A Very Comfortable and Cosy Coastal Cottage
Sleeping four in a picturesque Suffolk village, just 15 minutes from the best of the Suffolk Coast at Aldeburgh and Orford.
Wren Cottage is a pretty little 16th Century cottage, 50 yards from the centre of Wickham Market; one of Suffolk's lovely unspoilt coastal villages.
Wickham Market is 15 minutes from the wonderful seaside location of Aldeburgh and the lovely little coastal village of Orford, which is one of my favourite places.
The village has 2 very good tea rooms, a couple of pubs, a Chinese and an Indian restaurant, a good Fish n' Chips shop and some interesting shops, including an award winning Butchers and a couple of larger food stores. There are some excellent restaurants and gastro pubs within walking distance; across the fields and along the footpaths, or a short drive away.
Its position is great for exploring the best of the Suffolk Coast and the interesting towns are just 10 - 15 minutes away:
Framlingham with its impressive Castle, restaurants, shops and antiques centres.
Orford on the coast, also with a very interesting Castle and an oysteridge, restaurants, smokehouse, pubs, quay and nature reserve.
Aldeburgh which is famous for its arts, crafts and restaurants as well as still being able to buy fresh fish from the fishermen on the beach, but no ice creams or amusement arcades.
