An enchanting period semi detached cottage, which lies at the heart of the pretty Suffolk village of Sweffling and within walking distance of the delightful White Horse pub. The Cottage has been featured in various national publication in recent years which reflects the care taken by the current owners to conserve the cottage. There is scope to carry out further work if desired. The property retains many of its original features which include beams, floor bricks and fireplaces. There is a comfortable sitting room and a light and airy second living room/dining room which has French windows leading out to the garden. The kitchen, which is fitted with smart contemporary units, has a high vaulted ceiling and a fireplace with a solid fuel stove. There is a modern shower room on the ground floor and two double first floor bedrooms. There are pretty and manageable cottage gardens to the front and the rear together with a useful log store and a Victorian brick outbuilding at the end of the rear garden. Cottages of this style and character are becoming increasingly difficult to find and we therefore strongly recommend an early internal inspection.

The Cottage is ideally located for access to the Suffolk Heritage Coast, and the nearby market towns of Framlingham and Saxmundham. Framlingham is famous for its ancient castle. It has a market twice a week and excellent shops and restaurants. Saxmundham has a railway station with connecting services to London, Cambridge and Norwich via Ipswich. The town also has a market and both Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets. This part of Suffolk has become synonymous with writers, artists and musicians. There are wonderful galleries and music venues including the world class Snape Maltings Concert hall which is home to the Aldeburgh Festival. Other attractions include nature reserves at RSPB Minsmere, Havergate Island, North Warren and the seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. There are many local golf courses, excellent cycle routes and footpaths for dog walking including the popular open spaces at The Woodland Trust at nearby Pound Farm. There are sailing clubs on the Alde/Ore, Deben and Orwell.
