Local owners have lavished attention to detail on this cottage and are welcoming and available if there are any queries. The newly installed central heating was a little technical for us to follow instructions, it...

Meadow Cottage is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the countryside. It is just a mile from the entrance to the RSPB Minsmere reserve and as such is the perfect place for nature lovers.

We had such a brilliant stay at Meadow Cottage. Our first visit was for New Year, so the cottage was beautifully decorated and still felt really festive (the owner gave us the option of decorations still up or not).

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 explain...
