed, farm buildings. There are 'Green Trails' across the water meadows, home to kingfishers, otters, water voles and herons, though most of the activities are designed for families with younger children.
