We provide a travel cot and high chair. The detached cottage was built in the early 1980's in a distinctive Arts &Crafts style and offers spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to 5 guests.It has recently undergone a complete program of refurbishment including the addition of an en-suite shower room so that both bedrooms have their own facilities.The spacious kitchen diner opens onto a patio area which in turn leads to a private garden.This feature ensures that it is an excellent place for those with children to stay providing a safe play area where they can be easily supervised while you relax..A twenty five foot sitting room allows ample space whilst inside the property with comfy, squidgy sofas. Electric heating to all areas makes the house cosy and an ideal place whatever the weather is like outside. All beds have high quality 100% pure cotton bedding. We have a travel cot and high chair, saving you space in your car for that extra bucket and spade. Just a five minute walk away the village centre consists of the old A12.This ancient coaching route that originally connected Gt Yarmouth to London is now by passed to form an attractive and pedestrian friendly area with village store,pub and church.Wangford dates back to the eleventh century and much of the main street is comprised of listed buildings that form a picturesque backdrop for a relaxing stroll. Of course if your tastes extend to wild nightlife Southwold offers a wide range of possibilities with an excellent selection of bars and restaurants.By daytime there are a wide variety of walks around the town,by the old fishing harbour or, crossing the footbridge into the village of Walberswick. Further afield the market towns of Halesworth (6miles) Beccles (8miles) and Bungay (12 miles) offer many interesting possibilities for shopping,dining or just strolling around looking at the old buildings that proliferate.The fine city of Norwich is 25 miles distant and the old fishing ports of Lowestoft and Gt Yarmouth 10 and 20 miles respectively.To the south the seaside town of Aldeburgh and the nearby Snape Maltings cater for those of a more cultural disposition. In short,if you are staying at Garden Cottage for a weekend,a few days or a whole week there should be no shortage of things to do.We live on a separate part of the same one acre site as the cottage so if you have any queries or requirements someone is always available to attend to your needs.We are sure that you will enjoy your stay in Suffolk More

About the neighbourhood
Wangford is a small, friendly village in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. There is a well stocked Village Store and Farm Shop. The beautiful 800 year old church of St Peter and St Paul is the focal point of the village. The name Wangford comes from the fact that the River Wang runs alongside the village. There is a good bus system to Southwold, Ipswich, Lowestoft and Norwich. Henham Park is within walking distant and the Latitude Music Festival is held there annually, as well as Game and Country Fairs and the Grand Steam Rally. Minsmere is just 20 minutes away.
