Property details

An ideal retreat for couples, families, walkers, music lovers and bird watchers.

Surrounding local area

Chantry Cottage is opposite the imposing Church in Blythburgh which dominates the surrounding countryside and estuary. The Church, sometimes called the Cathedral of the Marshes hosts a number of events and concerts throughout the year. There is a pub in the village, The White Hart a short walk from the Cottage.

If you are interested in walking there are numerous footpaths heading towards Walberswick and Southwold taking in the views of the River Blyth. This also provides an excellent opportunity for bird and wildlife watching. RSPB Minsmere is approximately 20 minutes drive. Both Southwold and Walberswick have a number of excellent restaurants and cafes to tempt you following your exertions or join a tour of the Adnams brewery and distillery to find out how the drinks are made.

Looking further afield, Beccles sits on the border between Norfolk and Suffolk. This is a pretty market town with a number of independent shops. The town has access to the Broads via the River Waveney and there are opportunities to explore the river either on your own or with a crewed boat. If you are interested in historic houses Somerleyton Hall is a fine example of Victorian architecture with 12 acres of gardens designed by William Andrews Nesfield.

Although there is a lot on offer in the local areas surrounding Chantry Cottage you will find a cozy, peaceful hideaway when you return at the end of the day to relax in the cottage.

Guest reviews

We spent a wonderful weekend in your cosy cottage, befriended the local black and white cat who showed us around the church yard. Although the weather was changeable, we managed to explore the area. We had a succesful Christmas shop in the little shops in Southwold. Thank you for the wine and for the use of your cottage. Happy Christmas and a successful New Year!

Delightful and very comfortable cottage, lovely position in the village with splendid views of a truly magnificent mediaeval church, excellent location for exploring the Suffolk coast and AONB. Very well presented and exceptionally well equipped. The kitchen wanted for almost nothing. Bravo!

It was a short break with our elderly parents, the character of the cottage was superb, it was a very lovely cottage. The communication and instructions were very clear, the setting was superb as was the cottage.

This quaint, cosy and momely cottage has been an ideal base for exploring an area relatively new to us. So, we walked to Walberswick where we had an excellent lunch at the dog -friendly Anchor. Drove to Southwold and walked the whole lengthe of the esplanade - Susie's Cafe to be recommended! Drove also to quiet Dunwich and walked the dunes and forest. A lovely lunch of home-made food at the dog friendly Ship. The fine dinners at the White Hart here in Blythburgh and a walk along the now abandoned Southwold raiway line. All in all, a rewarding and relaxing stay and Poppy the Labrador puppy is fair worn out from all the exploring! Thank you.
