About the property
Just a hop, skip and jump away from the idyllic villages of Ufford and Lower Ufford. A spacious detached colonial style house sits back from the quiet lane and has the benefit of a ground floor bedroom and en-suite shower room.
Two very spacious first floor bedrooms overlook the secluded garden complete with wildlife pond. Parents with small children please be aware of this.
There are few more attractive villages than Lower Ufford, which is situated sleepily on the banks of the river Deben, the village pub or church making a fantastic starting point for a good old ramble of the area.
Woodbridge town centre is just over 3 miles away and is popular with holiday makers for its pretty streets, ancient history and close proximity to the river Deben; the footpath along the meandering river is beautiful.
Meadow Lodge sits comfortably in its own grounds with a sweeping gravel drive circling the house. To the rear is a long expanse of grass and herbaceous borders. At the end of the garden is a very natural widlife area complete with pond. Meadow Lodge offers contemporary accommodation for 6 people in a very quiet and picturesque location but within a pleasant walking distance of two good pubs.
3 nights except in high season when it is a week.
Smoking is not permitted.
Eating and drinking
The Ufford Crownis a ten minute walk from Meadow Lodge and provides an excellent menu for lunch and dinner. A popular choice with locals and holiday makers, you have the option of dining in the bar or formal restaurant, both of which have a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
With its idyllic meadowside setting it would be hard to find a more appealing pub thanThe White Lionin Lower Ufford. Serving homemade, locally sourced food and real ales straight from the cask, you are sure to have a jolly time at The White Lion.
The quaint country town of Wickham Market is a stones throw away and offers a baker, butchers, beauty salon, fabric shop, Chinese restaurant, a fantastic antiques shop and a large Co-op. It is an idyllic little town and during the summer we recommend sitting outside in the Cafe 46 where you can lazily watch the world go by whilst sipping freshly ground coffee or enjoying a snack from their menu which uses the best locally sourced ingredients.
TheWoodbridge Farmers Marketis held every second and fourth Saturday of the month; a great place to stock up on locally-sourced produce. A regular fruit and veg market is also held in Woodbridge every Thursday, and there are plenty of good farm shops a short drive away, such as The Farm Cafe and Food Market , which is situated in Marlesford en route to the coastal town of Aldeburgh.

We had a lovely time at Meadow Lodge. The garden was great for the family including our dog. We very much enjoyed the surrounding area, I particularly liked Woodbridge. The people in the town were extremely friendly to all of the family including our dog.Mr Ian Aulton - 15th August 2017
I would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at 89 Pump StreetÂ - it is a pretty and cosy cottage with a real suntrap courtyard garden at the back plus it is so well equipped with everything you could need. Â We would love to return one day. Orford was a new location for us and being within walking distance to such wonderful places to eat and drink at, plus Orford Castle and the quayside etc, was just the icing on the cake.A previous customer - 12th April 2016
Tasteful, comfortable, and in a good location.Angela H, Essex - 12th August 2015
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Meadow Lodge and only wish it could have been for longer, An ideal 'cottage' for our combination of two young girls, their parents and (us) grandparents, helped by magnificent food at the Ufford Crown and (albeit a bit cold on the first day) excellent weather. Our thanks to you and the owner.Mr G, East Yorks - 30th May 2013
What a lovely cottage - a real home from home in a fantastic position in the middle of the village too! We have really enjoyed our stay at No.89... Orford and its surroundings has so much to offer, good food, great scenery and friendly people. We are sorry to be leaving.S & B - 28th May 2013
