Centrally heated by oil-fired radiators the cottage benefits from two bedrooms. There is a sitting room with a fireplace, a separate dining room with a vaulted ceiling and double glazed bi-folding doors that open to a delightful cottage garden where there is a useful small brick outbuilding which has potential for use as a home office or studio. The property has been sympathetically renovated and boasts a new kitchen and bathroom. The owners have taken pains to ensure that the dining room and kitchen extensions remain in keeping with the original cottage which has great charm and character. An early internal inspection is strongly recommended.

Great Glemham lies in an enviable position along the upper reaches of the Alde valley, between Framlingham and the Suffolk Heritage Coast. There are fabulous village walks through open undulating countryside, an enclosed recreation area: The Woodland Trust, which is popular with dog walkers , and cycle routes which lead along the smaller country lanes to Blaxhall, Snape and Orford. The nearby market town of Framlingham, which is famous for its ancient castle, has excellent shops and a supermarket with first class schools in both the state and private sector. There are two very good farm shops at nearby Farnham and Marlesford. The world class Snape Maltings Concert Hall is within a short drive as is the seaside town of Aldeburgh. Nature reserves in the area include North Warren, Minsmere, Havergate Island and Shingle Street. At the far end of the village, the 309th Bomb Group and Mighty Eighth Air Force are celebrated in the fascinating Control Tower museum which stands proud over the former World War II American Air Base.
