A 200 year old cottage, full of character and original features. Recently refurbished to a high standard.

Guest access

Reception Room

The front door opens into a warm, inviting reception room with ample room for muddy boots, walking shoes & coats. This room is great for relaxing or playing one of the board games provided. It is also a brilliant spot to watch the sun rise or set across the surrounding countryside. A sofa bed suitable for an adult or child is available in this room.

From here, you walk through to the open plan kitchen/living area.

Sitting Room

The sitting room has a colour TV, DVD, video, CD player, radio and plenty of local information for you to peruse. The wide-ranging DVD library has something to cater for most tastes. The cottage has full central heating, 365 days a year with individually controlled time clock and thermostat, to suit your own requirements. This room is furnished to make you feel as relaxed as at home. The settees are the perfect place to relax, unwind and cuddle up in front of the log burner.


The kitchen is well equipped and is fitted with an oven, microwave, electric hob, large fridge / freezer, dishwasher and washer / dryer. There is a full range of matching kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery to make cooking an easy and enjoyable part of your holiday. Cleaning materials, washing-up liquid and tea towels are also supplied.


From the kitchen, French doors open onto the enclosed private patio, which is ideal for eating out whenever it is sunny.

2 Bedrooms and Bathroom

The bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs. Admiral Cottage is over 200 years old, and the stairs are steep, which unfortunately makes it unsuitable for the infirm.

The comfortable bedrooms are beautifully co-ordinated with quality furnishings, blinds and curtains as appropriate, bedside lights and crisp bed linen.

There is a large double bedroom and a second bedroom, which has twin beds. Both bedrooms have original oak beams and stripped floors. We pride ourselves on the comfortable new beds and have had a stream of visitors comment on how they realise they need to buy new beds when they return home.

A modern bathroom including a powerful shower and nice new towels completes the upstairs.


The cottage shares the large front garden with Waterloo House, which was the old village shop. There is lots of grass for the children to play on and the garden to the front overlooks turf fields.


Parking for one car is available at the front of the cottage. There is ample parking at the rear of the cottage for additional cars.


Children are welcome at any age. A travel cot, high chair and stair gate are all provided free of charge in the cottage (please bring your own cot linen).

Tourist Information

Tourist information brochures, leaflets and guide books are provided in the cottage. There is also an information pack with instructions for all machines, information on local shops, pubs, restaurants and recreation providers, as well as the addresses of local doctors, dentists and hospitals.

A gorgeous, cosy cottage in a fantastic location. The photos don't do it justice! There is so much to do and see in the surrounding area for children and adults alike. We had such a lovely four days with our two young children and definitely hope to visit again soon.

We stayed at Jeff's cottage for three nights we had a fantastic time, the cottage was everything we needed very comfortable with great amenities. We had some lovely walks around the area and went out to Aldeburgh and Rendlesham forest which the kids and our dog very much enjoyed. Would definitely recommend and go back but for longer.

Thanks Kelly. We do have some lovely venues for younger kids and their pet dogs to run off their energy. I often go to Rendlesham forest to give my dog Coco a good run. I am glad you had a good stay. Come again soon. Regards Jeff

This little cottage is delightful. Cosy, full of character and in a peaceful, relaxing location. The website pictures don't do it justice- certainly a wow factor for us when we arrived. We had such a lovely time staying here with our two young grandsons. Thank you, Jeff for letting us stay.
