Situated on the outskirts of the popular Suffolk river-side village of Waldringfield sits Little Oakland. This single storey, detached self catering cottage is situated just behind the owners house and is next door to a lovely meadow. With views of the beautifully maintained shared garden this homely abode is just waiting to welcome two - four holidaymakers to the Suffolk countryside.
About the Property: This self contained holiday property has all the basics you could need for your next Suffolk adventure. The open plan living area has a kitchen, sitting and dining area making it perfect for relaxing in after a day spent walking along the riverside. The SKY package and WiFi connection mean that even if the weather is not entirely agreeable, you can still catch up on your favourite programmes or book a table at one of the fantastic local eateries.
There are two bedrooms at Little Oakland. The first is a bunk room, which is perfect for small children or teenagers as the beds are full sized. Further along is the master bedroom with double bed. It comes complete with lovely views of the garden and its' own TV. Both rooms feel very homely, and we can assure you that you'll be tempted to jump in after a long days travelling.
Ideal for: A couple or small family looking to explore the surrounding Suffolk coast and countryside. The village of Waldringfield has plenty of walks to explore, particularly along the river. All truly picturesque. We recommend that you try crabbing on the shoreline at least once during your stay - this simple activity is great for families.
A short drive away is Sutton Hoo. This National Trust site is home to two Anglo-Saxon cemeteries and has plenty to discover for both young and old. With lots of events and reenactments taking place throughout the calendar year, you can really see history come to life. Your closest market town is Woodbridge, and here too there is lots to do, from browsing the high street shops, to local food shops and eateries; yum!
Self Catering: Woodbridge has a plentiful selection of local food shops - including a fish hut at the Turban Centre, two bakeries, a deli and a greengrocers. There are also two Co-Op stores. Nearby Martlesham has the benefit of a large Tesco store and fuel station, and an M&S foodshop. Most big name supermarkets will deliver to Little Oakland.
Eating and Drinking out: Your closest pub is The Maybush in Waldringfield. Situated on the banks of the river - we recommend arriving early in order to get a table outside; the sunsets are to die for! Serving a good selection of locally sourced fish and meat, alongside pub favourites.
For a more varied affair, head to Woodbridge, where you will most certainly be spoilt for choice.
