Enjoy exploring this stunning part of Suffolk from this two bedroom cottage situated in the quiet village of Friston

Discover the spectacular Suffolk Heritage Coast with your delightful dog right by your side. Up to two of your four-legged friends are welcome to join you at this charming cottage, which is set in a complex of homes within the village. From here, explore the county’s beautiful heathland or tire yourselves out on its unspoiled sandy beaches, just 4 miles from your base in quiet Friston.

You and all your holiday companions will find your charming base just perfect for that spell away together. It will be a home-from-home to return to after all that fresh sea air. Cook up a treat in the kitchen, then pull up a chair in the dining room while your happy hound beds down in front of the wood burner. This inviting country-style room also features attractive exposed brick and beam work. Those wishing to watch TV can keep their dozing dog company in here while their companion might choose to retire to the garden room with a good book. French doors from here lead out onto the enclosed garden, where you and Fido can indulge in the privacy of your own outside space. Head upstairs at the end of your busy day to one of two bedrooms; the bathroom is also on this level.

Give your much-loved companions a new leash of life by following the Suffolk Coast Path from beach to beach. They will embrace the great stretches of sand at Southwold and Walberswick, approximately 14 miles away, with gusto. Afterwards, they might pick up a treat or two – and certainly a refreshing drink of water – while you tuck into fish and chips at one of the many dog-friendly pubs nearby.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Nice cottage well placed for visiting both the coast and surrounding countryside. Dog was in heaven. But unless you are very short having a bath is impossible and no shower

Plus: An ideal location for the East Suffolk coast and surrounding small towns. The Chequers Pub opposite is outstanding for friendliness and serves very good food. WiFi is good Minus: We did not enjoy a week without a shower and though I could get in and out of the bath, tall husband with arthritic knee had no chance. Would recommend for a short sRead moretay but not to older friends so answer below depends on which friend and with provisos. Hide

Generally a cosy little cottage with lots of charm if you enjoy the oldie world look, a nice relaxing small lounge and sunroom. We arrived on a very dull day so the inside seems very dark but as soon as the lamps were turned on it was fine, the location to Aldeburgh was great and close by other places of interest.

The second time we have stayed in this cottage. It was perfect after a very busy time for us. Lovely pub opposite and nice walks with the dogs. The owner had made it very welcoming.

This is a small ,cosy, well equipped cottage suitable for 2 people and a dog. The only drawback are the cramped, out of date bathroom facilities. Whilst the lack of space is obviously a problem the bathroom equipment and decoration could be improved.

Nice "old" cottage and very comfortable. Super position for days out and much to see/do in the area. Lovely pub opposite the cottage but not open on Monday and Tuesdays.

Perfect location for many coast and inland walks. Friday Street Farm shop nearby so all food can be bought locally, even has it's own butchers.

We were very tired. We had had a bad winter and this cottage was just perfect particularly the sun room. The village was quiet and the church is lovely. There is a Waitrose two miles away in Saxmundham.
