Description

A rural setting for an artist's dream, this remarkable, delightful, comfortable cottage is set in four acres of garden close to the coast. With Black Barn (sleeps 2) receiving national media coverage for its fascinating design, comfort and beauty, artist/designer Tony Yates has created a second wonderful self-catering cottage within this idyllic four acre setting.

BECCLES 5.4 miles (8.7 km) SOUTHWOLD 10 miles (16 km) ALDEBURGH 25 miles (40 km) DUNWICH 10.6 miles (16.8 km) MINSMERE 16 miles (25.6 km)

About this property: With the Black Barn (sleeps 2) receiving national media coverage for its fascinating design, comfort and beauty, artist/designer Tony Yates has created a second wonderful self-catering cottage within this idyllic four acre setting. Once a studio and exhibition area, Yates has transformed the Gallery into a superb light and airy holiday cottage. As artist and designer, Yates has created much of the furniture and fittings himself and decorated it with examples of his artwork and sculpture.

Grounds: There is a private courtyard garden with table and chairs directly outside the cottage as well as extensive moated gardens which have been designed as much for the superb wildlife of the area as for the pleasure of holidaymakers. You are more than welcome to explore the woodland area, duck ponds and wildlife areas, or simply sit on one of the grassland benches or relax on a rug with a picnic and let the deer and birds come to you.

Parking: Parking for 2 cars on the drive outside the property.

Sleeps: Four in one double and one twin bedded room, and a travel cot is also available.

This property is ideal for adults and children who will relish the peace of the gardens. When the children want some more lively activity, there is a great play farm, Moo Play Farm, just a mile down the road. Cyclists and walkers will delight in the plethora of byways and footpaths and there is easy access for cyclists with Brampton Station just a short walk or cycle from the cottage.

The Suffolk Coast is immensely varied and The Gallery is just a short drive from Southwold with its world famous pier and sandy beach, fine restaurants and galleries. For a quieter day out, take a trip to Covehithe with its magnificent church within a church, steep cliffs and quiet coastal walks.

Walberswick and Dunwich are different again and birdwatchers will enjoy a visit to RSPB Minsmere and the southern Broads at nearby Beccles and Bungay, where the Harry Potter books are printed. For theatre, music, art and film lovers a trip to The Cut is definitely recommended. An excellent venue for local art exhibitions, concerts, and film showings, The Cut relies heavily on the local community to keep it going.


Self catering, eating and drinking:There are supermarkets and some fantastic local producers at Halesworth, Beccles and Bungay. Fresh fish can be purchased direct from the fishermen at Southwold Harbour.

Eating and drinking out: This is an area with great pubs, fine local beers and superb fish from fish and chips in paper. From Seashell in Halesworth to fish dining at The Crown in Southwold or the Butley Orford Oysterage in Orford, there is sure to be something to satisfy your tastebuds.

Cleones Italian Restaurant, at The Angel, Halesworth, offers authentic Italian food, including delicious homemade pizzas straight from the oven, and generous portions of homemade pasta. All vegetables and meat are sourced locally. The pub also serves a good traditional menu but booking may be necessary to avoid disappointment.

Packing Tips:Bring walking clothes and boots; the cottage has to be the starting point for some of the best walks (long and short) in the county. Bikes can be hired, but if you bring your own you can store them in the garden or one of the owners outhouses. Swim suits and beach towels are a must in summer; you can reach Southwold's sandy beach in 15 - 20 minutes.

For more information about the area go to Visit Southwold or Visit Aldeburgh.
