If you love waking up to birdsong, stopping to admire a passing dragonfly or simply enjoy all that Mother Nature has created, a holiday staying in Mirabelle must be on your to-do list!
Mirabelle is a charming mid-terrace holiday cottage in the quintessential Suffolk village of Kelsale, home of Suffolk Flora Preservation Trusts’ Simpsons Fromus Valley; a beautifully preserved wildlife site in a hidden valley with meadows, woodland, ancient trees and ponds open on specially selected days. Highlights include the river Fromus, which runs through a wooded gulley cutting a deep gorge out into the meadows through the length of the reserve before flowing through Kelsale village, and past Mirabelle’s door!
The 27 acres at Fromus Valley also support over 50 bird species including endangered species such as bullfinch, yellowhammer and skylark. The site provides a wildlife haven attracting high numbers of passing migrant birds in the winter, including fieldfares and redwings and acting as a refuge for resident bird species.
All of this is only a few minutes’ walk from your charming rural retreat in Mirabelle. From parking on the gravel drive you’ll enter this pretty mid terraced cottage into a very useful entrance porch with cloakroom to the left and the living / dining room to the right. To the left of the fireplace there is a door to the stairs and the kitchen is at the back with a stable door leading to the enclosed garden. With all the charm and character you’d expect from a 18th century cottage there is also all the modern convenience you need for a short break or family holiday at any time of the year.
Many of the furnishings and decorative items have been carefully hand-made by the owner, these beautifully unique items make this property stand out.
As mentioned previously, Mirabelle sits in the heart of Kelsale just over the brook, close to a children’s playground and park. The property is approximately a mile north of Saxmundham town centre with a range of independent shops, Waitrose, The Bell Hotel serving good food, and a number of cafes. There are also some excellent country pubs to choose from within a short drive, the Poachers Pocket within walking distance and Mirabelle is conveniently close to the larger towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh, so an ideal base for exploring the county.
