Willow Cottage is a stylish, light and airy cottage recently converted from a barn set in its own grounds on the bank of a large, traditional Suffolk farm pond – a highlight of staying here is sitting on the decking, watching the sun set through the willow trees whilst admiring the various water fowl and birds around the pond. Maybe it is just possible to hear the occasional tractor driving along our country lane (some 50 metres away) but otherwise all is peace and tranquillity. Immediately outside the Cottage’s entrance gate is a bridleway with links to an extensive network of well marked public footpaths across the adjoining fields with stunning views over miles of unspoilt Suffolk countryside. There is also a well-worn path in the other direction to our very popular local pub!

There is also a well-worn path in the other direction to our very popular local pub! RSPB Minsmere and our Heritage Coast beaches at towns such as Aldeburgh and Southwold are about half-an-hour’s drive away. As the saying goes ‘so much to do….’!

Badingham’s pub, The White Horse is less than a mile away: it enjoys an excellent reputation for both food and craft beers, has spacious outdoor seating and is a great place to spend a summer’s evening. The nearest shop is a Co-Op in the larger village of Laxfield some three miles away. Framlingham is ten minutes away and is our vibrant local market town with a broad range of shops including a large supermarket, two petrol stations, eateries and coffee shops etc. Market days are on Tuesdays and Saturdays. It is also home to English Heritage’s Framlingham Castle and an impressive Parish Church.
