Fen Cottage Walberswick ideal holiday cottage for couples

A freshly and stylishly renovated three bedroom cottage with plenty of residual charm and bags of Suffolk seaside light. Tucked away from, but very close to, the green (slide and swings), the beach, the ferry and two pubs. Sensitively renovated in 2021 to high Eco spec it has super insulation, triple glazing, EV charger, air source heat pump, and a scrupulous attention to environment friendly detail.

Of the three lovely bedrooms (two double and one twin), two have extensive views over the marshes towards Southwold and the harbour. From the Juliet balcony in the principal bedroom one can view both sunrise and sunset. The twin bedroom has a floor to ceiling window with Harbour views.

Fen Cottage is timber clad and has a stable door front entrance into the main sitting and dining space with its original brick chimney and open log fire.  There is a back entrance hallway leading into the spacious open plan, cook-friendly kitchen with a large bay window seat suitable for breakfast, which overlooks the courtyard back garden. Outdoors is a single parking space with EV charger and a sunny sitting spot.

Fen Cottage offers a year round opportunity to sample the high comfort, low carbon* lifestyle in a beautiful setting in one of England’s loveliest seaside villages.

Guest reviews

Local Area

Pub: There is the Anchor and the Bell Hotel, in the village, for Adnams ales and much more. Both receive good foodie reviews . Sole Bay Fish Company and the Harbour Inn are just across the river, booking recommended. Plenty more eating places in Southwold or just along the coast that you can drive, walk or bike to, take-away service too!

Shop: The Co-op is the village general store, and Black Dog Deli serves delicious home made food and stocks locally sourced coffee, baked goods and usual deli goods. More shops and a cafe situated on the village green.

Beach: Easy walk to Walberswick's sandy beach or to Southwold beach via the Bailey bridge or local ferry. Stretches of sand and shingle, sand dunes and further walks along the beach to Dunwich or Covehithe.

Other Local Attractions:

The quirky seaside town of Southwold with its traditional pier is an easy walk or cycle ride  away, across the Bailey Bridge or along the river wall beside the Blyth where you can watch yachts and fishing boats.  A special treat is catching crabs from Wally's bridge at Walberswick harbour and the 'lost city' of Dunwich is a short drive away or walk along the beach, where you can visit the Dunwich Museum near the Ship Inn or explore forest walks and relax at the famous fish and chip shop on the beach. 

Aldeburgh with its interesting array of local shops (more famous fish and chips) and hostelries, Thorpeness (the UK's first holiday village with its 60 acre boating Meare and quaint architecture), Orford and the internationally renowned Snape Maltings Concert Hall, shops, tepee cafe and walks beside the river (canoeing at Iken) are an easy half an hour's drive away.

RSPB Minsmere Reserve is well known for its avocets, marsh harriers and bitterns. 
The Eel's Foot pub at Eastbridge is a good starting point for a circular walk to Dunwich Heath tea room, the RSPB reserve and across the marshes to visit the stained glass installation in the ruins of the monastery. The National Trust properties in the area include Dunwich Heath and Sutton Hoo, featured in the film 'The Dig' and English Heritage's Orford Castle (wonderful views from the battlements)and Framlingham Castle are well worth a visit.

There are numerous footpaths for dogwalkers too..  and cycle paths, and golf, clay pigeon shooting and horse riding are all available locally.
