End of a row of pretty cottages in the village of Bramfield, 7 miles from the sea at Southwold. Child and baby friendly, with a good-sized, secure private garden.

HALESWORTH 3 miles (5 km) SOUTHWOLD 10 miles (19 km) WALBERSWICK 7 miles (11 km) DUNWICH 7 miles (11 km)

Grounds: Holly Meadow Cottage is a semi detached cottage set back from the road. Full of quirky charm, this inviting cottage retains many of its original features including exposed wooden beams. The long living area is divided into two sections; a cosy sitting area complete with open fire and armchairs and a dining area with TV. So cosy in winter, relax with a glass of wine and a book in front of the fire. In summer, enjoy the garden, complete with patio area and chairs, perfect for sunbathing after days spent exploring.

This property is ideal for: A couple or small family wanting to enjoy and explore all that Suffolk has to offer. Enjoy the best of both worlds; countryside surrounds the property yet it is only a short drive from the historic coast. With plenty of walks around, this is the perfect place for dog owners.

Packing tips: Beachwear and walking boots. Bikes can be hired at Suffolk Cycle Hire in Rendlesham. Pack your golfing shoes as there is an 18 hole and a 9 hole pay and play golf course 1.5 miles up the road in Halesworth. Binoculars, of course, for RSPB Minsmere. Also the house is close to North Manor Equestrian Centre which offers riding lessons and hacking, but do book in advance. 

Bramfield is a compact and attractive village surrounded by open countryside, rich pasture land on one side and Sandlings common on the other, running towards the coast at Southwold. Gorse and heather create a perfect habitat for a number of rare ground nesting birds, colourful butterflies and excellent grazing for deer. Just a few miles from Dunwich, Minsmere, Walberswick and Southwold, this is an area of wide skies and breath-taking landscapes. Walkers, cyclists and bird watchers will be in their element.

There are various boat trips available both in the Blyth Estuary and from Southwold Harbour. Theatre lovers should check out The New Cut Arts Centre in Halesworth, where there is a year round programme of entertainment. Read more about Bramfield here

Eating and Drinking: The Queen's Head, a great Adnams pub well known for its excellent food, is just a mile from the property. Just a little further on is Halesworth, an attractive old market town. The Cut does great lunch time snacks and pre-performance meals, and there are several excellent organic food shops as well as a large supermarket. The Angel at the top of Thoroughfare has an Italian restaurant. If you are looking for really fresh seafood then wander down to Southwold Harbour, where you can buy a great selection of wet fish or go to the fish restaurant for some lovely shell fish. The Harbour Inn does super fish and chips. The Anchor at Walberswick is also excellent and a really dog friendly pub.
