Location

Suffolk, England, United Kingdom

Metfield is a small pretty village, set on the edge of the Waveney Valley surrounded by a gently rolling landscape. There are many footpaths around the village and the quiet country lanes make cycling a joy.
The community village shop is open every day and stocks a good range of local produce. There is a farmers market held in the village hall the first Saturday of the month and the newly refurbished village hall has a friendly new bar open Friday and Saturday evenings selling local beers. Please check Metfield village hall website for other events eg quiz night, music night. This is currently closed due to covid 19.
Metfield is a quiet friendly village, a great place to escape the bustle of town and city.
The market towns of Halesworth and Framlingham are both within easy reach and worth exploring. The coast is 25 mins away by car.

I fell in love with Suffolk as a child and moved here 27 years ago with my husband Brian, a sculptor and our three sons. The quiet lanes, big skies and slow pace of living continues to draw people to this beautiful area. Ten years ago, a friend and I started Nips and Crumpets, a vintage tea party business. This satisfied our love of baking and providing hospitality. Since then I have been involved in the renovation of Meadowsweet and Queenie's Cottages to provide a welcoming and unique experience for our guests. I enjoy welcoming guests to our cottages and understand that they have come to relax, so respect their privacy. I live 2 miles away and will always help if needed. My passions include Art history, gardening, painting, interior design, all kinds of music- I am enjoying learning to play the piano in lockdown- beach combing, baking and going for walks with teddy our terrier. I love watching films at home in front of the fire of an evening and enjoy planning city breaks to explore the art and architecture of somewhere different.
