Characer home. Vaulted double bedroom. Single room child/ accommodating adult. 2 days min - exceptions if dates fit change-overs/diary. Underfloor heating, woodburner, garden, pets OK. Sky Plus TV/ WiFi. Free parking. Cosy escape...

The space

A little gem - perfect for the Suffolk coast - birdwatching, walking, concert going and many pretty villages and sights. Trains to Norwich, London, Bury, Cambridge for further sightseeing. Access to local gardens, castles and wonderful pubs and restaurants. The PERFECT cosy get away from it all. It IS a home and not a bland rental holiday cottage so there are the owner's things around! Warm welcome - the host is an experienced owner. Stairs are steep and the pavement is narrow so not for the elderly or infirm. The Cottage was home to very young children and guests with toddlers without difficulty please discuss further if you are nervous! To be clear - Family Friendly means I am very happy to accept children and the same applies to Pet Friendly, for well behaved pets!

Guest access

Use of the entire cottage for a min of preferably 2 nights. The listing says one night but I can only do this if I have enough change over time - it is my home too! Long weekends, weekly lets are welcome but it is not suitable for several months so please do not ask! It is a period cottage - not a sanitised boutique hotel, so please bear that in mind. Pretty designed garden, terrace etc. Small and steep cottage staircase so I repeat in this section that it is not suitable for disabled access. Roll top bath - hand held shower and antique taps (ie not perfect, but people love them). My cleaning ratings have been good but it is a period beamed cottage. Self service with good access to village shops and supermarket - award winning butcher. Good cafes locally - a friendly vibrant village. but no village pub - lots of others locally though, and take away food outlets including and excellent fish and chip shop and a good Co-Op store.

Interaction with guests

I am available locally and will greet you and talk you through everything when you arrive. IF you want to arrive very late I can accommodate this via conversation and you can let yourselves in. I leave basics for you to use tea, coffee, loo , a few starter logs and coal - just light the fire - you can bring more logs or buy them locally. I ra(URL HIDDEN)in London for four years which was highly successful and I do like to help guests with information if I can. This is a lovely cottage - it has it quirks and personality - I always get several 'wows'! Note - it is a cottage size hot tank so huge baths will not work!

Other things to note

There is a large supermarket locally and general stores and restaurants in the village a short walk away. There are cinemas in Aldeburgh, Leiston (we have our own in the village if you come on the third Saturday of the month) and Woodbridge. There are cultural events throughout the county, theatre and concerts in Ipswich, our nearest major shopping centre. Sutton Hoo is close by and the Suffolk Punch Trust. Orford, Southwold and Walberswick are great locations with wonderful pubs and shops. Bird watching is outstanding.

We found Wickham Marjet a good base for exploring this part of Suffolk with a view to moving here - close to the coast, great countryside and lively villages and towns. The cottage is lovely; we particularly enjoyed the exposed beams of the vaulted bedroom ceiling and our dogs appreciated the safe garden! Thank you, Denise, for helpful suggestions and for sharing your characterful and book-filled home!

This cottage is very beautiful and immaculately maintained. A very old and quirky cottage full of charm, very cosy and a totally relaxing. A hidden gem in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Perfect striking distance for lcoal attractions and the Snape Proms in particular. High recommended.

We had a lovely few days staying in this beautiful cottage. The garden is great for relaxing in after exploring the local area. Wickham Market is a great location for visiting the surrounding area. I recommend the cottage and would definitely return again in the future.

A pretty little cottage in a historic village with some helpful cafes and shops on hand. Beautiful walks locally and The Greyhound Inn in the neighbouring village is recommended for a special meal.

We didn't meet Denise, but arrival was smooth as we were met by her cleaner. The cottage is really beautiful and relaxing. We ate every meal in the lovely garden. The cottage itself is cozy yet roomy, and Denise has lots of nice pictures on the walls and fun decorating. It's also really nicely located for doing loads of good Suffolk things. We visited Orford, Snape, and Sutton Hoo easily. We'd happily visit again!

Denise's beautiful cottage was a delight - so homely and comfortable. The cottage is very characterful, it had everything we needed, and a lovely garden. It was nice to be able to take our dog too. As Denise advised, you do have to take care with dogs as the front door leads directly out onto the pavement and road outside - so we took extra care. Parking was easy and close. It is well worth a walk into the village, and it is in a really good location to explore the area.

I ran a successful B & B in central London for a number of years so I hope I know what guests like! My cottage will be let as a 'home' and not a (but can accommodate a single guest on that basis in the small room..). hope you will enjoy staying here. I work as a psychotherapist and had a long career in the Arts - mainly music and dance and am passionate about the performing arts. I have one son who works in post production TV who lives in London. I sing in a rock choir and help with our local film initiative - Wickham market Movies for which we won a Lottery Application. I love walking - we are close to the sea here - I also board dogs occasionally so my house is pet friendly. I love travelling and Morocco, Ireland, Holland and Prague are on the agenda for 2016. I do so look forward to meeting you!
