Queenie's Cottage is a traditional timber-framed Suffolk cottage

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4

Getting around
Neighbourhood overview
Metfield is a small pretty village, set on the edge of the Waveney Valley surrounded by a gently rolling landscape. There are many footpaths around the village and the quiet country lanes make cycling a joy. The community village shop is open every day and stocks a good range of local produce. There is a farmers market held in the village hall the first Saturday of the month and the newly refurbished village hall has a friendly new bar open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings selling local beers. The market towns of Halesworth and Framlingham are both within easy reach and worth exploring.
