Property details

A simple, comfortable and well-equipped property in the attractive village of Peasenhall. Church View is a Victorian terraced cottage, overlooking the stunning 15th Century church of St Michael, located within easy walking distance of the village shops, pub and art gallery. Church View Cottage is a spacious two-bedroom property with good-sized bedrooms, a bright, well-supplied kitchen / dining area, a large modern bathroom and cosy living room with wood burner. A small enclosed courtyard at the rear of the property contains a table with seating for four people. This courtyard overlooks the church, offering a lovely, peaceful spot from which to make the most of the afternoon sun.

This charming Suffolk village boasts its own local shop and Post Office, as well as the locally renowned Emmett’s delicatessen and Creasy’s butcher. Countryside surrounding the cottage is some of Suffolk’s most stunning and is ideal for cycling and walking, with many quiet lanes and rural roads. The National Cycle Network runs through the village.

What better place to base yourself to explore the vibrant local art and music scenes; Minsmere’s renowned RSPB site or the picturesque market town of Framlingham, known for its impressive Norman castle, all of which are to be found within easy reach of Peasenhall.

With the pretty coastal towns of Aldeburgh, Southwold and Walberswick, boasting sand and shingle, piers and restaurants, beach huts and lighthouses, all less than 15 miles away from Church View Cottage, this really is a perfect spot from which to explore the best that Suffolk has to offer.

Approximate travel time is 2 hours from London by car and 1.5 hours from Cambridge. The nearest railway stations are Saxmundham or Darsham (4 miles away).

The Heritage Coastal towns

Made famous by Ed Sheeran, is the perfect town for a stroll, shop and glimpse of history – there’s even a Town Trail marking all the primary sites of historic interest.
Market Hill is the Town’s centre and hosts markets on Saturday and Tuesday offering great local produce together with trinkets and collectibles. There are excellent range of independent shops, cafés, tea shops, pubs and restaurants.

This charming coastal town lies at the mouth of the River Blyth within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ranked in the top six of beaches by the Sunday Times travel supplement, Southwold is home to the Adnams Brewery, famous lighthouse, a maize maze, colourful beach huts, an 800 ft long pier, art galleries, shops and pubs as well as the Blackshore Harborside for fresh fish and the ferry to Walberswick.

One of Suffolk's hidden gems, Walberswick is tucked away across the River Blyth from the much higher profile Southwold. The village is most famous for its crabbing. Try your hand anytime and there are many crabs to be caught and returned to the water. With a lovely sand dune backed beach this is probably one of the best beaches in the area for sandcastles.

Built by a wealthy Scottish barrister in the 1900s, and transformed into a fairytale holiday village, with Peter Pan islands in its man-made lake (the Meare), a 70ft fairytale “house in the clouds” and pretty mock-tudor homes, Thorpeness is everything an English seaside village should be. Boasting a golf course, a tennis club, boating lake, cafes, a great local pub, cycle routes, a beach as well as a number of ice cream shops, Thorpeness is the perfect holiday location.

A pretty coastal town on the river Alde in Suffolk which enjoys breathtaking views both seawards and following the River Alde inland. Possibly best known for having been the home of composer, Benjamin Britten and as the location of the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival. Aldeburgh remains an artistic and literary centre as well as a popular destination for holiday makers and sailors. Famous for many things - good food, great fish & chips, Aldeburgh Music, Maggi Hamblings' Scallop on the Beach being just a few.

Lying within the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Orford is a quiet, pretty village, steeped in history. The village grew in importance in the 12th Century when Henry II commissioned the Castle to be built. Orford is famous for its local oysters and smokehouses and has two shops selling a wide range of smoked produce. Pop into Pinney's in Orford to pick up some of the finest fresh fish in the county.

The internationally renowned Snape Maltings, five miles from Aldeburgh, is one of the world’s leading centres of music. It offers inspiring concerts and festivals throughout the year, from the flagship Aldeburgh Festival in June to the folk, world and jazz of the Snape Proms throughout the month of August. For visitors, Snape Maltings brings together outstanding concerts and events alongside distinctive, independent shops, cafes, galleries, walks and river trips, all set against a breath-taking expanse of reeds, water and sky.

Things to do


As well as Orford, mentioned above, there is a magnificent late 12th century castle in Framlingham. This small market town, boasting Ed Sheeran as one of its more famous offspring, is perfect for a stroll and lunch with a Town Trail marking all the primary sites of historic interest.

Leiston Abbey is made up of the mainly 14th-century remains of an abbey of Premonstratensian canons. Among Suffolk’s most impressive monastic ruins, with some spectacular architectural features.

Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. At this beautiful estate, with views over the River Deben, walk around the ancient burial mounds, learn about ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and visit the estate’s Edwardian house.


Suffolk has a tremendous coastline, stretching down from Norfolk in the north, through Lowestoft and down to Felixstowe and Shotley in the south, featuring sandy cliffs, dunes, bays and creeks. Covering a stretch of approximately 40 miles, Suffolk boasts several well-managed, award-winning beaches. Possibly best known, due to its sandy beach, multicoloured beach huts and pier is Southwold, which ranked in the top six of the UK’s best beaches in a Sunday Times travel supplement.

Stately Homes

Helmingham Hall’s gardens are perhaps its most spectacular feature, designed and maintained by the award-winning Lady Xa Tollemache, whose family have lived here since the 1480s. The Hall itself is a perfect example of a courtyard manor house; its four sides are surrounded by a moat, and every night Helmingham’s two draw bridges are raised, as they have been since 1510, leaving the hall an island.

You’ll find Somerleyton Hall in the heart of the Suffolk Broads, amongst swathes of parkland peppered with thatched cottages and the occasional windmill. Though its history dates back to the Viking invasion of East Anglia, this opulent hall is largely the work of two great Victorians and it is now one of Britain’s most well-preserved stately homes and gardens.

Kentwell Hall is one of Suffolk’s most unusual stately homes. A moated Tudor mansion full of surprises and a beautifully preserved interior. Explore it and you might stumble across a castle made of yew trees, a galleon, a two-dimensional maze, rare farm animals, and even some real-life Tudors going about their business. A great day out.



There is a coastal path from Thorpeness to Aldeburgh which is easy to navigate and takes you past Maggi Hambling’s controversial scallop on the beach.

The walk from Snape Maltings to Iken Church is through one of the prettiest parts of Suffolk, offering superb views along the River Alde.

At Dunwich and Minsmere, within a few minutes’ walk of the beach, are woodland and heath known for its birdlife and natural beauty.


For golfers with handicaps, Aldeburgh and Thorpeness have world-famous courses which must be booked in advance. Aldeburgh also has a 9 hole pay and play course as does Halesworth and Hinton.


Hire a rowing boats or kayak, take a picnic and row out to one of the many Peter-Pan themed islands around the Meare in Thorpeness
Hire a canoe, kayak or paddleboard at Iken and discover creeks and flood waters on the Alde estuary between Snape and Aldeburgh.
For a more adrenaline fuelled boating afternoon book either “the seal and windfarm” trip or a “drive of your life” experience aboard the high-speed RIB
Coastal Voyager in Southwold.


There are courts in Aldeburgh town as well as a tennis club in Thorpeness


Beccles Lido is a traditional outdoor, heated swimming pool. Try your hand at the impossible giant inflatable, put up between 1-3 daily in summer! Voted second in the BBC’s “Top 50 Things To Do In Suffolk” in 2014!

Combine a day at the Lido with a trip on the Big Dog Ferry.
