Treat yourself to the perfect romantic escape. Breathe in breathtaking views, swim in a fresh water pond then soak away the worries of the world in a gorgeous hot bath. Either cuddle up in front of the fire with a glass of something relaxing or pop those steaks on your BBQ! This enchanting cosy cottage sits within a 75 acre estate, 20 mins from the coast of Aldeburgh and Shingle St. Utterly dog-friendly - a fairytale fantasy for you, your lover and your furry friend!

The space
It's fairytale because everywhere you look is beautiful and all yours to explore, set up picnics, light a BBQ or just lay down and look at the sky!
You overlook this picturesque moated medieval hunting lodge called Letheringham Lodge but are secluded and private in your own enchanting little cottage with electric gate access and parking in front.

The kitchen has everything you could need for an escape from the crazy world: induction hob and oven; fridge; cafetière, coffee, tea, milk, biscuits and a wee bottle of bubbly prosecco in the fridge! There is a microwave but no dishwasher.

There is a TV in the lounge and because we have a commercial grade internet connection, it is easy to stream films or catch up on missed programmes.

The bath in the upstairs bedroom is a complete luxury to soak away all your worries but if you are a shower person, there is a modern but intimate wet room with shower and toilet on the ground floor.

We provide infinite firewood for your woodburner so you may not want to ever leave your cosy little hideaway.

We are totally dog friendly (even providing dog shampoo and swimming towels) but since the cottage is compact and bijoux we do not recommend it for large breeds or more than one medium sized dog.

Guest access
When you book, you will be given a passcode to the electric gates and your front door. Come and go whenever you please (24 hours a day) and you are welcome to go everywhere around the estate. We can provide you with a portable BBQ so you can set up camp where you fancy! Please take your chairs and tables and set up camp where you like.

There are two other cottages on Airbnb but they have different entrances and different parking areas. One is back to back with yours but only one room has a shared wall so unlikely to be a problem.

There is easy parking for as many cars as you need next to your cottage.

Other things to note
The cottage is adorable because it is cosy. Please be aware that the lounge/kitchen is 3 metres by 3 metres and the upstairs bedroom is 4 metres by 3 metres. The downstairs shower room is 2 metres by 1.5 metres.

Because the stairs are steep and the toilet is on the ground floor we do not recommend this for infirm individuals who need to use the bathroom at night.

There is a porch with 2 chairs and a table which we invite you to move anywhere around the 75 acre estate. We also provide an outside dining area under a tree with another 2 chairs for your exclusive use but this specific cottage does not have it’s own garden.

Do search for Letheringham Lodge in the search engines to find out more about the history of the setting you will be staying in!

We are very close to the long distance cycle path number 1 - Dover to Shetland. This links in to the most amazing selection of cycling opportunities around us in Suffolk.
