There is a secluded patio framed by box hedging and shaded by an established magnolia tree. At the back of the cottage are a pair of brick and tiled outhouses, one of which serves as a utility room, the other, which is used for storage retains its old Victorian copper. At the north end of the property is a semi-detached timber barn which offers great scope for conversion to an outdoor work space. The property also benefits from a single garage.

Golf courses and sailing can be found nearby and at Southwold and Aldeburgh, and the nearby Snape Maltings complex is home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Music Festival. There are ancient castles to explore at Framlingham and Orford and many remarkable churches including Blythburgh's 'Cathedral of the Marshes'.
