Property details

This picturesque, terraced, late-Georgian house, sitting in the heart of the beautiful village of Wenhaston, is an ideal retreat, particularly for walkers, music lovers and bird watchers. Flint Cottage combines charm and character with comfort and convenience. The cosy sitting room features a wood burning stove while the light and airy double bedroom upstairs overlooks the property’s pretty patio garden.

Wenhaston, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, inland from Southwold, Dunwich and Walberswick, is close to the RSPB’s Minsmere nature reserve – the location of BBC Springwatch. Wenhaston is the starting point for numerous walks along the coast or inland along the River Blyth to Halesworth and Blythburgh and is convenient for music lovers attending the Latitude Festival at Henham Hall and the Aldeburgh Festival and Snape Proms.

The Star and Queens Head pubs are both just a few minutes’ walk from Flint Cottage, serving home cooked meals and fine Suffolk ales.
Located opposite the cottage is the fine medieval church of St Peters, a church famous for the Wenhaston Doom, a superb medieval painting depicting the Biblical Day of Judgement.

Surrounding local area

Wenhaston is perfectly situated to explore the Suffolk Coast. Southwold and Walberswick are a short drive away or for the more adventurous you can cycle over to Walberswick and get the ferry across to Southwold.
It is also possible to cycle south towards Dunwich and RSPB Minsmere taking in the beautiful countryside which makes up part of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area offers superb opportunities for wildlife watching.
Besides the pubs in the village there are a number of other places locally that provide fantastic food. Southwold has a number of restaurants and cafes, try the Two Magpies Bakery for a tasty treat or The Crown serves food made with local produce. Darsham Nurseries is also highly recommended and they have various events and exhibitions on throughout the year alongside the plant nursery and cafe.
At the end of the day you can return to the peace and quiet of Flint Cottage and relax in the luxurious surroundings, choosing whether to have a glass of something in front of the wood burning stove or enjoy the seclusion of the Courtyard.

A perfect week in all ways. Have hugely enjoyed our first trip to Suffolk, exploring beaches, pubs, villages, churches and nature reserves. The cottage has been a delight nad we have felt completely at home here. Cassie our Labrador recommends: Covehite for best beach, The Queens Head at Blyford as most dog friendly pub (with most treats), The Sole Bay Fishing Company in Southwold for best seafood.
Thans for giving us such a wonderful basefor a delightful week in the autumn sun!

Cozy cottage in ideal location for Suffolk Heritage Coast
We loved using Flint Cottage as our base to explore the delights of the Suffolk coast and countryside. The village of Wenhaston is delightful and dog friendly with 2 excellent pubs close by and great walks on the doorstep. The Cottage is warm and cozy, whatever the weather, with a lovely garden for eating meals outdoors while listening to the birdsong. The kitchen is very well equipped, including a recipe book written by the owner to inspire you. We all loved it!

Our cocker spaniel is snoring on her blanket, completely satisfied and so are we. Flint Cottage is a fine starting point for day trips to the surrounding country side and beach towns. Also visited the game and country fair in Thetford. The cottage provided all we needed, especially on a few cold and wet days. Many thanks.
