The property

Steps rise from the drive at the side of the L shaped cottage to a large raised patio where the door opens to the entrance hall. The original barn has been converted into a wonderful open plan living space with seating around the modern wood burning stove, a dining area, and well-equipped kitchen with great views. The beautiful bedroom at the other side of the hall has two sets of double doors encouraging you to make the most of the idyllic location and a smart ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom sits between the hall and bedroom. As the name implies, Bird Cottage is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy sights and sounds of the local birdlife – frequent visitors including barn owls, little owls and greater spotted woodpeckers with their distinctive bouncing flight. Enjoy walks through neighbouring meadows down to the river where there are kingfishers and otters, or have a game of tennis (by arrangement with the owners). There’s ample parking, an east-facing patio with bistro-style table and chairs for morning coffee and the large south-facing terrace to relax as the sun moves round. Ground Floor There’s a warm welcome as you enter the light hallway with bathroom and bedroom doors opening off it and steps leading through the original timber door-frame into the lofty open plan living space. Living Space Wonderfully light and airy with a high ceiling supported by exposed beams and stud work. Double doors open from the living area to the east-facing terrace and private garden – great for the summer months, and a modern designer log burner exudes heat throughout the room in the winter. The sitting area’s furnished with a sofa and a couple of comfy armchairs with an ottoman and large TV whilst the dining area has a circular table with four chairs plus butlers and console tables. Equipped with electric oven, grill, ceramic hob with extractor, and a slimline dishwasher, the view of the surrounding countryside from the expanse of windows in the kitchen is stunning. A stable door opens to the south-facing deck – ideal for dining in the fresh air in the summer months. Bedroom A perfect place for a good night’s sleep, this spacious and elegant double aspect room has a super king zip and link bed so you can be set up as a twin on request. Two sets of double doors open to the front patio and there’s a handsome antique wardrobe, bedside drawers, inviting chair and an A frame mirror. En Suite Bathroom This smart Jack and Jill bathroom; with ample space for the bath, double walk-in shower, basin, WC and heated towel rail; conveniently has doors from the bedroom and entrance hall. Outside Bird Cottage is located on a working farm in rural Suffolk; the detached L shaped cottage wraps round a large curved south facing patio - a sun trap for those seeking to soak up some rays - which is furnished for relaxing in the open air and enjoying the birdlife and scenery and well designed to give guests privacy. There’s also a smaller secluded east-facing patio and garden with bistro-style table and chairs. There is private allocated parking for up to 3 cars. The owners live a short distance away, enough to give you the reassurance of twinkling lights in the night but not too close for comfort and they invite you to enjoy walks through the meadows where you’ll see red poll cattle grazing in the summer, down to the river to enjoy exceptional bird and wildlife. If you’re feeling more energetic you can also have a game of tennis by prior arrangement.




Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
