With its own unique charm and character, this holiday home enjoys a beautiful location on the slopes of the Alde Valley.

With its own unique charm and character, this holiday home enjoys a beautiful location on the slopes of the Alde Valley.

Nestling in 15 acres of ancient meadows, woodland and orchard on the slopes of the Alde valley, these three holiday cottages have been sensitively converted from the outbuildings of nearby Cransford Hall. Featuring an Edwardian walled garden, the grounds are a refuge for a variety of wild birds, including owls. Of individual style and character, the cottages boast exceptionally well-equipped kitchens and fittings, furnishings and fabrics of the highest quality.
Each has its own private garden area with furniture, all enjoy shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, pool table, table tennis and a children’s area with toys and games. There are excellent walks, too, and facilities for croquet and other lawn games.
Within walking distance is Bruisyard with its Saxon church. Framlingham (4 miles) is a small market town with shops, restaurants and inns; in its picturebook setting, the 12th-century castle dominates the town. Sutton Hoo, with its visitor centre, is just a 20-minute drive away. Aldeburgh (about 12 miles) is popular for sailing and famous for its music festival and concerts at Snape Maltings. The coastal area is an excellent one for bird-watching, particularly at the RSPB reserve of Minsmere (10 miles). Sports centre, golf and riding all within 20 minutes’ drive.

The Foundry (BER), The Pottery (BES) and Gardeners Cottage (BEX) can be booked together to accommodate up to 13 guests.

    We had a wonderful time at The Pottery. The accommodation was delightful, quirky, clean and well presented. But most of all we loved the garden. We were stressed when we arrived after a long journey but half an hour in the garden restored us. The walled garden was a dream, beautiful flower borders and well cut lawns. On our first morning, we saw a hare hop along the path. In the evening we sat and watched bats. Yes, we would love to return to the pottery, again and again.

    Very peaceful with views out to orchard and farmland, we used outside table and BBQ even in October. Cottage is warm and cosy with good bathrooms. Nice to have access to Gardens and Play area. Very poor wifi provision and cottage LAis all electric and wind caused power cut. Walks from the door plus easy access to Framingham, for castle and shops, and reasonable drive to Minsmere and the coast.

    Response on behalf of the owner; The positive comments are much appreciated. Unfortunately for the WiFi, whilst fibre and superfast broadband are getting closer, they have not got to us yet. In the meantime the WiFi is quite adequate for emails and general browsing. It is located in the Games Room, as per the cottage description.

    As I have already reported Wifi should not be advertised with this property. It is none-existent and is only available in the games room which is situated well away from your property. Lovely location but one of the children beds continually falls apart. From reading previous reviews this has been reported but continues to be a problem. Paying for electricity was another unexpected expenditure. On the whole lovely location but poorly advertised.
