Peppers Wash Cottage is lso within easy reach of the Suffolk Coast as well as being an ideal location from which to explore east Suffolk's villages and market towns.
Sitting close to the Alde and Valley, this cottage is also surrounded by some of the most picturesque countryside in East Suffolk through which there are numerous foot and bridle paths. The Suffolk Heritage Coast with the popular seaside towns of Aldeburgh lies just 15 miles to the east and Minsmere, the RSPB’s renowned nature reserve is only 15 miles away too.
Sorry, no pets, no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers.
The garden's a great place for kids (young and old) to run around, play ball games and hide and seek however it's not fully enclosed with the path at the side leading down the drive to the road so you will need to supervise 'little guests'.
The turning from the road into the drive is quite tight, I managed with my Audi A5 and found it best to reverse in. The drive's quite long and up to three cars can park in single file.
The stairs are typical of an old cottage, quite steep and with a turn at the bottom, carpeted all the way with a hand rail.
