DescriptionA charming barn-style cottage with a private garden, finished to a very high standard. Great position - just 2 minutes walk from an excellent gastro pub and within a very short drive of the historic riverside market town of Woodbridge.
WOODBRIDGE 3.5 miles (5.5 km), SNAPE 10 miles (16 km), ORFORD 12 miles (19 km), nearest beach 10 miles (16 km)
House style: Completely rebuilt in 2010, Orchard Cottage is a bright, light single storey barn conversion with clean lines, quality furnishings and loads of space. Comfortable and convenient and with lots of charm. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed with comfortable sofa and armchairs, flat screen TV/DVD and freeview; you will be sure of a really comfortable stay whatever the weather. There is a comfortable kitchen/dining room which is modern and well equipped.
Setting: Well away from the road (Orchard Cottage is up from a private drive) the barn has a fenced garden with lawn and shrubs, and patio area with table, chairs and BBQ. The village of Ufford boasts an excellent dining pub, and a spa hotel where you can enjoy anything from a round of golf to a massage.
Eating and Drinking: A well equipped kitchen and a good sized dining table make for easy and comfortable self catering. There is a fantastic selection of local produce shops including a fresh fish shop and excellent greengrocers in Woodbridge just a five minute drive away. Stop off for a cup of coffee and have a look at the Thursday market, with an excellent selection of fruit and veg and a fantastic cheese stall. There is also a farmer's market on the 1st Saturday of every month.
The nearest pub and good eatery, The Ufford Crown, is a few minutes walk away and there is an excellent selection of traditional Suffolk pubs and state of the art restaurants in Woodbridge. If you want to venture a little further, both Orford and Aldeburgh can compete for fine cuisine (particularly fish).
Activities: An excellent choice of golf courses close by, suitable for both the beginner and the expert - the nearest, Ufford Park, about half a mile away has a driving range and health and fitness spa and pool.
This is a great area for cycling and there are many quiet lanes with wonderful views over the meadows, heaths (Sutton and Hollesley) and woodlands (Rendlesham Forest). Woodbridge, an ancient market town, has numerous historic buildings including two mills open to the public, a windmill, where flour is still occasionally milled, and the old tide mill overlooking the Deben river. Make time to walk along the riverside path - quite stunning.
Just a couple of miles from Woodbridge isSutton Hoo, the most famous Saxon burial ground in the country, which overlooks both the river and the Sandlings Heaths, well worth a visit for anyone with the slightest interest in birds. Cross the heaths to the pretty sandy beach at Bawdsey.
No visit to Suffolk is complete without a visit to the lovely seaside town of Aldeburgh - and whilst it might be following the herd (and certainly will include standing in line) you might like the fish and chips there - they are something else!
