About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located in the quiet village of Eastbridge, which is about midway between Southwold and Aldeburgh. The centre of the village is the Eel's Foot pub, which offers fantastic local beers and excellent pub food. The famous RSPB bird reserve at Minsmere is within walking distance of the cottage. Rare birds, such as barn owls, marsh harriers, avocets, bitterns and nightjars can be seen at the reserve and elsewhere in the area and frequently from the garden of the cottage. There is a lot to do in local area throughout the year. The coast offers beautiful beaches at Dunwich, Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Walberswick. The nearby village of Dunwich was once one of the largest ports in England, but most of the old city now lies under the sea. The interesting museum explains th...
How to get there
