Property details

Church View provides a wonderful retreat for a short break or a longer stay in the tranquil village of Bruisyard which can be traced back to the Domesday Book. The cottage, which is beautifully furnished is warm and homely with a lovely log burner providing a cosy sitting room at the front of the property and the kitchen with dining space to the rear. The stairs off the kitchen lead to two bedrooms on the first floor along with the bathroom. The bathroom has a bath with shower over. The third bedroom is in the eaves with exposed beams and a single bed. Both of the beds on the first floor can be split into single beds if required.

There is a small garden area to the front of the property with a larger enclosed garden to the rear that leads to a sun-trap terrace complete with chairs and a table. A lovely place to enjoy the sunshine with your favourite drink. The owners are happy for one four legged friend to accompany you on your holiday and there are numerous walks and footpaths leading from the village to explore the local countryside without having to go further afield.

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 inland. 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 besides the imposing castle, has a number of independent shops, cafes and restaurants and a vibrant market held on Saturdays and Tuesdays with lots of local produce on offer. It also 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.
There are a number of pubs in the neighbouring villages of Rendham, Badingham and Great Glemham if you don't fancy cooking. These offer excellent food and are dog friendly and for the more adventurous are walkable or easily within biking distance.
It is a short drive over to the Heritage Coast (approximately 20 minutes) where you can explore the Victorian seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. Or head to the wide open spaces of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which presents lots of wildlife and bird watching opportunities.
Further afield, Woodbridge is home to a working tide mill and Sutton Hoo, the Anglo-Saxon Royal Burial ground is just outside the town.
Church View is a great place to base yourself for a short break or a week, whether you want to walk, visit the historic sites in the area, head to the beach or simply relax in the very peaceful surroundings with the wonderful views and wildlife on offer. With the dark skies there is even the opportunity for some star gazing. You are sure to feel an awful lot more relaxed when you head home than when you arrived.

Guest reviews

What a treat to stay here, the quiet rural location with beautiful countryside, quaint villages and cosy pubs was a real treat..... it was everything we wanted for our long weekend break.

This cosy cottage in a country setting provided a great base and home from home while working away. The cottage is very well decorated and fitted out. Wine and a cake on arrival plus fire set. First class.

Lovely cottage, lovely bottle of wine and cake waiting for us, and very kindly we were allowed to check out a little late. The wifi can't handle much at all, but luckily we spent our time outside on walks or by the fire so we hardly noticed. A real highlight for us was the lovely neighbours who were so friendly and pointed us in the direction of the most incredible pub, the White Horse in Sweffling. Thanks so much!

We had such a lovely stay at this idyllic spot. The house was spotless with particularly lovely decor in the main bedroom - so cosy. It was very warm and comfortable - we lit the wood burner in the sitting room too. We were welcomed with a delicious homemade coffee cake and a bottle of wine - such a lovely touch. We had some lovely walks from the house in to the gorgeous countryside with the dog as well as trips to Aldeburgh, Southwold and Framlingham all of which are nearby. If we weren’t moving to Suffolk ourselves, we would definitely be back!

We found the cottage extremely comfortable, warm and homely. The “welcome cake” was delicious and the wine much appreciated. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this lovely cottage to anyone looking to stay in Bruisyard

A friendly welcome to a beautiful, well appointed cottage in a wonderfully tranquil location but close enough to Framlingham and the coast for trips out. Lots of lovely pubs nearby for cosy meals out if you don’t want to stay home but why wouldn’t you with the gorgeous log fire?

The cottage is lovely and definitely worth the 4 star rating. Richard and sue are great hosts and there was cake and wine for us on arrival which was very thoughtful and greatly received. The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to see and do. The amenities are fantastic and a real home from home. We will be recommending it to our friends and family and hope to return again if we ever visit the area again.

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.
