This larch-clad, ground floor studio has been lovingly decorated in the Scandi-style and has high vaulted ceilings and cosy furnishings creating a calm and serene holiday space for two. This really is a perfect bolt hole for couples wanting to rest and recuperate on the beautiful Suffolk Coast.
Everything in this studio is bright, airy and inviting. The kitchen, with its clean grey lines and pops of colour, has a very cool Smeg fridge and is well stocked. There's a little table for two, which makes a perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or rustle up a quick bite.
The lounge is very cosy with rugs, soft throws and a comfy squishy sofa with views of the garden and the castle beyond. Curl up with a book or a loved one and crack open a bottle of wine. There's a Smart TV if you fancy a movie night and the owners have provided some board games too for you to enjoy.
The living area leads on to a snug blue bedroom – a restful space with soft bedding to curl up on and enjoy a good night's sleep after a day of exploring. The luxury bathroom is particularly impressive with its pretty tiled floor, where you can wash off the day with a rainfall shower or relaxing bath and make use of the Plumb and Ashby toiletries provided.
When it's time to head out there's plenty to explore both on your doorstep and a little further afield. From bracing coastal walks and seaside strolls to muddy riverside rambles and long forest trails you'll be spoiled for choice.
Aldeburgh is a must visit and has a long pebble beach backed with pastel-coloured Victorian houses, fishing huts and boats. The fish and chips in this seaside town are absolutely worth the queue! For some real magic visit Covehithe, a stunning sandy bay completely unspoiled and only accessible by foot through the sand dunes. For swimming, the owners recommend Shingle Street, an isolated shingle beach where you can take a dip in the sheltered lagoon. And Walberswick is a fantastic stone and sand beach that is perfect for a spot of crabbing.
For food and drink you'll be equally spoiled. Start the day with a stroll to Pump St for bread, pastries and great coffee. Head down to the quay with its faded black clay huts and visit Pinney's deli where you can stock up on goodies for later. Take a walk along the river wall and enjoy a simple seafood lunch at Butley Orford Oysterage. And maybe spend the afternoon exploring the 12th-century Orford Castle or take a boat trip along the creek on the Lady Florence or across to the RSPB reserve at Orford Ness. For some fancy fare try The Unruly Pig, an award-winning gastropub serving a seasonal menu of delicious local produce. The owners have plenty of recommendations for days out and markets to visit, just have a look at their website for more information.
