Property details

A thousand years of history on the doorstep! A lovely 200-year old period country cottage next to a Grade I listed Saxon Church in the ancient rural Suffolk village of Bruisyard, near Framlingham. Sleeping up to four comfortably, or five as required, in three attractively decorated bedrooms, Church View is ideal for short breaks or longer stays, country days out and cosy nights in!

As well as being perfectly located for exploring Suffolk, just twenty minutes from the pretty seaside towns of Aldeburgh, Southwold, Orford and all the stunning Suffolk Heritage Coast has to offer, this cottage is ideal for birdwatching, walking, cycling or just enjoying the peace & quiet. At night the dark skies of Bruisyard are perfect for star gazing.

Church View is a delightful, cosy cottage with its own pretty, enclosed garden to the rear and a 4-Star Visit England assessment.

Surrounding local area

Bruisyard is a quiet village situated in the Alde valley with easy access to both the coast or towns in land. Although there are lots of walking routes from the cottage you will need a car or bike to go further afield to explore. Framlingham is a 10-minute drive and has a number of restaurants and cafes serving local food. Leo’s Deli has delicious sausage rolls or try the baklava for a tasty sweet treat. You can watch the world go by in the market square while having some lunch at The Dancing Goat. Saxmundham is a 10-minute drive towards the coast and has two supermarkets although there are a number of farm shops in the area providing seasonal produce. Garnett’s in Hacheston and Friday Street Farm Shop are both worth a visit.

Guest reviews

We have just returned from a week at Church View, Bruisyard and wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had. The cottage was immaculate, clean and well appointed, everything about it is to a high standard, the fixtures and fittings, the quality of the workmanship, the crockery, the outdoor furniture, the beds and bed linen, towels and even the hand soap! Some lovely touches on arrival with a home made cake which was delicious, a nice bottle of wine and some milk that all showed great attention to detail. The information in the handbook was spot on as well with some good advice about places to visit and things to do.
Neighbours were friendly and helpful, one of them told us about the Country Fair at Heveningham Hall which proved to be a grand day out.
