A pretty Suffolk self-catering cottage in a delightful, rural village close to Halesworth and the coast at Southwold.

HALESWORTH 1.9 miles (3km), SOUTHWOLD 10 miles (17km), MINSMERE 13.5miles (21.7km), WALBERSWICK 11.3miles (18.2km)

"Wissett seems to lull asleep all ambition. Don't you think they have discovered the secret of life?" So said Virginia Woolf after the Bloomsbury artists and aesthetes spent a few months of 1916 in this glorious little Suffolk village; it remains much as it was then. An ideal location for walking, cycling and exploring the magical coastline of north Suffolk, with Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich Heath and RSPB Minsmere all close by. Close to the cottage is a pretty Saxon church of St Andrew's with one of East Anglia's earliest treasured round towers.

Self catering eating and drinking:

Nearby Halesworth has an excellent range of shops, including fishmongers, butcher and greengrocers. There is also a Rainbow Co-op Express, that stays open till late, with a customer car park.

Eating and drinking out:  

Halesworth offers an excellent choice of pubs, restaurants and tearooms including: Cleones Italian Restaurant at The Angel Halesworth. Offering authentic Italian food, including delicious homemade pizzas straight from the oven and generous portions of homemade pasta. All vegetables and meat are sourced locally. Booking necessary to avoid disappointment. The pub also serves a good traditional menu.

If you are a fan of Thai food you must try Singtong Neeyom in Halesworth. Run by a husband and wife team, this friendly restaurant comes highly recommended by locals. The food is to die for and a takeaway service is also available. N.B.: Singtong Neeyom is closed on a Monday so do not get caught out.
