Eva's Cottage Wenhaston

A charming and cosy mid 1800’s terraced cottage, set in the heart of the village and a short walk from an award winning pub. Eva’s cottage was completely refurbished in 2017/18 and offers a double and single bedroom suitable for three adults or a couple with a child age 10 years plus. Downstairs there is a cosy living room with a Clearview wood burner leading to a well equipped kitchen and wonderfully light dining room which has French doors onto the sunny patio and mature garden. A private path to the side of the cottage leads to Church Common which is at the bottom of the garden. One dog welcome to stay here too! 

Guest Reviews:

Hi Trish, as said, here's short review for website.

Have just spent another lovely week in Eva's cottage, Wenhaston. Our second and have booked again for next year. 
The cottage is beautifully maintained, so clean and homely with everything necessary for a perfect break no matter what the weather. Ideally situated for plenty of dog walking around a very
pleasant village location. Best wishes Jim and Sue, May 2021


We had a very good stay at Eva's Cottage which was all good and as expected, so thank you to whoever prepared it. RB April 2021

Reporting to say that we loved Eva’s Cottage and everything there was just right. The cottage is perfectly equipped and extremely comfortable and peaceful. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely want to return one day. RW 14 Aug – 22 Aug 2020

Guest reviews

  • We had a lovely stay at Eva's cottage. It was very clean and well equipped. Parking was no problem as we were able to park right outside. The garden was very nice and secure for Teddy our Welsh Terrier. It is an ideal location for the lovely walks around Wenhaston and for visiting the coast. We hope to return next year. Kind regards P&LG April 2021


    To stay anywhere is the present Covid times is strange but this house and this area has been a godsend. True we had lovely weather but, my goodness, what a lovely cottage – thanks! M&CL Loveland 25 July – 1 Aug 2020

    Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing and refreshing few days – back to old haunts in lovely Suffolk. The cottage is beautifully clean and well equipped and a great base for exploration. I&S G 29 Aug – 4 September


    We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is superb and so well decorated and equipped. Hopefully we will be able to fully appreciate the local pubs, etc., next time. JP 3 Oct – 9 Oct 2020
    Trish says: So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for booking for spring 2021!


    Thank you for your superb cottage. We have had an excellent week, even with Covid restrictions we have enjoyed ourselves. Your cottage is just so comfortable and warm and a delight to come back to after a busy day. C&R S 9 Oct – 16 Oct 2020


    Beautiful, comfortable and clean cottage – very cosy. Would definitely revisit. H&S B 30 Oct – 2 Nov 2020

  • Lovely cosy cottage, we’d love to come back soon. Really well planned and laid out. Hattie (standard poodle) loved her early morning walks on the common at the back. Kathy, Phil and Hattie  October  2019


    Our second visit to the cottage and just as enjoyable as the first. Too many places to mention but especially loved Halesworth, Beccles and a trip by train to Norwich. Wherever you find yourself people are friendly and warm. David and Susan  October 2019


    Wonderful base for a very relaxing holiday. Very well equipped cottage, beautiful countryside and everyone very relaxed and friendly. Love the church opposite – not publicised enough! Thanks for the goodies. Mr and Mrs Gates  September 2019


    We’ve had a lovely week in this very pretty and comfortable cottage – everything we could possibly need has been thought of. We particularly love the dining room and garden, and Dexter (dog) has loved watching the squirrels and meeting other dogs on the footpath beside the cottage! Thank you Trish for your help . We’ll see you next year. Jo, Jamie and Dexter  September 2019

  • Thank you for a wonderful stay. The cottage is amazing, with all our needs provided. The weather was also kind to us so we could explore and enjoy the wonderful cottage garden. J&MM September 2019


    The perfect location for a lovely, relaxing break – thank you! We looked long and hard on the internet and Eva’s Cottage turned out to be everything we were looking for and more. P,M&SW August 2019


    We had such a happy week here in April that we couldn’t help coming back for our summer holiday. Eva's cottage remains our favourite amongst the holiday cottages we know and we very much hope to see it at other times of the year. It feels like a home, furnished in impeccable taste. LR August 2019


    So lucky to have stayed in this beautiful cottage. So central to all the places we visited and it’s a perfect place to access all the walks in the area. And the beach is only 10 minutes away. The cottage is beautifully decorated and every thought possible has gone into it. Would definitely recommend to others. Thank you so much! S&MW August 2019

  • The first guest to stay at Eva's Cottage but I certainly won't be the last! This tastefully decorated little cottage is a cosy retreat for a couple and just perfect for a solo visitor too. Miranda has thought of everything ~ the bottle of Adnams (of course!) was a lovely touch. 

    It has been delightful sitting out in the patio garden with just birdsong for company and the heady scent of summer flowers in the evening. The little front garden is brimming with cottage garden plants also and is beautifully tended.

    There are leaflets and information plus maps on how to spend your days. I know the area well as I spent my childhood growing up in Suffolk ~ the draw to come back to visit Southwold & Aldeburgh is always there. This time a first visit to covehithe beach didn't disappoint.

    Woodbridge and its Tidemill and River Deben, Shingle Street and Snape Maltings are perfect for days out too. Take a boat across to Orford Ness to see the lighthouse, before it is reclaimed by the sea, you will be amazed by the wilderness and solitude!

    Walberswick has become a firm favourite that I always visit ~ walking across the marshes and sandlings here and all the footpaths in the village here itself are magical.

    Don't forget to explore Wenhaston Church opposite ~ the Doom is spectacular. Also, enjoy a drink and delicious food at 'The Star' pub up the road ~ live music is a regular feature too.
    After the excitement of a day exploring coming back to Eva's Cottage is a delight!
    Thank you Miranda and Trish for a perfect stay ~ I really don't want to leave but I'm sure I will be back! Shelagh June 2018
