Situated on the edge of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this two bedroom cottage offers a great base from which to explore the area.

With its enclosed lawn and comfortable living space, this cosy Suffolk cottage could suit you and your canine companions down to the ground. Welcoming up to four guests and two dogs, the holiday home, which is part of a complex, is also well-positioned for long country walks and reaching the famous Suffolk Heritage Coast, with its broad beaches and big skies.

Set in the village of Friston, on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the cottage centres upon an open-plan kitchen/diner. The lounge is where content canines will enjoy basking in the warmth of the wood burner at the end of the day while you relax in front of the TV or plan the next day’s fun. You will also find a WC and a porch with a washing machine and tumble dryer at this level, while steep stairs lead up to two bedrooms and a bathroom. When the weather is fine, the attractive gardens at this holiday home will delight your whole party, especially those with four legs. While you dine on the raised deck, they will be able to frolic in safety and when you return home from a long country walk, you can douse muddy paws under the tap and let them dry off in the sun.

This part of the world is known for the warm welcome it extends your doggy friends. Take your holiday hounds down to the famous beaches at Southwold and Walberswick, approximately 14 miles away, or along the Suffolk Coast Path with its magnificent scenery. Let them cavort on some areas of heathland or head off through stretches of woodland as there are many places along the way where they can run free.

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

Lovely tiny cottage in a great rural location, very welcoming and friendly owner who helped us charge our electric car. All key equipment and features were fine. Very quiet, close to a lovely pub and some good walks from the door.

Lovely compact cottage in a quiet village. Excellent pub nearby with friendly staff and great food. Although no shops in walking distance, there's a large Tesco & Waitrose just a short drive away. Snape Maltings nearby which is highly recommended for lovely walks, shops and food. We had a really enjoyable break.

Very peaceful location, even with a road right nearby. The cottage is lovely and comfortable. The stairs to the bedroom are very steep and would not suit an elderly person. It's lucky there is a downstairs toilet which saves having to go up and down the stairs. The kitchen and dining room is very spacious. For tall people mind your head on the doorRead moreways. Hide

Great location for exploring the area and a large garden perfect for the dogs. Bonus is a great pub just across the road. However although the bed was comfy and the shower more than adequate the decor and fixtures and fittings are sadly dated and showing wear and tear.

Lovely cottage in a fabulous location. The farm shop at Friday Street carries an excellent selection of local produce, along with a superb butcher. Snape Maltings is only 2 miles away, and the Viking MTB trail can be reached in under 20 minutes by bike.

The cottage was well situated and the garden fully secure for our dog. The lounge needs a comfortable sofa as nothing is that relaxing. It suits itself to a couple as it has bunk beds in the second bedroom but I would suggest the stairs are to steep for very young children
