Rose Cottage Wenhaston
A characterful beamy 17th century cottage, central in a row of three which have been village shop, pub and early dame school. Original inglenook fireplace and brick floors, ideal for one or two couples, and one or two dogs welcome also! Located by Blackheath, there are good walks from the door, a village pub, shop and church nearby.
Had a fantastic fortnight here in this beautiful cottage, the wood burner has certainly kept us warm and cosy!
We have spent many hours in Southwold- our dog Skippy loves the beach, especially Gun Hill, and we enjoy refreshments in the Pier cafe.
Looking forward to our next visit and thanks for having us. It was good to meet you Trish - you are always so helpful and accommodating when we book. Thanks also of course to Maggie and to Jenny for presenting the cottage to us so clean and tidy and welcoming (the bottle of wine is a lovely gesture!) L J A & Skippy January 2019
Book now: email or phone Trish for short breaks or weekly lets.
